Twin Liquors is a chain store, frequently adding locations in strip malls and other shopping plazas. They are all over the Austin area. This particular location is in North Austin, right at the corner of Metric and Parmer.

Twin Liquors specializes in wines and hard liquors, but they also stock a pretty interesting and quirky selection of beers. They had a fully stocked coldbox along the back wall of the store. This store probably had around 80+ different foreign imports. Interestingly enough, I saw beers here that I have never seen anywhere else, period. They had La Fin Du Monde. They had some kind of a Salvadoran beer. They had German and Czeck beers, Mexican beers, Belgians, numerous other imports, and plenty of the domestic macros. Their only weakness seemed to be that they didn't stock much in the way of domestic microbrews. I saw a few, including the hard to find Abita Bock, but they were clearly focusing on foreign imports over the domestic micros.

The store was easy to find. Parking was plentiful. The store was clean, but crowded. The service was really good. The clerk was willing to check in the back for anything that was out of stock in the coldbox. Pricing was about average for the area. The only drawback was the checkout, where they tried to charge me for a six-pack when I was only buying a single. After a prompt refund, I was on my way.

I'll have to check out the other locations. This store really impressed me. I'll have to go again to pick up a few of the more interesting imports. Not bad, not bad at all. If you're visiting and your hotel is near a Twin Liquors, I'd recommend it. If you live here and have one in your neighborhood, check it out, it might surprise you.
