This is the place I usually go to for beer. It's not super close to me either but it's always worth it. The people working there are always nice and know their stuff really well.

They are always doing special events, tastings, etc.

Lonestar has an AWESOME selection of beer and seems to always get the rare ones in as well (last time was Velvet Merkin, The Abyss, Bourbon County Stout, La Folie).

Stopped in to check out the selection and I was very in impressed for the DFW area. These two guys really know there stuff and are great people. This will be my "go-to" beer spot when I am in the Dallas area. If there is something you want but don't see certainly ask they are more than willing to help you find it.

The only place in North Dallas that gets everything.

A: Weekly beer tastings, well labelled selection with ratebeer scores for most beers, staff selections, this place has everything.

Q: Huge walk in cooler for customers to get cooled beer or same selection on non-cooled shelves, you can get exactly what you want here.

S: All the staff is very helpful, they will hold beers if they aren't extremely limited, answer all your questions and give good suggestions if you aren't sure what to try. They also drive to Houston and Austin to pick up beer that isn't distributed up to DFW, only place to get most of this stuff in North Texas, that fact alone should give them a world class rating.

S: Read above, only place in DFW to get a lot of Houston and Austin beer, and they get everything distributed to town.

F: N/A

Value: Its not hte cheapest, but you get what you pay for here.

This store's drive up makes you think of any other run of the mill beer store. (It's next to a CVS in a strip shopping center). However, your impression will change when you walk in. The selection of beer and wine are quite impressive when you walk in. However, there's more. Hidden in plain site is a huge double door walk in cooler filled with craft beer.

This store has tons of choices of really good Texas beers. If it's new and crafty and made in Texas they have it! They even have beers not distributed in Dallas. These guys make a trip down to Austin to get beers down there and bring them up to the Dallas area. For you Wisconsinites, they have Sprecher!

One thing I haven't mentioned yet is that they not only have good Texas beers but they have knowledgeable beer staff to help you find the beer that's right for you. They don't push you towards their most expensive beers in their place, they help you find the beer you tell them you want.

Mar is an awesome beer guy to talk to. He's highly ranked on RateBeer (i know the competition to BA) and he knows his beer. He's easy to talk to and full of knowledge.

If you're in the Carrollton area and looking for craft beer, you must stop here!

I was coming to the DFW area on business and posted on here asking for recommendations for a local place to check out a selection of brews. The guys sent an email to me saying I should stop by and see what they had. Nice selection however I could get the majority back home but the service was first rate!!! They had a few limited distro brews in the back that they made available to me as well. Real hospitality here and much appreciated. I would come back again when in town to see if I could throw them some business. Check em out if ur in town!

Stopped by for the first time on 4/26

A- Good friendly atmosphere

Q- They had a very good selection of top brewery offerings. They even held a BBA Anderson Valley Stout for me. A lot of places will not do that. I certainly appreciated that!

S- The guy working there was very helpful and showed me around their selections as soon as he found out it was my first visit. I was pleasantly surprised on how much they had.

S- They had an outstanding selection of Texas offerings. I haven't seen any Austin Beerworks or Karbach anywhere else in DFW. I also found several on my wants list (that I keep in my mind...lol) I really underestimated what I was going to find here. I spent $50 very quickly and could have easily spent more....lol!

V- I thought that the prices were in line with most places

This is a great spot and is a must visit when in the DFW area. They have great service and a great selection that makes for an easy time spending money. A must visit!

The owner's (co-owner?) name is Rick and he was working the counter when I came in. He has a top notch selection. Ask Rick for anything special you have in mind (or just ask him if he's holding any rarities in the back). He will physically go into the back and check for you. I went there, and he came back with St. Arnold DR10, 11, a bomber of DR12, Stone Mint chocolate stout, and gave me great recommendations when I couldn't decide between some beers. The guy and his store are Class A, 10/10, totally awesome. I can't say enough good things about him. Go check it out. Guarantee you will not be disappointed.

One of the best selections of craft beer in the DFW metroplex, with many hard-to-find beers in stock that you won't find anywhere else. Friendly and knowledgeable staff who will help you get what you're looking for. Great selection of keg beer also, especially local brews. Will be one of my first choices if I'm looking for something special or interesting.

Excellent and knowledgeable staff were able to help me select several specialty beers for my brother's birthday.

Matt spent a great deal of time helping me select the best beers according to my brother's interests.

Very helpful and extremely knowledgeable.

Would recommend Lone Star Beverages to anyone that is going to be in the DFW area!

Visiting from Oklahoma. I wanted to find something in Carrolton that could represent with some local beers and those not available in Oklahoma. I was very pleased with the selection. Great selection outside the beer cooler and a great selection inside. Had all the locals and regionals in 12 oz and bombers. The manager had many suggestions of the locals and what was new. He was extremely helpful. I will definitely return. When we said we were looking for a place to eat downtown before a concern, the manager suggested two places and then looked up the addresses and wrote them down for us. He did not have to do that. They also have beer tastings on Friday's from 5-8PM. Great for a novice or a more experienced beer collector.
