I just went to browse their selection and noticed they had some Palo Santo which I havent seen on Houston shelves since I discovered it at a bar awhile ago. I was worried about it getting hot in the car since i had to go back to work so the guy working there packed it carefully on ice for me.

Like others have said it looks like your standard convenience store on the outside but they have a large selection some of which specs doesnt have, or what i think happens is specs runs out of everything but since D&Q is off the beaten path they dont sell out as fast.

You will pay a premium, maybe $0.50 more for a hard to find bottle of craft beer but that is to be expected in an independant place like this. (708 characters)

This place was an amazing find! Best place in H-Town to buy craft singles and special releases. Walked in for the first time, not knowing what to expect and ended up spending over an hour there! Once I was looking totally confused, the owner there(Brandon?) spent at least 20 minutes pointing out things he thought stood out to him and had no problem with me app scanning his choices for confirmation. In the end I walked out with 20 highly rated Biers and a definite sh*t eating grin I couldn't shake. This will DEFINITELY be a regular stop for me from now on ;) (563 characters)

There's a very good selection of craft beer They receive most of the releases (limited and standards), and many limited releases from craft brewers from across the US. (167 characters)

The owner is super cool and sold me one of his rare beers once because he sold out before I got there. Anytime I stop in for a rare beer, if he doesn't have it, I still buy something out of gratitude for this good service and selection. (236 characters)
