Took a long bus ride up here during a recent trip to San Antonio.

Atmosphere is good. It's kind of strip-mall-ish from the outside but once inside it opens up nicely. There's outside seating at a large window opening up to the bar and plenty of inside seating in a fairly large space. The bar is at the back in an L-shape with the brewing equipment visible behind. La Muerta and Dirty Rat Bastard paraphernalia hang all over the place. A few TV's dot the space above the bar.

Quality is good. Now that I think about it all my beers came in large pint glasses but they were all at the proper temperature with proper amounts of head.

Service was very good. I never had to wait long to get refills and the gentleman behind the bar did his best (and a pretty nice job) of answering my random questions.

Selection was very good for a brewpub. A myriad of styles was available along with random treatments of the styles (cherries added to a stout, spirulina added to a wit, peppers added to a BSDA). I was told they normally had a guest tap but the tap was broken when I was in.

Food was good. I had the basic margherita pizza and it was better than expected. I can't speak to any other items but if they're as good as the pizza you'll enjoy it.

Value is good. I went on their pint night so the beer was exceptionally cheap but even the normal prices were reasonable.

Overall I was expecting big things before arriving, lowered my expectations at the door, and then saw them raised as I stepped inside. It's not in the most enchanting location but it more than makes up for it with what's inside. Well worth a stop if you're in the area.

Awesome brewpub. Great beer - although selection at times lately has been hit or miss (may be due to a second location opening and bottling more). The food is awesome, pizza and appetizers are awesome. Definitely worth a trip if you are in the area or just want a great pizza and beer.

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.
