PLANNING YOUR VISIT
Preparing For Your Visit
Please read the informational e-mail that you receive upon booking. It includes parking and check-in details.
Each member of your party must have their own facemask, as they will be required at all locations aside from your table. We have disposable facemask available at check-in if you forget yours.
Outside water is welcome (but please no outside food or other drinks).
We recommend bringing sunscreen, as our seating is all outdoors. Some other commonly needed items are rain gear, proper footwear for all terrains, bottle opener/corkscrew, portable water bowls for pets, insect repellent, tote bags for carrying bottles to go, hand sanitizer, and battery operated phone chargers.
During Your Visit to Jester King
Once you arrive at Jester King, you will be able to check in with the host. We ask that your party is complete and that everyone is wearing masks.
When you check in for your reservation, the host will give you an overview of where you can go and how to get to your picnic area.
You may choose any open table in your reserved area, but we ask that you please not move to another table during your visit and not move any tables. This will be your reserved table the entirety of your visit.
On your table you will find a card with a website to enter or QR code to scan that will bring up our menu.
Once your food and drinks are ready, you will receive a text and you can visit our pick up area in the Pole Barn.
We currently do not use glassware or cutlery. All draft beer is served in biodegradable cups unless you opt in to purchase a branded glassware.
Hand sanitizer will be available from our friends at Revolution Spirits.
You can re-order and pay through the same contactless process. Payment is completed for each order. You will need a credit or debit card, as we will not be accepting cash at this time.
When you are all done, we ask that you please pick up after yourself as there will be plenty of trash bins around.
If you want to grab Jester King beer, food, merchandise, or other beverages to go, please stop by our Bottles to Go area at the Pasture Bar!
Well-behaved pets on leash and under control by their owners are allowed. Off-leash pets are not permitted to ensure the safety of all pets as well as our guests, wildlife, livestock, and farm cats. Please clean up after your pet.
- How do I change my reservation or party size?
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the reservation name, and details you wish to change. We can take it from there and send you a new confirmation!
We cannot make our reservation anymore. Should we let you know?
Yes please! Cancelling your reservation opens up your slot for someone else to enjoy the experience. You can cancel your reservation from the email that you received from Tock at booking. You can also call/text us at 512-661-8736 or email email@example.com.
Reservations are full. Do you have a waitlist?
Limited walk-in(s) will be available, depending on our reservations for that period being fully booked or not. Please feel free to call us at 512-661-8736 to check on openings.
What is your inclement weather plan?
Reservations will be honored rain or shine, however, in the event of dangerous weather, please refer to our social media for any news of the brewery closing. At this time, we do not have the ability to seat groups indoors. If you need to cancel a reservation due to inclement weather, we would happily accommodate rescheduling your reservation for another date or building a food and beverage order for you to take home with you.
How long am I allowed to stay once I've arrived?
Currently, we close every Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday at 8pm and every Saturday and Sunday at 3pm and 8pm. Depending on which picnic session you've booked, you have until the end time for your session. For example, if you've booked for 12:30pm on a Saturday, your session ends at 3pm.
Is it possible to reserve adjacent tables to another party?
We can do our best to accommodate this request but at this time we cannot guarantee that you and the other party will be able to sit next to each other. All reservations are made on a first come first serve basis, so if your section is fully booked, we'll need to seat the tables separately. Tables' locations cannot be physically moved. Parties are not allowed to trade tables for sanitary reasons. The best way to ensure your party can sit near each other is by showing up on time or early with all members of the parties present.
Do you offer gluten-free pizza or beer?
Unfortunately, due to the amount of flour in the pizza oven, we are unable to make truly gluten-free pizza. Although we cannot make gluten-free pizza, we have other dishes on our menu that are gluten-free. We always offer a selection of gluten-free wines and ciders.
Where do we check in?
All guests will now enter through our pathway behind the Pasture Bar and check in at the host stand. There will be a marked tent with a sign.
Do I need to wear a face mask during my experience at Jester King Brewery?
Masks are required at all times during your experience with the exception of when seated at your table with your party.
Can I bring my child and/or pet?
Jester King prides itself on being a family-friendly experience. We ask that all children remain under adult supervision and agree to all rules on the property. All pets must remain on a leash for the entirety of your visit.
We have a party of more than ten people. Is it possible that we can reserve adjacent tables to sit together?
Our reservation system isn't the traditional 'reserve a table, get preassigned a table'. All tables for each section, with the exception of the Pole Barn, are first come first serve. Keep in mind there are plenty of wide open spaces with several tables, so even though we can't guarantee both parties can find adjacent tables, Chances are that two tables adjacent to each other won't be difficult to find.
Can I give my reservation away or sell it?
Yes. The reservation is completely transferable. Please note, however, that selling reservations for greater than face value may be illegal. Anyone who purchases a reservation from another patron should take care to ensure that they have a received a formal transfer of the reservation through the restaurant’s official website. Any reservations purchased on the secondary market are at the purchaser’s risk. We cannot accept responsibility for forgeries or misrepresentations.
How do I transfer my reservation?
To transfer a reservation, log in to your account and then select, “Reservations”. Each reservation has a transfer button next to it.
Can I bring food or drink to Jester King?
No outside food or drinks are allowed at Jester King with the exception of water bottles.
Do you offer tours?
Due to the current health crisis, we are not offering tours at this time. Thank you for your understanding. We hope to offer virtual tours in the future.
