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.

Craft Pride is located off of Rainey which is roughly a 20 minute walk from the 6th street madness. This bar focuses on Texas beers and consistently has Yellow Rose on tap (if that's your thing).

The back of the bar has a nice outdoor area that has a pizza food truck with pretty darn good pizza. I actually visited this place several times during my short stay in Austin because its a great place to relax and enjoy a good beer.

Dipped in here for a beer with my wife and daughter.

The selection is extensive but as an out-of-towner looking to find gems like "Yellow Rose," "Divine Reserve" and other sought after stuff, I was a bit disappointed that none of these were available (despite me finding them at other places around Austin the same week). Still, there's a beer here for every taste bud and all the beers are Texas brews, which should serve as a reminder just how much damn beer Texas has to offer.

The vibe was nice and relaxed and probably would have been even more so if we'd elected to sit out in the back, eaten some pizza and caught some live music. It was early on a Wednesday so there wasn't much going though.

Overall, a nice place to drop in and if I hadn't been with the family I'd have probably hung a while longer. Also, the mini-bottleshop is a nice touch and if I remember correctly the bottles for sale can be consumed onsite.
