2. Craft Pride
Before or after you chow down on Indian food at G'Raj Mahal, hit this hoppin' hops palace just down the street. Here, 54 regionally-brewed beers are on tap in the first and only all-Texas-beer bar in the city. Down a pint of Austin Beer Works' Black Thunder or a Live Oak Primus. There are even several Dallas brews. Just in case you get homesick easily.
