From the outside, it's a dingy old liquor store. From the inside.... well, it's still a dingy old liquor store, but clean and well-organized. Beer is not a specialty but there is a dedicated aisle for micros and imports with a selection that rivals Central Market. I even spied a few here that haven't shown up at CM yet.

Two drawbacks exist, namely no mixed singles and that the beer is kept at room temp on warehouse shelving. Not really a problem, since the interior is climate-controlled and the shelves should shield most of the overhead lights (no less so than cooler lights). A smaller subset of micros/imports are kept cold in the back coolers but the bulk is in the aisles. Good for west Tarrant County and probably the best beer selection between here and the New Mexico border.

This is the go to place for any kind of liquor you want in Fort Worth. Has been located at the same place on Camp Bowie for years and I'm sure has been visited by everyone who has lived in Fort Worth for any decent amount of time at one time or another. Decent selection of beer. I'd say it's above average, but not as good as Majestic. It remains, however, the first and only place I have ever seen Shiner Bock cans. They sell kegs as well. This is certainly one of the top liquor stores in Fort Worth. A staple in the area.

Decent selection of micros and a few imports (in addition to big beer and a bunch of liquor). Few sixers in cool, but most is on room temp shelves.

Traffic is not high for craft beers, so some sit around too long. This can be a good thing, if you want some Punkin Ale in June. I guess this bodes well for many seasonal brews that are hard to find or quick to sell out. If you don’t feel like being adventurous, avoid those that are dusty. I’ve never had a freshness problem.

The staff is nice and friendly. They remember me each time I return (no more than once a month, or so). Prices are okay. Good, solid, local liquor store where you can buy you some Rahr.

Kings is a Fort Worth establishment. I grew up in Forth Worth, and Kings has been around since my father was a college student at TCU, quite some time ago. Situated just two blocks away from the TCU campus, it's a big hit with the students as well as the locals in the area.

Kings boasts a huge wine selection, which may be what they're most well-known for (they have a great wine glass rental policy if you're ever in need for a large party by the way). But their beer selection is nothing to scoff at either. Nice selection of craft brews from around the country. Some Stone, some Rogue, Dogfish Head, etc. And some nice imports like Duvel, Unibroue, and the like. They of course have a nice selection of Texas brews such as Shiner, St. Arnolds, and Rahr (a Fort Worth brewery). Nothing out of the ordinary, though, for a good beer store. Too bad, because they still don't quite match up to the local megahouse, Central Market, when it comes to selection, but if you live in the TCU area and you don't feel like a long trek to find good beer, Kings is your best best. A superior selection to what's offered down the street at the Albertson's grocery store.
