Man steals patio furniture from San Antonio’s Dooryard – mySA

Management at a Woods of Shavano bar and taproom are scratching their head after a local thief visited their patio to do some furniture shopping using the five-finger discount. 

Dooryard owner Jason Meredith told MySA that security footage showed the furniture was stolen in the early morning hours on Monday, January 9, and Tuesday, January 10. The business is closed on Mondays, so the thefts were not known until staff came to open the self-serve taproom on Tuesday. 

Meredith said that a man, obscured by a hat and twilight darkness, was captured walking onto the Dooryard’s patio and muscling one of the tables to a vehicle parked off-camera around 3:30 a.m. on Monday. On Tuesday, the man returned and parked a truck pulling a utility trailer in view of the camera and stole a second picnic table around 5:30 a.m.

The tables were the only things the man took, Meredith said. 

“That’s on us,” Meredith said. “We didn’t lock them up, we just didn’t figure we needed to since they are giant, heavy tables. Luckily they didn’t take anything else.”  

The Dooryard isn’t the only local taproom to have vandalism issues recently. Roapmap Brewing shared on Facebook on Monday, January 9, that someone punched through a window at the downtown taproom, saying police would “like to have a conversation with him.”

MySA reached out to Roapmap Brewing for more information. 

“Although we’ve been talking about expanding the patio, please let this fella know that this isn’t really the direction we were thinking,” the brewery said in the social media post. 

Meredith said he has filed a report with police and is hoping that people will come and sit for a beer (or a few) to help them buy some new tables. 

The Dooryard is a self-serve taproom in San Antonio that offers a rotating menu of craft beer, hard selzter and a house-made margarita across 30 taps. It is located at 4503 De Zavala Road, Suite 108, San Antonio, TX 78249.
