Stopped in here after stoping at Banger's, figured it was so close I might as well hit both. Atmosphere was a little dead compared to Banger's but that is fine with me. Beers are all listed up on the wall. Really enjoyed the awesome patio area out back, especially the food truck... Service was great. Bartender helped me order and then stuck around to talk about the local beer scene, even gave me a tip on where to get some bottles I was after. The food is truly world class. VIA 313 is one of the best pies in the country for a very good reason, one of the best things I ate on the whole trip. Quality and Selection were both awesome across the board. Tons of local beers on-tap and some world class pizza sitting out back. I had no problem finding something to try at both the bar and trailer. Overall I thought this was one of the best bars I visited on the whole trip. I will definitely return the next time I am in town.

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.
