This location is now a Specs, and is one of the smaller branches. Decent selection, but not worth stopping between DFW and Austin.

I found this place on a trip for work, and talked my co-workers into making a stop with me. The quality of the beers I've gotten were ok, nothing great, nothing bad. The folks seem nice enough, no real beer guru there, but we BA tend to pack our own knowledge. What drove me to add this place was the selection. About 4-5 standard coolers full of various micro and craft beers. It was the few surprises that really hit me. Most notable, I scored Sam Adams Triple Bock there, when I've never seen it on a shelf in Texas. I lowered the supply, but there were a good 5-6 bottles left (Early October, 2004). I also scored a couple Rogue-N-Berry (sorry, last two), again never seen on any other Texas shelf. Two examples of much older beers, but it makes me want to check other smaller liquor stores to see what they have "left over".
Some other odd beers in here, if you are local, worth checking out.
