Jester King is an authentic farmhouse brewery committed to mixed culture and spontaneous fermentation. Our beers incorporate well water, local grains, hops aged in our barn, fruits and vegetables, foraged plants, and native yeast and bacteria so as to make beer uniquely tied to a time, place, and people. Our inspiration comes from the classic farmhouse breweries of Europe that embrace principles of subtlety, restraint, patience, full attenuation and interesting fermentation character.
Jester King currently preserves 58 acres of land in the Texas Hill Country. As Austin grows and green space becomes less common, we will continue to preserve our small piece of the Hill Country. In 2016, we began farming and currently grow a fruits and vegetables. This year, we planted a three acre vineyard. We also raise goats and will add to the diversity of our livestock over time.
