This was another great D/FW spot I went to this weekend. The selection was great and covered a great range of styles and a great variety of Texas brews. A fella' even took some time off from working on the shop to talk beer with me. Well, I might have been shopping just under his work area, but he was still very friendly. It seemed a bit pricey, but I suppose most things are when in a gas station.

Thanks to the metroplex thread int the SW forum, I had no problem finding the place. It is the Valero station right on the corner. It looks just like a gas station.

This store has the best beer selection I've found so far in my area. It has beer types that are impossible to find elsewhere. Even Central Market don't have some of the beers found here.
It is just short of a half hour drive for me but worth it when looking for the hard to find or the wilder high octane brews.

You can get gasoline, fire wood, propane, BBQ sandwich, and beer all in one stop. An unlikely place to find a nice selection of brews.
If your in the mid DFW area of Texas and need a selection, check it out.

How to describe Hall's? It's not what you think. I don't care what you think, this isn't it. It is a self-described grocery store but its more of a combination gas station/nursery/convenience store/deli/farmer's market/tchochkie shop. From the street, it is a Valero gas station. Walk in and it looks like a taxidermist/rural bbq joint. Walk to the beer coolers and HOLY COW! This is not like any gas station you've ever been to. Selection is phenomenal for Texas and something beyond phenomenal for a gas station in an area that can't decides if its the boonies or suburban hell. (I can say that, I live in the suburbs.) The service is friendly and more knowlegable than the average gas station attendants, but no experts. Prices are a bit high but not ridiculous. The best part is the sign at the end of the coolers that indicates "More beer around corner". Mmmm....no better words in the English language than "more beer"...

Talk about a mysterious place... Hall's Grocery Store is very hard to pin down. And unless you are a local, it's very difficult to stress how odd this place really is.

Hall's is a gas station, not really a grocery store. I have actually driven past this place more than once without ever knowing what lay within. Now that I know, I am even more intrigued.

The beer selection at Hall's is just tremendous...easily the best in the area. And although I have heard the prices are higher than Central Market and Mr. G's, they aren't that much higher. Most of the beer is in coolers.

The staff is your typical gas station attendants so don't expect any expert advice. This fact just increases the mystery of Hall's...who exactly decided to create this beer paradise out in the middle of nowhere?

I have no idea. And I don't care.

Bless you fellow BAs, BLESS YOU!
I would have NEVER found this little beer shrine without your help.
It's a gas station! Not really shabby, but not up to the ritzy area it's in. The selection was impressive, had to be in the area of 200 beers to choose from. Prices weren't great, but not outrageous. They let you take singles, but charge you $2 a bottle that way (I think I got a break given the price of a 6 of Old Foghorn). Staff was friendly but I would trust your gut over recommendations. I found a Magnum of Anchor Christmas 2003 in the window for $14 that I had to rescue. A great beer like that shouldn't be left in the sun to die, and I'm expecting some damage, but that was the only case of bad storage I really noted. Hate to share this, but I scored a couple Unibroue 10's there as well. Overall a great beer buying experience.

You will drive right by this place without any trouble at all. Despite reading the reviews that warned about this, I still did it! As soon as you exit 121 (if you are going south), it is immediately on your right. If you are heading north on 121 when you exit, you will cross back under 121 first, then it is on your right. It really does look like a gas station/convenience store.

Quality was fine, despite comments in other reviews. I did not have any issues with the beers I purchased and later consumed. I didn't see any inappropriate seasonals. There was no dust and all, or at least the vast majority, of the beer was in coolers. It is exposed to light, but that is more the rule than the exception.

Service was fine. I was greeted upon arrival and offered assistance while I wandered around. Upon checkout, the fellow made a few accurate comments about one of the beers I had picked out.

Selection was .... strange. It was probably the best I have seen in Texas, but only by a bit and it had some odd gaps. I have seen other stuff elsewhere that wasn't here. For example, other stores have larger offerings of Lagunitas and Stone. Real Ale was absent (this may not count, as I have only heard it is in DFW area). Overall though, certainly worth checking out.

Value seemed a bit pricier than some other places I have hit in Texas. Decide for yourself -- Westmalle Dub, $5.19/12oz, Westmalle Trip $5.49/12oz, GD Hercules $7.49/22oz, and Stone IPA $4.19/22oz.

I would certainly advise a visit if you are in the area, and especially if you are looking for something you are having a hard time finding elsewhere.

Hall's is awesome. It's disguised as a Valero gas station on the corner of Glade and 121. Their selection beats central market and is kept up-to-date. They get specialty and seasonal ales in regularly and will store or procure ale on request. They get a few cases of Dogfish Head 120-minute IPA each year, which fly out the door.

Hall's also allows you to break six-packs, but as the sign says, "It'll cost ya!". The service is excellent, the guys there are knowledgeable and the gentleman I spoke with was a bit of a beeradvocate himself. A bit more expensive than I'd like, but I'll be visiting again!

Well this place is very un-assuming.... a service station/convenience store, with a built in Deli, fresh goods grocery, and really impressive beer selection. You almost have to know it's there, or just happen upon it by accident. Really impressive selection of American micros (regionals and plenty from throughout this great land), Euros, and Belgians. They've got a little of everything, and sure to have something to suit your tastes. Although the staff is very friendly and generally helpful, if you need beer questions answered, you're probably going to be disappointed. Like I said, they're more likely to be able to answer your questions regarding Lotto tickets or how much gas you pumped. Very friendly though, so I'm definitely not complaining. If you happen to be around the DFW airport/mid-cities area, this is your place for fine brews.
