First time toRainey St and stopped at Craft Pride cuz they had Yellow Rose onTap. Happy happy.
Great place. Spoke with Sosa behind bar who took time to talk even though the bar was filling up. Good guy. Pointed me to other good stops while in Hill Country.
Outstanding selection of Texas craft beers.
All in all a very good stop, and definitely heading back next time in town

Craft pride
Visited on a Tuesday evening. Sat at the bar inside.

V - Bright and open inside. A nice outdoor space with a pizza food truck (more later on that). Also a "to-go" store connected to the bar. Plenty of beer lovers and talk about beer without getting to geeked out. 4.25

Q - Clean and proper glassware. Quite a number of taps. Curious how long some of these beers last on tap (maybe too long). 4

Ser - Josh, behind the bar, was great. Flexible and helpful. Very knowledgeable. Ready to help newbie or master. Not a big fan of a bar holding my credit card when I want to run a tab, but I guess those are the realities when you live in a college town. 4.25

Sel - All Texas all the time on tap. I like that. No Jester King on tap which was a disappointment. But a wide variety something for everybody. Every style. Plus plenty of bottles to choose from if nothing on tap meets your needs. 4.5

F - A great "Detroit" style pizza food truck outside. A narrow but excellent selection. 4

I've looked through the reviews and there's not much else to say, just read back. It's right down the street from Banger's, which is one of my favorite places, so that's a bonus, especially as they don't serve food. It's all Texas beers, which is great if you're from out of state; and that also means they've got stuff that you won't find elsewhere. I also have to back up the positives for the service - I'm a brewer and so I know what I'm talking about, and the bartenders here are right on track with me. But they're also ahead of me in that they've really got their stuff down - ask me "Oh what's like so and so beer?" and I'll have to think about it, but they're right on it, bam bam bam! And I greatly appreciate that they're honest. That's a little bit of a Texas thing, they're straight-shooters and they'll right out tell you who's beer is better than who's. So, although I'm not particularly comfortable with their indoor space, I love it as a follow up to Banger's - mostly because they don't open until 4pm on weekdays and 1pm on Saturday and Sunday.

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.
