i did a quick tour of all the liqour stores in the immediate area. and the biggest and most thought out selection was here. not the greatest number of belgian though out of all the stores. but still a solid sort. and some of the cheapest prices. unibroue terrible for 8 bucks! everything by unibroue was a steal. a lot of thought out american brews in the selection. some brewdogs. no allash though. stones, green flash and lagunitas. some germans. schniderwiesse, hacker and weinnehstephinar. but predominately american hammers.

This is my second go to place. Their selection is great. I can usually expect whatever I'm looking for to be in stock. And when I go in, the employee's are very friendly. Their beer guy knows his stuff. Some of the rarer stuff he keeps in the back, but he can always be found so that you can ask for it. They are almost always the lowest price that I can find. And everyonce in a while, they'll have a sale with outstanding low prices. The inside of the store is very clean and classy. Great establishment.

I stopped in while in Dallas on business. I wasn't really looking for anything but thought I'd see what an A rated Texas beer store looks like. I was definitely impressed.

The bulk of the stock is well organized displayed in refrigerated units. They have lots of Texan, Belgian, English and German beers with a decent sampling from all over the US.

The prices seemed very reasonable to me. And the service was good as well. I was greeted and asked if I had any questions.

Majestic Liquors has a nice stock and seems genuinely committed to craft beer.

Since Majestic is near my apartment this is my usual first stop when I shop for my weekend brews. Inwood Road has a row of beer/wine/liquor stores but I think Majestic is the best of the lot.

The beer is located in the back in a long line of coolers. There is no beer outside the coolers except for any beers that might be featured or on sale that day. The selection is very good, ranging from the usual suspects to a fine selection of Belgians and microbrews. While the selection is not on par with Halls or Kegs & Barrels, if you can't find what you're looking for here, you probably won't find it at another liquor store in the area.

The pricing is not bad, higher on some beers that other places and lower on others.

This is a good spot if your in the Dallas?Fort Worth area. Friendly and moderately knowledgeable regarding craft beer, it was a pleasant place to shop. They have a few craft beers that are harder to find in the DFW area. What I'm trying to say is: Compared to all Majestics in the DFDubb, this one gets the rarest beers. So they say. I noticed on my one visit they had Lagunitas Ruben and the Jets and a few select other beers that are rare to the Fort Worth area. Reasonably priced and average compared to other Majestic stores in the vicinity.

Stopped in here on a business trip (I am from Philadelphia) due to the BA reviews. Large store - wine, liquor on the floor, 99% of the beer in the cooler. Nice selection - it is a large cooler - Deschutes, New Belgium, Langunitas, Avery, Left Hand, DFH, Bear Republic, Brooklyn, Ommegang, Unibroue, plus a nice selection of Belgians (a bit more than the usual suspects - Satan, nice), Germans, and English beers. Good selection of Texan beers (St Arnold, Real Ale, not just Shiner), and the usual BMC stuff. Mostly single 12 or 22oz bottles, with some 6 packs (again, I am from PA so this is cool). Nice store, clean, bright, feels mor of a liquor store than a beer store, which is OK. No posters or banners.

No one tried to "help" me, which I like, I am happy browsing alone without anyone bugging me. They gave me the Cown card discount without asking and boxed my 10 bottles and carried them to the car - impressive.

this was my second trip here with mostly favorable results. all of the craft beer available in texas are here including great divide,steamworks,green flash, stone, rogue, AVERY, tommyknocker, bear republic and ommegang. a good belgian and german selection is available with the typical abbey beers and 1 or 2 trappists.
on my first trip i did get a great divide fresh hop that was many months old but that was my fault for picking that beer in july when it couldnt have been fresh. service is adequate. i didnt see any "beer guy" around. i really cant say much for prices because i havent shopped anywhere else around except central market(similar prices/less selection). i didnt see any rarities or must haves except for the avery 15.
overall good store within minutes of addison and the galleria.

Great selection. One of my regular hits.

They have a continually changing selection of micros distributed around this area. I see most beers at other stores around the area, but this store has a pretty good selection under one roof. Better than most Majestic Liquors around and better than any grocery store I've been to.

