After reading about this place on BA I decided to drive the 30+ miles each way to give it a shot and I am glad that I did. I had planned on also going to Spec's Liquor Warehouse on the way home but after filling up my backseat at D&Q with gems there was no need. The reviews I read were correct, Brandon is ultra-knowledgeable and kind, so was the lady that worked there with him. I will certainly be making the monthly pilgrimage downtown, fighting off insane drivers and poor roads easily knowing that I WILL be able to find some QUALITY beers that I have not tried yet. I picked up 9 bombers (including some that I had never heard of), a growler from (512) Brewery, and a 4 pack of Bittersweet Lenny's RIPA from He'Brew as well as a 6-pack of mixed brews for under $115.

They also have cool shirts from local breweries for affordable prices. There is a (blech) wine section as well for those unfortunate souls we call co-workers, friends and family. Snacks, smokes, sunglasses, hand-blown glass items, ice, local publications and many other products found in "mini-marts" are also available. Beer signs, glasses, and other promotional paraphernalia are also for sale. After chatting a bit with the propreitors I was given an awesome Hop Rising poster so I would go away ;)

This should be a Texas landmark!

Nice place, really unsuspecting craft beer place. Selection is nice, they stock some beer that Spec's and other places in town do not.

Owner of the store seems really nice and friendly too.

Its like a Spec's minus the wine/liquor/food selection and people with samples of cheap wine.

If you are looking for craft beer, this is a great place to check out.
