Hop & Vine is proud of their beer selection with alcohol by volume beers you can select one that is a little milder than another. For example, their Freaky Deaky is a Belgian Tripel with 10% ABV. It is light in color and brewed with American Hops. Or for those of you who prefer less alcohol by volume try to Mango Cart Fruit Beer that is only 4% ABV.

Southernleigh Fine Food and Brewery has a long history. Originally established in 1881 as the J.B. Behloradsky Brewery it was sold to San Antonio Brewing Association in 1883 where it was rebuilt and renamed Pearl’s Brewhouse in 1894. Known as the largest brewery in Texas by 1916 it was the only brewery in San Antonio to survive Prohibition. Sadly it was closed down in 2001. Silver Ventures acquired the property in 2002 and started to renovate the Pearl which eventually became the Southerleigh Fine Food and Brewery
Sporting over nine hundred reviews online, the Southerleigh Fine Food and Brewery should be on our bucket list in San Antonio.
