If your from Texas there really isnít a good reason to stop here. If your from out of town, the Specís on Highway 290 has a larger selection. I base this on my one trip to Austin but honestly, the beer section at this location is way smaller then the Highway 290 location.... Save yourself some time unless you are passing here and have more time then you know what to do with. Otherwise go to the large Whole Foods in Austin or 290 location for bottles.

I was under the impression that this was THE Specís to go to. It is worse than the Brodie Ln store and has way less selection. Prices are the same. Service was the same. Beer section was tiny. Selection was tiny.

Capt. Levi at Specís Airport knows his beer, and heís evidently got some connections that most of the beer guys in town donít have. Itís rather unfortunate, though, that Leviís pretty much the only guy in this particular store who really knows whatís going on with beer. Other employees are always helpful, but he seems to be wholly in charge of the beer department. This Specís has pretty much any beer youíll find in town, including all of the rare releases that come this way. Pretty nice prices, especially on their sales, and the 5% discount for cash or debit is a nice feature. Just about the best place for beer shopping if youíre in Austin.

I agree with one of the raters that if Specís doesnít have it, Texas doesnít have it. Specís has a great selection of beer and wine, more wine than beer. They have a nice grocery section with a deli. The shelves are loaded with off the wall snacks that you wouldnít find in your ordinary grocery store. They stock a lot of NorCal, Colorado and Midwest micros. They also had the usual NW micros, but nothing really rare from up there. I didnít notice anything from the upper midwest like Bellís, Three Flloyds, Great Lakes, New Glarus, etc. But they had some of the latest and greatest out from DFH and Lagunitas. Overall, a great place to buy beer in TX. I got some stuff I canít get in Idaho. But this place takes a back seat to places like Bottle Works in Seattle and Johnís in Portland.

I went to Austin to party on 6th street and I decided to get some bad ass brews for the weekend. I walked in and thought, "My God, this is the Wal-Mart of alcohol!" Service is good when you ask for help, but they don’t go out of their way to help. Selection of beer and liquor was massive; they have enough to keep me busy for years. The value was reasonable because if you use cash you get 10% off. Overall Spec’s kicks major ass!

Not much different than a Houston Specís but thatís not a bad thing. Specís is number 1 in Texas. If Specís doesnít have it, Texas doesnít have it.

Lots of these are popping up all over Austin. Not a horrible selection but not great either. It has a nice old Austin feel to it that the other Specís donít seem to have. Nice service - the beer guy was excited to help and talk and recommend beers. Overall, the best Specís location I have been to - but in general it isnít too special.

Great selection and really great prices. Fantastic booze variety too. Seemed friendly and helpful, though I didnít talk to anyone much.

Good beer selection overall, but the singles selection is lacking, comparatively, if that is what youíre looking for. About 2/3 of the stock is kept refrigerated. Prices are good and as cheap or cheaper as anywhere for most items, but not all. Have found much more stuff that only Grapevine has that Specs doesnít, than those that Specs has and Grapevine is lacking. People are nice enough, but for me, I prefer Grapevine, as Iím mainly interested in selection of beer and specifically singles. Itís nice getting updates from Grapevineís beer guy here on RB about new stuff available too- Still a good place though, even if it does smell like goddamn mothballs for some reason...
