Quality: Everything seems well cared for and I'm very happy with the quality of what I've tasted.

Service: Outstanding, Rick treated me too well, holding stock for me to pick up, and making excellent suggestions.

Selection: While not the largest selection I've seen, there is a remarkable lack of crap. Everything he had was top shelf, fresh, and many things new to our market and hard to get.

Highly recommended. You may want to bring a jacket so you can hang out in the beer cave. Prices seem a touch high, but worth it for the quality, selection and rarity.

I am truly missing this place once I left Dallas.

I visited Lone Star Beverages on the way from Dallas to Norman, OK on the recommendation from a friend and I'm so glad he steered me to them! What a great store and what great guys! Rick and Sam are obviously passionate about craft beer and they go out of there way to make sure you have a good experience. Upon entering the store, Sam and Rick asked me if there was anything in particular I was looking for and when I mentioned I was from out of town and looking for TX and OK beers that I cannot get back home, they proceeded to give me a personal tour of the store and highlighted local beers that I should try. As far as selection it seemed like they had pretty much everything you could want. Huge selection of beer in the front when you walk in and a huge walk-in beer cooler with 4 packs, 6 packs, bombers and 12oz singles that were all very well organized.

They also gave me great recommendations for places to eat and drink in the Dallas area. I ended up buying about a case and a half of beer and stopped back in on the way back to Dallas to purchase a shipper for the bottles that I did not drink over the weekend.

I've been in stores where you feel like you are bothering them for asking about certain beers etc but these guys were the complete opposite. It felt more like hanging with your craft beer friend who has been at it longer and has all the best beers and just wants to share that beer, enthusiasm, and passion with you. Cannot be said strongly enough: Great guys, great store. I will be back and I will be sending my friends as well.

Amazing selection that includes the walk-in chilled beer cave with 2 rooms stocked floor to ceiling with the best bombers, 6-packs, 4-packs, and singles available to Texas. Looking for something in particular? Ask for help from the great staff that truly know their brew. I also highly recommend that you check out both their Facebook and Instagram if you are looking for a rare release that you know is on the way.

This place is a diamond in the rough. You will not find a better place than this in the north dallas area. Sam and Rick run their store like I wish every store would. The first time I came in I really got a sense of them having an appreciation of the community as opposed to selling you their beer and then being on your way. They have a good sense of conversation and letting you know what has arrived and what beer is selling quickly so you can get your hands on some.
Weekly tastings and getting the freshest beers are what stands out to me about this place. Do yourself a favor, if you're in a reasonable radius (I live 20 miles away) make the drive, grab some beer, and chat with Sam and Rick. You'll be back

No long description is needed, they are the best store in the metroplex for craft beer by far. They treat people right AND get all the great beer.

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.
