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.

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.

Located along the Riverwalk (but a pretty far stroll from the Alamo and downtown), this was a nice find. Family atmosphere, decent food in a restaurant that also happens to serve beer brewed on-site. Didnít have my first choice available on the day I sent, but the second choice was fine.

Decent spot in Southtown to grab a brew. The beer is average and the food about the same. Two nice "surprises" the night we stopped in: Golden Sour and Black IPA. I recommend showing up for happy hour, knocking a few back and then moving on to get some great Tex-Mex and checking out the tremendous variety of local art in the area.

Took the trolley (Blue Line) from the Alamo to the Blue Star stop -$1.25 each way but it is a walkable distance (about a mile or so). The Blue Star is tucked behind another large building so it is not easy to see off the street. There is a comfortable, inviting feel to the place and service was good (Thursday night, not busy). There were about 5-6 beers on draft - not a great selection. The food was decent and was reasonably priced. Overall, a solid place with decent beer, good food.

Nice feel to this place. One can walk here easily along the Riverwalk from the downtown hotels. And itís a nice walk. The food was tasty and reasonably priced. Waitstaff solid. The beers are OK, but you wonít want to spend all day at this place. Great feel to the neighborhood location.
