Odd place. Is it an Indian restaurant? A bar ? A bottle shop? All apparently, but for me this seems to result in compromises on all. To be honest I didnít try the food, but the bar looks shabby and the amount of storage for beers is fairly limited. Some nice beers are available and New ones are clearly marked as such, which is nice, but from the top rated Austin beer shop I expected quite a bit more. Professional but not very personal service. I left with good beers but also a bit disappointed, especially when I then found almost all of them at a lower price at Central Market. They seem to have their heart at the right place, but the place needs work.

Visited October 2011.
Stopped in early in the morning for an eye opener. Actually it was about noon, so not quite as depressing. Also stopped back in later that same night to grab a beer and listen to some live music. This is a bottle shop that has a pretty large selection with some neat stuff. Tons of Texas-made beer that I had never heard of on tap in addition to some of the bigger name stuff. They do samples which helps if you have no idea what half the stuff on tap is. Service was good and helpful. The place smelled strongly of Indian spices which isnít bad per se but if youíre not into that it could be bothersome. The patio in the back is the way to go if itís open but the bar is nice as well. I need to get back now that theyíre brewing (supposedly).

Neat place I stopped in here in Austin. Looks like crap from the outside, but a cool eclectic feel on the inside. Indian type food (though, not what you normally think) and huge tap list (lots of Texas beers). Bottle selection is decent but nothing to call home about. Grabbed my first Jester King brew here and sat with some food and had a good time. Music seems like every night, too (I only came for lunch time). Highly recommended if you are in the area.

A beer store/beer bar/Indian restaurant that is extremely unique. They have a nice outdoor seating area and inside is a bit dark but even have a stage for music. Bartender was extremely friendly and quite knowledgeable. Tons of taps and about 4-5 house beers. Then you have the store which has a ton of bottles as well. Food was great and prices were good as well! Should this place be listed as a brewery? Bar? Beer store? I donít know, but all I know is it is an absolute must hit!

They have great selection on tap and in the store. A knowledgeable staff , can help you make up your mind. Keep an eye out for their rare and/or aged beer on tap.

Visited here a few weeks ago. Busy and tight parking. Nice bar with some decent on-premises brews. Nice people behind the bar. Great bottle selection. Didnít eat. Worth a visit when in Austin.

Stopped in on my way to San Antonio - very cool spot. Cross between convenience store, bar, and brew pub. Service was a bit lacking - the bartender didnít know what I was asking for when it was clearly on their board. Decent selection of bottles in the coolers. I didnít eat so canít comment on the food.

Stopped in looking for something specific but they were sold out of it. Hard to get to, on the I-35 outer road. Tight aisle with coolers but good selection. Even better because of the bar. Didnít drink anything or eat. Great atmosphere inside. Really need to make a return visit to get the full experience.

Heaven for the aspiring beer geek in me.
I came in looking for two cask beers they had on tap. Unfortunately, they had emptied them the night before. But they had plenty of other choices, including two casks from Jester King. 70 taps, including 41 local beers. And hundreds of bottles to either drink there or take home.
It was Sunday afternoon so we ended up with the manager as our bartender. Very helpful and informative, great service.
Whip In is a grocery store/bar with a small amount of indoor seating and a large patio. It is definitely an Austin place.
Close to a perfect score as far as Iím concerned, but I would have loved to have the option of 5 oz tasters. (Though they kept the 1 oz samplers coming all afternoon long, so itís hard to complain.)
