Good times are always brewing

Head to the river. The northern reach, that is. Leisurely stroll down the River Walk’s Museum Reach and pit stop at Pearl for local food, entertainment and fun. Explore the San Antonio Botanical Garden and parks along South Broadway, or catch a concert on the banks of the river. The experience is yours for the taking. Come see what’s new.

Historical Significance

In 1881, the City Brewery was founded on Pearl grounds. And, by 1916, it was the largest brewery in Texas. What’s more is, under the direction of Chief Executive Officer Emma Koehler, it was the only brewery in San Antonio to survive prohibition.
