SXSW Post: New Bars for Hopping

Austin's food and drink scene is every changing.  With the rise of microbreweries and the craft cocktail movement booming in Austin, be glad that there are new bars popping up to quench your thirst.  I haven't been to all these bars so I can't attest to their menus.  These new bars were opened in the last 12 months.  Happy SXSW New Bar Hopping!

  3. There are two on here that I HAVE visited before! I am lame.

  4. @HWelch, There haven't been any new bars on Rainey Street opened in the last 12 months.

  5. Great list! Thanks for putting in the phone numbers too. i can't wait to try Drink Well!

  6. There are several on this list I hadn't even heard of. Way to ferret out the new spots for us to try! Also, this reminds me that I need to go back to Hopfield's and have a meal...

  7. Great list! Can't wait to try some of these out.

  8. 400 Rabbits is on my list to try - good job, Jennie!

  9. Great list! I've heard SO much about Easy Tiger and Hopfields...I guess I need to get out there!

  10. My drinking buddies live in SA, so I'll have to refer to this list when they come up to visit!

  11. Easy Tiger is on my list (although more for the bakery than booze :P )

  12. Okay, I'm just going to ask it. Which one is the best for the aging hipsters, please? (I need to find my peeps!)
