4.63/5  rDev +8.2%

I have to say that I am a San Diego native and I had to get used to the Austin beer selection.

The best part of Whip In is their draft beers. It is comprised of a revolving list that I would have to guess has 70ish beers on tap at anytime. Bottle selection is above average for Austin, but I still shutter, since compared to my favorite spots on the west coast it doesn't quite measure up. I don't hold it against this place though, obviously its not their fault.

What is also great about this place is that they are more than a beer store. They have a solid wine selection, in addition they are an Indian restaurant (which I have yet to try.)

The primary downfall I see at Whip In is the service, I just don't get it? I have been here a dozen times, half of which I have sat down to grab a pint. Every time I need to snag the bartender. I feel like I don't exist. Once I get served, I feel the service improves, but overall it feels like less than a friendly place.

*Update* 06/18/2012

After a few great renovations and an almost entirely new staff the Whip In has skyrocketed, becoming my favorite place in Austin. Great deals on local beers every night, great live music with an incredible staff.
