I love this place. The staff is really friendly if you treat them like humans, rather than tap monkeys. They do a great job of always having something I have never had before. They have homebrew, Josh makes some tasty beers. And the Firkin Friday promo is great for something new. The lines can get long at the bar, but its more due to indecisive customers than anything else. The patio is great, a good layout for drinking beer. I’m a big fan of the beer rail when it gets a little busier. Food comes in good portions with good value, but there not too much to choose from. I try to make it once a week, at least.

Nice little german style pub in Austin, TX. We got there at 3:30 on a Saturday thank God, because about 20 minutes later I could hardly breathe it was so crowded. The selection is great with 4 of their own beers and about 40+ other taps. Didn’t try the food, but the Draught House Double Red kept my mind off of the line, which was going out the door. The bartender does a great job, however keeping up with all of the orders. And the brewer was kind enough to even have a quick chat with us about the beers he was working on. It may be slightly less busy during the week, but still there is one bit of advice I’d like to give you...get there AS SOON AS it opens. We were lucky and got a seat at the bar.

My favorite bar in the whole wide world. The beers made on site are (dare I say) world class. Lots of taps otherwise, but stick to the homebrews you won’t be disappointed.

Had some brews here with lb4lb and fly. I love the pub atmosphere and the quaintness of the place. The scenery inside the bar- particularly the female portion of the decor- is not bad, either. Good tap selection, nice bartenders. A definite must-visit while in Austin.

Great beer selection, with awesome home brews to boot. Food is good, cheap, and filling. Nice and relaxed environment. Only bad part is the staff tends to have an attitude unless you meet their standards.

I finally made the time to stop by a place that I had yet to hear anything negative about. The place looks like European brewpub from the inside out, which made the wife in tow very happy. Fellow patrons- a good mix of beer lovers young and old. Selection- more taps than you can shake a stick at!!! Only 3 house brews on tap, but their handpull Weizen blew my hat off! A place that I will visit again when time permits, which you should do as well.

You have to love a place that brews their own beers and then has the courage to put all the benchmarks in the world up as competition. And yet, their house beer is damn good. Plus a place that doesn’t care if you drink out of their nice glasses in the parking lot. Beers? I love their Bombay IPA, and they have a Weizenbock occasionally that is world class. If you have one place to go in Austin, this is the place.

One of my favorite places. In the world. Awesome selection: a good set inventory with quite a few revolving/seasonal selections and, of course, their own very yummy house brews. The ambiance is perect. Cute girls. Friendly customers. You’ll rarely, if ever, run across a customer that doesn’t like good beer. Hard to find a bad beer on tap. Anyway, great location, too. Hang out in the parking lot, bring your dog. Free bratwurst (cooked in house brew) every Saturday at 5PM. Need I say more? Oh, and they’ll also fill customer-provided growlers with their house brews for the price of a pitcher if you want to take some home.

This is my Cheers without a doubt (except nobody knows my name). I just love the people, the location, the ambiance, all of it. I can’t stand yuppy bars and loud music and annoying Bud Light banter and so Draught House is the perfect fit for me. It is such a laid back and relaxed environment. If I want to go somewhere to meet up with friends, just relax after work, or pretty much any time at all - I go here. The bartenders are knowledgeable, the house brews rock and the location is unbeatable! Also, it has the best peanuts in the world!!!

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 doesn’t 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 there’s a number of locally brewed beers. The bar’s 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 clientèle. I’d recommend.
