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.

I stopped here just to see what might be available, as it's just a little south of a great Specs location. That proximity might both help and hurt beer geek sales, I guess I'd shop the 2 against each other if I lived here.
Specs is king at this point, best selection every time I'm in Houston and decent pricing. But this place is pretty good for selection too, less overall than Specs but there were a few things I didn't see anywhere else so worth a stop for that.
Small store, Kwik-E mart style, but lots of good beer in the coolers, plenty of singles too. Maybe the availability of the singles is the defining point, pretty decent.

This is a great place to find great beer. I always try to make a stop there whenever I am in the area. The prices are very reasonable and they have a decent selection. The owner is very knowledgeable and didn't bat an eye when I walked away with several cases.
The only downside is that the store looks like a gas station.

So I was on a family trip to Galveston and had a chance to spend the day in Houston. I was eager to check this place out from the amazing reviews it has received.
Alas, I was somewhat disappointed in the fact that I was expecting sheer awesomeness. The vibe was like I walked into a head shop with loud stand up comedy on the big screen. No warm welcome or even an acknowledgment.
The selection was decent they had a few big beers but nothing too spectacular. The Belgian selection was sub par at best and besides a few Mikkeller's and Jester Kings there was nothing that I couldn't get back home in OK. Pricing was steep by a few bucks a bottle IMO. I paid $44 for two 750's and a 12oz single. Shockingly selling single 12oz run of the mill craft beer for $3.49. Outrageous!
They did have a great selection of glass wear but the layout was confusing and unless I just missed it I saw no warm six packs. Too many beers in the cooler I don't really want a beer from the cooler.
All in all a decent experience but nothing breathtaking but for a mini mart it scores big points. I can honestly say that this is no go to stop unless you want exclusives which you must have to ask for.
