First, the beer - The selection of beers is constantly changing, but based on my experience they usually have a very diverse selection to choose from, at times having several tasty IPAs on tap. I don't believe I've had a bad beer from Freetail, they are usually very satisfying.
The Food - Typical bar fare, the pizzas are decent.
Atmosphere - Laid back. Plenty of Tvs make this place ideal for watching football on Sundays. The patio area is nice as well.

Stopped by for a couple beers during a trip to San Antonio. That night was a killer deal of half price pints.
Atmosphere is modern. Smallish bar along the back wall which is where I sat. plenty of tables for dinning, and an outdoor patio with additional tables. Pizza oven is visible in the back space. A giant projector screen above the bar indicates the current beer offerings.
They had about a dozen beers on tap, plus a few "guest beers" from other breweries. Beers were a mix of standards and some funky one-offs, like the Green Curry Wit beer I had. Beer was tasty. Food looked good but I didn't eat anything.
Definitely worth checking out.

This place was great! We really enjoyed the choice of beer and that you can taste test what you might be interested in before purchasing a large glass. The sour they have available is really good if you like sours; it has an interesting smoke flavor from the smoked barley it is brewed with, but I think my favorite was the Witicus light colored but still a little heavy with ingredients. The service at the bar great and can't wait to go back again

This place pumps out a variety of good beers. Check their website before you go because sometimes their selection leaves a bit to be desired, but when they have a saison or la muerta stout or one of their barrel aged selections, you should beat a path to their door. Tuesday nights are $2.50 pints. What a deal. Sunday has $10 growlers. Be patient. I went a few times and did not find a beer that I really liked that much, but later found several beers that range from good to exceptional (here's looking at you Verano Sin Fin saison).

Went down for Le Muerta day 2012 for a break from the cold. Wonderful release atmosphere, real relaxed fun event before hand. Even met the brewer as our host thought it was cool we came all that way to hang out. For as hectic as the release was the waitress handled herself well. Had nachos and several different pizzas and all were excellent.
Tap list was super and featured other Texas beers as well if I remember right. Very reasonable costs and may even go on the cheap side.
Would definitely go here again if I'm ever in San Antonio or Austin.

I have made many stops at Freetail and have never been disappointed. First, the atmosphere is excellent, a bunch of laid back beer and food lovers enjoying themselves. Barrels surround patrons, peaking curiosity of their contents. Soccer matches can be fun/packed, so plan accordingly. I'm not the biggest soccer fan by any means but the atmosphere here is awesome during soccer matches.
Service has always been good, I always receive the correct order and usually in a timely fashion. Some servers are obviously better than others but that is to be expected, no big.
The food is tremendous, I have only had pizzas and the goat cheese & artichoke dip and they are spot on. Pizza carbonara, brisket pizza, meathead, batastrophe, mac n' cheese pizza, and the Montgomery are all fantastic.
Now to the important stuff: beer. I have been fortunate enough to stop by for their specialties (La Muerta, Ananke (& raspberry), Peche'cus, etc.) and they are as good as advertised. The not-so-coveted beers have all been delicious as well. The beer board (along with their app and website) give you an instantaneous look at what they have on tap. The website is usually accurate on what they have to-go in bottles as well. They have ~5 guest beers, filled with some occasional rarities. Freetail has various bottle releases and special events/tappings throughout the year with many of their delicious brews available at the same time. Flights are also available when you just can't make up your mind.
