Incredible prices. 42 craft beers (4 packs and 6 packs of cans) ran me $140!
That’s 3.33 a beer. $20 six packs folks, and cans were not made of gold. These were not exotic beers, most from hawaii and texas.
The guy is nice enough and it’s an interesting place for sure but the prices were a bit much.

A drive-in beer barn. Only in Texas would they promote drinking and driving like this. But, it’s a pretty nice selection, and super convenient. Just tell the guy what you want, and he grabs it from the cooler. Awesome!

Visited with the impression that it wasn’t a drive through, but arrived, and am sort of was perplexed by it. I could get out of the car and look at what they had, but really was not impressed with the selection- mostly BMC with a few cooler doors sprinkled with the typical micro fare (SA, Stone, Victory, Sierra Nevada...). Don’t get me wrong, the owner was very kind and nice, but it just wasn’t my kind of place.

Big red barn filled with a bunch of cool random stuff on the walls. For as big as the place is they do not have a huge selection but they do have a nice quality section fille with a bunch of beers that cannot be found anywhere else in the area. Full like of Stone bombers, Victory, DFH and bunch of other cool brews.

This place is actually a big red barn filled with beer and 20 years of stuff collected from garage sales, flea markets, etc. which definitely makes for an interesting ambiance. We parked outside and walked in. The owner was extremely helpful and just an extremely interesting dude to talk to. We were looking for local TX stuff and beers we can’t get in AZ. When we left, the wife commented that if we lived in the area, it would be fun just to go there and sit and have a beer with the owner on the chairs outdside the door - I agree.

Buddy’s might edge out Billy Crews as best beer store in the El Paso area. The guys that work there are always friendly, and they’ll often cut you a break if you’re buying a lot of beer. I don’t actually like the drive through idea (you can basically park right next to the cold cases), so I usually park outside and walk through the gate/door. Anyways, the beers don’t always have prices listed on the bottle, which kind of stinks, but they’re usually not too outrageous. Again, in terms of "best beer store in the El Paso area," Buddy’s selection is definitely bigger, but Billy Crews has a few beers that Buddy’s doesn’t.

probably the best beer store around my area (55 mile drive, but worth it). They carry DFH, St Arnolds, Full Sail, Rogue, and many good belgians. The build a 6pk option works well with me. prices are high but thats due to the main distributor that carries the good beers being 650 miles away (Austin, TX-JR goodmans). Its nice to see DFH in the desert!!!
