The wife and I were going for a beer at The Hay Merchant and right across the street I saw this Spec's. Decided to go in without expecting much.... and oh wow!

A mighty fine selection of craft beer here, immediately to the right as you enter. Some of the names I saw here include Founders Rubaeus, North Coast Old Stock, Breckenridge Imperial Chocolate Stout, nine (9!) different Dogfish brands including Palo Santo and 61, seven Sixpoints and Brooklyn Monster (first time I see it in Texas). Also Harpoon Leviathan series and the Stone collaboration 12-oz bottles. All of these beers are on room-temp shelves but also available cold from large coolers by the wall.

Lots of good bombers as well, including pretty much the whole Dogfish line-up, six different Lips of Faith, Boulevard Smokestack and Clown Shoes Very Angry Beast (barrel-aged imperial stout). From the Houston area, beer from Karbach, Buffalo Bayou and Cornel's.

I didn't see a beer guy out on the floor but service was nice enough at the registers. Definitely a great beer store near some great beer bars.
