This is the only brewpub I hit on a recent trip thru San Antonio. It is not far from the touristy sites, maybe just a few minutes drive. Can be a little tricky to find, so be alert.
Went on a Wed afternoon. It's not a very large place. It is connected to their bike shop, which is at an upper level.
The bartender was pleasant. We ordered a sampler. They had a golden, pale ale, amber, barleywine and I believe 1 more. All drinkable. Nothing too out of the ordinary, but certainly tasty. I had a pint of the golden, which was crisp and smooth.
The food was decent enough. I had a turkey sandwich.
I bought a logo pint glass as well.
For out of towners, this place was much easier to find than Free Tail. If you want to go their, get better directions than MapQuest.

A very beer-centric brewpub. Nine beers on tap, including two exceptional sours, as well as a cask version of their pale ale. The venue has a good size bar but too few stools .. so plenty of room to spread out or stand.
Food was modestly better than average, with the brisket being the best thing we tried.
Service was better than average, and much more knowledgeable than average.
Brewing operations in full view, along with some hanging bicycles. Adequate free parking.
