Midway Mart is one of the best beer stores in Denton, and certainly the best near UNT and TWU.

The store sits right off the square in an unassuming gas station. It's hard to believe that it stocks so many varieties of beer. The first time I walked in, I was blown away. Great selection. The owners and workers at Midway Mart are extremely friendly and knowledgeable. They're always helpful in choosing a beer and finding beers. Any time I was looking for something they didn't stock, they wrote down what I was looking for and, within a few visits, they would have it.

Overall, a fantastic store.

Even though prices can be a bit steep for some of the brews, many are available here with very fair prices. If there are any beers that they do not have, they will try their hardest to special order them for you. Also, if you are a frequent shopper or show interest in specialty beers, they will text you when they receive new beers. I have even had beers especially put aside and saved for me until I returned back into town.

Midway Mart has become THE place for beer purchasing when I don't feel like cranking up the car. Very convenient at only a mile away from my home. In terms of service, I personally have not been that helped by the usual clerk, but the other day, I saw him conversing with other customers about the new winter seasonals that had just come in. On the subject of seasonals, I was very impressed that they had winter offerings from Great Divide, Pyramid, and several others. They even had Delirium Noel. As far as the entire selection goes, for a gas station, this place can't be beat. A little pricey, however.

Edit: Bumping up the rating of the service, as over the months, as I've come to chat with the usual clerk, he has been extremely helpful in letting me know what is available when. He will even order beer that is currently not in stock if I ask. Excellent service.

I pretty much concur with everyone else's reviews. It's always a shock to see how much great beer is crammed into this tiny little gas station and I've often wondered if I would feel differently if the same inventory was spread out into a larger store. But that's really the charm of the place. Everything is refrigerated, and I've never had quality issues. Prices are not super cheap, but certainly reasonable. I always seem to be able to find something that I haven't had before. I'm very happy to have this as the closest quality beer store to my home!

Having recently moved to Denton, I had heard about this from friends who told me it was the best beer store in town. So one day I decided to drop in and see what was to be had... Aside from an inconvenient parking lot, I was very impressed!

They had a lot of things I hadn't heard of, and had most things that I expected to see. The prices were a little steep on some things, but as always I just look for things on sale to try and get a good deal. I grabbed a Samuel Smith sampler with Pint glass to fill out my collection, so thats always a plus.

Will definitely return here many times!

EDIT: Have re-visited many times since my original trip, and generally am impressed. The beer has always been quality and they have a nice rotating stock of specials. Also a selection of glassware, $3 each or 3 for $7 (I think).
