This is the closest Iíve come to a true English pub in the United States. Think Dragonmead, but even more English. Loads of guest taps and about four house-brewed beers at the time of my visit. Cozy, rustic, laid-back atmosphere. No TV to be found. Big wooden tables and an area outside with picnic tables that served as the perfect place for a rb/ba bottle share that was going on during our visit. If I lived in Austin, this would be my regular haunt.

(Visited 08/2012): Draught House is located in the North Loop area of Austin on Medical Parkway. The street name and physical location may both lead you to believe you are in the wrong place but it is there. They have a somewhat small lot that was packed on my visit, but there is street parking in the surrounding neighborhood too.

They have a patio outside. The interior is cozy and dark with a worn-in feel. The bar is directly in the rear. There are some tables in the rest of the space. A line forms at the center of the bar as there is no table service. Collection of tap handles and various breweriana displayed.

The place lives up to their name, with around 75 draught options from breweries like Deep Ellum, Real Ale, (512), Thirsty Planet, Deschutes, Lazy Magnolia, Rahr, Austin Beerworks, Hops & Grain and St. Arnold. Several bottled options too.

Service on a relatively busy weekday evening at the bar was good. I was served by different bartenders and they were all on their game.

I did not have any food on this visit.

All in all this is definitely a spot worth seeking out for a solid selection, especially for Texas brews.

Stopped in during a quick visit in Austin. An old dark wooden looking building with a bit of outside seating and a few TVs. Definitely been around for a bit. Bartender was solid during my visit. Selection was really nice with some great taps as well as their own beers. Didnít sample any food on my visit. Prices were very affordable and one of the better places in Austin.

Great selection, good prices. A beer only place w/ some out door seating and a fairly young crowd. The bartenders werenít that knowledgeable or friendly but service was sufficient. Selection was good with some international and a lot of SW US brews.

Fantastic beer joint in austin. Staff can be a bit surely at times, but thatís part of the charm, isnít it? Always a great selection on tap, plus the house brews are pretty good too. Havenít sampled any of the food options.

Iíve been here a dozen times and havenít rated this yet-whatís happening to me. Neighborhood joint with dozens of guest taps and several of their own beers. Cozy inside with seating outside (bring your own chair). Food is OK but nothing special-this is just a damn good beer bar and a jewel in Austin.

A stop during RBWG 2012. A nice old bar feel inside with a nice sized patio that you can either sit down at tables or stand up. A great list of beer on tap. A nice stop. Iíd visit again if in the area.

I went on a Tuesday which had 2 dollar brews... amazing! Especially with this selection. Simply incredible! Nice outdoor seating with heaters even in the winter. But very very crowded and therefore people behind the counter didnít have time for you.

Really nice selection compared to other places in Ausitn. The service is a bit more spotty. Regulars definitely get more friendly service than new faces. Also the dart boards are located right next to the patio entrance making for a very dangerous situation when mixed with beer. Overall a nice place, but not as welcoming as other places.

Hands down my favorite place to get a beer in Austin. They have one of the best selections in town, and with a much better atmosphere than you find at other places in town. It seems that this is where the real beer drinkers go to drink (or work, for that matter). I always said, "all the beer, none of the ítude". The service is much friendlier than the Gingerman, and about 6000% more knowledgeable than the average staff at Flying Saucer. The only thing you have to get used to is the line to get a beer, which is much more democratic than most bars, but intimidating at first (remember that the line moves fast!). Beer selection is solid, especially for Texas where it is hard to get certain delights. They have a great draught selection, including several of their own (none of which ever disappoint, but also which arenít likely to blow your mind). Prices are totally reasonable, and they often have nightly specials. If you are really smart, bring your lawn chair and park it outside next to your car, dog by your side and beer in hand. Thatís the good life.
