Sunrise Mini-mart is the hidden gem of the Austin beer store scene. The selection is always excellent, and they get new releases within a day of, if not sometimes before, anyone else in the ATX. Jester King, Adelbert's, Austin Beerworks, new Lips of Faith and Stone collaboration releases...that's just the tip of the iceberg of course.
Prices are reasonable--the mark-up is a little higher than Spec's and Central Market but a dollar or two cheaper than Whip-In or Hyde Park Market. Freshness has never been an issue, as they seem to rotate through their stock on a regular basis.
The reason I don't mind paying a little extra to shop here (besides the selection) is the staff. The main guy behind the bar (Sam) looks out for his regulars, is always willing to talk shop when they're not crowded, and does a killer job at keeping Sunrise's Facebook consistently updated.
