Compared to the other places I visited in Dallas, this one simply doesn't measure up... Its got some quality brews... Just nothing different and nowhere near the variety of Keg and Barrels or Mr G's in Plano...the person behind the counter filed her nails the whole time I was there so service wasn't that great.. She didn't strike me as someone who would be able to help me anyway so no biggie...

They did have a mix and match sixer option which was nice and I took advantage of that with some nice local selections but given the choice, I'd go somewhere else...

Not bad at all, just not the best in the area...

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!

By Tom Thumb, it's easy to find, tons of parking.
The place is well kept, bright, wide aisles, and around 20 doors of Craft Beer goodness. Everything in coolers, easy to see, but I would recommend some light tinting to reduce potential light damage.
The selection is very impressive, scores of high quality beers and few of the "filler" brands to try and pump up the numbers.
Service was very good, offered help and were friendly.
The only drawback to all this selection is some concern on turnover of product. Some things were obviously dated, a few things were from at least a couple years ago, so you have to be smart about what you're getting. Smart picks on beers that will "age" well should allow you to get some gems (such as the Boxed Fuller's Vintage beers).

If you're in the area, this is an obvious beer stop.

I just found out about Las Colinas Beverage about a month ago, and ever since then they have been my go to beer store. I shop at every beer store in DFW, and Las Colinas Beverage is right up there with the best of them. They are still a fairly new beer store, so they are steadily increasing their stock with new beers. They seem to get all of the new/limited released beers, and are very reasonable on the price. The two guys that run the place (Nick & Rick) are very helpful, and know a bit about their beer. Very nice, and clean organized store, and keep all of their beer in coolers. Give them a lil more time, and they could be one of the top beer stores in DFW.

I went to this place not long after it opened and wasn't too impressed, but went in again on a whim tonight when driving past. I'm glad I did. This is just a fantastic beer store. Staff greet you when you come in but they're happy to let you browse - and it's a good selection for looking around. Quite a wide variety of styles represented. The mixed six fridge was great value but some of the bigger singles are pretty expensive - above bar prices in a couple of cases. But that's made up for elsewhere. It's not all strip lighting and boxes of Bud in here like so many other beer places - you can tell the guys running this place have thought long and hard about what to stock and where (and how) to store it. Great little store and I'll definitely be back soon.

Visited on 6/24/11 while in the Las Colinas area. Small store in an upscale neighborhood (as opposed to the rampant ghettos in Las Colinas) right next to a Tom Thumb in a shopping center.

Atmosphere was nice. Most other patrons were in search of a particular brew. A couple came in, grabbed their BMC, and left. High price to pay for BMC convenience over a grocery store next door.

The service was really good. Once my selection had been noticed, the beer/wine manager made a comment about good taste and mentioned a Texas craft beer tasting the following Friday. Once I was done selecting my beers, I was given his business card and he carried my $100+ of beer out to the car himself.

The selection is outstanding for the DFW area, and for the rest of the state with the exception of the Austin metro area. BMC is kept to one corner. A decent selection of wine is available. $4-$5 glassware of good quality is available. Huge dimpled steins, a Maudite tulip, Chimay goblet, and SA perfect pint are all available, plus others.

The prices are a bit high, but not out of line. It's nice to have that kind of a selection in one place. Worth the extra $$.
