I like Thirsty Bear, but I don't love it. The beer brewed here is pretty good, but not great. 21st Amendment's is a little better in my opinion. The sangria is pretty good, with lots of fruit.

The food at Thirsty Bear is again good, not great. I've been for lunch and dinner and have always liked my dishes, but was not blown away by anything.

My real issue is with pricing. I understand that tapas are small, but I expect that the entree side of the lunch and dinner menu will have larger portions, particularly considering the above-average prices.

This is a great place for a beer. It seems to be a very popular after work spot, since every time I have been here the bar area has been full. I made the mistake of ordering lemonade the last time I was there, and was charged separately for every drink. Next time I will definitely go for the beer.

After a long day at work one of Thirsty Bears Vanilla bears will really hit the spot and at $6 for a 20oz you really can't complain about the price. If you get a little hungry the tapas are great beer munchies if you can believe that.
Cheers

We had to host a corporate event and one of our team members selected Thirsty Bear. Its an OK restaurant with very nice banquet facilities. The food is good but you are really going for the atmosphere of the place. Our group was about 30 people and we had a private room the wait staff was very nice and more than accommodating. For the price that they charged us we all were wishing for a bit more food. Granted it is a Tapas place but many of the guests felt that they could have done a bit more. We would use it again, however with a smaller group it may be better.

PROS: great atmosphere
CONS: very loud / young crowd

Beer & Spanish Food? Go figure, but step in the Thirsty Bear and it all makes sense. Brenden Dobel, the Master Brewer, is one of the best brewers in the city and makes beer to suit all palates and taste. The tapas are excellent and offer small and large dishes and main courses. Try the paella - it's one of the best in the city

PROS: Great Beer and Great Food!
CONS: None
