Now THIS is how a pub should be. This place is underneath a dentists office in a mostly residential area of Austin, but its located in a converted old house thats absolutely perfect for a British style pub. A lot of people complain about the crowding as it is a very small area, but its set up to encourage mingling, most of the tables being huge and the crowds on any given night ensuring that youll have at least a few strangers sitting at your table. Also, the staff doesnt seem to care too much if you bring your glassware outside, so no matter how crowded the interior gets theres always the great outdoors. The Draught House is one of the few places in town that not only brews its own beers but has a good selection of micro/imports on tap as well. They boast about 75 taps, with about 4 being used for the house brews. The house brews rotate out, meaning theres something new every week, and its the only brewpub in Austin that comes close to matching the Bitter End in terms of adventurous concoctions. The only real downside to the place is the staff - the place is small enough that they dont bother with waitresses, and often there is only one person behind the bar trying to take care of an endless line of patrons looking for a refill. Still, this is an out-of-the-way must for all beer fiends visiting Austin.
