Flew into Austin last night and was at Whip In within an hour based on BA reviews. Wow, this place is unique!

Parked in back and entered through the patio door. I'll admit that it took a moment to get my bearings, as the small interior had a cigar counter, beer for purchase to go, an area with live music, and the bar all within 10 paces or less of each other. Chalk boards above the bar display all the beer and food offerings. The menus are constantly rotating, so no printed menu or beer list are available.

After getting settled at the bar, the joy of having 72 taps became apparent. Many Belgian and craft offerings made for tough decisions when driving. The fish taco (yes, 1 big taco) was great. The staff was very friendly and helped with beer and food selection. Overall, I can't wait to go back! Good thing I'm in town all week.

UPDATE: Dropped atmosphere rating due to seeing the owner's children (and I mean young) stocking the beer coolers. Please do not do that in front of customers. Also changed to a bit pricey, as pulls on anything except pints are a bit steep. Hard to keep a reasonable spend here.

Great place with a great beer selection, the only thing I can't stand about coming here is that god awful smell outside. WTF it seriously smells like death took a shit outback, that smell might be from all the damn dirty hippies and hipsters but its hard to tell. But inside is nice

Visited this place when I was on a business trip just this September. I thought the place was very laid back and had some solid beers on tap, as well as a decent variety.
The bartenders/pourers were informative of all the beers, especially the ones brewed there. Met some
decent people to talk to and thoroughly enjoyed myself. Had one of their beers a Shiva Stout done with Dates or figs that were soaked in Bourbon, and the beer was excellent.
I also over heard people talking about the food served here, and all were complimentary comments.
I would recommend this place to anyone wanting a decent craft beer.

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.
