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.

While I haven't tried the house made beers here, the food is quite good and tastes very fresh. The tap selection is very good with new stuff constantly coming through here, and the bottle selection is very good as well. They allow you to break up 6-packs here so you can make your own packs out of anything they've got in the store, which is great for people like me that love to sample everything. Funky little place in an old convenience store setting that is most definitely worth a visit.
