Breweries | Visiting breweries is always a great excuse to drink long before it becomes socially acceptable. A few samples of beer before noon never hurt anyone, right? San Antonio bars love to feature local brews, including those by the Blue Star Brewing Company. College students, hipsters and businesspeople congregate at this San Antonio brewpub to sample premium local brews and have a nice meal. Breweries are also good to visit because the dollars spent go directly to supporting local business, and what could be better than that? Supporting local business is like paying taxes or making charitable donations—the more you drink, the better off San Antonio is. So gather a group of friends and strap on your drinking shoes—theres a city, and local brewpubs, in need of financial support.
