4/5  rDev +4.4%

Made the trek over here during a recent stay in San Antonio. The place is kind of tucked back in the Blue Star complex, just know that google maps doesn't lie.

Atmosphere is nice. It's got a solid amount of patio seating in front and to the side. Inside there are quite a few tables to the right and a large bar right down the center. The brewing equipment is both behind the bar and farther back in the right-hand corner. A few TV's dot the place as well.

Quality is good. My beers came in either a pint glass or goblet so I'd like to see a bit more variety but the glassware wasn't inappropriate and the beer was served at a good temperature with proper head.

Service was really good. I never had to wait long for a beer and ended up chatting with a few of the bartenders about local beer selections. They also pointed me toward Pedicab which unbeknownst to me was right around the corner.

Selection is OK. They had a pale lager, amber lager, stout, barleywine, and pale along with a dry-hopped stout on cask.

Food is solid. I had chicken-fried chicken with white gravy and various vegetables and was pleasantly surprised.

Value is good. The beer is reasonably priced as is the food.

Overall I was a fan of this place and could see myself coming back - I just wish they had a more extensive selection or some local guest taps.

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.
