Was in town for ACL, not to mention my sister in law and her husband have lived in Austin for five years; I demanded they take me to the Whip-In for some beers. It's right off the highway and easily accesible.
One of the workers was a very friendly guy who was quick to ask if we needed help. I let him know that I found this place on BeerAdvocate.com where he mentioned his affinity for the Alstrom Brothers and how it helps his business. He suggested a Boulevard 12-pack sampler and I added a sixer of Dale's (unavailable in Ohio).
They have a nice selection of beer and their coolers are packed full of goodies. In Ohio, cooler space is a bit smaller most likely due to climate and it was nice to see all the cold suds in the oppresive heat.
Some of the beers are a tad pricey but nothing outrageous. The same worker brought up the 2004 election while I was checking out and blamed Ohio for the results; I didn't have the heart to tell him whom I voted for. A great beer store and a beer geeks paradise; justanother reason why Austin is such a great town.
