    You can hear live music every night and devour some great Indian fusion food. A big bonus to the Whip In is your ability to enjoy your favorite beer even if it isn't on draft -- you can drink the bottle in-house for only $1 more. Freedom!

    Draught House has been brewing and pouring in Austin for years, and for craft beer purists, it’s the best place for beer in town. The building looks like a transplanted English pub with a great big outdoor patio.

    If you want to drink a good beer and have some fun instead, then head over to Brew Exchange where the beer menu is fluctuating like your 401K. The prices of beers go up and down depending on their popularity that evening.

    If your friends aren’t into the good stuff, you could either make new friends, or take them on White Trash Wednesdays, when all the cheap beer cans are only $1.

    Located along a strip of vintage stores and boutiques, Workhouse keeps a heavily local, steadily rotating tap list. It makes for a fine refuge if your lady managed to rope you into some afternoon antiquing.

    They have more than 30 beers on tap to wash down house-made sausages and fresh baked pretzels -- oh, and don’t forget their homemade beer cheese (if you've had it, then you definitely haven't forgotten).

    Texans are known for their hospitality and unwavering support of one another (except when it comes to politics) -- which is why Craft Pride has more than 50 taps dedicated solely to the beers brewed in the Lone Star State.

    Replicating New York’s popular Pony Bar in Texas, Chicago House is doing their part to spread the craft beer love around Austin. You won’t find any price gouging here -- all beers are $5 (except during happy hour when everything is $4).

    Now that Spring is here, it's time to take advantage. With a large beer garden, plenty of seating, and live entertainment almost every day, Banger's would be a great bar even without its standout selection of more than 100 beers on tap.
