I can tell Rick takes great enjoyment in running one of the finest beer stores in the Southwest by the zeal he took in showing me around and making sure I didn't miss a thing. This attention to detail and customer service is something sorely missing in the craft beer world, as standoffish as it is. If other retailers took half as much effort and interest in the client, then there would be some more money to be made I'm sure, and some very sophisticated and happy consumers.

Ok, enough of the spiel, let's get to the details.

Beers up front and the rest is in the back as it should be. Has a section for new beers, and you get an idea of the overall selection as soon as you walk in due to product placement. Prices were missing on some of the beers, which did cause me to pass over a few. There's a huge walk-in fridge stocked with fresh, cold IPA and other fresh-centric brews from across the country, all sorted by geographical region. Rick pointed out some new locals, and after trying them I can say he was spot on.

Selection was excellent with a nice array from all the big wigs and quite a few gems from the large regionals (Brooklyn, Boulevard, Clown Shoes, Firestone etc.). Belgian/Foreign selection was also well-represented. Of course, all Texas breweries of consequence were out in force and lotsa Blakkr available. Prices were a tad higher than normal, but not excessive by any means. You get what you pay for, and I can't begrudge a man for charging for worth.

Can't wait to stop back in the next time I"m in the Big D.

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).
