Cool place on the north side of town. Huge dining room with L-shaped bar at back that seats about 15, plenty of tables inside and good sized outdoor patio. 28 beers on tap, the two I had were good. Friendly service; half-pints. I did not try the food.

these guys actually have two locations in greater san antonio now, both are breweries, and i was fortunate enough to be able to check them both out. the one addressed here is a neat spot, kind of sportsbar-esque on the inside, dim with televisions all over, unremarkable, but with a killer patio that has plenty of seating and great service. we enjoyed several pints and a a few snacks here. the southern location is really cool, a more mellow, warehouse sort of vibe to the brewery, with a few arcade games, picnic tables, and a very open feel. both have their charms, and both had great selections of beers, including a lot of hoppy stuff, all the classics, some barrel aged beers, and a surprisingly good amount of the ghost pixel beers at each location, which is their side project or experimental arm. they also have coolers with a lot of additional beers to go, including some neat bombers of stuff not on tap. i pretty much liked all the beers we had at both spots, they are making some great stuff, definitely something for everyone whichever location you end up at. i think i like the vibe of the southern one better, but the beers at both are worth checking out! i couldnt imagine a trip to san antonio without hitting these guys up!

Had lunch with Da Boss today at the brewpub in North San Antonio.

Vibe was OK, strip center location on top of a hill. Plenty of outdoor seating where we hung out on a beautiful April day with temps in the mid to upper 70's. Indoor seating was ample. Overall you might get 150 folks in the indoor/outdoor seating.

Quality of the beer was solid as the "imperial" red and stout (both weighing in in the low 7.0 abv range) were tasty and worthy of another shot.

Service from Jose was solid, nice enough guy who could easily cover the entire indoor/outdoor areas on a less than busy 2:00 Wednesday last lunch crowd.

Selection was solid with about 15 or so house brews. Not sure if they had guest handles.

Food was solid as i had a brisket Philly Cheesesteak. Da Boss liked her chicken sandwich.

Overall i am glad we stopped. San Antonio does not have much to offer brewpub wise considering it is the 7th largest city in the US so make it a point to stop here if you are visiting.

Great food! Brews are all great, and they always have an awesome selection. Waitresses are super hot and friendly. Atmosphere is nice, but the porch is the best place to be, whether it's hot or cold out.

On top of a hill with some restaurants just off the loop, there is a hint of a picturesque view on the back end. Freetail's interior has a wide open floor, a shockingly insane number of HDTVs, and even a projector screen. The sound is cranked to 11 on just about every sporting event you can think of. You'd think this was a sports bar first and foremost, except it's a brewpub, and, you can hear the games better than you would a sports bar--is it a plus or a minus? I'll let you decide.

The tap list has a good, large selection of their own brews, plus a few other guest taps, which are mostly other locals. A good number of sours are featured, which is what I went for and I was not disappointed. There were also some risky IPA experiments, and some standard darker beers.

They have a decent food selection, including some features for the cool wood fired oven, such as pizza and other yummies flying out in quick succession. If you're not familiar with the area, and the loop around San Antonio, it's a little confusing to get to, even for a good GPS. Otherwise, good location, interesting brews, if not a little overboard on the sports TV offerings.
