I was aware of this place for a while before I had a chance to check it out. It was a week night and there were only about 10 customers inside when I was there, along with several other customers who came and went after filling growlers to go. It is a very basic interior; kind of college dive meets industrial park simplicity. There are only a few tables and chairs, giving the impression that it really is primarily a place to fill your growler to drink elsewhere. The restroom was clean and neat. The bartender was knowledgeable about beer and helpful with making choices. They had 20+ taps with a good selection of craft beers, including some unusual regional, barrel aged and sour varieties. There was also a small refrigerator with some bottles of unusual beers, mostly from Texas. Prices were reasonable and varied by beer. Overall, this is a good place to go for a growler or a quick drink in the North part of town.

The place to go in San Antonio for beer, particularly if you like darker beers (at least for their current selections). All the selections are true craft brews with many local to TX. Patrons were friendly as was the server. Readily provided tastes to help with your decision making. Server also readily answered questions on the different choices. Will definitely return. Only downside is the total lack of food, not even chips or pretzels. That is the only thing I would change. The place is not fancy and is not a sports bar. You go here to sample and drink good craft beer. Check it out.
