— Hill Country beer haven Jester King Brewery is now offering tours of its in-progress farming grounds. The public tours, which take place on Saturdays at 2 pm, will include insights as to what the brewery will grow, from vineyards, and an opportunity to play with goats. The brewery plans on creating a working farm, orchard, and vineyard on the property, which will also include a restaurant in the future.

— Now that South by Southwest is over, several Austin bars and food trucks are taking short breaks to recover from the nonstop festival. This includes Red River bar Cheer Up Charlie’s (closed now until Wednesday, March 21), barbecue trailer Kerlin BBQ (closed now until Friday, March 23), Whisler’s (closed tonight, reopening tomorrow, Tuesday, March 20), and East Side bar Shangri La (closed now until Wednesday, March 21).

— Barbecue trailer Micklethwait Craft Meats will be closed for about a week starting tomorrow, Tuesday, March 20 through Monday, March 26. It’ll still serve up food at the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match from Wednesday, March 21 through Sunday, March 25 though.
