Review from 2004: I donít know if they were having an off week or something, but the selection of beer in this WINE store was pitiful. The shelves seemed like they were stocked to their fullest so I think that they had the usual selection they always have. There were few beers stocked that I could not find at almost every other store in the area and at the same price or lower. They did have Dogfish Head 120 Minute, which is a plus, but I could have gotten that at a couple other stores in the area. Central Market seems to have the market cornered in Austin for beer and if they donít have it, Whip-In should. But if you want to save yourself some time and are not looking for a wine, then this store should be the absolute last stop for beer.

An interesting little store, like a miniture Specs almost .. they have cigars, wine and your typical Austin hippy health food, oh and beer .. . more six packs than bombers or 750ís but why they are cool.. singles! . you can break sixers here, but i did end up buying a few past prime bottles, but i filled two cases so... a nice place to buy beer if you canít get to specs or you ant to buy a bunch of singles!

Itís closed, but Iíll say it and Central Market were the best places until Specs arrived. It was like a smaller Specs, with nearly the best selection in town. Whole Foods and Whip In also offered some competition, but WF is more fancy and Whip In less. They had decent selection of Texas, US micros, and imports. Decent prices.
Besides beer they often had free wine samples, a nicely decorated store, deli section.

Prices are not always as good as Specs, but a better large bottle collection, particularly when it comes to Belgian. Beer is organized in a more compact manner than anywhere else, which means you can shop while just turning around. If you want to feel surrounded by beer this is the place ot go.

Heard about this place through reviews; thought I would check it out. Although they have a very large selection of wines and cheeses (Grapevine...duh) the beer selection was way above par. Directly to the left of the entrance was a double sided aisle of beers, turns the corner, and continues on the back side. Enormous selection of local brews as well as imports. They allow you to break up 6 packs and the service was quite knowledgeable about different styles. Left with 2 sixers and a bomber for about $30 - canít complain. Great place to stop by if youíre in town.

Grapevine was a fun place to buy beer. A year ago they got all the new beer releases just as quickly as any other beer stores in town, along with a fine selection of all the rest of the beers available in this town. Their food was always exceptional, and their wine and liquor selections probably unparalleled in Austin. However, in the past half a year or so the beer availability really went downhill - James, the beer guy, left a few months ago due to heavy-handed management by Majestic. And now the store is closing. Itís unfortunate, really, that they went under, because it was always a fun place to stop by.

The Best place to buy beer in Austin, no doubt. They always have the latest beers out in front of the beer department so you can look over what the new stock is and load up. But donít, they usually have what you want in the fridge so get it out of the fridge.
GrapeVineJames usually posts the new stuff he gets in in the southwest forum. Iíve met him once -- heís a great guy. They have pretty much every good beer that is available in Austin. Sometimes it pays to look at other stores for beers that get sold out. Other BAís know about Grapevine market and the good stuff can go fast.
They also have an excellent deli department that you can get a great sandwich and eat it on premises.
The staff is helpful and friendly. They will usually ask you if you need help but wonít be in your face if you just want to browse. Go there and say hi to me -- Iíll probably be there.

Stopped here on our way out of town. The selection was good as we were looking for local TX beers and stuff we canít get in AZ. We came here as the ratings stated we could get a lot in singles which we did. When we had questions, the staff was helpful and friendly. Would definitely stop here again if we were ever back in Austin. They also had an area were you could get a sandwich and a glass of wine. We didnít have time to eat but the food looked and smelled really good.

Liquor store with a nice selection of beer. Not the largest but there are some solid out of state micros and a good selection of local Texas beers. Picked up some Fullerís Vintage 2007 also. Thereís definitely something here for everybody.
