The wife and I are planning on hanging out in San Antonio for the long weekend. Are there any breweries or restaurants/pubs with breweries we should check out?

There is the Blue Star Brewery in San Antonio. Haven't been there yet myself, but I have seen it recommended a few times on here.

If you hit the burbs, The Dodging Duck in Boerne is superb.

Freetail for your brewpub cravings and Flying Saucer, The Cove, Tap Exchange, or Yard House for good craft beer. They do a short brewery tour at Freetail on Saturday around noon.

Sadly, Blue Star is not what it used to be after their headbrewer, Jason, left for Freetail...

Freetail was very good! I tried a sample of their smoked blond ale, it wasn't what I was in the mood for but I got a growler of it to take. I also had a pint of their Summer Saison, and a glass of their experimental Hopothesis beer, which was 11.5% ABV and 100IBUs. The waitress didn't know much about the Hopothesis beer and since I was enjoy my time with the wife I didn't want to get up to bother the bartender. All I gathered was that they used Amarillo, Magnum, and a few others. Very little aroma to it, but it tasted a lot like what I would think hop tea would taste like.
Their pizza was great too! Also SWMBO had to drive me back to the hotel... 11.5% is a killer.
