I made my first trip to Freetail today for their first anniversary party/La Muerta release. Entered right at opening for lunch with the wife. Inside is a darkish, wide-open interior with high ceilings and lots of tables; plenty of room and not too loud, though it's nothing fancy inside. Behind the bar, brewing equipment is visible as is a very large chalkboard that plainly listed the 20+ beers on tap. I appreciate the visibility of the tap list, which bumps the Atmosphere score a bit.

I tried a flight of five beers, having never had anything on tap before. I think the flight ran about $6.50, but it was nice to try multiple offerings from a vast taplist and still be able to drive when I left. Pint prices looked to range from $4-6.00. I tried two saisons, the anniversary Belgian, a double rye wit, and a stout, from which a saison brewed with pumpkin and the anniversary black wit stood out.

Our waitress was fairly attentive, refilling water when needed, letting us know about a tour, and so on. When our food order took a little extra time because the panini press hadn't been turned on, she took care of us with a free order of chips and queso/salsa. I was impressed by this-- what a great move on Freetail's part!

Our food was a real highlight of the visit. My wife's turkey panini and my ham and mozzarella panini were outstanding, with loads of flavor from artichoke and peppers, and pesto mayo, respectively. Prices on the food were maybe slightly higher than I'd expect, but only by a dollar or so.

I only wish Freetail was closer to Austin, and I'll definitely stop for a meal and a couple pints whenever I'm back in San Antonio.

I was in town looking for a brewery/brewpub to check out and found this place. Good atmosphere and good beer. I was looking for a hoppy IPA so I tried their Velocihopter which was good. I didnt have a chance to try anything else, but will stop by again next time I am visiting the area.
