This place has a great selection but is too fucking expensive. Charley Hall prices his shit around 32% margin while S&K & Mr G’s are at 25 % and Whole Foods or Central Mkt are around 22%. F You Charley.
Look, when you’re beer hunting in DFW, you’re talking differences at the margin: perhaps Central Market doesn’t have the full line of Julius Echter available when you go; or perhaps Mr G’s had Old Ruffian when other stores in the area didn’t yet have it out. Whatever. It’s not like we’re talking about one store being the BE ALL END ALL of beer hunting. Halls has some marginal victories at the high end and the low end: I’d never even heard of, much less seen, Schaefer’s Light (for $1.09 for a big can!); and they had Avery The Beast’s new release. But since I’d had The Beast in its previous release (bought at Central Market), how big of a deal is this? Good: almost all beer in coolers, Chaucer’s Mead (the only place I’ve seen it in DFW so far), sake selection comparable to Central Market-Lovers Lane. But will I make special trips out here? No. But I will check it out when I’m headed to Fort Worth or Tad’s for any reason.
Wow!! I finally drove from N. Dallas to Colleyville for fun today...I saw the outside of this place and thought, TChrome and bu11zeye sure did trick me...don’t let the outside fool you!!!! FANTASTIC selection!! Probably the best or 2nd best one around!! 10/22/2004 they still had Unibroue 10 on the shelf!! They don’t anymore though... :

The largest selection of beer in the Dallas/Ft.Worth metroplex. In close proximity to DFW airport for those of you who travel. However, I will not be back due to the high prices of singles....

Re-Rate: DO NOT GO TO HALL’S. I just got back from a trip there. They tried to charge me $3.50 EACH for a single 12oz. of Rahr beer. Charlie Hall is a greedy SOB. Stay away.
