Fresh brews and low-key relaxation in the middle of a buzzing arts complex..
The sprawling old warehouse covered in corrugated tin must look much the same as it did in its former life, when it was used merely for storing beer. A large outdoor patio overlooks the parking lot, while a small second-floor balcony offers a better view of the nearby San Antonio River. As one of the anchors of the Blue Star Arts Complex, San Antonio's first full-scale brewpub attracts an eclectic crowd--businessmen, artists and college students.
Ales and lagers are the house specialty, and the golden ale and pilsner both demonstrate the brewmaster's exceptional skill at crafting smooth, yet full-bodied, beers. Harried office workers eager to make the most of happy hour will appreciate the King William ale for its rich, hearty taste and its high alcohol content. And there's always at least one limited-production brew on the menu for those who like to change beers with the season.
Good Food and Brew. In a large warehouse like setting the Blue Star serves excellent food - try the onion rings they are made with "real" beer batter and melt in your mouth. The pizza is also very good. The staff were friendly and helpful telling us about where to go in San Antonio. Great value for the money.
Forget the crowds.
Juicy, well grilled, fresh veggies, delicious fries.
And if you come during non-working hours
and enjoy a freshly brewed beer:
THIS IS THE PLACE. (Forget what the sensationalist masses say, and come where the
burger conoisseurs are.)
Outstanding!. Great place to get a great beer. Especially on the first Friday of the Month!!
