This is definately the best place to find beer way out here in Katy...They have a great wine selection, cheese selection, beer selection, liquor selection...They have a really nice lay out so that everything is easy to find...The next best thing to driving all the way into Houston to go to their main location warehouse...My only complaint is that sometimes there are people that think they know everything about beer and when you kinda show them up on the knowledge, they get very defensive an opinionated which really bugs the hell outta me... :)

I visit Specs quite a bit in Katy. They have pretty much the largest selection of beers and wines in katy, and I can take my kids in here with me which is nice. My wife enjoys their wine selection which is impressive and regionally divided. Their non-refrigerated beer selection is quite extensive given the location. Not nearly as good as the downtown store, however, it is an ample way to quell my beer needs.

The service here is excellent. If you can't find something, someone will help you even without asking.

This is the Spec's I've been to most often. What really has peeved me in the past is the service. I've, on occasion, felt a bit patronized by the staff as I was taking my time, browsing about the bottles. I don't like that. On the other hand, I had one of the cashiers help me locate a hard to find beer at another location once, so that was appreciated.

The quality is overall good, and they seem to move stock pretty quickly. The selection is usually very good, but what I don't like is it seems that every few months or so, they make too many changes in the stocked beers. One day you'll see a certain beer, and a month or so later, you'll see it's been replaced with something else. I will say this: on my trip to Houston last month, this was the only Spec's where I saw the Aventinus Wiezen Eisbock.
