I went to whip in today solely because I had never been and I keep hearing about it!

The atmosphere was nice, the light was a little dim for my liking but after I saw some aged beer on one of the shelves I assumed it was for their sake.

The quality was great I could find alot of things there that most of the stores in my area won't carry and though specs has a greater selection for the most part whip in has more of the limited releases, oh an they also have taps, 60 taps and do growler fills which puts them above specs in my book.

The service was pretty good except the guy I who was helping me kept saying everything was "money" he was a cool guy but the repeated use of that term kept making me want to tell him to shut up.

I didn't eat any food but the value was great, I picked up done awesome vintage brews at a good price and I'm more than happy about it! I'll definitely be coming back

Great food! Funky little space, but they make the most of it. Great selection of brews and prices are pretty good too. Worth checking out!

The good:
House beers are good, endless selections of wine to-go, lots of taps, great hard to find kegs at times, good bottles- to-go list, the food has been amazing consistently.

The bad:
The service has been sub-par every time I've been here. Just seems like most of the servers have a care-free, "I'll get to you when I feel like it" type of approach. Not rude, but not attentive. Lots of hipsters. Bottles to-go are generally more pricey here than other stores. Growler fills have been pricey in the past as well, although haven't filled a growler in a while so that may have changed.

Great place with a great beer selection, the only thing I can't stand about coming here is that god awful smell outside. WTF it seriously smells like death took a shit outback, that smell might be from all the damn dirty hippies and hipsters but its hard to tell. But inside is nice

Visited this place when I was on a business trip just this September. I thought the place was very laid back and had some solid beers on tap, as well as a decent variety.
The bartenders/pourers were informative of all the beers, especially the ones brewed there. Met some
decent people to talk to and thoroughly enjoyed myself. Had one of their beers a Shiva Stout done with Dates or figs that were soaked in Bourbon, and the beer was excellent.
I also over heard people talking about the food served here, and all were complimentary comments.
I would recommend this place to anyone wanting a decent craft beer.
