The State of SA’s Craft Brew

Freetail (featured above) has served as a catalyst for our current beer renaissance


Our thirst for quality suds in San Antonio seems to be growing with no end in sight. More and more establishments are featuring beers not only from small and independent breweries around the U.S., but from San Antonio and Texas. Places like the back bar at The Cove, GS 1221 (a newly opened growler station at the 1221 apartments), The Friendly Spot and Big Hops Growler Station all strive to highlight what we have to offer in San Antonio.

With the change to beer laws in the last year, and a few more expected throughout the next several legislative sessions, the scene is set up to promote job growth, economic stimulus and more ales and lagers for consumers. The state of craft beer in San Antonio is on track to do formidable things in the next decade.

To celebrate this immense growth and in conjunction with American Craft Beer Week, area brewers and beer retailers are joining to celebrate the fourth annual San Antonio Beer Week. The festivities kick off Saturday, May 10 with opening ceremonies and tastings of a special SABW collaboration brew, followed by beer dinners, pub crawls, tap takeovers, educational seminars and special releases through Sunday, May 18. A full schedule can be found at sanantoniobeerweek.com. Cheers!
