San Antonio has no shortage of beer joints, and visiting all of them is a definite must. But there's one far North Side institution that every beer-loving local should frequent often. Drink your way through the hundreds of brews at Hills and Dales Ice House. This dive off 1604 boasts a wall of coolers stocked with around 400 brews. Down them all — not at once, of course — and earn a spot on the bar's crowded wall with a sign commemorating your hoppy achievement. Longtime locals are familiar with Hills and Dales reputation as a biker bar, but you'll usually find people of all types in this ice house enjoying a few cold ones. Be sure to get some of the best bahn mi in town at the Singhs Vietnamese food truck, which is parked across the street most nights. 15403 White Fawn Dr., (210) 695-2307
