Without dipping into Hill Country territory (where you’ll find Cibolo Creek Brewing, New Braunfels Brewing Co. and lauded 5 Stones Artisan Brewing, to name a few), San Antonio proper has breweries aplenty.
With its taproom and brewery off South Presa and original brewpub, Freetail is keeping most area beer drinkers happy. Try the Bexarliner series or their side project Ghost Pixel.

Established in 1996, one of the OGs of San Antonio brewing has a prime view of the Mission Reach extension of the River Walk. Stop in for a pint of Texican Lager, made specifically for South Texas, or the spunky Southtown Sour.
