Grab a cold one during San Antonio Beer Week

Flavor Favs: Branchline Brewing & Busted Sandal

SAN ANTONIO – Before 2012, only one local brewery existed in San Antonio. Four years later, there are several across the city, making craft beer a growing trend.

The second brewery to open in the Alamo City was Branchline Brewing.

"It's taken us a little longer than a lot of places in the state, but I think we are getting to the point where it's a well-known thing here in San Antonio," Branchline Owner Jason Ard said.

Several Branchline beers can now be found in locations around town. Some of those include the brewery's newest beers like Dark Territory and Silver and Black.

Another local brewery making a name for itself is Busted Sandal, which served their first beer in 2013.

"It's been a magical journey, lots of hard work but a lot of appreciative customers," Busted Sandal brewer owner  Robert Garza said. "We enjoy sharing ourselves and our beer with San Antonio."

As the craft beer industry grows so does San Antonio Beer Week, which now features over 100 events.

"You've got all kinds of great events going on, thrown by all different breweries," Garza said.
