Noble Cause is our monthly initiative to help support local charities and non-profits. For September, we're accepting donations to the Austin Dish Lending Library. . . What's the The Austin Dish Lending Library? It's an organization focused on reducing reliance on single use disposables. It lends bowls, silverware, serving utensils, and more for people to host events, parties, or other functions that typically involve significant amounts of single-use disposable waste. . . To help support this innovative, resourceful organization, we'll be accepting dish, glassware and utensil donations for the rest of the month at Jester King. For each donation you bring in, we'll give you a free beer at any of our bars! . . Please see the link in our bio more information about the Austin Dish Lending Library. . . #jesterking #jesterkingbrewery #noblecause #austindishlendinglibrary

Jester King Eliminating Cardboard, "Single-Use" Bottle Carriers . . In an effort to be more environmentally friendly and cut down on paper waste, we're discontinuing cardboard, "single-use" six-pack carriers at our Bottles to Go tent. Throughout the course of a year, we give away approximately 10,000 cardboard carriers, which creates significant paper waste. We were inspired by the City of Austin's Single-Use Carryout Bag Ordinance to make this change. . . We ask that guests please bring their own reusable carrier or purchase a branded, reusable six-pack carrier from Jester King (pictured above), which we sell at cost for $4. We recognize that this will cause inconvenience for some of our guests, but feel it's the appropriate thing to do. Thanks in advance for any support we receive on this. . . #jesterking #jesterkingbrewery #bottlecarriers #singleuse #reusablebags
JESTER KING SEEKS MARKET GARDENER . . We are seeking to make a very important hire for Jester King -- a Market Gardener. . . When we started farming a few years back, we focused on perennial systems (fruit trees, hops, and grapes) that will hopefully produce for multiple decades. While our perennial systems remain hugely important to what we seek to do, our focus has expanded to include annual crops and the establishment of a market garden. Simply put, a market garden is a small plot of land (in our case less than an acre) that's used to grow a polyculture of crops for local farmers' markets, community-supported agriculture (CSA) subscriptions, or local restaurants. In our case, our market garden will grow food for our restaurant Jester King Kitchen, our brewery to make beer, and our guests to take home. . . We recently began preparing land for our market garden, and seek to have it ready in time for planting early next year. We are seeking a knowledgeable, experienced, hard-working individual to be directly responsible for our market garden program. Our market garden will be equipped with a greenhouse and BCS walk-behind tractor. She or he will join our small farming team consisting of Farmer Sean "Peppy" Meyers and Jester King Co-Founder Michael Steffing. . . As Peppy writes, "This beautiful opportunity is perfect for a person to experience the joy and adventure of building a market garden from the ground up. We are tremendously excited to pursue a closed-loop food production system, with the lowest carbon footprint possible, and educate on importance of culinary terroir." . . For all interested parties, please e-mail a resume and cover letter to: firstname.lastname@example.org. The job description is contained in the link in our bio. Thank you for your interest and please share this post with anyone who you think might be interested! . . #jesterking #jesterkingbrewery #jesterkingkitchen #jesterkingfarm #marketgarden #markergardener #timeplacepeople

We've been cellaring beers here at Jester King from around the time we opened in 2010. We built a proper "bottle library" in our barrel room around 2014, and often put away a few bottles from every batch for extended aging. . . All our beer is still "alive" when it's bottled. We don't filter or pasteurize, and every beer still has vibrant cultures of brewers yeast, and native yeast and bacteria from our land. The native cultures do very interesting things to beer as it matures. Flavors and aromas are transformed or taken in surprising directions. . . This year, JK Production Assistant and all-around beer nerd Joel Richards established a formal cellar program at Jester King. He selects a few "vintages" from our cellar to put on our menu (onsite and to go). This week, he selected 2013 and 2017 Mad Meg Farmhouse Provision Ale. . . Mad Meg is inspired by Franco-Belgian "Vieille Provision" or beer for keeping / preserving. It's high ABV (9%) makes it well suited for longterm maturation. The hops have largely faded away, and the wild yeast / fermentation character is at the forefront. The beer is also quite "mellow", in our opinion, despite its alcohol percentage. . . Available today Sunday (on-site and to go) at Jester King! Our tasting room and kitchen are open 12-9pm (kitchen closes at 8pm). Hope to see you! . . #jesterking #jesterkingbrewery #madmeg #provisionbeer #vieilleprovision #beerforkeeping #timeplacepeople Photo by Granger Coats.
