Let me start out by saying... THIS IS MY FAVORITE BAR EVER!!!.
The Draughthouse is in a Bavarian Half-timber house in a neighborhood consisting of professional enterprises and residences. The draughthouse just celebrated their 40th anniversary. You can drink inside or go outside to the biergarten or just sit on your truck tailgate in the parking lot and drink.
Now to the beer:
The house beers vary from very good to exceptional. They just seem to get better and better. My favs are the double IPA and espresso stout. If they are on tap make sure to get those.
They always have a very solid tap selection. They have all the Texas locals and have a dozen or so beers on rotation. They usually have a cask of their house beer available.
The prices are very reasonable. Most pints are less than $5 and they have frequent specials.
The food is a step up from typical bar food. They have a limited menu of pizza, calzone, nachos, but they give you huge portions and put generous amounts of jalapenos on. Saturday nights they have free bratwurst which is very good.
I'm really surprised that this is never on the Top 50 Bars lists. That's ok by me -- keeps the hype down.
Let me finish by saying: If you are near Austin and like to drink good beer you must stop here! It's well worth it.
