No arguments here: USA Today published a list today of some of the best bars in America for beer lovers, and Bangerís Sausage House & Beer Garden is sitting pretty on it.

The publication had the following to say about this beloved Rainey Street spot: ďThereís no shortage of cool beer joints in Austin, Texas, but Bangerís tops the list with craft beer, great food and a massive outdoor seating space. This beer garden has a seriously impressive beer resume. With the third largest draft system in the state, Bangerís has 104 brews on draft and another 50 in cans and bottles. In addition to great beer, Bangerís offers 30 house-made sausages.Ē

In the story, writer Anne Roderique-Jones notes that drinking has become ďa sophisticated pastime,Ē with lots of natural curiosity and the desire to share as just two reasons why craft beer, in particular, has caught on so much.

Itís not hard to see why Bangerís made the cut ó for having as many beers as it does, the bar does a solid job of making sure the bartenders and waitstaff are well-educated about craft beers and can bring you out a perfect pint. Bangerís also hosts regular events like Mega Mutt Monday, Smoke Out Saturdays and special firkin tappings.

The article also featured watering holes like Bobís Bar in Columbus, Ohio, and Bay Street Biergarten in Charleston, South Carolina.
