We shot several episodes of Locapour at Craft Pride. The first is live on the site now at http://locapour.tv/austin/512ipa

Craft Pride is everything you would want a craft beer bar to be and more. The owners, JT & Brandy Egli are beyond passionate about the beer and have created the most welcoming atmosphere I have ever experienced.

As JT told me "I hate beer snobs!" There's a difference between being a fan, enthusiast or even a craft beer zealot and being a snob. JT, Brandy and the staff at Craft Pride greet every customer with a big smile and see their role as to help you enjoy beer.

If you are coming to Austin, Craft Pride must be on your list of places to visit. They have the most complete menu of Texas brewed craft beers I have seen. In fact, their tap wall is exclusively Texas craft beer which means you will really get to experience super fresh local craft beer.

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.

Texas has some great breweries and this place always has their great seasonal and special brews. Great little store in the back. Via 313 trailer in the back is fantastic. Get the cadillac. They should really consider opening one up in Denver and Portland.

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.
