I'm in the area for work. I'm trying to find a place to get good beer. There are a lot of places that have beer. There are even a fair number with 20 doors (their way of counting things) of beer. Las Colinas doesn't appear to have 20 doors of beer. What they do have is good beer. A lot of it for the area.

First thing I heard about them was that they try to have every beer you can get in Texas. Second thing was that they're expensive. As for the first item it looks like they have every one of the beers I saw in 8 other stores today and then some. A big plus. As for the second item, well, yeah, it's true. But, you know, you can't do mixed 6 packs in any of the other stores. Is that worth $1.50 for that mixed 6? Absolutely. Is it worth $2 more for Fuller's Vintage? Prolly not.

But, hey, it's a nice shop - looks like it's brand new in a nice and new shopping center (the one with the Tom Thumb). Easy to find (I made it there on oral directions). Very nice inside - clean, clear, bright, nice high ceilings, wine open at the front for tasting, happy and helpful people working the desk.

And, frankly, I really do want to insist on the fact that it was a nice looking shop. That makes me want to go back. Well, that and the mixed six packs and good selection and helpful staff. Since almost everything is in the cooler there's a lot less to worry about in terms of spoilage that with other shops. No, really, I'd shop there.

I can't believe it took me this long to review LCB since I am a regular customer. The beer selection and pricing is on par with the best stores in the DFW metroplex, but LCB is bigger and laid out better so the browsing experience is more enjoyable. The owner exemplifies great customer service, treats his regulars like gold, and will even help carry your purchase out to your car. They offer a few different monthly beer and wine clubs and you can use your membership card for 10% or 15% off all purchases at any time. LCB is just as passionate about their wine as they are their beer, and all of the employees can help guide you to great selections of either one.

Las Colinas Beverages is a must visit if you are around this area.

A- Clean and easy to shop comfortably

Q- The owner makes sure that he always has great brews that are not always easy to find

S- The best service that you can find. Helpful without being over bearing. The owner will walk around and help you find whatever you want or turn you to new things that are great. He turned me on to Deep Ellum IPA which is now my go to beer whenever shopping for 6 packs.

S- Great selection even though it is not a huge store

V- A little expensive, but in line with the cost of living in Las Colinas which is a nice area

Overall- This is a must stop if you want to find a true craft beer shopping experience. The owner and staff are great. They have a beer club and email list which even though I am not a part of, due to the distance from my house, is great. BMC only has a small corner in the back. 80% of the selection is craft. Awesome!!

I discovered Las Colinas Beverage one day by accident about a year ago, and was immediately hooked. Their staff and owner are true experts in beer, and are always friendly. The place has a neighborhood vibe, with known customers stopping by routinely to see what came in.

The selection is deep, and often has beers that cannot be found anywhere else in the Metroplex - impressive given the number of high quality establishments that have opened up in the area.

Truly a hidden gem, and worth the trip from anywhere in the DFW area.

Excellent owner and staff! Willing to do just about anything for customers (especially - SURPRISE for loyal customers)! They have regular tastings, a weekly email of new offerings and occasional special events. If you live in the area – get on the email list. They can order kegs for you. They get excellent selections even of very limited productions. Ask the staff and they will either have tried or are willing to try something new. No beer snobbery, just straight up knowledge, service and friendliness. I drive there from Carrollton, pay a little extra compared to a bigger chain, get what I want and have a great experience. The definition of value!

Feeling a little depressed beer wise moving from Philly to Dallas. I was so happy to happen upon this place.

Next to the Tom Thumb in Las Colinas- this tiny little store is stocked with all kinds of fun beers to try plus new releases and carrying all the essentials. Plus the owners are great, knowledgeable and fun to talk to.

I admit it is nice to be able to buy beer at the grocery store but the selection is usually pretty mediocre. Here I can find all my old Philly favorites even Monk's Cafe Sour and other small production finds.

Although slightly more expensive, I would support this little store any day over the giants next door!
