A fine drinking establishment in San Antonio, Texas
near the Alamo Quarry
. The lab is best known (and rightly so) for their selection of incredible house brewed beers. At any given time throughout the year they have at least 4 or 5 available, depending on the season
. For instance, in autumn
they brew a Pumpkin Ale
, which is much, much better than it sounds. In the winter months they produce the awe-inspiring Calibration Ale
, which is a dark beer
with an alcohol content
roughly twice that of a normal brew. However, it is in the spring and summer that they bring out the Javelina Jefe Weissen
, which is truly one of the greatest substances I have ever had the pleasure of pouring down my ravenous gullet
The best way to experience these beers is with a Big-Ass Glass, which is a special Pilsner glass that you can buy at the bar for $6. You can get a B.A.G. refilled with any of their beers on tap for the low, low price of $2.50.
The Lab has both an indoor and outdoor stage, and on a typical weekend evening has a live band on the indoor stage, and a DJ playing dance music on the outdoor. They also operate a kitchen until about 9 or 10 pm, where you can get a variety of deep fried delicacies.
Two great things to do at the lab:
1)See Skunkweed live on the indoor stage on a hot summer night, waving your Big Ass Glass full of Jefe proudly in the air to a rousing Irish drinking song.
2)Sit outside on a cold winter night around one of the open fire-pits, drinking a Calibration Ale and smoking a cigar with your best friends.
