Young adults enjoying beer in a barA new project is looking to revitalize the long-neglected Lone Star Brewery in San Antonio. The old brewery, found in Southtown between Lone Star Boulevard and Steves Avenue, hasn't been in operation since 1996. The revitalization project, headed by Aqualand Development and CBL & Associates Properties, looks to transform the brewery's relics into a state-of-the-art mixed-use development with an emphasis on condos, food, shopping, entertainment, and of course, beer.

The new development, scheduled to open in late 2018, is currently known as the "Lone Star Brewery District." Over $300 million is budgeted for the project, which aims to be the go-to cultural gathering spot in Southtown.
