i stopped by whip-in after driving by it many times and hearing about the selection from friends. the selection was above average. had a lot of good stuff there that i haven't seen many other places. LOT of belgian offerings, lots of oskar blues, stone, dogfish head, and a lot of beers i've never seen in the area before (though admittedly i have only been in the area 6 months).
the chick up front with the dreadlocks was really helpful and when i asked about oskar blues and ten fidy she directed me to the 'beer guy' who was very helpful and answered all my questions about their rotating stock, what was coming up, what styles they like to carry. they were very friendly and the beer guy informed me i can break up any pack in the cooler and make my own sixer. he even went to the back for me to pull out a six of magic hat that wasn't on the shelves.
i ended up getting a four pack for about $9 which is about average considering the beers that i got. they even had singles of bud and bud light which i found pretty funny, however, they were on the bottom shelf and looked like they hadn't been touched in months.
there were a few aged beers. i didn't really look too hard at them but i saw some stone imperial russian stout and some 2005 great divide yeti. they even had a print-out taped to the cellar aged section listing when some of the newer editions would be released.
the music was pretty rad as well.

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.
