Free Beer Tasting at The Hangar Tavern

Hey guys! I had so much fun at our first Beer Tasting. It was so nice to meet all of you, and I appreciate everyone who came out and tried beers with us :)

I read through the feedback you all left. This time we're going to try to accommodate you all better than last time (it was the first beer tasting we did and the first meetup as well). I'm moving the check-in table right by the entrance. I'm trying to get standing lamps so that you all can see better. I'll be passing out name tags so everyone can see your name. I'm also going to reserve a few tables specifically for the San Antonio Beer Club so you all can know who's who and get to talk with each other. Signs will be posted on the tables. Keep the feedback coming and hope to see you at our next Beer Tasting on Sept. 4!

Sept. 4 Fall Brews will come from:
No Label Brewing Co. (Katy, TX)
Pedernales Brewing Company (Fredericksberg, TX)
Oskar Blues Brewery (Longmont, CO)
Stone Brewing Co. (Escondido, CA)
Wasatch Pubs & Beers (Park City, UT)
Full Sail Brewing Company (Hood River, OR)
Dogfish Head Beer (Milton, DE)

Wednesday Night Specials:
$3.50 Firemans 4 and Firemans 4 Squared
$4.50 Pinnacle Flavors
$4.00 Patron XO
$2.75 Coors Light
.50 cent wings all day

    I had lunch at Pizza Italia the other day, and the owner told me they are going to knock out a wall and expand into the space next door. They will have a bar with about 30 beers on tap. That's in addition to the 250 or so bottled beers they have in their big cooler. Hopefully the expansion will be done by the end of the year. Their pizza's good, too.

      I love Pizza Italia! I haven't been there in forever though, since it is easy to spend 50 dollars or more in one visit. I recommend Cooper's Best Extra Stout if they have it in stock. *waves to Karen*

      September 15, 2013

    • Karen

      I go there for lunch two or three times a month, so I'll let you guys know when the expansion is complete and the taps are pouring!

    Sounds like we need to visit when remodeling is complete.

    I went to the Hanger this week, enjoyed a couple beers, visited with staff and new friends. It was very nice. Thanks to Kim for introducing this venue.

    Is anyone going to the Ranger Creek Brewing open house Saturday?

    1 · September 5, 2013

    • Mitch T.

      I'm putting it on my calendar. Thanks for letting us know.

      Ranger Creek open house was a blast btw.

    I had a lot of fun. Some people said that they were not with meetup, but still had name tags. Also the wings were not 50 cents, but I still had fun.

    2 · September 5, 2013

    • Lisa

      All you had to do was tell them the Meetup said they were.50 & they would have changed the price for you :) that's what I did at around 9:00 and I showed them on my phone and they gave it to me :)

      1 · September 5, 2013

      They were delicious :)

    It wad a fine evening, my first meet up. I will participate in future meets and will go to The Hager for a beer and pleasant conversation. Thanks Kim

    As likely the oldest guy there, I can attest that the crowd was mellow and I wouldn't want it any other way. The fact that the event was skewed toward a younger age group was fine with me. It was great fun attending an event where age is nothing more than a number. I has no trouble sampling as much beer as I wanted and thoroughly enjoyed charting with the reps. Don't change a thing, and certainly don't start limiting access with tickets.

    • Kim

      Thanks for your feedback Gary! Appreciate it! :)

      1 · September 5, 2013

    • Mitch T.

      I thought it was a great event, my first meet up. I will come back and will go to the Hangeir for a nice evening in the future. Thanks Kim for bringing it together. Diversity is a very good thing, the crowd, the people and the location - all good.

    I suggest we show appreciation to the breweries for displaying their wares by visiting the markets where they're sold and purchasing what we especially liked. I picked up a 6pack of Bombshell Blond at HEB Northwoods.

    1 · September 5, 2013

  • Jim

    I'm old. Doesn't matter. The Beer Meetup is a great idea, but bottom line is was just too crowded for this old guy who likes to take it easy when he has a beer. I appreciate those who did all the work putting the last two together. It's just not for me right now.

    1 · September 5, 2013

    • Gary K.

      From one old guy to another, that's more like it Jim. Thanks for mellowing out. This meetup group offers something for everyone, even if it's not everyone at the same time. Every member can recommend a venue that might appeal to him/her and it's likely it will appeal to others as well. See you at the next event, I hope!

      2 · September 5, 2013

  • Jim

    Evidently an RSVP was not needed. Just walk in, fill out a name tag, and drink all the free beer you want. Really, molested in the parking lot??? I won't be going back to that meet up!

