Located just up the road from The Covey, we were able to find local beer from Rahr and Independence, along with Avery 13 and the more regular fare such as Stone, New Belgium and others. The import selection was decent, I donít think there was much that I havenít tried before, but there were enough Belgian bottles to keep me happy. Be sure to pick up the Orval and Chimay cheeses as well. Service I give an 8, because I donít know what else to do... usually at a beer store you just want to be left alone, unless you have a specific question. I did notice the beer manager was very helpful to other people, and was able to ansswer my only question fairly quick.
Central Market is a great place for all types of nice food, so I was expecting a great beer selection.
It had some nice qualities, but not great.
The best thing about Central Market is that you can take one beer from any 6 pick you can truly create your own 6 packs. This is aweseome!
However, there are a bunch of downsides. All the beers are in a cooler, which to me is a big no-no.
Secondly, the selection and quality werenít that good. They had a ton of beers but they were all pretty widely available, nothing that was high quality craft, and only a few local Texas beers.
Great, idea, but not executed well.
Better enviornment than Dallas Central Market, better selection, and they allow you to break any six pack you want without having to be made to feel guilty by going up to the counter and getting them to individually label them. Better selection than Dallas beer wise, and some good sakeís as well. Nice older gentleman working there seemed to know his stuff decently well.
Much less stressful than dallas, because they donít look at your weird when you linger. Nice help even though they are pretty old. Easy to grab singles right and left without having to have someone help break the bottles down. Better domestic selection than dallas but not as strong on imports. Not bad.
Decent prices, nice location saw some beers I havenít seen in the plano area but, did not see a lot from my normal beer stores. Nice place to pick something up when youíre not looking for stuff too far out of the box.
If Iím looking for bottles in Fort Worth I stop here. This is my favorite "quantity" location. I just like that I can mix-and-match anything into a 6-pack, especially local/TX offerings from St Arnold or Rahr. Plus I just like the concept of the store. I tend to wander the aisles aimlessly for hours. Grab something fresh from the bakery too.
One of my favorite spots to shop for beer in Fort Worth. The selection is pretty good and covers a wide variety of styles. Always lots of good Texas locals to choose from. They allow you to break up 6-packs which is awesome. Nice choice in bombers as well. Has the typical groceries that you would expect to see at an HEB store. I always return!
