Jester King Brewery Support for International Dark-Sky Association

This past February, our neighboring town of Dripping Springs was named the first international dark sky community in Texas. The mission is to “protect and preserve the character of the nighttime sky over central Texas”. We support this mission wholeheartedly, and are pleased to have recently donated to the International Dark-Sky Association (IDA). We plan on continuing to support the organization through donations and events at our brewery.

Central Texas is experiencing massive population growth. Austin recently topped the 2014 Forbes list of the fastest growing cities in the United States. There are many aspects of this growth we are happy about. Certainly, the culinary arts in our home town (of which we consider beer making to be part of) have prospered as a result of the increased patronage. We find this very exciting. But preserving the character and natural beauty of the environment in central Texas is a goal we feel passionate about. We will continue to be part of this effort by supporting organizations like the IDA, as well as other organizations aimed at protecting our local environment, so that the natural beauty that gives central Texas so much of its identity and sense of place is not lost.
