D&Q is a great bottle shop with great service.
The place looks like a run down 7-11 but is wall to wall beer and wine in the back.
The owner is very helpful and the willingness to break any 6pack for singles is great. He knows his beer and is here on BA every now and again. He can work with distributors and get some things if you ask for them. He also finds ways to get out of area beers and shares them with fellow advocates.
The beer selection is good for local and he even has some here and there great stuff. Had Stone 14 last time I was in and a few other great 22ozers. The glassware selection is amazing and is great for downtown Houston.
Great place and great guy.

Though the Spec's warehouse easily has them beat on overall selection and prices, D&Q is well worth a stop if you're in the Midtown/Montrose area. They have by far the best selection of singles I've found in Houston (which is admittedly not saying that much) and will usually break a sixer if what you want to try isn't already split out.
They sometimes get new releases or different products in first and, as others have mentioned, have a surprising glassware selection. They often have one or two specials going where if you buy a beer you get the glass for free.

Ok, so this place looks like a dump. I pulled up with my wife in the car and she asked if I was planning on a drug deal. I laughed.
I kept my expectations low even though I had heard good things. Upon entry, D&Q appears as a mild-mannered corner store. Lining the long back wall are coolers like any other store. As you approach the coolers, you realize that this is no ordinary corner store. You look to you right down the last aisle and you notice the veritable cornucopia of glassware. After talking to the clerk I learned that they try to stock a glass for every beer that they carry when possible.
After you collect yourself from ogling the glassware, you inhale and approach the coolers. At this point, I still half-way expected a few micro-brews and then a cooler full of Bud Light. Not the case. Not even close. They have damn near everything there from Sours to Stouts.
The service was impeccable. I asked about special ordering. The response was encouraging. I shall return...possibly today.

Stopped by this place while helping my girlfriend move to an apartment no less than 2 blocks away.
No complaints about the service; granted, no one is going to come up and help you unless you ask for it, but the cashier was very friendly and knew her beer. Great selection, with a huge variety of singles and bombers at reasonable prices. Sixers available too. Has pretty much everything you can find at a Spec's or Central Market, but the one distinction that sets apart D&Q (and helped me adjust my "selection" rating) is the glassware. At least 50 different glasses from various breweries, multiples of each, and the best part? They're all $3 apiece. I happily gobbled up a Houblon Chouffe tulip, a Duchesse de Bourgogne goblet, and a Great Divide tulip, and will return to buy some more soon.
Beer prices are a bit more expensive than CM or Spec's, but that's to be expected given D&Q's small market status. Besides, the cheap glassware more than makes up for it. Great little neighborhood beer shop, and one I'll be sure to frequent again...
