I'm not much for writing long reviews, so I'll be short...

I love this place. Great selection, Good prices and awesome service (Sam is the man.)

In my opinion they have a better selection than Whip In and it's so much closer for those of us stranded up North. The only advantage whip in has IMO is the bar.

Either way I love this place.

If you want a testament to the quality of service you get here. I had talked to Sam about holding a bottle of a beer I really wanted to try when it came in. By the time he got there the bottles had already sold out, so rather than say Oh well, he brings in a vintage bottle out of his own cellar and sells it to me for the same price ^_^.

It has the best beer selection in Austin, and the service from Sam and the rest of the crew is always great. The only way we could get a better selection in Texas is by getting rid of the TABC and our antiquated laws.

I wasn't expecting much from the outside, but was blown away when I walked in. Great beer selection both warm and cold. The owner was extremely nice and friendly. I told him I was from out of town and even pulled a few reserved bottles from the back for me. There was a rep from Twisted X brewing there with samples. I would highly recommend checking this place out and will be returning the next time I'm in Austin.

I really think one of the two best places in Austin to get beer. The selection is amazing and the staff are even better.

Sunrise is about 1/3 convenience store, 2/3 bottle shop (includes beer, wine, craft sodas). Prairie Artisan, Jester King and bottles from new local breweries are here. Their selection is probably 2nd greatest in Austin after Whichcraft, but almost all of it is available cold. They had a 4-pack of Victory Kirsch Gose on the dry shelf that I wanted cold and one of their guys went to the storage cooler and found one for me. Also bought a can of WD-40 and some Atomic Fireballs.

Great selection, great quality, nice little stop.

Everytime I'm here, someone is restocking the shelves. They do a good turnover and things don't sit around. They get pretty much all the special releases. They are very helpful, too. I like to ask them for recommendations on what's new. They always seem to give me an honest assessment of what they think.

I'm actually most excited about the prices. Some things that you can get at Specs with the cash discount are a little more expensive here, but a lot of the harder-to-find stuff that they could markup quite a bit seems reasonable.

This is my go-to place.

Will blow your mind.... My new favorite gas station. Just an awesome bottle shop that you would never have known about without a recommendation from someone who lives in Austin. Really knowledgable staff and a great selection.
