Over the years, we've grown into a welcoming destination for people of all ages to enjoy food, drink, friends, family and community. We invite you to visit us and enjoy all that our brewery, restaurant, farm, event space and 165 acres of preserved land has to offer.

LE PETIT PRINCE MAGNUM RELEASE TODAY · We are excited to announce that we are releasing LE PETIT PRINCE IN MAGNUM BOTTLES today when our tasting room opens at 4pm. The magnum sized bottle is meant for sharing, and what a better time to share than on Thanksgiving! · Le Petit Prince is about as simple as a farmhouse beer can be - unfiltered well water from the Trinity aquifer, a small amount of Texas-grown barley and wheat, and a good amount of Saaz hops. We fermented with our mixed culture of indigenous yeast and bacteria in stainless steel for a few weeks, dry hop, and then bottle condition in the magnums. It’s dry, bitter, and really showcases the well water that’s used in all of our beers. · Le Petit Prince will be available as bottles-to-go only ($22/1.5 L). About 400 bottles are available. We hope you enjoy with friends and family! · #jesterking #jesterkingbrewery #farmhouse #texashillcountry #austin #drippingsprings #texas #independentlocalbusiness #mixedculture #wildale #wellwater #timeplacepeople

Brewing has given us opportunities we never imagined. One of them has been to see other parts of the world and how things are done there. In our travels, we've seen that election day in other countries is a holiday and that voting is mandatory. Therefore, we've been inspired to treat election day as though it's a holiday. . . Jester King is closed today and all our people have the day off so they can go vote. We encourage you to do the same if you haven't already! . . #election #vote #electionday #2018election #jesterking #timeplacepeople

Yesterday we got to pour our beer at Freetail Brewing Co.'s La Muerta Festival. We were pretty excited to do this, especially because Freetail has been a pioneer in Texas when it comes to wild fermentation. Back when we were discovering wild beer, Freetail's Ananke was pretty eye opening for us. . . Another reason is because we owe a sizable debt to Freetail and its founder Scott Metzger for doing a ton of work to help make it legal for breweries like Jester King to sell our beer at our brewery. Prior to 2013, all our beer had to be sold offsite, and thankfully that's not the case anymore. . . So much thanks and respect to Freetail for the years of help, inspiration and friendship! . . . #jesterking #freetail #lamuerta #sanantonio #wildfermentation #independence #texasbeer #beerlaw #reform @freetailbrewing @beermonkey #timeplacepeople
