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.

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...

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.

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 $$.

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!!
