What You'll Get
In his famous classical conditioning experiment, Ivan Pavlov proved that it’s physically impossible for a Russian scientist's mouth not to water when it says the word “burger.” Moisten your own sandwich receptacle with today’s Groupon. For $15, you get $35 worth of American pub fare and drinks at The Tap Exchange Alehouse & Grill.
Easily transportable, sandwiches are the ideal lunchtime meal. You get a variety of food groups in every bite without annoying utensil requirements, prep work, or cleanup. At The Tap Exchange, patrons can sample a variety of mitt-fitting grub while sipping on a head-spinning array of brews. With the guidance of a friendly and knowledgeable staff, patrons can take their palate for a swim with roughly 60 tap-poured beers, such as Stone Imperial Russian Stout and Stone Arrogant Bastard. Small bites like jalapeno poppers ($8.99) pave the way for bun-handled eats such as the River City cheesesteak ($8.99) and a juicy black & bleu burger with coarse black pepper, bacon, bleu cheese, and mayo ($8.99 single, $12.99 double). Patrons preferring to use utensils can fork-dive into entrees such as the grouper with chipotle sauce, red cabbage, and cilantro aioli ($13.99).
Not every restaurant can pair the world-traveled pizzazz of a mustache-toting bullfighter with the comfort of said bullfighter’s pullout mattress. The Tap Exchange’s melding of fine brews and tasty fare does so with gusto. Kick back on a cushy leather sofa beneath soft-focused track lighting and relax in the welcoming cocoon of wood and copious brews.

- At dinner, our server suggested several pairings of different beers with food items, and nearly all worked nicely. A tender, rosemary-rubbed grilled pork chop, with grilled vegetables and a rice pilaf, evoked a feeling of home cooking. Naturally, there's no bar food that doesn't include burgers, and these didn't disappoint. The flavorful, juicy meat patties on lightly toasted buns with a big selection of toppings and combinations more than held their own on this menu. – Edmund Tijerina, San Antonio Express-News
- The place may not brew its own beer, but with so many great options it’s difficult to see how this is a problem. For beer lovers, we think it’s a must-try — just make sure to bring a driver. – Mark Jones, San Antonio Current
