Went in on a Thursday night from 5-8pm and wasn't crowded at all sitting at the bar. Two great bartenders helped me out through the night offering recommendations of the many Texas beers I hadn't seen before. Their selection is ONLY Texas beer, but that does not make it limited -- I'm going back again tonight because I couldn't try half of everything I wanted! Great pizza food truck outside that will deliver to your seat inside the bar. I had a prosciutto and fig glaze pizza that was delicious! Overall, this is one the cleanest, friendliest, quietest bars I've been to -- and I mean that in a good way. No big TVs, no gimmicks -- just great beer and company!

A: I love it. Outdoor seating, porch seating, some nice areas for small groups.

Q: Great pours from knowledgeable beer people.

S: Great folks working there.

S: A metric crap ton of Texas beers. What more do you need?

F: There is a pizza truck in the back but I've never had it.

V: Good pricing. No complaints.

The only downsides: crap parking and gets busy on the weekends. Typical Rainey St. Go anyways.

Down the street from Banger's in the Rainey District is Craft Pride, a newish beer bar with All-Texas beer, all the time.

Inside it looks like a log cabin deep in the Wisconsin woods, or a newly-built sauna somewhere in Scandinavia and filled with sweaty, bearded hipsters. Lots of space to roam and a super-chill atmosphere on a Friday night.

Among the drafts: Devil's Backbone, Convict Hill, 667 IPA, 512 DIPA and a ton more. Affable staff and a great garden/patio outside.

Love this place!

We shot several episodes of Locapour at Craft Pride. The first is live on the site now at http://locapour.tv/austin/512ipa

Craft Pride is everything you would want a craft beer bar to be and more. The owners, JT & Brandy Egli are beyond passionate about the beer and have created the most welcoming atmosphere I have ever experienced.

As JT told me "I hate beer snobs!" There's a difference between being a fan, enthusiast or even a craft beer zealot and being a snob. JT, Brandy and the staff at Craft Pride greet every customer with a big smile and see their role as to help you enjoy beer.

If you are coming to Austin, Craft Pride must be on your list of places to visit. They have the most complete menu of Texas brewed craft beers I have seen. In fact, their tap wall is exclusively Texas craft beer which means you will really get to experience super fresh local craft beer.

I LOVE Craft Pride. I love the location, the atmosphere, the staff who is really proud to be Craft Priders, the beer selection. Craft Pride serves Texas beers only and you may think it's a limiting factor but on the contrary. I love the fact that they still manage to keep the menu really exciting. Luckily TX has great breweries to offer; Deep Ellum, Thirsty Planet, 512...they all have great stuff and you can find it all at Craft Pride.

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.
