SAN antonio lager

San Antonio Lager is an easy drinking German-style lager, brewed in honor of our city. Nostalgic enough for San Antonio’s amazing history but contemporary like our city today. It's refreshing while also flavorful enough for craft beer drinkers. Just like our city, It’s got a little something for everyone.

Named after the C-53 Skytrooper, a variant of the C-47 Skytrain aircraft flown during WWII, this India Pale Ale (IPA) honors the aviation community in San Antonio both past and present. Known affectionately to troops as the Gooney Bird, the C-47 served as the core for soldier and equipment transport in that era. The Skytrooper IPA is brewed with Amarillo and Centennial hops giving both the aroma and taste a tropical and citrus character. The taste is clean with a balanced profile from the Marris Otter and German pale malt. A true celebration of hop aroma, flavor, and bitterness!

Small Batch No. 13 W FIGS

Small Batch # 13 is a Belgian Dark Strong Ale base aged for 24-months with Lactobacillus, Pediococcus, and Brettanomyces as well as a house strain of wild yeast. The batch was split into two separate vats with the additions of cherries and figs. Both variations have been packaged in the traditional Oude Lambic style without the addition of sugars. The distinguishing characteristic of pure lambic is its lack of re-fermentation in the bottle, thus producing a still beer. Vinous, fruity, musty, acetic, and lactic acid flavors come together to give this beer an authentic drinking experience. Small Batch # 13 is meant to be sipped at 48F in a Teku glass to enhance the complex flavor and aroma. If aging this beer even longer, store in a cool, dark place.
