Visited here in late July í15 while in the area for business. Great brewpub in an artsy part of San Antonio close to downtown. kind of rustic, has an old farmhouse feel to it. Has about 10 of their own on tap, offered in various sizes. Nice wide variety to choose from. Solid menu, reasonable prices, I had the steak and it was only about $16. Friendly, hard working staff. A must stop if in San Antonio.

About 10 beers on tap, including one cask. Good sized space with bar, table and outdoor seating. Beers of b=variable quality and style. Free parking. Very beer-centric venue wth loads of brewing equipment in clear view, yet more upscale feel than implied by this description.

This is a neat brewery in a little art district. The dťcor is simple and pays tribute to cycling. The beer is very good: true to style, technically sound, and sort of middle of the road in style. The staff was attentive. I liked this spot.

Food is above average for a brewpub. Beer range is pretty tasty, with occasional seasonal or special stuff. Staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Good addition to the area. Re-rate after a long time away. Warning, the bridge over the river was closed, so I parked in a residential area a couple of blocks away. Still noce to come here and see the river turn back into a river, its job entertaining tourists done. They are now doing sour beers, very tasty ones at that. Service was exceptional on this visit - table staff knew the beers backwards and forwards, were generous with free samples, and had good recommendations. Well worth a visit.

I found this brewpub to be only decent. The prices were pretty solid, and the beers werenít bad, but they just all felt a little lacking. Overall, I still enjoyed the visit.

This is a nice gem in downtown, mostly constructed of recycled industrial building materials. The house beers are good and there were some one-offs. Our service was spot on, and the food is very good. This is a must stop in San Antonio.

Visited October 2011.

Walked along the river to get here on a muggy Texas night. Very scenic walk along the water though, even if the weather was miserable. Blue Star was pretty close and I had heard good things about the food so beer and dinner seemed like a good idea. The food was pretty good and the beer was alright. My favorite of the bunch was the pils with my least favorite being the wheat. I really wish people would stop making garbage-style hefes. Just stop it. There was some loud music playing which could make it difficult to have a conversation but outside on the deck was nice enough, despite the 150% humidity and 90 degrees. Itís been a while since Iíve been here but I could see coming back after a walking tour of the scenic part of town for some food. Otherwise, Iíll stop somewhere else for a better beer. Oh, and the service was a bit slow.

Nice seating both inside and out. Food and service were outstanding. The beer was much better than I remember it. Being near the Blue Star Art Mueseum is also a plus.

Small bar in Southtown. Great place to gra a burger and a beer, especially after a long bike ride. Service can be iffy.

Not a bad place to grab a pint and some food if you are near downtown San Antonio. Located on the Riverwalk, about a mile and half from the Alamo. The food is standard pub fare, with the burgers being pretty good. The beer ranges from not very good to slightly above average. During a recent trip they had a sour on tap that was pretty good, and they also have a nice stout. Not as good as the beers at Freetail, but there will likely be something on tap worth drinking.
