Last Day in San Antonio…time to try some local brew. I had seen this place on a super long exploratory walk (10+ miles) the first day I was there. Now had 4+ hours to kill before catching my plane, why not walk a bit to check this place out for some local fare, in more ways than one?
So, walked a couple miles (south) on the Riverwalk to the Blue Star Brewing Company.
Checked out the beer menu and wanted to do a sampler. You can pick any of their brews and get as many as you’d like in 4-oz. pours. Great idea! And they cost $1-$3 each. After reading and reading the descriptions I finally picked four — I’m not going to start with more than a pint’s worth of beer. And, some of the ABVs on these were high.
So I went with:
Texican: South Texas Lager, dry, crisp & mild. Flavors with leave you thirsty for more, 4.0% ABV. — This was my favorite!
Flying Pig: Extra Pale Ale, Refreshing, beautifully hopped, well balanced light colored ale, 5.0% – good hops, not overpowering.
Dunkelhead: Dark, bold and refreshing lager, 5.6% — not my style, glad I tried it, though.
Wheathead: Refreshingly satisfying wheat beer, ABV 5.2% — off/odd for wheat. I was expecting more of a Hef.
There food was good. Had a delicious salad with salmon.
Great way to close out my week in San Antonio. Check this place out if you’re looking for some local brew and you’re in the area.
