Nice bottle shop. Prices are a better than G’s but not as low as CM. No breaking 6’ers

Nice prices compared to Fermentations and selection more vaired than Central Market. Not sure if you can break sixers, which limits the variety you can walk out with. Friendly service and easy to find.
O.k... so I stopped by here (I live in mckinney) because of you guy’s here at rate beer! I’m glad I did! The selection for me was about the same as mr. g’s or central market execept that they had avery’s Samael’s beer which I haven’t found at any other beer store in the dallas area and they had a better selection of belgian beers. but they lacked in other beer’s such as british and the like. Although central market tends to get the new beers faster than anyone else, and mr. g’s lets you break up 6-packs, this store was great! not to mention the nice glassware selection and awesome service. The other thing I liked was that they kept all their beers cold (including all of the belgium abbye style beers). I actually found the prices to be comparable to mr. g’s and central market (you can buy dogfish 90 Min. ipa for 8.99 here, whereas it’s 9.99 at mr. g’s). This will be a place I frequent a little more often!
Looks like your typical strip center liquor store (all liquor and only macro beers), but don’t let that fool you. This place has a selection that rivals major-chain liquor stores, AND they have glassware. Great place- definite stop if you’re in the area.
great place for the dallas area. they don’t let you break sixers, but they are very friendly and tend to get the new stuff first. the staff might not know everything about micros but they try and they tend to remember me and go out of thier way to alertt me to new stuff. plus they are usually a bit less expensive than mr g’s and some central market stuff. it is my primary shopping place.
I stopped in there last night and while I wasn’t overwhelmed I was reasonably pleased. Most everything is in coolers, with some displays of cases. They had about 70 to 80% of what you would find in Central Market, plus some Gluek-type fake-micro six-packs that CM didn’t. I was pleased that they had the Great Divide Old Ruffian, the first place in the area that I’ve seen it (not in at CM yet). I wish they had singles for sale of beers from six-packs, but in typical Texas beer-store style they did have an iced table of singles of Bud, Busch, and the like. :-( The service was pleasant enough. In short, I wouldn’t go out of your way to get here, but for the North Plano/McKinney area this is not a bad stop. I would much prefer to hit the double of CM in Plano and the nearby Mr. G’s.
