The brewery is on a beautiful big, wide open piece of land. they have a pizza oven restaurant in the back which... More

Really nice outdoor space. They have a large pavilion, good pizza. They have jester king beer and in a separate pavilion other draft beer, wine. I actually didn't try the jester king but had a good time at the place

While visiting family in the Austin area we stopped by the Jester King Brewery. It's a great place to hang out and try local brews. They have a varied selection mixed with local yeast. There is also an outdoor pizza place with amazing thin crust and fresh toppings! So good with beer! There is plenty of outdoor seating. There is... More

This place is out in the boonies. I would not have known about it except for a BD party there, with people who had been there before. Picnic tables under the trees. We were sweating profusely in September. Go there when the weather is cool. I tried 3 of the locally brewed beers. One was like sour apples and I... More

Fun atmosphere, good food, great beer. Lots of cider choices. Lots of families.. when we went, lots of mud, so careful if it rains around your trip time.

Jester King is about 25 minutes west of downtown Austin in a cluster of breweries and distilleries. It makes a great half day trip to drive that way and visit several stops. Jester King I believe is the largest brewery in that area with a huge outdoor space and pizza restaurant. The large outdoor area is group and dog friendly.... More

Jester King is a niche specialty brewer using local ingredients and aging and blending their beer. It is quite unique. The setting is hill country awesome. Beautiful oak woodland with some fantastic old repurosed building. There is a large pizza restaurant next door. Every weekend is an event. Highly recommended, but check the hours before you go.

Great place to visit with a group. Lots of beers you can purchase in sizes as small as 4 ounces for tasting to full bottle. Huge outdoor areas. We took to the brewery tour and that was very informative about how they make their beer locally and use local ingredients. As a local will definitely be back.

We visited here in the heat of summer and the heat of the day. Since I am definitely not into the heat, I could not stay more than one beer's worth. But I wish I could. It is a bit of a drive into the country but that made the setting even more rustic. It is surprising when you get... More

Huge beer selection with lots of outdoor seating and food places but disappointed at the taste of the home brews. Probably the best thing about the place was the pizza. Relatively cheap but very good quality and taste. Great spread and stuff to do for the kids but won't go back for the beer. A lot better places, in my... More
