As you walk in there is a bar that goes along the left. The brewing equipment can be seen towards the back. There is a large wood deck that wraps around the bar. It is located in a neat little neighborhood. A great place to relax with a few pints. I really like the feel of the place.

The service was good and enthusiastic. The server was pleased to speak at length about some of their beers. Our food came out before we knew it, and no problems getting more beer samples. The food was above average, but nothing special. Anyway, on to the beer...

They had at least 8 beers on tap and a cask. That is a pretty good selection. I had the stout (on cask), the pale ale, IPA, King William Barleywine, and the kicker...a barrel aged sour:) There were several other beers that I did not try. Everything was solid, and some were very good.

Overall, an excellent place to grab some beers and a meal. I was very pleased to see a large selection to chose from, and not just a by the numbers brewpub. Check it out if you are in San Antonio.

Great place to meet and get primed before going to watch THE WORLD CHAMPIONS OF THE NBA.. THE SAN ANTONIO SPURS.! The atmosphere is casual and the crowd is laid back. This place is in the heart of the art district and historic downtown SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS.

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.
