The real nice thing here is the grolwer filling station. Not the largest selection of taps, but almost always a few hidden gems. I just wish they had a twitter or facebook feed that had an updated list (or close to) of whatever beers are on tap.

The beer selection itself is pretty decent, though the Specs just down Hulen and Total Wine are a little better. The ability to create your six pack does give Central Market a nice advantage over Specs. If you are lucky, you can sometimes find harder to releases just sitting on the shelf, found three Abyss just sitting on the shelf, where as everywhere else had sold out of it already.

Central Market is the best place for me and my wife. We go here all the time to get food and quality beer. They make some of the best subs and nothing better but a good quality beer with that.
The beer selection here is the best I have found. I have spent so much money on the mix and match six packs that I am suprised that I have any money left. The beer variety is just amazing. it is beyond easy to drop 40 dollars here without a problem. I love trying new beers and if you feel the same, go here.

This is a busy place, and if you haven't been there before and don't know about the little passageways through some of the walls you will be walking all around the maze set-up of the store until you get to the beer and wine section like I did. Awesome selection of beers, especially local ones. Also, the staff (especially JR) was extremely helpful, and willing to make phone calls to reps and distributors if they couldn't answer a question. Like I said before, great selection of brews. Also, they have the availability of doing mix and match 6-packs, which is always helpful if you are uncertain of what you want, or if you are trying to sample the local fare. Prices were not that bad compared to other places I've been to purchase loose bottles. Definitely a safe stop if you are looking for Texas brews.

I rated the atmosphere low because of how insanely crowded CM can get. But, they have decent live music here on the weekends and good tastings and events. Always a go-to for Gelato after a good, spicy meal.
The food is of high quality,and the beer quality is good. They take care to keep fresh beers on the shelves and craft beers with great reputations.
The service is absolutely exceptional. They stay out of your way unless you look thoroughly confused or ask. Once you ask, they have a good knowledge of parings and the beer or wine itself.
The selection is good. Nothing outstanding. Always good Texas beer available as well as international and U.S. craft brews. No Sam Adams at all, though.
The food is good. It's easy to find a good paring for your beer and sit and chill with your selections.
Value is a bit pricey, but nothing out of sight. They seem to aim for the middle of the road craft sector. Very little BMC or rare/special brews.

Have been to this CM and the one in Austin many times over the years. It is our go to beer place primarily because we can also get other 'foodie' (damn I hate that term) items at the same time (e.g. various fresh baked bread, parmesan, high dollar cuts of meat).

Service is helpful if you ask, unobtrusive if you don't need it.

Selection is good but seems slightly less than what is available at the Austin location. Today found Southern Star Buried Hatchet, Gubna and Ten Fidy (but $15/4pk, damn), St. Arnolds, various Magic Hat (which A likes for some odd reason), Sierra Nevada, Brooklyn and even a couple of Mikkeller.
