T-Shirt Tuesday #11: Jester King Black Metal

It has already been one of those weeks and its only Tuesday so I felt it was fitting to feature a tee from one of my favorite Austin area craft breweries – Jester King.  This is not so much an entry about the tee (which is just fine), but about the brewery (and brews).  I discovered Jester King a few years ago with the release of their humorously named Commercial Suicide.  While I didn’t love that particular brew, what I did like was their approach to brewing.  Their first few beers (aside from Commercial Suicide) were serviceable, but it wasn’t until their shift to brewing farmhouse style beers that I really became a fan.

Add to that, leading the charge against the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission’s ridiculous and antiquated laws, and I am a lifetime fan of Jester King.  Oh, and I didn’t even mention that they are the first (and for the time only) certified organic brewery in the state of Texas!  Well guess I just did!  So much awesomeness and tasty brews – if you can get your hands on some Jester King, definitely give it a try!

So I raise my glass and give this week’s sartorial shout out to Jester King Craft Brewery!  Cue the metal, rock on & wear tees!
