The Lone Star Brewery will be getting a new lease on life. Aqualand Development out of Austin has purchased the former brewery and has plans to turn it into a mixed use development. Located on south of downtown San Antonio, along the Mission Reach area of the Riverwalk, the Lone Star Brewery offers an opportunity to build a destination site, much like developers did with the old Pearl Brewery to the north of downtown. Aqualand Development has stated they will preserve the historic buildings in the development, which will include possible multifamily housing, retail, offices, a microbrewery, theater, music venues, open spaces, and a farmers market. So far Aqualand Development has purchased 60 acres of the Lone Star Brewery, including the brewery, cannery, and the grind shop, and has an option to purchase the rest at a later date from the owners.
