Trendy brewpub on the riverwalk. Long bar seats about 20, with many tables inside and outside patio. A dozen beers on tap, the two I had were ok. Spotty service, and food was plain.

i loved this place, mellow and sort of timeless, they are one of the oldest operations in town, but their beer remains relevant, we had a great time in here on a rainy afternoon, although i couldnt help but wish it was a nice day out, they have an awesome patio and a little area over by the river too that would be idea for sunshine sipping. inside its very much the classic brewpub, smaller than it looks from the outside, with the tanks and everything right in the middle of the place, seems like when the patio is open it would close to double their capacity. we had a great bartender who walked us through the lineup and gave us some of the history. i liked the raspberry sour a lot, seriously tasted like mature lambic, but i also really dug the english ipa on cask, not enough of that around anymore, and it absolutely hit the spot for me. the classic doppelbock was also solid. mellow atmosphere in here, an easy place to pass the time, and the food looked good even though we didnt eat. not sure why the low ratings, our experience here was fantastic! i would recommend checking them out on a nice day to enjoy the outdoor seating!

Menu was an eclectic mix of pub and gastropub. $10 for salsa plus chips and queso is a bit much though. Good service, nice, developed part of town with great outdoor seating and average beer. Worth a try though.

Understated stop in a local artist community. Very nice menu, with a clever list of options (I liked the pig pie). Lots on tap to taste, but unfortunately there is nary a sampler to offer up. The beer I had was tasty, but would have liked the chance to test more.Worth a trip if you are in the area for sure.

Went for lunch and beers with friends.
The sour beers are definately their Flagship beer, very good for the style.
The other ales were good but not excellent.
Service was great, staff was friendly and knowledgeble.
Food was quite good but a little pricey for the small portions.
I would recomend anyone to give the place a try.

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.
