Businesses across the world and Austin have been rethinking their business models and finding ways to make it work the best way they can amidst COVID-19. Urban Roots Executive Director Max Elliot met with Jester King Brewery’s Volunteer Corps Coordinator Debbie Cerda to talk about how COVID-19 is affecting their brewery and business.
For those of you who aren’t familiar, Jester King is not just a brewery, but also a kitchen, farm, and event hall. “Jester King is an authentic farmhouse brewery committed to mixed culture and spontaneous fermentation. Our beer incorporate our natural surroundings and local agriculture, to make beer uniquely tied to a time, place, and people. Our tasting room provides a beautiful, relaxed setting to enjoy the Texas Hill Country with friends and family,” (jesterkingbrewery.com).
