AUSTIN | Craft Pride is a great bar on Rainey Street that offers exclusively Texas beers across its 54 taps and 2 firkins (cask kegs). Almost every style of beer imaginable is on the taps, and there are lots of interesting seasonal and one-off brews for those looking for something a bit different. If there’s nothing on the taps that tickles your fancy, of if you’re looking for something rare that you might not have seen elsewhere, the excellent bottle list, which features Texas, American, and international beers numbers over 100 and can be found in the back room which doubles as a bottle shop.
The staff here are really knowledgeable too. If you don’t know much about Texas craft beers, want to know more about Austin’s craft beer scene or any of the breweries, staff will happily and proudly tell you what you want to know. Even if you don’t know anything about beer, the staff will guide you towards the perfect beer for you. Even wine drinkers are catered to (there’s always one in the group) with six independent Texas wines on offer.
The space itself evokes a cabin atmosphere with its extensive use of wood paneling on the walls and custom built live oak bar. It’s the kind of place you can easily spend hours in, enjoying good drink and the company of friends. There’s local live music on offer in the courtyard a few nights a week, and keep an eye out on the Craft Pride social media pages to hear about special beer and meet the brewer events.
