Central Market is sort of like a Dallas-born Whole Foods. Huge store with all sorts of goodies (I particularly enjoyed the cheese selection and the low-priced, high-quality veggies).
As far as beer goes, though, this place won't have you writing yo mama to tell her how you fell in love with the selection.
Brews are located in the wine section, and I stress this because there is more wine than there is beer. A big long cooler carries a bunch of Texas brews, some good Belgium and German imports and the occasional sort-of-rarity like Dogfish 61 and a couple of Boulevard beers. Plus all the usual suspects like Stone, New Belgium and Sam Adams.
They sell every one of their bottles (but not their cans) as singles (you can break six-packs, basically) so that is extra coolness in their part. But- I don't know that you'll be tempted to break any packs here.
A helpful beer guy stopped by and asked me if I had any questions, which I appreciate. A little customer care is always nice.
I won't be coming back here to buy beer as there are many better options around the city of Dallas, but their food is worth a repeat visit and three.

So perhaps for Dallas this is a great stop, but if youre from out of town I wouldn't go here. They don't have a lot of local breweries (they have some). They had theobroma which I almost bought but decided I probably wouldnt like it that much especially for the price.
Service was okay, the guy stayed around longer than I wouldve liked. I didnt really need to know anything except the prices on the singles (none were marked) but he was just trying to be helpful.
Prices were normal. Some were cheaper, some the same.
