Hard to believe SPI only has one brewpub. But at least it is a good one. Try the Speckled Trout Stout, you will NOT be sorry.

Not sure what the food was like but the beer was excellent. This cute little brewing company does a nice line of 5 different brews and serve them up as 5 samplers, glasses, and large, large servings that will certainly meet your beer needs. Service is middling to low with staff constantly distracted and chatting among themselves. Good thing the... More

We've eaten at PI Brewing on quite a few occasions, but have never gone just for happy hour. Some new friends we had met just days earlier suggested we meet there to see what the bargains were. We were not disappointed. Their house brews are all $3 a pint. Other drinks are fond sale, but I can't remember the price.... More

I stopped in while visiting the island to try out the local brewery fares. Wonderful selection. I prefer the darker and malt beers. I let the bartender know what kind I was looking for and he set me up with an excellent Speckled Trout Stout. I also ordered the ceveche, which was delicious. A plus was that I unwittingly came...

Really good micro brews and really good food, including pizza, hamburgers and fish. The one thing that bothers us is the noise! Really noisy place, sit at a big table with a group and it is really hard to even talk.

Nice place, good food and good beers are or can be the perfect combination when you are visiting a place and you just follow your instinct. We were there on the New Year day. We love beer and the place was at a walking distance from the condo we rent. We had fried calamari, a bit spicy and crunchy, and... More

My daughter and I had a hamburger and it was delicious although it was a little over cooked. They had a nice selection of beers and a nice menu.

There is large open room and a nice size bar but it was so bright. That seems petty, but it set a atmosphere like eating dinner in Kmart! (please dim the lights !!) We ordered a flight which was small servings of several of the featured beers and loved all but one. Ate a burger and it was fine. The... More

Description
"The gastropub movement is well-represented on South Padre Island at Padre Island Brewing Company. Rotating draft selections include several styles of handcrafted suds; Texas Long Board Lager, Tailing Red Amber, and Speckled Trout Stout are among my favorites, when available. If you can’t make up your mind, get the “Sampler Tray,” a tasting of all five beers currently on tap. The menu is extensive—“peel and eat” shrimp, spicy wings, and fried calamari are popular appetizers, as are the chips-and-guacamole combo, ceviche, and nachos. The bar has won an award for its pizza, but I recommend the burgers. If you’re really hungry, order the Texas Burger, a double-patty, one-pound monster topped with jalapenos, mushrooms, and cheese. From the seafood menu, beer-battered shrimp is an obvious choice, and the tuna and flounder are also excellent." From Texas Highways Magazine, June 2015
