Jester King Brewery in the Hill Country of Texas

This time last year we were staying at an RV Resort near Lake Travis west of Austin. The first rumblings were beginning to be heard about some kind of new virus that was killing people in China, and it had already shown up in the Seattle area in the US. We were still enjoying our winter in Texas, appreciating the tag “Winter Texans” instead of “snow birds”.

Brew tasting at Jester King Brewery

One activity that we enjoyed while in Texas last winter was visiting wineries, breweries and distilleries. One brewery we liked was the Jester King Brewery. This is a brewery, restaurant, farm and event center. Even though it has an Austin address, the establishment is closer to Dripping Springs, in the Hill Country. We sampled some brews and bought a couple of take out growlers. This is a nice facility, worth a stop if you’re in the area. This is the Jester King website.

  1. Ah…people after my own heart ๐Ÿ™‚ . Weโ€™ve been to whisky distilleries in Scotland and Ireland, wineries in France and a brewery in Bruges in Belgium. They are like mini history tours in this part of the world…always great fun to do. In fact that just reminds me – I have a pack of beer from a visit to a tiny brewery on a farm in the north of England we visited over a year ago. Iโ€™d forgotten all about that until your post! Thank you! Iโ€™m off to find it. ๐Ÿ™‚
