me and a friend stopped by to pass the time one night when we were in san antonio. took us a while to find as it is not visible directly from the road.
atmosphere: was a bit crowded but no biggy, felt a lot of hustle and bustle when inside but the back patio was very nice.
quality: could have been much better. the stout tasted like an iced coffee, the barleywine was more of a hardlywine, and the pale ale was just so so. maybe it was because i went at the wrong time or maybe because i had too high of hopes but the beers were just average.
service: pretty good considering how busy it was at the time.
selection: only six beers to choose from!!!! seriously wtf. all i had ever heard was how this place is usually rotating in a cask and a few specials but neither of these was available when we went. definately planning another trip down to try some special beers.
food: was bland and basic. tasted alright but was definately not impressing.me and my friend had a burger.
everything was fairly inexpensive which made it bearable and definately worth a check out. i would love to check this place out again so i can have a better feel for reviewing it.
also as we were in the parking lot two stray cats came up and chilled on my friends car while he was filling it up with engine coolant. it was awesome to say the least.

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.
