Freetail Brewing Co. was founded in 2008 and has been brewing the best craft beer in the state ever since. We started at the brewpub on San Antonio’s north side, serving amazing pizza and delicious brews the city had never seen before. Freetail was instrumental in changing the laws in Texas to allow craft breweries to both sell their product at their brewpubs and also package and distribute their brews across the state. When the laws were changed in 2013, Freetail Brewing Co. began work on our S Presa Production Brewery which opened in 2014. We’ve been distributing craft beer all across Texas ever since and continuing to build the craft beer community here in San Antonio. Cheers and Hang With A Local! Your 35-minute narrated cruise in our brand-new, colorful and quiet electric barges will take you on an enchanting journey through San Antonio’s rich history, from La Villita, the city’s first neighborhood (and where General Santa Anna placed his cannon line in the Battle of the Alamo)… past the Old Mill Crossing where Teddy Roosevelt led his Rough Riders…You’ll learn about our city’s architecture and points of interest, such as Selena’s Bridge, where Tejano superstar Selena Quintanilla Pérez’s husband proposed to her in the movie; the Hyatt Regency Hotel, designed so its height would not cast a shadow on the Alamo in the setting sun; and the Briscoe Western Art Museum. Our German, Mexican, French, Irish, and American Indian heritages create a culture unique to San Antonio. Join the fun and networking!
