The Cove, meanwhile, has expanded just in time to capture a piece of San Antonio’s beer renaissance. In addition to the new bar, The Cove has opened a small dog park and nearly doubled the restaurant’s garden, making room for poblanos, jalapeños, kale, and an expanded herb plot. And the Asvestas are staying true to the Cove’s sustainable roots, recycling and reusing what they can. On a recent visit, old bowling alley lanes sat under tarps, waiting to be turned into tables. An old pecan tree, which once sat in the middle of The Cove parking lot before it died, provided the wood for the new bar.

“I think Sam and I have grown as individuals, our tastes have grown,” said Lisa Asvestas. “We really love celebrating Texas here. Now we’re just celebrating Texas with our beer.”
