Best Specs Warehouse in Austin. They have a solid, well solid for Austin, beer selection with some pretty fair prices.
They also carry the most local beers I have seen in any liquor around the city. I generally don't like supporting the big commercial stores like this, but Specs has been great for distributing Texas beers all over the state.
Staff is friendly and fairly knowledgeable, have to always tell myself not everyone is a beer fanatic like me.
The best part about Specs is that they truly are your one stop shop for alcohol. Great selection on all types and even have an enormous cigar collection.
If you haven't visited this location, I suggest you make a point to.

I wasn't really sure what to put for atmosphere seeing as how this is a liquor store. This location used to be an Academy Sporting goods store, but it was bought by Spec's and transformed into a 50,000 sq ft liquor store. They have a very impressive selection of beer and their staff in the beer selection is also knowledgeable about what they sell. It is kind of out of the way for me so I don't normally buy beers from them when I'm in town, but I do like go there when I can. They have a section of specialty foods and coffee but I don't normally stop to look because I'm there for other reasons. If you're looking for a specific beer in Texas, they will probably have it.
