Any spring day will do to head over to "The Oldest Post in Texas" and enjoy the biergarten. This Victorian-style home is open to the public, so anyone can take in its splendor and learn from its history, which dates back to 1917. Moreover, you can make use of the breezy, San Antonio River-adjacent patio filled with wooden picnic tables and patrons that span the gamut from World War II veterans and families to 20-something hipsters taking in cold brewskies en route to the Pearl. The beer selection won't knock any socks off (Bud Light, Modelo, Ziegenbock and Shock Top are all staples), but we'll wash down buckets as the mercury rises come summertime. Although, prices vary, buckets range from $2 to $3 per brew during happy hour (4-7 p.m. Monday-Thursday). 10 Tenth St., (210) 223-4581, vfwpost76ontheriverwalk.org
