Head Brewer Jordan Keeper to Leave Jester King
Austin, TX – It is with great sadness that we must announce that our Head Brewer, Jordan Keeper, is leaving Jester King to pursue his dream of opening his own brewery. As difficult as it is to lose him, we support Jordan in his dreams and look forward to seeing them take shape.
Jordan has been Head Brewer at Jester King since 2011. He joined us when we were a fledgling outfit fumbling around in the dark learning how to make wort and ferment beer. Jordan’s presence immediately helped provide stability and clarity when we were just learning to find our way as a brewery. Over the years, Jordan helped us assemble and lead a team of talented brewers and develop the recipes and techniques we use to make our beer today. He has been an integral part of our barrel aging, blending, and fruit refermentation programs and played a key role in developing our award winning Atrial Rubicite.
Above all that, Jordan is a dear friend and a class act who will be dearly missed at our brewery. We wish him the absolute best in his future endeavors. Be on the lookout for exciting things from Jordan in the future!
