Whip In has a great selection of beers. Lots of micros, lots of imports. If you're just passing through Austin on the interstate and don't want to make a side-trip for beer, then Whip In is the place to go.

I have three warnings, though. First, the store is quite cluttered, and the organization of the beer is a little confused. Last time I was in there, I didn't quite figure out how the beer fridges were organized. There were also stacks of beer on the floor, where I found some micros that weren't in any of the coolers. Lesson: check ALL the fridges and floor stacks.

Second, I think the staff may be hit-or-miss. After TXHops found some SATB there, I went in to check if they had any more. The two guys at the cash weren't very friendly when I asked about it. (I've heard rumors that SATB is illegal in Texas... maybe they thought I was ATF!). Lesson: leave navy windbreaker with big yellow letters in the car.

Third (and most serious), they stock past-date beer. I bought some Pyramid Coastline that turned out to be a year past its "best by" date. And I picked up some Tommyknocker St. Nick's Porter, which the brewery claimed had been discontinued two years prior. Of course, sometimes this can work to your advantage... they had 2002 Sisyphus left over long after everybody else was out. Lesson: check before you buy.

In spite of these warnings, however, Whip In is a good little store, in a convenient location for out-of-towners, with a very good selection. Recommended.
