Had a great time! A bit apprehensive going in, and missed the turnoff the first time past, but the staff helps you get things figured out fast. Excellent pizza available on site - I recommend this as well.

Very laid back, kids seem to have as great a time as the adults, dog friendly too. Beer selection is great! Even if the funky farmhouse ales aren’t your thing, there are guests beers that are also excellent.

If you get the chance, go, even better if you can go when the weather is cool - all outside. Very hot in June when I was there.

This is most likely my favorite place on the planet. The whole staff is knowledgeable, polite, and fun. Sean gave a great tour with tons of information and answered every question.

Great rotating bottles from other smaller breweries you can not find anywhere else in town. Jeff is personable and always a joy to talk to when around. Plus who can forget about the amazing pizza from Stanley's? Pizza+Beer+Hill Country=a great way to spend the afternoon.

Awesome atmosphere, very spacious and shaded outside seating area with a covered pavilion to grab a bite at. Unique and interesting great beers that vary week to week, they specialize in a lot of Farmhouse Ales -- but plenty of variety. Will definitely visit again.

I really wanted to like Jester King. After all the hype, and how it was supposedly synonymous with Austin craft beer...
The one word that sums up my experience is PRETENTIOUS. And 90% of their beers were saisons?? We had a much better time next door at the pizza place, and the guest taps there honestly contained better beer. Nice to go once, but we won't be back.
