D&Q is located on the southwest side of Houston on Richmond Ave, right off the Southwest Freeway. There is a small parking lot and street parking nearby. The store is laid out like a convenience store, brightly lit, small and somewhat cramped. The beer is located along the rear in coolers and on some shelves. There is also glassware in the back.

The beer selection consists of a couple hundred brands including Texas breweries like Jester King, Southern Star, Karbach and Ranger Creek. Other domestic craft brewers like Boulevard and Alaskan, plus some imports.

Service at the shop was friendly and somewhat knowledgeable.

Overall this is a good store to visit in the Houston area.

A unassuming corner store jam packed with beer. Owner is nice and took me on a tour, showing me highlights. After a brief discussion, offered some from his stash in the back. Prices are higher than than SPECS, but I was happy with to support him. There was a food truck outside, so food is there as well

Pretty nice store, not sure it is worth the rating, but nice nonetheless. Great selection of Texas beers, plus a smattering from all over the world. I picked up some nice imp. stouts as well as two new countries. Maybe it is just hard to find a great bottle shop in Houston, but with this rating I expected to find some A-list beers such as Cantillon, 3 Fonteinen, Fantome, De Molen, Struise. None of the above.

A nice surprise. Looks to be a typical liquor store, but once in side you see an amazing bottle selection as well as even some taps for growlers. Seem to get a few things that are not available around town. Prices are great and service is solid.

Far from a good looking store, but the selection was very good, lots of singles available, lots of good beers in general and quite a few beers in the coolers. Could easily have spent several hundred dollars buying unsampled beers only, even more if I was going to pick favorites as well. Will definitely be back on my next visit to Houston.

Went here on the recommendation from some friends and the great people here at RB. When you read the reviews they are spot on. This is by far the best store to go for craft beer in Houston. May not be as large as Specís but definitely some unique offerings. A ton of glassware and even some spaghetti-oís for sale, haha. Four or Five growler to-go stations, as well. Donít expect any organizaton because bottles are literally scattered all over the place. This isnít really a problem though because the service is top-notch. The owner is a great guy and even grabbed some stuff for me from his personal cellar, including the original Black Metal. Great store with a wonderful owner. When I come back to Houston I will definitely be back.

The best beer store in Houston in my opinion. They donít have the wine or spirits selection that the downtown Specs has, but the beer selection is better. They also have four taps that they fill growlers of (any growler) and have a staff that is very friendly and very knowledgeable.

Small, hole-in-the-wall beer shop that looks almost like a gas station from the outside, minus the pumps. The owner is really nice and friendly and will always make suggestions on what you should try based on what youíve purchased before and will often offer special beers that he doesnít put out on display. He is always getting in different beers from all over the place and prices them fairly. Definitely my local beer store in Houston.
