Stopped by the Whip In on a Wednesday afternoon. Cute, indie-feel to the whole store, with food & beer behind the register and a seating area w/ a stage off to the side. Good wine and snack selection, too.

Very good quality store, nothing out of place and all the bottles seemed to be fresh (no dust collecting anywhere). The selection is amazing, perhaps even better than the Grape Vine Market, except for perhaps the German selection. Tons of american micro brews (Sierra Nevada, Great Divide, Dogfish Head, Real Ale, Independence, etc etc...), a larger Belgian selection than GV (lots of St. Bernardus), and (my favorite part) a cellared brews section, where they periodically release aged beer. Granted, this beer is at a higher price, but I happily snagged 3 bottles of 2004 Lost Coast Old Stock Ale.

Aside from the bottled glory, they have 16 brews on tap, including four Live Oak's and some aged beer, too (2006 Real Ale Coffee Porter). Happy hour from 4-7 gets you a $1 off per pint. Most beers were in the $4-6 range. Cashier/bartender was very friendly, and was happy to load up my beers into a crate and hold them behind the counter while I partook in a 8oz pour of Live Oak Primus Weizenbock.

Overall, a fantastic beer experience that I'll revisit many times during the coming years in Austin.
