Flying Saucer

I definitely like the Flying Saucer Pub (The Flying Saucer Draught Emporium - www.beerknurd.com) when I get a chance. It is not technically a microbrewery, but it has dozens of different beers. Freetail Brewing (Freetail Brewing Co. - Home) is a microbrew, and was pretty good the one time I went.

I really enjoy Freetail Brewing. Food is good to really good... and the beer is excellent.

Their Rye Wit is super yummy.

They also have Blue Star brewery. I've never been, so can't comment.
And maybe an hour from downtown in Boerne is Dodging Duck. These are all brewpubs. The closest production brewery is Real Ale in Blanco, maybe a little less than 2 hours north. Several more breweries in Austin (2 hours north-NE) if you feel like going for a drive.

my 2 cents

I would recommend Freetail for sure, good food and good beer. I try not to go when it's really busy though since the waitstaff is swamped. I like going for lunch or late lunch.

Bluestar is ok. I'm not a big fan. The first time I went the waiter didn't know anything about the beer they brew there and my wife got mad at me for being a "beer snob"

The second time I went they were out of 3 different food items we wanted to order. We ended up just not eating. They are also very commonly out of beer that they have on their chalkboard.

Never been to the Dodging Duck in Boerne but I've heard good things from a friend of mine.

Ah, correction! Ranger Creek Brewing and Distilling is now open in San Antonio. It's on Whirlwind Drive and their Oatmeal Pale Ale is now available on draft at Flying Saucer.
