This is one of my favorite beer stores in Dallas ! The employees are very helpful and kind. The owner ( I think his name is Rick) is a true gem to the beer industry and will go out of his way to find what your looking for ! I was lucky enough to find some 512 double pecan porter among other limited beers!
I also buy kegs here from time to time and they always arrive quickly and are very fresh ! If you follow them on Facebook they always post their new releases day of and if you check in on foursquare you get a discount.
One of the best beer stores around...don't waste your time at Specs or Centenial

I visited this place on my way home from work and was unfortunatley dissapointed. They did have a good selection but not much better than Centennial or Goody Goody liquor. You have to walk into a cold refrigerator to check out the beer selection and most of the beers do not have prices on them. All of the beers they had I have seen at the forementioned liquor stores for a couple bucks cheaper. If you don't have a car and are in walking distance then this is a good place to go but if you have a car just go down the road to Centennial.

This place was a great find. I was fortunate to speak to the manager of this store and he was a true craft beer advocate. I mentioned I was on a business trip looking for awesome local Texas craft beer. He dung into his private stash and offered some really great beers. I'm definitely looking forward to tasting these treasures. Deep Ellum Dream Crusher IIPA and Saint Arnold Endevour.
They had a great selection of beer styles and the staff was educated in their selections.
I stopped at many Richardson, TX liquor stores and this was by far the top on my list. I look forward to visiting again in the near future.

It is a bit out of my way, but this is looking like it is going to be my favorite beer store in the Metroplex. I live in Fort worth and work in Dallas and Collin counties, but when I get the chance, I head to Lone Star Beverages. Best service in the area, and reasonably priced too.
It was a long shot, but just last week, after searching for 1-2 months for a bottle of Burton Baton, to no avail, I wander into Lone Star. After talking for a little while, I'm asked if I am looking for anything in particular. I mention Burton, expecting to hear a "yeah, right....". Instead, I end up walking out with 4 bottles. Made my day.

I think Lone Star Beverages is definitely a store to watch over if you are in the area. The owner was very passionate about beer and hopes to expand and bring growlers to Dallas in an effort to keep up with the growing Texas beer scene.
I think Lone Star Beverages had the best selection of Texas beer I've seen. That was definitely a big reason I wanted to visit since I'm not in Texas often and the beers here rarely leave the state. And the owner was a very helpful guy (he's also on BA). He sold me a bottle of Pumpkinator, which had been sold out for months. He additionally mentioned he will hold bottles if you ask.
In all, this store is recommended because I think it's the best beer store for providing local beers and the owner was a very generous and helpful guy. In addition, the store might be even bigger and better in the not too distant future.

Was recommended as one of the go-to places around Dallas to look for craft brews.
Had more of a corner store feel than I had imagined, but the selection was pretty nice. Strangely there were so many beers on the shelves but not many of each. Still, great selection. Found a couple brews I couldn't find anywhere else.
The manager/owner was very friendly and knowledgeable, we chatted about beer for quite some time before I left. He was also very helpful in suggesting other places to go on our beer hunt, and exchanged contact info with us for future use.
I will definitely stop by when I am in town again.
They also offer discounts for mentioning BA, and foursquare check-ins and following on facebook/twitter.

Have been looking for a place with an exceptional beer selection, and this wasn't it. This place was pretty much average. I'll give them this, their beer cooler is probably the coldest spot in DFW. I didn't see any beers I couldn't pick up at Market Street or Central Market. Actually they had less. Not a bad place if your looking for more than your corner gas station or local super market sells, but not by much. They did have a Sunner Kolsch that I had not seen before, so picked that up. Rest of the selection was your usual suspects of Stone, Avery, Chimay, etc...

Stopped by here on a recent trip through Dallas after it was recommended by a fellow BA member. Very nice store, great atmosphere, and friendly staff. They had some beer on the shelves but the best stuff was in the beer cave (which felt awesome after being in the 110 degree heat). I must say I was stunned by all of the good stuff in the beer cave. I was able to find Stone RIS and Jester King Drinkin in the Sunbelt which made my day. They also have a section of glassware which is any 2 glasses for $6. This will be my go-to place for sure on my next trip to Dallas!

I was really excited to hit this place after all the wonderful reviews...but I found it really lacking in selection. They had a few hard to finds, but mostly the selection was pretty bland. The walk in fridge had very few items with prices on them. One of the people that worked there said they didn't price them because they rotated stock so often, but that makes no sense. Just throw a sticker price on your beer. Items were reasonably priced, which was another reason to PRICE YOUR BEER.
I'm not sure what everyone saw in this establishment...maybe they just haven't been to that many places or I'm just too picky. Next time I'm in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, I'll skip this place.

I travel almost 200 miles about 3 times a year to stock up from this place. There's nothing like it where I live, It's not a big place but it's the best kept secret in North Texas. The beer's a rightly segregated, the none specialty have their own fridge, but the real good stuff are kept in a walking fridge and thus embracing you from three glorious walls of malted hops goodness, the first time in i pinched myself cause i though i was in a dream. I was like a kid in a candy store, didn't know where to start, I looked at my basket and wondered if it was big enough, it wasn't . I was so surprise that a small place like this has such a "VIP" type of selection of beers, is like the "dondy" of liquor stores, the staff is the best i've ever come across, they really know about brews and take alot of pride in it. They asked me if i wanted something in particular that they didnt have, they would get it for me, they gave me their card which has the message "if we don't carry it, we'll get it" . This place is top quality and king above the rest. Please check them out next time you're in the Dallas Area.
