Excellent bottle shop in East Austin. There's a very good selection of craft beer (and BMC beers for your non-craft friends). They receive most of the local Austin releases (limited and standards), and many limited releases from craft brewers from across the US. There are also some Italian, German, Belgian, and New Zealand imports (probably some other countries, too) . The prices are very good for a convenience store / bottle shop. They can't compete prices with the giant stores (Specs, HEB), but the prices are very close. If you're looking for a new limited beer in East Austin, this is probably the best source you will find.

Beyond the beer, there is a nice selection of wine and ciders. They carry many local products such as kombucha tea, h'ordeuvres, local coffee, sweets and treats, and ice cream. It's a great Austin convenience store. They support and sell a lot of local products. The employees of the store are extremely friendly.

This store is a definite visit if you find yourself in the east side of Austin.

East 1st Grocery is a surprise to any beer lover. The moment you enter the store you will realize that this is more than just a Convenience Store but a Beer mecca. You will experience a fantastic bottle selection. Sam who owns the store always proves to help educate me in my bottle selections and I love the variety, selection and volume this store possesses. If you have any aptitude for Beer do yourself a favor and visit this store in ATX.
