You can't get more Texas than Pearl beer. This brewery is a beautiful landmark that stands out when driving on the highways around downtown. The limestone structure is now used for events, excercise classes, a culinary institute and more. You can also learn about the haunted stories surrounding it and about what was once the largest brewery in the entire state. You know it's big if it's in Texas and this is the largest of its kind.

This district of the city is new, up market and interesting. There are some great restaurants, shops, areas to wall and sit . Depending on your budget, you could spend a few hours in the area, strolling and generally taking in the sense of renewal that comes with the project. This had been a large brewery complex and there is... More

Everyone raved about how I just had to go to the pearl brewery, no one told me it wasn't a brewery anymore. As a beer lover I was excited, then I saw nothing but overpriced yuppie type restaurants and shops. What a waste of time, being from NY this was everything I don't like about my city, don't let San... More

The Full Goods Building is a great resource for hosting parties. Can handle 150 +/- very comfortably. Even works in the winter with heaters. Will book again.

Well we started walking on the river walk and about 5 miles later we landed at the Old Pearl Brewery, and very thirsty. It is great to see old buildings preserved and in use like this. They have made use of all of the old equipment like converting the brew tanks into cool sitting areas. It is a must to... More

What a great restoration! The industrial components of the old Pearl Brewery have been used as works of art. The complex has a high-end hotel, quality restaurants, a Culinary Institute of America campus and a beautiful section of the River Walk. I wish I could have spent more time here.

Love the fact that they saved these old buildings and made it a place to visit and enjoy. There are several restaurants and shops. The hotel is very impressive as it is part of the main brewery building. May have to look into staying here next time in San Antonio.

Locals told us to go here, and I am so glad we did. The Pearl is a truly super cool, groovy, well done newly reclaimed area of San Antonio just north of River Walk area ($6 Uber). There is quite a lot of great food, very cool buildings, and areas to walk. Go see the Hotel Emma lobby, then eat... More
