Austin has developed and is still growing its craft beer scene, so there is a lot of competition. Having said that, this is one of my favorite beer bars in the city. The bar and wall of taps is one of best designs I have seen in a bar. The selection is expansive and rotates based on what the beer expert owner wants. More importantly the beer menu is fool-proof, indicating the style, brewery, and short tasting notes. Location is great, cool recently developed street with establishments running out of old houses. The backyard is very large featuring long communal tables and a music stage from which they host many events. While Draught House up north usually takes the cake, Banger's is fast becoming a major player in Austin's beer scene.

I did not have any food. 101 taps even though a couple are taken by wine, cider, coffee, and kombucha. Very strong. If you are coming to Texas for beer, this is a wonderful place to start. Best local stuff you can find in theses parts. Definitely surprised by a few things on the list.

i don't like talking down about places or businesses so i won't. i will just say that the situation was so bad that i got my food for free and a 20 dollar gift card.i had high hopes for this place but unfortunately sometimes things don't always work out.

Didn't go in here for the food. I had a shrimp BBQ? It was a forgettable at best, a sausage link served on a bed of gritty mashed potatoes with bbq sauce splashed over the top of it.
Beer on the other hand, impressive. The must've had over 95 beers on tap with a few wines as well. Knowledgeable bartenders was a plus here. They explained the taste and beer style before serving.
