A large liquor store that has a good selection of beer for Texas. This store also has a large wine selection as well as a small specialty grocery area. The employees are pretty knowledge able and the prices are competitive. Very good for the area.

Giant store. Lots of beer, wine, liquor. They have fancy foods. They offer "discounts" for paying with cash. The staff is usually helpful and kind.

Massive warehouse. Huge selection of wines and liquors including a massive TX selection (good or bad). Beer selection seemed quite complete, but I have been out of the area for over a year. Plenty of shelves of TX stuff. A fully stocked deli area as well with some decent produce. Good prices. A worthy bottle stop for sure.

Specís is a chain so I am rating the chain overall. Individual stores are better or worse depending on the staff and selection. I would not rate the Smith St. store as the highest in service since other stores have more helpful staff in the beer dept. One black mark on the Smith St. store. I was buying a whole unopened case and I was forced to open the case in order to get checked out. This caused a delay and the staff did not seem to care. Since I spend thousands of dollars a year at Specís I do feel I am entitled to some consideration. The Smith St. store sells out of the most popular ales faster so it is a matter of timing in order to obtain some of the rarer varieties. I am actually able to obtain some of the more difficult to find ales in some of the peripheral stores with a much more sympathetic and helpful staff. I would honestly give the Smith St. store a ranking of 65 but the other stores actually bring up the rating overall.

Huzzah! Specís is selling singles! Just one endcap and nothing cold but itís mostly locals and microbrew seasonals, which is what I typically want in singles anyway. No discount for picking up 6 (or 4, which are the plain carriers they had). Still, huzzah!

In town on buisness for a couple days and decided to check out this place. A decent selection of bombers, however I wish there had been some more singles to choose from. I will be stopping by again the next time I come to town to get more beer that I canít get in GA.

Decent selection. Well... best selection of beer anywhere close to me. My high ratings are based solely in comparison to everything else Iíve been to in the Greater Houston area. Their best store is by far the downtown Houston location on Smith Street. As I live over an hour from this location, I lovingly refer to it as "Mecca".

The Smith Street location is the epicenter of craft beer (bottles) availability in Texas. THE place to be for Divine releases (84 cases sold in under 12 minutes!) as well as finding any/all available beers for import into Texas. If this location doesnít have it, then itís probably not available in Texas. Highly recommended.
