The San Antonio River Foundation held its inaugural River Relay at Mission County Park on Saturday morning.
Friends, family, and bicycle enthusiasts of all skill levels came out to enjoy the first annual San Antonio Bike October Fest on Saturday at the Alamo Beer brewery in the Eastside.
In 2001, the Pearl Brewery was purchased by Silver Ventures, led by Christopher Goldbury, to launch one of the biggest re-development projects for mixed-use real estate in the history of San Antonio.
It’s official: The Alamo Beer Company brewery is finally open.
Nestled cozily into the high-backed wooden booths, turkeys and wildcats and moose peering down from the walls listening in, Brent “Doc” Watkins and the boys of South Texas Jazz laughed merrily in the spirit of the occasion. This wasn’t an ordinary Sunday, it was the kickoff to National Beer Week, and with an Alamo Beer in hand, the fellas dug into the beauty of their collaboration with the Esquire Tavern.
In all ways and always a jovial and jocular soul, Brandon “Daddy Long Legs” Revis, bassist for the ensemble, broke it down sentimental style. “The Esquire is a staple of San Antonio,” Revis said. “My grandmother used to frequent this bar, came everyday after work.”

Neither hell, high water nor near-freezing temperatures could derail the Alamo Beer Company groundbreaking this morning.
“It’s been 10 years,” said Eugene Simor, founder of Alamo Beer Company, “and it’s been a lot of blood, sweat, and beers.”
The San Antonio-based brewing operation celebrated its 10th anniversary at Bombay Bicycle Club on Tuesday night.
