San Antonio’s Top Breweries

Vista Brewing San Antonio

The Vista Brewing cafe and taproom is located in San Antonio’s Dignowity Hill neighborhood, just a few blocks from the vibrant Pearl District. This urban taproom brings a taste of the Texas Hill Country to the city. Vista beers are made with limestone-filtered water from a well on their ranch property, creating an elegant, dry beer with a fresh, crisp flavor.

Alamo Beer Company

Also located in the Dignowity Hill neighborhood, Alamo Beer Company sits under the historic Hays Street Bridge. Since December 2014, Alamo Beer Company has proudly brewed the only beer to bear the Alamo name since the start of Prohibition in 1919. This is a favorite spot among locals to spread out on the lawn, take in the sunshine, and kick back with an ice-cold beer and yard games.


Breakaway Brewing Company Beer and Burgers


Breakaway Brewing Company

Located a short bike ride away in the Government Hill neighborhood is Breakaway Brewing Company. This unique cycling-themed brewery and gastropub was founded by a pair of Pacific Northwesterners-turned Texans. The unique spot combines their two loves: bikes and beers!

Here’s an Idea!

Why not gather your friends and host your own brewery crawl between these three spots? Their close proximity makes it easy to walk or bike between locations for a day of exploring your favorite beers on tap, as well as two historic San Antonio neighborhoods. Remember to imbibe responsibly!

The list doesn’t stop there! We have a truly unique find for you. Typically, you find wineries situated in expansive vineyards. But what if we told you there’s a winery in downtown San Antonio?
