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.

Went into this shop and was amazed at the selection. The shop does not look like much form the outside, but inside there is beer everywhere. Looked around for 5 minutes then asked the owner or help. He immediately pointed out their best selections to drink now, cellar and other rare offerings. He helped me look through the store and allowed me to choose what I wanted. Once I got to the front he offered me rare beers from the cooler that were not available to browsers. This included several special barrel offerings not available elsewhere When I come back to Texas I will visit this place again. Hopefully to bring and trade Wisconsin beer.

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.

On the outside you would never even give this place a look, but itís the best hidden beer jem and definitely the most friendly beer store in Houston, but it doesnt end there. Awesome selection of bottles from all around with the option of buying singles on pretty much all of them! Huge selection of branded beer glasses priced very reasonably, four beers on tap to take home in growlers and a lovely owner who can appreciate good beer and good customers, and is glad to give out recommenations. Prices are slightly higher than the mega shops, but thats totally understandable and anyway itís much more satisfying to leave your money at the small businesses.

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.

Just an update to say the growler fills are on hold -- hopefully a temporary situation. Thank Texasí wacky liquor laws. How is D&Q not already in the database here? From the outside it looks like any other independent convenience store but inside is an awesome beer mecca. On price and overall selection they canít compete with the much better known Specís Warehouse but unlike Specís they sell just about everything they carry as singles and rare items tend to stay on the shelves a bit longer. Also a huge selection of pint and other branded beer glasses. Itís also only a couple miles from Specís so after browsing and bulk-buying there, swing by D&Q for a few oddities and a couple BYO 6-packs.

A convenience store (it really is a mini-mart) looking place that is full of singles perfect for the traveling beer geek. A little bit of talking with what seemed to be the beer guy and he made sure I was walking out of there with a nice sample of Texasí finest, including a batch one (non-farmhouse) of Black metal he pulled out of the back for me.

If I end up back in the Houston area, I know I will be stopping back here. Value wasnít even a consideration, as I really didnít pay too much attention to the prices, and it even seemed like I got a price break and he even offered up some free schwag.

So Iím in town this week and had to find the best bottle shop. Closed on Sunday, but I made another trip today. This place does not disappoint. There is a great selection of beers from around the world with lots I canít get back East. Super friendly service and I will definitely be back next time Iím in town.

Best bottle selection in town. Lots of singles and harder to get bombers. Good selection of glassware as well. Friendly staff.

I have been here 4 times in the past year and each time I visit, I find something new and learn something great. The owners are Excellent hosts and make you feel at home, even when a busy holiday party is taking place. Granted, most people come here for the highlight - Texas beer, midwest beer, prairie - Great Plains beer. My last visit awarded me with Prairie Artisan Ales Bomb, which I could possible never find in my little Armpit of the Panhandle FL. What I love about this place the most is - the beer. Itís a grand selection thatís constantly changing, and it features the best thatís available in this part of Texas. Cheers
