CraftPride is as close to a perfect craft beer bar as you can get. The look from the outside, dark wood cabin feel, but inviting. Same inside, its dark, but strangely well light and welcoming. The way the seating is, the way the layout of the large back patio, its just comfortable. The beer selection is all local Texas beer. And not just the "off the shelf" stuff. They get the best of the best, the rare releases, and they get single one time releases. Last year I remember they had a Hops & Grain Alteration on Nitro, which I have never seen since. The staff knows their beers, and will work with you to find your pour. A number of times I have sat at the bar, listening to the bartenders asking questions to the patrons, giving samples, working for the perfect fit.

Food... good lord... they have a food truck in the back called 313 Detroit Style Pizza. If you like thick crust pizza, then you are done here. This maybe the best thick crust pizza. Garlic, buttery soft thick crust, the sauce is alive, and they have fresh toppings. And the choices are excellent.

If I had to pick a negative, it would be location. But thats a reach. It can get a little D-Bag on the weekends. Its more of a warning then a negative.

A great new beer bar that opened opened a few weeks ago. Just down the street from Bangers, and all the seemingly new places on this street. Well at least, I don't remember this part being so busy in years past. Take that with a grain of salt, beside two weeks ago, and now this week, it has been years since I was in Austin...

Anyway, a small area out front, a tiny wood bar in front of the tap wall. Some couches, and a wide open area to mingle inside. Out back is a great patio that will have some food trucks. The service is very friendly, and knowledgeable. Also fun to talk to. I remember one guy that use to work at the Gingerman in Houston, awesome.

I love the beer selection. 100% Texas breweries. 50 taps, plus two casks. That might be the most Texas beers available at one time anywhere in the state. That is saying something. Rogness, Real Ale, Austin Beer Works, Saint Arnold, 512, Jester King, and on and on...The quality is pretty damn good as well. The two casks are in great condition, Real Ale Blonde Barleywine, and 512 Black IPA.

Austin has always had a great beer culture. Though recently, there have been a mass of excellent beer bars opening up. This is one of them.

Love this place great beer selection, however I really wish it wasn't located on Rainey St (hipster hell). I would have given a 5 otherwise.

Texas has some great breweries and this place always has their great seasonal and special brews. Great little store in the back. Via 313 trailer in the back is fantastic. Get the cadillac. They should really consider opening one up in Denver and Portland.
