Took a long bus ride up here during a recent trip to San Antonio.
Atmosphere is good. It's kind of strip-mall-ish from the outside but once inside it opens up nicely. There's outside seating at a large window opening up to the bar and plenty of inside seating in a fairly large space. The bar is at the back in an L-shape with the brewing equipment visible behind. La Muerta and Dirty Rat Bastard paraphernalia hang all over the place. A few TV's dot the space above the bar.
Quality is good. Now that I think about it all my beers came in large pint glasses but they were all at the proper temperature with proper amounts of head.
Service was very good. I never had to wait long to get refills and the gentleman behind the bar did his best (and a pretty nice job) of answering my random questions.
Selection was very good for a brewpub. A myriad of styles was available along with random treatments of the styles (cherries added to a stout, spirulina added to a wit, peppers added to a BSDA). I was told they normally had a guest tap but the tap was broken when I was in.
Food was good. I had the basic margherita pizza and it was better than expected. I can't speak to any other items but if they're as good as the pizza you'll enjoy it.
Value is good. I went on their pint night so the beer was exceptionally cheap but even the normal prices were reasonable.
Overall I was expecting big things before arriving, lowered my expectations at the door, and then saw them raised as I stepped inside. It's not in the most enchanting location but it more than makes up for it with what's inside. Well worth a stop if you're in the area.

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.
