I love going to Sunrise, when I'm in the area. From the outside it looks like your typical gas station. Don't let that fool you!

Inside it has one of the best selections in the city. I also really like that they are so good about posting new releases on Twitter. Unfortunately, anything even resembling a limited release seems to result in distribution truck chasing and hoarding. So, it's nice when some place gives you a heads up and you can swing by and pick up what you want.

They are a little pricier than your big stores like HEB, Central Market and Specs, but it is a convenience store and I don't mind paying a little more to support the local guy.

Sam is also great to talk beer with, he's quick to help, he's quick to let you know if anything new has come in that day. I haven't been going there long enough, but I have multiple friends he's saved beers for or brought some out of his own stash for them.

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.

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

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.
