My go-to place for beer right now. It will be a while before I run out of options. Great staff willing to help you decide on a beer or four, whether you need to pair it with food or just want something new.

They had some pretty good stuff and things that I couldnít find anywhere else in the area but their prices are a little higher than elsewhere in town and their claim to have the biggest craft beer selection in Texas is far from true from what I seen. Maybe this store is just a smaller one than others but overall it was decent.

Dropped by on my way to San Marcos looking for Ranger Creek beers and bourbon. Found both, along with a solid selection of beers. Theyíre not all in the same area, which is curious, but certainly worth a stop if youíre not from the area. PS - Bring cash for a discount.

I know that this store is still in itís infancy. However, I expect more from Specís. Itís a far cry from the Houston (Smith St.) mother-ship and even the closest "mature" locations in Austin (Brodie Ln and Round Rock). During two visits, I was never offered any assistance (even though I did my best to look clueless and wandered for 10 to 15 minutes). Average cold selection and a sub-par "warm" bottle area. I expect this store to get better, but, at the moment itís a "pass" when Iím heading into SA.
