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.

cool place once i found it. relaxed atmosphere. very relaxed. they are not running around behind the bar making sure everyone is getting served. wait in line and damnit they will get to you, so relax and strike up a conversation with a stranger or glare around in paranoid distrust like i did. nice selection and a few housebrews to chhose from too.

One of my favorite places to hang out and have a beer in Austin. The ambiance is very relaxed. The quality of the beers can vary but they are often quite tasty. I see a lot of complaints about the unfriendly staff, but I think they are great.

I went there on a Thursday night when their house beers were on sale. The parking lot was full of cars and people were tailgating in the lot with folding chairs, occasionally going inside for refills. Decent selection of tap imports and micros, but they only had 4 of their house beers on tap. Nice ambiance and a cool place to relax and enjoy a few beers.

Great neighborhood pub but you should visit this if in town. GREAT beer selection including several beers brewed by Josh. He is very experimantal with styles and additives. From German styles to Belgians to American and New Zealand, you will find something interesting. Want microbrews? How about over 70 taps?!? You can find Guinness to Great Divide Oak Aged Yeti to Live Oak Hefe Weizen. Plenty of local beers to support. The food incudes small pizzas, nachos, lite fare. Free brats on Saturdays though with a beer purchase. Nice outdoor seating (or bring a lawn chair) or you can hang out inside where you will think you are in a European pub. Free wi-fi.

Has the look and feel inside of the Horse Brass in Portland. The crowd is part college kids and part college dropouts. Beer served in shakers or mugs. Nice selection of taps, I was really impressed with the selection, and the house beers were inventive and creative, even if they werenít the best thing in the world. Lots of old tables with collections of carved graffiti. A good place to go for a good, dark pub feel.

Great pub atmosphere- loud and friendly. food not to write home about. Lots of taps and about six house beers. Both house beers I had were failry decent - seemed to have a "house taste" but not in a bad way. Will visit again.
