The two stops I made here during my trip Thanksgiving trip to Austin were clearly the beer highlight of the trip.

A couple of different people who have been to PDX mentioned that this place reminds them of the legendary Horse Brass put in PDX. There are some similarities for sure, but the Draught House is considerably smaller, and it doesn't have a kitchen or table service (but it does have a nice outdoor patio area). That being said, there's still the same sort of dark, cozy vibe you find at the Brass, and given the d├ęcor, posters and other decorations, this place has the feel and look of English pub wannabe (not unlike the brass as well). Beer selection is terrific, with something like 60 draft selections. There were a number of limited release and/or hard to find beers on tap here (BFM saison, founders breakfast stout, St. Arnolds Pumpkinator, to name just a few), plus they had several beers on cask and nitro. Service was OK, albeit a bit slow. There's a spot at the bar where you're supposed to place your beer order, and waits in line can get a bit lengthy. The two times I stopped by was during off hours (Or what passes for off hours. I get the impression there are probably very few times during the week when this place is dead.), and there was still a considerable line for a beer. That being said, the staff were friendly and pretty knowledgeable otherwise.

Shrug. This is a great place, no doubt, and is a spot I would visit any time I'm in town.

This place gets busy; middle of the week busy! Doesn't matter though; bartenders were really helpful, and the vibe is awesome!

if you're looking for a trendy beer bar, stay away. If you want a place to relax, sit on the patio or sit inside in the dark, wood filled pub and have great beer come here. this is my favorite place to have a great beer and relax. No pressure, just have a good time with friends. I hope it never changes. Places like this are a dying breed.

Must have been 40 taps, great service, $3 pints on Sunday, heavy on local brewers. Seemed to be lighter on big beers or sours but I could be wrong about that, there was so many choices. Will be back for sure.
