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.

For the most part, I go here for the beer. The food can be hit or miss depending on what you order. Service is the same, hit or miss depending on how busy or the competence of the server. Overall good beer, average food and a nice atmosphere.

this is a great brewing complex. as you walk into the dinning/ bar area the first thing you see is two giant stainless serving
tanks. the wait staff is knowledgeable about the beer they serve. all their beer is great! be sure to stop by the bike shop.

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.

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.

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.

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.
