Atmosphere - A lot to do with the weather, as consumption generally occurs outdoors. That said, on a beautiful day/night in hill country it cannot be beat. The serving bar and brewery itself are a charming metal and stone building that feel so right in this setting.

Quality - The beers speak for themselves. I enjoy nearly everything they make.

Service - Great folks working as fast as the beer allows. Large crowds can lead to longer waits. They have an outdoor pouring station to help on busy days, but sometimes demand is so high there is little that can be done.

Selection - If you enjoy farmhouse styles, you get the feeling of a kid in a candy store. Many guest bottles and draughts are also available.

Food - Stanley's Farmhouse Pizza is an adjoining, separate business. Therefore, I am not adding them to the review score of Jester King. I look forward to a day when additional food options become available, such as during special events when food trucks are on site.

Value - Like anything, you get what you pay for. Well worth the price.

This is hands down the most fun spot to come out and bottle share. Maybe unless it is wicked hot and humid out. But still, I love the beer, the people, the scenery and event the chicks can be pretty hot here. Check it out, you won't regret it.

I will go here every chance I get, which isn't that often as it's a 12 hour drive for me. But I've done it before, and I will definitely do it again.

When here on Sunday afternoon by myself. 8/24/14 didn't really know what to expect which was probably a good thing walking in with an open mind. Headed towards the main barn when out of the blue some girl comes running up to me to card me. She kindly explained the lay of the land which was helpful as it is pretty much a Texas prestige hillside with picnic tables placed randomly about and an odd tent off to the one side that is the "outdoor station". Proceeded to go into the main tasting area as I needed to use the restroom which was occupied so I had to go use a port a john. I realize they are building new bathroom facilities but a port a john in 100* Texas heat is what you'd think it is. After that went back into the tasting area and grabbed a small pour of la vie en rose and started a tab. No seating at the bar so I went outside to see if I could find a good conversation. Ending hanging out around the outdoor station until the 3pm tour started which was short but very cool. The staff is very friendly and if you go when it's slow they are more than welcome to strike up good beer conversations with ya. Prices are very reasonable, I think my tab was around $14 for four pours. My only gripe would be the lack of bathrooms and air conditioned seating areas. The all outdoor thing is cool but i would recommend going in any season other than the summer if you can.

Excellent place. Great setting. Love sitting under the oak trees enjoying a pour of a hard to find Jester King brew
