This is a post that Sher wrote back in February, 2020 just before we cut short our time as Winter Texans and headed back to Indiana before COVID struck. We just found this and somehow it never got published. So…Here it is.
It was a special treat for us to visit Jester King Brewery while we were in Austin, TX because our last name is Jester. So, of course we had to buy some beer with our name in it!
It is located at a beautiful 165 acre ranch in the Texas Hill Country. It is so welcoming and a fun place for all ages. Since we are retired we were able to visit when it opened at 4pm, so they weren’t super busy. We had had a late lunch, so we weren’t hungry but their pizza looked delicious and by the looks of people ordering it I think it was a favorite. We were there on Maj’s birthday and we already had reservations in town with our family in Austin, or I would have suggested we have dinner there.
They had many choices of beer, but it was easy for us to choose one we wanted try, the Jester-King one! We, also, bought a bottle to bring home. How we could we turn down a beer with our name on it?
We had fun and it is on our recommended places to visit. The bartenders were exceptionally nice and so friendly and helpful in answering our questions. They have an outdoor covered area for seating with heaters, and a bonfire outside when we were there.
This is a favorite place and we’ll definitely be going back the next time we are in Austin. And, getting pizza!
