Was really looking forward to checking out Jester King's new taproom having heard such amazing things about it. When you first drive up it is really impressive. Huge barn/brewery on the left and a large pavilion off to the left, connected to the pizza shop. Walking up to the brewery it really strikes you how beautiful the setting really is. Lots of stone, trees and picnic tables scattered amongst them. All of this lends itself to making an incredible atmosphere to drink beers in. We grabbed a table in the shade and just enjoyed the natural environment. Some of the other people should really learn to control their kids as they were really hurting others enjoyment but we tried not to let that bother us to much. Quality was quite high. As I said earlier the space is amazing while the beers are served in nice wine glasses. Service was solid all around, the initial wait was a bit much since they didn't really have a defined line and people just kept walking past us to make their own. Selection was great, both in house and to go. I love that they post the menu's on their website so I could plan out a few of the beers I was looking to try. I didn't try the food as I was still full from my Franklin BBQ lunch, humble brag, so I didn't try the pizza but from what I saw it looked excellent. Prices were more than reasonable, both the drafts and bottles to go. Overall an absolutely amazing place to have a beer, especially theirs. I would love to have this place around me. I will definitely return the next time I am in Austin.

probably the BEST brewery i've been to to date. reminded my a lot of the HF atmosphere w/ the country side scenic views but the outdoor gathering spot for visitors is absolutely insane! plus killer food to boot. pours are extremely generous and plentiful. no limits here. will go back again.

The spot is in the middle of nowhere, gorgeous Texas countryside. Cool buildings and layout, amazing beers for onsite consumption as well as take away (they can vary on options very widely). Only downside is you can't bring in outside food and you are limited to the one pizza place that's not owned by them but right next to everything. Pizza is awesome, just if you don't want that you are out of luck.

We loved it overall, but be warned. There is no air conditioning. If you are not a fan of frying an egg on pavement, come in fall!

We had our class reunion here and had no idea what to expect. Service is slow but texas friendly, with plenty of hipsters to lighten the mood. Great views all over and very much worth the short drive from lake Travis or other austin areas.
