Visited late afternoon on a Monday. Strip mall location. Beer is the main story here, with new releases and sought after breweries directly in front center of the shop. There are also racks of warm beer to the right, and a walk in cooler on the side of the shop. Quite a few of the local brewery beers are available as singles. Large selection of Jester King and very friendly and knowledgeable employees. Best beer oriented store I have been to in Dallas (so far).
82 = ★★★½ (Solid place, near the top of the list for locals and visitors)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
My friend Ryan recommended this store, which was 50 min from where I was staying, it didn’t dissapoint. Sam and the crew know their beer. They asked me what I liked and where I was from, even printed out a list of breweries with styles I liked. In all my years I have never met a complete staff of folks that knew so much along with cared about my experience there. If it’s in Texas, they should have it for you. I highly recommend stopping here.
Seems to be some conflicting reviews of Frisco and Plano beer stores and changes in focus. I asked a beer rep I met at Holy Grail and she said Lone Star. I was not disappointed. Friendly staff. A good selection of Texas micros and very good beers from outside Texas.
Pretty good selection of craft beers here. Most limited stuff has a 1 bottle limit and you have to wait in line for it. Usually their prices are $1-3 higher than other places for the same bottles or six-packs, so not a great value place.
One of the best craft beer stores in town! Especially Denton County. Very knowledgeable about their products, and if they don’t have it Rick will do what he can to try to get it. I’ve been shopping here for a few years now and every time its been nothing but a great experience.
As far as beer stores in Dallas area are concerned, Lonestar is in the top tier. There is no finer customer service and rarely a better selection at any area stores. Rick is a consummate professional and does a great job valuing his customers. Recent reorganization has made room for more bottles and presented even better organization. If you find anywhere in Dallas that’s better to buy beer, please tell me!
