    A great neighborhood hang out, focused mostly on drinks and the big screen for games. The food is rather decent as well, make sure to watch for your order number as it is self-serve.

    Don't say the bartender for advice, he won't provide any.

    There were a lot of beers to choose from but the bartender we had with the taps did not really have a lot of beer knowledge. I ended up with an ale that was very hoppy that I did not like.

    A nice selection of beers on tap and bottle will keep most people happy. The Micheladas were tasty albeit small but will give Taco Haven (my fave) a run for their money.

    Patio is next level for San Antonio. Wide range of craft beers on tap and the only downside is no booze.
