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.

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.

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.

Awesome atmosphere located in the arts district of San Antonio. Service was excellent with staff who seemed to know their stuff and were happy & friendly. A knock on selection as they only had 4 of their beers at the time, but all were solid. Food was delicious, I had the German plate. Good value.

Ambiance was unique with the bike shop upstairs. Located in an artsy part of San Antonio and a little tricky to find. They made their own soda which along with the bikes appealed to my son. The pork green chili rocked.
Wheathead - American wheat, basic, clean wheat beer. Good.
Golden - light lager - nice malt profile with light hop finish. Slight off taste in the nose at fist sip. Wet cardboard?
Pale Ale - Am. Pale ale - hop bitterness with light malt flavor. Hops pick up in the nose and give way to alcohol. Very refreshing well balanced pale ale.
Stout - foriegn stout? Full body creamy mouth feel. Sweet initial impression followed by coffee and chocolate. Bitter finish with a slight alcohol nose.
Jingle ale - spiced IPA - spices dominate aroma. No noticeable hop character in the flavor. Bitterness seems as if it comes from the large infusion of clove. This would be excellent with a warming alcohol effect and a stronger malt profile to balance the clove bitterness.
Texas Lambic - fruit lambic - very sour lambic. Big brett character dominates. Fruit is apparent but hard to identify. Excellent lambic overall. Nice to see a brewpub attempt this style and do it well.

At convention in San Antonio. Seemed like Blue Star was the only game in town for anything resembling craft beer. Bar and bike store in artsy district. Staff was very happy to talk beer and seemed to enjoy their job. Tried 4 beers, all were solid. Good atmosphere for relaxing and putting a few away.

A little difficult to locate, especially if you are searching in the dark. Itís a bit off the main road, tucked behind the arts complex. Inside has a nice rustic feel. Jazz was playing over the speakers which set a great mood. Brew tanks are visible in the back and along the balcony. Had a smaller list of beers to choose from than in other brewpubs, but the quality was above average. Great food choices, I had the Chicken Friend Chicken which the waiter recommended to me. Good choice. Not sure if they had any other beer selections beyond their own.

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.
