Went down on a Saturday morning for the Ananke release. Got there about 11:15 and the Baylor fans were already there in full force for the game against Tech...at least as "full force" as Baylor can get. 1/2 brepub, 1/2 sports bar feel. Long bar and seating in the entire place for about 100 I would guess. Good selection of their own beers available. Prompt initial service that became a little spotty after we were first greeted. Beers were reasonably priced and served in pint glasses. Growlers available as well. Food was good bar food. I had a sandwich and my wife had the nachos, both tasty. The pizzas looked really good. Definitely a good find in way north San Antonio. I would recommend it to anybody in the area.

Before driving to Austin and leaving San Antonio, I took the wife to Freetail Brewing.

Driving there is no joke- miles and miles of northbound freeway to a point where you are still within city limits but it feels like a subdivision in the middle of nowhere. The space is large and standard, nothing terribly unique but comfortable and functional.

I spotted 19 taps all around, including 15 Freetail and 4 guest taps from Texas. Of the house beers, I tried, in a 5-oz flight of 4 brews, the Old Bat Rastard (winter warmer), Hopothosis (DIPA), Thanatos (7.2% stout) and FT2 Witicus (sort of an imperial wheat). All of them were OK but a little underwhelming aka average. I wouldn’t rush to fill a growler here… although I did like the La Muerta imperial stout I had on tap at Friendly Spot.

I had read about the Freetail pizza and was curious (and hungry!). But both the wife and I were left a little cold… the size is good and the crust is thin, but it lacked flavor all around, from dough to toppings. Not even hot sauce and cheese could save it from blandness. The cheesy bread appetizer was simple and yummy, though.

Service was pretty friendly and prices are not terrible ($18 for a massive pizza). It was a good stop for us and I’m glad I tried Freetail, but I don’t think I will revisit.

Attended for La Muerta release. Did a sampler and beers were good, but not as great as I had hoped. Not as congested as expected either, venue as attached to a mall with plenty of outdoor seating. Service was good and prices reasonable. Will probably go back on a slower day.
