Swung by this awesome, burgeoning brewpub after a gorgeous Sunday in San Antonio with the fam.
Despite the "corporate plaza" feel to the surrounding area, Freetail keeps a rustic vibe with a huge windmill off its porch. Inside, high ceilings and a long bar surround a pretty good-sized seating area surrounded by flat-screens (sports on all channels) and a few arcade/dart games. Don't get it twisted, this is not a sports bar! On-tap is one of the finest assortments of Texas microbrews I've ever encountered. Not extensive, but very nicely selected, with beer from Real Ale, (512), Alamo Brewing, Rahr & Sons, and more. Did I mention their own Freetail brews on-tap? They had about 6, and all were fantastic. Still, I was heartbroken when I found out they had no more La Muerta, Rye Wit, or Bat Rastard left :(
Service was excellent, even though the place wasn't all that crowded. Our waitress was very attentive and knowledgeable about the beers she was serving. We ordered a large pizza of the mushroom variety---good, but nothing exceptional. Nevertheless, the menu choices were beyond your typical pub fare and showed a good level of creativity. Very reasonable prices, and on Sunday they have $2 off their growler fills. I ran off with a jug of their Freetail Ale. I recommend it, their IPA, and their Exxxtra Pale Ale. Will be returning once La Muerta is brewed again....

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.
