1. Jester King Brewery, 47pts
This Hill Country brewery is the only farmhouse brewery in the state that allows natural yeast to ferment their beers. This process gives their beers sour notes, low carbonation, and bold flavors. A visit to this brewery in the Springtime looks like a postcard, with a wide-open field of wild flowers to appeal to the eyes while the beer arouses your mouth.
