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!
