Austin has developed and is still growing its craft beer scene, so there is a lot of competition. Having said that, this is one of my favorite beer bars in the city. The bar and wall of taps is one of best designs I have seen in a bar. The selection is expansive and rotates based on what the beer expert owner wants. More importantly the beer menu is fool-proof, indicating the style, brewery, and short tasting notes. Location is great, cool recently developed street with establishments running out of old houses. The backyard is very large featuring long communal tables and a music stage from which they host many events. While Draught House up north usually takes the cake, Banger's is fast becoming a major player in Austin's beer scene.

Banger's is a beautiful beer bar in the Rainey District, with an interior full of wood and classy touches that reminds me of an upscale BBQ joint (Fette Sau in Brooklyn comes to mind).
Beautiful wooden taps too- 101 of them, divided in light/wheat/hop heaven/amber&malty/dark&roasty/gluten free. About half of the drafts are Texas beers, and there is a separate menu with seasonal and limited beers (mostly bottled) such as Brewdog Bashah and three different Harviestoun editions. Also, 4 nitro taps. I had a glass of 2012 wine barrel-aged Adelbert's Dancin' Monk, and also Deschutes Black Butte XXIV.
Hipster bartenders, lively-but-not-loud atmosphere on a Friday night and good prices, around five or six dollars for small pours. I didn't try any food but they have plenty of sausages for everyone.
Oh, why not get the free tattoo they offer! I was very tempted...

The area it's in is all houses converted into bars/restaurants. Atmosphere is good definitely has that beer hall feel despite being in a house. 100 taps including several nitro and two firkins, plus numerous bottles with a giant heap of local brews available. You will have no trouble find a good beer here. Food menu is what you'd expect from a place call a sausage house. The artisinal sausages are excellent and relatively inexpensive. The staff was very knowledgeable and attentive, even suggesting stores nearby that carry the local beers. I will definitely be back..

Bangers, Bangers, oh, Bangers! It's so enticing with its over 100 beer on tap, really beer-geek service staff, amazing sausage options and a beautiful atmosphere. Every time I'm there it feels like I'm at a big picnic event. It's one of those places we take all of our out of town guests to.

We stopped by Banger's for a couple of beers while I was visiting friends in Austin.
It's in a weird but neat area. Mostly residential, but then there are several houses that have been converted into restaurants and bars. Extremely limited street parking, and the sidewalks aren't always there. We walked from downtown.
Banger's has a nice understated indoor area with several long shared picnic tables, and a large outdoor space with more tables. Very communal and comfortable. A dash of hipster/trendy without being pretentious.
Beer selection is excellent. 101 on tap, with many Texas breweries represented. Great stop for out-of-town visitors who are looking for local stuff. Both of the beers I ordered were served up in proper glassware.
Service was fine. No problems.
I didn't try any food, but my friend said his biscuit (came with the fried chicken sausage) was excellent.
