Owners Joey and Magdalena Villareal started Blue Star Brewing Company in 1996. Joey’s first venture was his eponymous “Joey’s” in 1988. However, a trip to a brewpub in Ohio in 1988 piqued his interest in craft beers. With a new mission, the couple eventually established Blue Star Brewing. The craft brewery and restaurant today is a hub of activity, with "locals and hundreds of thousands of visitors each year".
Situated at one end of the historic Mission Reach, this premier brewery and restaurant serves a wide variety of craft beers and beer-based cocktails. The restaurant, meanwhile, has an extensive menu that uses only fresh, local ingredients. Undoubtedly, the Blue Star Brewing Company is on track to make history.
Blue Star Brewing has a several ongoing events such as Jazz Nights every Tuesday. On these nights, they feature local musicians playing big band jazz.
