Very nice store with a good selection. What sets this shop apart was the service. Rick was incredibly helpful when I was there. In fact, 2 bombers were spirited from my hands to the front counter while I was shopping. Maybe it was to free up more space for additional purchases but it was very nice anyway. The selection can't compare to box stores, there just isn't the space for it, but the quality is great. There are excellent examples of just about any style and they do offer a limited mix your own sixer.
Definitely a great spot to shop and chat beer.

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.
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!
