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.
