Nice and relaxed bar at the south end of Rainey party street. Nice patio to enjoy the Texan beers the offer. The wifi reception is not that good outside. 52 beers on tap and 2 on cask. All Texan. Affordable prices and great stuff available. No food. Recommendable.
Visited 27.4.16. A corner bar located in a small house in a cool bar-restaurant district. Only local beer. More expensive than other bars in town. Service was so-so and so were the beers we ordered. There’s a bottle shop adjacent to the bar that has a good selection, but the bar felt a bit too designed and not as welcoming as other places in the city.
An awesome bar for scooping local beers. It was rather quiet when I visited on a Thursday night in late May, but that was fine by me. This place has a ton of taps and they are all dedicated to TX beers, covering a range of diverse styles. They also offer half pours, which was great. The service was friendly. Prices fair. This was one of my favourite bars in Austin. I would return here in a heartbeat. Awesome bar.
Visited later in the evening on a Wednesday. Looks like a small house with a small front patio as you walk up, with a smaller room with a bar as you enter. Draft selection is 55 beers, mostly focused on local Austin beers. This place really opens up as you walk around the corner of the bar. There is a small bottle shop for beers on site or to go (Really good selection, though small and expensive), and past the beer store a big beer garden that has a food truck. The design of the beer garden has several levels, and is nicely designed. Chill place. Another solid Austin spot.
76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
Huge space with lots of different areas. You can get lost.
Service is lacking. You have to que up in one place. Dirty dishes and glasses are abound and not picked up often.
Cool little bottle shop that you can drink there or take to go.
This is the place in town to get rare Texas ticks. Almost all drafts are Texas centric. However, the only way to look at the list is by looking at a board behind the ball. Everything is done in chalk so it makes it really hard to read. I missed a couple beers I would have ordered had I’d known they were there.
Overall, there are some flaws but this is a good place to hang out.
This place specializes in Texas draft beers. The help is kind of hit or miss. One bartender really knew his brews while another guy clearly didn’t. But you really can’t go wrong here, plenty of outside seating out front and a covered in area with a food truck outback. (Austin really loves their food trucks) Didn’t get anything from the food truck but the pizza looked decent. They also have a pretty decent amount of beer to go. Well worth a look for some Texas treats.
This is a really cool place located on Rainey St. The interior feels like a cabin in the middle of the woods, and smells like one, too. They have an attached bottle shop, the happened to be closed. Patio seating is also present. Very comfortable. 40 beers from Texas on tap, which is pretty hard to pull off. The bartender was knowledgeable and friendly, and the prices were reasonable. I don’t think they serve food.
