“Best microbrew in San Antonio”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

We live in Austin but every time we visit San Antonio we make a point to come up north (off 1604) to Freetail Bewing Co. It's not a big place but the beers are well-crafted and flavorful, and their food menu is strong too. They have 2 IPSa that are great, try them both to see which you like better! BBQ Chicken Pizza is one of the better ones I've had.

If you're downtown it will be a bit of a trek, but if you're a craft brew fan it will be worth the drive (20-25 minutes from downtown depending on the traffic).

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2012 via mobile

Not much more I can say to better represent how much I live this place.

Unique beers, great food, axing atmosphere, live music, and great people.

Get the goat cheese dip and sample some of their more interesting beers (ex. Saisson w/ rosemary and pepper), they're awesome!

You can also get growlers for home. What more do you want?!?

“Good beer and food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2012 via mobile

I usually look for breweries where ever I go this one was worth the trip. We had some pizza that was really good, but mainly came for the beer. They had a decent selection although most of their guest beers were sold out. Their beers overall were good except the sour one. It was awful not really my style though.

“Great food and beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2012

Freetail has an excellent selection of their own beers, which are all good. The food is also superior. The goat cheese dip was unique and fabulous. The macaroni and cheese was fantastic. It is a casual place.

“Great IPA selection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2012 via mobile

Went here for a late dinner and was pleasantly surprised by the delicious pizza! I had a hard time choosing which one I wanted but ended up going with the Supreme Batastrophe. Pepperoni, sausage, red onion, mushrooms and bell peppers. Yum! Lots of IPA choices and they do a good job of rotating them out. I had the Broken Treaty IPA and I loved it! Service was excellent. I would definitely go back.
