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!

This is a small little place that has plenty of outdoor seating. The bar only had 4 stools, and a few hi-tops were inside, but it was mostly standing room space. Lots of wood and black wallpaper. Nice wooden decoration of state of Texas hangs from the ceiling. A large blackboard lists the beers on draft. A bottle and souvenir shop is in a room off the back of the bar.

Only Texas beers are served here which is an interesting concept. The bartenders are some of the most beer knowledgable folks I have experienced across the country. Plenty of people walked in not understanding the beers and the bartenders walked through a bunch of questions followed by a complete decription of the beer - which usually meant the customer knew what he was getting and appreciated the help.

The beers were all very good, and were a bit more of a unique offerings than other bars in Austin. Glasses were of correct style and were each checked for cleanliness before filling. These are the small things that show high quality of the place.

In my short 3 day visit of Austin, this was by far the best bar for service, quality, and beer offerings. This is a must visit by anyone coming to town. Simply outstanding.

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.

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.
