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.)

This is one of my favorite places to go to drink beer as well as buy hard to find beers. The Tex-Indian food is an added bonus. The staff is very knowledgable and very helpful. The beer selection on tap is amazing (they are great supporter of local breweries) and the bottled beer selection is large, with beers you canít find anywhere else. If you are in Austin, the Whip In is the place to go.

A lot of people love this place. Maybe because of the localism. When I first went here is was an actual corner store. now itís transformed in to more of a place to grab a bite, some great craft beer, catch a live band, and have some good draught beer. THe prices in the past have been on the higer side. Lately these have changed to be more reasonable. Overall worth checking out.

Stopped in here on Easter Sunday. Pretty sure this was the only place open in the entire state of Texas that day. Great service. Talked with on of their beer guys for about 20 minutes about what I was looking for and they had almost every thing I wanted. Got a bunch of Jester King, Saint Arnold, and Real Ale. Also got a Maui Brewing beer to knock out Hawaii, a Wasatch Polygamy Porter to take care of Utah, Sierra Blanca Roswell Alien Amber to knock out New Mexico and loads of other goodies. I canít compare with other places in Texas, but most of the prices were lower than they are locally around me. Overall, perfect. I canít wait to go back.

Literally whipped into here for last call while in the area. Impressive selection on tap and in the fridge. I wish the kitchen were open, because the menu looked great. Hip space that I will definitely check out again.

Stopped in during RBWG 2012. This is a crazy place! Food, taps/bar, growlers, and a bottle shop? Talk about one stop shopping!

Our bartenders were prompt and friendly and a few of them really know the beers.

A huge selection of beers including a ton of locals.

One of the great things about this place is theyíll let you sample brews before you try them and theyíll also pour half-pours so you can try many beers without spending a ton or getting hammered.

Overall, Iíd say this is a most definite stop if youíre in the Austin area. They really have about everything youíd need!
