A great place, great selection, great house brews. (My favorite is the Vanilla Cream Porter.) Very laid back atmosphere, very comfortable place to hang out.

I visited Draught House with a friend of mine who is an Austin resident during my last visit to Austin on a Tuesday night. I really enjoyed it it doesnít have the more cosmopolitan feel of the Gingerman downtown, but it does have a wide selection, a local feel, and provides a very pleasant experience.
Selection is wide, and thereís a number of locally brewed beers. The barís a bit strange in that you seem to order from one spot at the beer and a long line forms in front of it which is more orderly and more fair than the normal bar mob scene (waving money at the bartender and trying to get his attention).
Decor is simple, but the crowd seemed earnestly interested in the bar and the selection. A good beer place that is beloved by its clientŤle. Iíd recommend.

My second home, my neighborhood cheers...I miss it dearly since law school took me across the country. In undergrad we would literally come 3-4 nights a week, they have excellent specials every night. Monday and Tuesday night are pretty low key, great time to play some darts and enjoy cheap imports on tap (2.25 Guiness and Murphyís on Monday, 2.75 almost anything on Tuesdays). Since I had to move Iíll go ahead and let everyone in on it head there straight after work on Wednesday and enjoy FREE PIZZA until around 7. Itís not like Chicagoís finest but itís completely free and there are about 60-70 delicious beers on tap to wash it down. Thursday it will be crowded, bring your chairs and enjoy the Homebrews. warning: if you arrive after 10 the special is almost over and they have likely run out of a couple of the Homebrews. Friday is a special for local beers, Independence and Live Oak I think. Saturday free brats during the afternoon, same deal as the pizza. Sunday 1.75 most domestics (which includes most Texas beers I believe). Phenomenal place, phenomenal beers, when I think of college I think of sitting on the tailgate of my roommates pickup trick with a homebrew and a good debate. Austin weather plus the parking lot atmosphere are nearly perfect. Be advised, for perfection you must wait in line though (beer lines can be 15 minutes or longer).

Been here quite a few times and really enjoy it. Nice mix of people from college kids, to loners reading books at the bar, to middle aged folks and unicycle riders as well. Dark quaint pub feel inside with a great selection of beers and usually about 5 house beers as well which usually are quite good. Some seating outside, but most tend to linger in the parking lot on truck beds, curb, just relaxing with their dogs, their pints and their pitchers. Always thought it was b/c it was packed inside, but its just the way it works here. Very relaxed unassuming atmosphere, and a great place to notch off a few ratings. Food is standard pizza,nacho,quesadilla type stuff and is ok, with huge portions, but nothing to go wild about. Some snacks behind the bar too. Never had a rude bartender in my experience and was a bit surprised to see how many have. brA must visit, if in Austin-

Iíve lived in Austin for about two years and spent most of my time at a perrienial 4th Street institution (Gingerman). What a waste. Until last week, I didnít even know this place existed. Shame on me. I went with a group of buddies and found a gem. Although Iíve never been to England, Iím motivated to book a flight on Expedia. I enjoyed and appreciated the relaxed, pub atmosphere. Great selection of imports on tap--but try house brews, unique and satisfying. The service left a little to be desired (I asked the bartender to tell me more about a particular house brew and got a wise-ass response). Otherwise, this is a place I will be frequenting more often. Also--itís nice that, although busy, you wonít find the same kinds of meandering crowds occupying space as you will downtown. Fun pub.

Lovely pub with a seemingly endless array of taps, many of which are local or at least least interesting.
Drinking out in the parking lot on a humid night is a wonderful Austin experience.
Unfortunately, the bartender slightly detracted from the overall experience through some combination of surly attitude and staggering stupidity. I ordered a Great Divide Yeti Imperial Stout, and he replied "Order something else, that one is total crap." I responded that Iíd had the Yeti many times, and that it was very good. He angrily poured a glass for me and slammed down on the bar, saying "I donít know what you had, but this isnít it. This stuff is disgusting. "
I started to reply, and he cut me off: "Iím never wrong."
How can a pub this good hire staff this ignorant?

Now THIS is how a pub should be. This place is underneath a dentistís office in a mostly residential area of Austin, but itís located in a converted old house thatís absolutely perfect for a British style pub. A lot of people complain about the crowding as it is a very small area, but itís set up to encourage mingling, most of the tables being huge and the crowds on any given night ensuring that youíll have at least a few strangers sitting at your table. Also, the staff doesnít seem to care too much if you bring your glassware outside, so no matter how crowded the interior gets thereís always the great outdoors.
The Draught House is one of the few places in town that not only brews itís own beers but has a good selection of micro/imports on tap as well. They boast about 75 taps, with about 4 being used for the house brews. The house brews rotate out, meaning thereís something new every week, and itís the only brewpub in Austin that comes close to matching the Bitter End in terms of adventurous concoctions. The only real downside to the place is the staff - the place is small enough that they donít bother with waitresses, and often there is only one person behind the bar trying to take care of an endless line of patrons looking for a refill. Still, this is an out-of-the-way must for all beer fiends visiting Austin.
