So I was on a family trip to Galveston and had a chance to spend the day in Houston. I was eager to check this place out from the amazing reviews it has received. 

Alas, I was somewhat disappointed in the fact that I was expecting sheer awesomeness.  The vibe was like I walked into a head shop with loud stand up comedy on the big screen. No warm welcome or even an acknowledgment.

The selection was decent they had a few big beers but nothing too spectacular. The Belgian selection was sub par at best and besides a few Mikkeller's and Jester Kings there was nothing that I couldn't get back home in OK. Pricing was steep by a few bucks a bottle IMO. I paid $44 for two 750's and a 12oz single. Shockingly selling single 12oz run of the mill craft beer for $3.49. Outrageous!  

They did have a great selection of glass wear but the layout was confusing and unless I just missed it I saw no warm six packs. Too many beers in the cooler I don't really want a beer from the cooler.

All in all a decent experience but nothing breathtaking but for a mini mart it scores big points.  I can honestly say that this is no go to stop unless you want exclusives which you must have to ask for.

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.
