The very definition of a farmhouse brewery, Jester King are committed to the creation of mixed culture and spontaneous fermentation beers on 165 acres of land in the Texas Hill Country.
They even began farming in 2016 and now grow a variety of fruits and vegetables, have planted a three-acre vineyard and raise goats with plans to add more livestock over time.
Their beers incorporate well water, local grains, hops aged in their barn, local fruits and vegetables, foraged plants, and native yeast and bacteria. The result is beer that is uniquely tied to a time, place, and people, but inspired by the classic farmhouse breweries of Europe.
We've already brewed with Jester King twice, including our Spirit Animal series, which used their house culture, and juicy pale ale Catch My Eye.
