Good beer brewed on site, nice flight offer to try them all, food is only so-so, typical bar menu. Service a little slow. Like the outdoor seating and funky building. Good place to hang and talk with friends.

This is a great find in San Antonio and not far off the main drag. We took the bus from downtown/convention centre right to the brewery. It was easy and only one bus (#11). The beers are great (the IPA is awesome) or you can...More

Every Tuesday, 8-10 p.m. It is also a comfort food restaurant. Last week they had nine brews made there on tap. Order a sampler~try them all. The sours were especially nice and the porter is always delicious.

The Blue Star Brewing Company also offers a full restaurant menu, which is perfect for those who head straight to the pub after work and also need a bite to eat. The second floor balcony has a view of the San Antonio River and allows drinkers and diners at the brewery to get a breath of fresh air.