It's the finding of that one beer that you haven't seen at any other store that makes me return to the Addison Majestic once a month or so. They get some beers I haven't found elsewhere.

Personal Antidote: There's at least one beer guy who works there. My first time visiting I held a bottle of Left Handed Breweries' Haystack Wheat up to the light to try and see some yeast when the beer guy walked by and under his breath I heard "It's unfiltered... and it's good." I had to buy it (and it is good). And ever since I have trusted the Addison Maejestic beer guy with by beer questions.

Wow, checked out this place at lunch to pick some booze up for my mom. After browsing through the beers for about five minutes I was greeted by Les, whom I'm guessing is the beer buyer from the way he was talking. He knew his stuff, knew the ins and outs, and what was coming in. Seemed to know most of the stuff on the shelves, which there was LOTS, and stuff that isn't stocked or he can't get. Had about a thirty minute convo with the guy, very informative and helpful. Didn't pick anything up as my fridge is packed, but good to know this place for when I have events in the hood. They get lots of the rare goods that I haven't seen anywhere else in DFW. Well stocked, good prices, and quick turn around on selections. Even better is, He was telling me he has been having to reduce and remove the shelving of BMC to make more room for the craft and imports. Awesome! Highly Recommended.

I made a long trek out to this Majestic on my lunch break today; quite a drive, but well worth it. This is a very nice place, well layed out, friendly help, well lit (maybe a bit too bright on the brews, but from the dates I saw they seem to have a pretty good turn-over in stock). I had to pick my jaw up off the floor a few times while browsing their huge beer selection, just some stuff that I've never seen in TX and thought I never would. I left with bottles of Old Rasputin, DFH 120, Mephistopheles, Hennepin, Maharaja IPA, Oak Aged Yeti, and some sixers of Real Ale (sample pack) and St Arnold Elissa to support the local TX folks.

Whoa, and these were just the domestics. I've got to make another trip to load up on imports, and they have just as healthy a selection of those as well.

Majestic Liquor Stores is a large chain of retail beverage stores mostly located in Tarrant County. This Majestic Liquors (located off of Belt Line Road not too far from BJ's Brewhouse & the Flying Saucer) has one of the better selections with a good variety of imported & microbrewed beer (including local) with a good amount of cooler space to keep the beer fresh. This is a newer, larger location that is bright, clean, and well maintained. The staff is very friendly and helpful, but don't expect to find anyone that knows more than the basics about beer. There's also a good selection of bar supplies, cigars, spirits, & wine if you're into that stuff. Majestic Liquors should certainly be on any beer lovers list of stops if you find yourself in the neighborhood.

CHEERS! Beertracker

*Thanks to the Finnman for suggesting the place.

Update: March 08

Every time I come in the selection gets better. The Rogue selection has improved considerably. If you can't find it here, you probably can't find it in Texas.

Wow, what a selection! Majestic is the new kid on the Addison booze strip (Inwood Road). The store is shallow from front to back and wide from left to right. Almost the entire back wall is refrigerated beer and the better portion of that is craft brews.

The selection is simply stunning. It is the only place in the North Central Dallas/Addison/Plano area at which I've found Mackeson's Triple Stout, for example.

The beer is organized by place of origin. Majestic's web site says that they carry over 450 beers, and I don't doubt it. All the good stuff is here. Stone, Rogue, Duvel, Great Divide, etc. The only elite brewery they were thin on when I last visited was Rogue. They only had Dead Guy Ale. I know that Shakespeare Stout, at least, is also available in DFW and I was disappointed not to see it.

Up until I discovered Majestic, I depended on a combination of Central Market Plano and Whole Foods Plano for my beer shopping. Majestic is now my one-stop shop. Check out their specials at http://www.majesticliquors.com/products/beers/featured.php. Today, for example, they have Sam Smith Winter and Spaten Oktoberfest (among several others) on special.

As far as freshness of inventory is concerned, all I can say is that my Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout was very fresh tasting. and I - like others - have had skunked Sam Smith before (when bought from other stores), so this is some evidence of fresh inventory.

I've edited my review to drop the service grade a notch. I requested that they carry Rogue Shakespeare Stout and I think they blew off my request.