    September 5, 2013

    • Gary K.

      You're blaming the meetup for an alleged incident in the parking lot? Are there any witnesses? Crime occurs everywhere. Why should the organizers know anything about this incident? Why should they be held responsible? Why should they send you, or anyone else, an email? You don't want to attend another meetup? I'm sure you won't be missed.

      3 · September 5, 2013

    • Lisa

      This was my first time with this meetup group. I had a very nice time. But I have a question for Jim (or anyone I guess) I thought this bar was for "anyone" as far as the "free beer" tasting goes, wasn't it? where-as the "Name-tag" identified our Meetup group. or am I wrong? IF I'm correct then I think what may have happened is some people saw the name-tags and thought oh that's cool I'll fill one out too, but they didn't know it was just for our group. whereas the parking lot incident is a whole different incident.

    Beer tasting. Not an event to get drunk at! Try em once. Rate em. Buy your own after that.

    September 5, 2013

  • Jim

    Leaving the beer tasting! Very disappointed. Too dang many people. The young guys are huddled around the beer tables drinking several cups of beer and just flirting with the beer girls! There's no continuous flow between the tables.

    September 4, 2013

    • Kim

      Yes, Chris...you can find them on The Hangar Tavern's Facebook page. Here is the link: https://www.facebook.c...­

    • Chris

      Thank you!

      1 · September 5, 2013

    I hope everyone thanks Kim for her effort. She did a heck of a job! Thank you Kim :)

    1 · September 5, 2013

  • Chris

    I had a heck of a time...sorry Daisy and Mike for leaving abruptly, but my ride wasn't too happy about waiting. Lisa, I think, was one of the last left as well...nice to meet you, too. I can't wait for the next one, although a weekend might give people a better chance to mingle. I also had a really good game of darts with...well, a couple of nice ladies and one guy...sorry I can't recall your names! Thank you, Kim!!

    1 · September 5, 2013

  • Lisa

    Really great variety of beers. The wings were excellent. I had to point out the discount price that was given here, otherwise it would have cost me twice as much :( really great turnout of people. I don't know if it was the material of my dress or what, but I kept losing my name tag.

    3 · September 4, 2013

  • Mitch T.

    Had a great time. I want more. Good. Conversation, intersting people. I thou it was well done. Thanks to all

    3 · September 4, 2013

  • Jim

    Too crowded. Too many young guys just hanging out at the beer tables drinking several cups of beer. Give one ticket per beer represented to take care of that problem.

    September 4, 2013

  • Mike

    Tough choices on choosing the best beer. I think I'm gonna have to try them all again to be sure :p

    3 · September 4, 2013

    I sure hope I don't get soaked going out there on the bus :/

    September 4, 2013

  • Lisa

    This is my first time there, is it super hot in there? Is it a real "hanger" are we standing and mingling, or does our group have a table?

    1 · September 4, 2013

    • P F.

      It's a hangar with airplanes and... -no just kidding its just the name of the bar

      2 · September 4, 2013

    • Kim

      Hey Lisa! We keep it cool, both temperature and attitude ;) I'm going to have a few tables reserved with "The San Antonio Beer Club" signs on them. You're also welcome to stand and mingle as well. There will be a check-in table with name tags available so we can know each other's names :) See you tonight!

      September 4, 2013

  • Mitch T.

    Looking forward to meeting, beer, conversations.

    Hi Kim, thanks! I'm looking forward to it. R u one of the beer rep's?

    1 · August 29, 2013

    • Kim

      Looking forward to having you Ben! No, I'm not a beer rep...just a beer lover! ;) I wanted to host a beer tasting & thought The Hangar Tavern would be the perfect place to do it. They said yes, so now here we are! The first one was such a success that they've decided to have one on the 1st Wednesday of every month.

      1 · August 30, 2013

  • Jim

    OK, what changed?

    1 · August 29, 2013

    • Kim

      Nothing changed. I think one of the members, Karen, might have accidentally removed the location so I added it back.

      August 30, 2013

  • Kim changed the location to The Hangar Tavern

    August 29, 2013

  • Karen removed the location. It was The Hangar Tavern

    August 29, 2013

  • Ben

    I attended this last month and it was great. I'm in!

    1 · August 28, 2013

    • Kim

      Glad you're able to make it out again!

      August 29, 2013

  • Joe S.

    It sounds like the things you mentioned will be a great improvement. I think I'll give it another try :-)
