Visited 27.4.2016, early afternoon. Probably our favourite place in Austin. Looks like a pub - all dark and woody, with beer signs on the wall. Quiet, a neighbourhoody vibe, garden for those who like to sit outside and a brilliant selection on tap - plenty of local brews and a good curation all in all. Knowledgeable and friendly staff, too, that referred us to local shops. What more can you ask for?

Strong contender for the best beer bar in Austin. Draught House has it all: an authentic old Austin vibe with a pub inside and bier garten outside, a massive and constantly updated selection of high quality beers on tap, a rotation of quality local food trucks, great service and excellent daily specials. Their anniversary party is also one of the best beer events in town with local and import rarities on tap. For real ale lovers there are always a few cask beers at the ready. Absolutely worth a visit or even becoming a regular.

The Draught House is fantastic. The beer selection is broad and deep; that their house-brewed beer is exceptional is icing on the cake. This past fall Josh brewed a run of Saissons that rivaled the belgian Saissons which is no small feat! The crowd is great and is there for the serious business of hanging out with their friends and drinking great beer, rather than trying to be part of a "scene". The bartenders know their beer forwards and backwards, and while they can be a bit gruff when busy, they are all great to talk to when the rush ends. Great beer garden and rotating food trucks complete the good times. Do not expect to win a tee shirt for drinking x amount of beer or some kind of goofy beer passport. Your reward is getting great beer for a fair price with great people.

Nice old-house pub-style bar with a very extensive tap list with lots of Austin local beer. Excellent service and they offer cheese pairings and other bar food. Also fairly priced, and even when it gets pricey it is still worth it.

The best (and oldest) pure craft beer bar in Austin. The half-dozen house brewed beers are always very good and often excellent. Almost 80 taps provide a wide variety of styles from a wide variety of brewers. There is one TV which (thankfully) is always muted and usually off, and no muzak. Two dart boards. There’s dark wood inside and a large beer garden outside. Bar service only, no waitstaff. You can wait awhile to get a beer when it is busy. No food, but a random food truck shows up at 5 pm every day. Free sausages at 5 pm on Saturdays. Cash is preferred, but they do take cards. Plenty of parking in lots nearby. This is a perfect place to have a really good beer and a really good conversation.

Great combination of an German beer garden outside and an English pub inside with a huge digital menu with an excellent and extensive selection. Highly enjoyable unpretentious atmosphere. What more could you ask for.

Though ownership has changed, this is a long standing pub that has served a decent selection of beers for years. If you haven’t carved your name in the table yet you’re likely too late as what’s there already is deep enough to loose a pint glass in. Haven’t done a very good job of keeping up with the beers that are brewed there. While I wasn’t overly impressed with what I’ve had, wasn’t bad either. Gets mighty crowded, but as mentioned the parking lot holds the run off & is provides an atmosphere of its own. - Knowing Texas as I do and having been to spots in both Dalliz and Housting, DH should really be #1 or #2 in state. Mow losing track of how many RB members I have met there. Walt = god tier

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.

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 didn’t have time for you.
