If you are looking for beer in Houston, then this is the place to go. They have all the BMC products and an ever growing selection of previously hard-to-find craft brews. Routinely there are wine and liquor tastings throughout the store.

Oh did I forget to mention the massive selection of wines as well as liquor. From the low end to the scotch older than me, they have it all. Now combine all this with a well stocked walk-in humidor and a world class deli and then you may begin to understand this Houston landmark!

I just moved to Houston for work. I was born and raised in Cleveland, OH, went to school at Texas A&M in College Station, TX and spent summers in Minneapolis, MN and Washington D.C.

This is by far the best beer store I have ever been to. The only real comparison I can describe is... remember when you were 5 and you went to Toys R Us for the first time? How unbelievable it was so be surrounded by so much of everything that you could ever want. That's what it's like the first time you walk into the Spec's warehouse. Rows and rows of craft beer. And all at the best prices you can get anywhere in town.

Spec's is the place to buy beer (and every other alcohol) in Houston. The downtown location is huge (like massive grocery store size) and stocked. The selection is great, and the staff are always helpful with finding you stuff and giving you recommendations. There's even a "real" grocery part in the back. They also have Spec's cards for your keychain (think Kroger Plus). Anyone who lives in Houston most likely knows about Spec's or has been to one of the locations. If you haven't been to the downtown, you've got to go! If you're visiting and going to be in the downtown and area and want to do some shopping, go!
