Theology on Tap San Antonio is for young adults in their 20s and 30s, married or single, young families drawing crowds of college students who want to experience the wisdom and knowledge of the Catholic Church in a social way.

Young Adults meet at Blue Star Brewery monthly at 6 p.m. for live music and food. The speaker begins at 7 p.m., followed by a question and answer session at the end. The evening concludes at around 9 p.m.
