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!

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 $$.

Ok guys this is a regular stop for me. I am a serious hop head and they have more options than any other store I have found in the DFW area. I get excited evertime i see all the different types of beer. Everytime they ask me if i need help finding anything specific, and evertime all im doing is just taking it all in, seeing what all is there. They have so many options. And I love their IPA cooler sections.

They know their stuff, they are spot on with their reccomendations. I love talking with them both. Super friendly and we always end up talking beer and sports. love it. The store is super clean and probobly has close to maybe 20 coolers of imports and craft brews.

They have everything and then some. They have a pick your six, six pack option which is really nice. They also have those rare brews and imports that are hard to get anywhere. If it is in Texas they will get it in their store.

They also have a top selection of wine in there. and they always have some bottles open for tasting. Also saki. They have good knowledge on wine as well if you happen to be in the mood for it or you're doing some kind of entertaining.

They also have a top notch cigar shop in house. Super selection. I reccomend anyone in the DFW area taking a trip out to Las Colinas Beverage. Very nice, good looking, well put together store, with two classy beer and sports fans running the place. Do yourself a favor beer fans and go by and see Nick and Rick over at the LC.

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.

My wife and I made the pilgrimage from Rowlett all the way over to Las Colinas Beverages because it was the only place in DFW that I knew carried Dogfish Head's limited "Red & White".

Upon arrival my wife and I were greeted by the owner and he was more than happy to help us out in what we were looking for.

Their selection is very well laid out and kept in closed door coolers. We were able to pick up several Dogfish Head seasonals as well as my favorite (as a California expat), ANCHOR STEAM OLD FOGHORN! Needless to say it was well worth the trip to get to Las Colinas Beverages.
