Having not yet made it to blue star, this is the one shining star we have in San Antonio (not counting Ranger Creek, as they are a brewery and can not sell beer or food).

The atmosphere is pretty laid back, low lighting, with TV and projectors on all the walls. If you ask them to play some sporting event, as long as they have the channel, they will happily change it for you. There is an outdoor patio with a garage style glass door that can be raised when the weather is nice and allow access to the bar.

The service that I have receive has always been good. Yes occasionally they will mess up your order, but that rarely happens. The waitress seem to have a good knowledge of the beers they serve, which is impressive because they change beers so frequently.

The selection is mostly house beers, but that changes often. They have 3 staples that are always on tap. They brew special one-off, such as barrel aged wild ales, RIS, and other barrel aged experiments. There is also a guest tap selection that usually rotates between different Texas breweries. The one objection I have is that they tend to serve their beers a little cold.

The food is excellent. There pizzas and sandwiches are fantastic and I have yet to try their other offerings, because I usually get one of those two.

It is no more expensive than any other bar, or restaurant. In fact on wednesdays they have a Date night special that for $16 includes pizza and a pitcher (price depends on the beer chosen). Tuesdays are $2.50 house pints and Mondays are $10 pitchers, so you have cheap options depending on the day.

I would recommend Freetail to anyone traveling though San Antonio and needs a place to grab a bite and a cold drink.

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.
