I love going to Sunrise, when I'm in the area. From the outside it looks like your typical gas station. Don't let that fool you!

Inside it has one of the best selections in the city. I also really like that they are so good about posting new releases on Twitter. Unfortunately, anything even resembling a limited release seems to result in distribution truck chasing and hoarding. So, it's nice when some place gives you a heads up and you can swing by and pick up what you want.

They are a little pricier than your big stores like HEB, Central Market and Specs, but it is a convenience store and I don't mind paying a little more to support the local guy.

Sam is also great to talk beer with, he's quick to help, he's quick to let you know if anything new has come in that day. I haven't been going there long enough, but I have multiple friends he's saved beers for or brought some out of his own stash for them.

Sam and the crew really, really know their brews. Sam doesn't even have to look up to point me in the right direction half the time. Always clues me in on new arrivals he knows I will like -- haven't been let down once. You can really tell he's into what he does.

I've seen him take reps from beer companies through the ringer -- there is a big emphasis on not stocking garbage brews here. Always welcoming and helpful.
