An authentic farmhouse brewery

PLEASE NOTE! We have a restaurant now!

(formerly Stanley's)

Established in 2010, Jester King is an authentic brewer of farmhouse ales connected to a time, place and people. Our philosophy is to work in partnership with nature to create food and drink that would not otherwise exist.

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.

Happy Veterans Day and thank you to those who served! . . . #jesterking #naturetrail #veteransday #timeplacepeople

We have a new pairing this weekend for Figlet -- fig leaf creme brûlée with chocolate & cranberry smoked granola · The fig leaves were gathered from the property and vanilla beans were previously used for brewing. Inspired by s’mores, this creme brûlée is meant to be paired with Figlet and is best enjoyed near a bonfire. · We’re open 12-10pm today (kitchen closes at 9pm). Brewery tours are 1, 3, and 5pm. Farm tours today are 2 and 4pm. · #jesterking #jesterkingbrewery #farmhouse #texashillcountry #austin #drippingsprings #texas #austineats #austinfoodie #austinfoodstagram #buzzfeedfood #365thingsaustin #eatdrinkaustin #eateraustin #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

Good article on the parallels between wild beer and natural wine from Good Beer Hunting written by Bryan Roth and illustrated by Charlotte Hudson! The piece includes some quotes from us, as well as our friends at Tired Hands Brewing Company, Mad Fritz Brewing Company, De Garde Brewing and Two Roads Brewing Company. . .

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

COLONEL TOBY RELEASE TODAY . . We're happy to release our latest batch of COLONEL TOBY today! Colonel Toby is our hoppy little farmhouse ale brewed in collaboration with The Kernel Brewery in London, England. We love simple, little, crisp, bitter, drinkable beers, and Colonel Toby fits this bill. Over the last few years, it has emerged as a favorite amongst our staff here at Jester King and garners excitement around the brewery when the new batch is released. . . Our recent batch is 3.2% alcohol by volume and was packaged in early October. It will be available by the glass and in bottles to go (750ml/$9) at our tasting room and restaurant. We're also have a dish from our kitchen to pair with Colonel Toby this year. Chef Damien Brockway and his team have made beef tartare with Yorkshire Pudding! . . We hope you enjoy Colonel Toby -- our hoppy little farmhouse ale! Cheers! . . . @thekernelbrewery #jesterking #jesterkingbrewery #farmhouse #texashillcountry #austin #drippingsprings #texas #independent #independentlocalbusiness #mixedculture #nativeyeast #beer #wildbeer #hoppyfarmhouseales #hoppylittlefarmhouseale #coloneltoby #wildale #craftbeer #wellwater #localmalt #localgrain #timeplacepeople
