  • Giant Noise
Ever wonder how the tastes of San Antonio craft beer enthusiasts stack up against those in other Texas cities? Well, wonder no longer.

Turns out, Alamo City craft enthusiasts love their ales and IPAs — including hazy and Northeast-style IPAs — more than folks in any other metro. What don’t we dig? Apparently, drinkers here aren’t sweet on sour or wild styles, and we’re also fairly indifferent to lagers and pilsners.
So, now you know.
