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.

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.

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 7/11/07. My flight was crazy late, and I arrived to the brew pub about 5 minutes before they closed. The bartender Ron was very accommodating, and let my take time to sample the Barley Wine, Pale Ale and the IPA despite the fact I was the only paying customer still in the place. They had 6 or 7 beers on, and one firkin cask that had just blown. The brewpub has a nice vibe, cool architecture and hidden / tucked away feeling to it. Folks were very cool, and the beers were above average. I did not have a chance to try the food, but certainly will next time I am in San Antonio. Thank you for the hospitality Ron and Dustin!

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.

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.

A pleasant 20 minute walk from my downtown hotel, you pass the lively Southtown neighborhood and King William Historic District. I was there on a Friday night and it was bustling. With the weather unseasonably nice for a January evening, folks were out in force, and a band was playing on the outdoor patio that overlooks the San Antonio River. If you wanted to be outside you got your beer in a clear plastic cup, so for raters it is best to be inside while rating. However, the only inside seating not reserved for diners is at the bar, which is limited. The beer is well above average, although their signature cask Pale Ale was out. I had two seasonal Holiday beers and both were excellent. Definitely worth a visit.

Went w/ friend and met up w/ Jason. We brought some beers and I was driving, so didnít delve to deeply into theirs. I recalled as I pulled in parking lot that I had been there about eleven years ago just after they opened. Fair but limited selection. The Baltic porter is quite good.

Now, my server was a great guy, Lawrence, and i pestered him the whole time i was there. damn fine food, even the hotdags without the dag. beer is actually pretty good too! the King William brew was quite intoxicating and merry drinking! this place gets a slight knock on it from most, why? no clue why, i fucking loved it!! a nice cozy place with good brew and good food.

UPDATE 4/8/08 The selection has improved dramatically, with 5-7 beers on tap again. I had a bourbon barrel IPA last time I was in-great experiment in brewing. Time to put Blue Star back on the list.. Iíve been here twice over the past 3 months. The beer selection has gone from 4 to 3 beers-none of which were the barley wine. The food is generally good. Last time I was in S.A. I stayed on the northwest side so I could go to the Flying Saucer-with 80 plus beers on tap. Blue Star is going in the wrong direction-from the old days when 6-8 beers were on tap and cask ale was usually available. Sorry.
