Stopped by this place while helping my girlfriend move to an apartment no less than 2 blocks away.
No complaints about the service; granted, no one is going to come up and help you unless you ask for it, but the cashier was very friendly and knew her beer. Great selection, with a huge variety of singles and bombers at reasonable prices. Sixers available too. Has pretty much everything you can find at a Spec's or Central Market, but the one distinction that sets apart D&Q (and helped me adjust my "selection" rating) is the glassware. At least 50 different glasses from various breweries, multiples of each, and the best part? They're all $3 apiece. I happily gobbled up a Houblon Chouffe tulip, a Duchesse de Bourgogne goblet, and a Great Divide tulip, and will return to buy some more soon.
Beer prices are a bit more expensive than CM or Spec's, but that's to be expected given D&Q's small market status. Besides, the cheap glassware more than makes up for it. Great little neighborhood beer shop, and one I'll be sure to frequent again...

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.
