September 2007 update:
This store has changed hands, now owned by someone who appears to care little about beer. Beer selection is rapidly disappearing as old stock is sold off and nothing is bought to replace it. Though if you want confederate flag merchandise or Night Train fortified wine, this is your store.

March 2005 edit:
A nice little store in a rural east Texas town.

When I was attending East Texas State University (now Texas A&M Commerce) in the early 90s, this store was a Red Colemans (the Dallas liquor chain) and had a fabulous selection of US micros, as well as Belgian, English and German beers available in Texas at the time. Red Coleman's sold it around 1996, and its now on its 3rd owner since then, and has gotten back to serving good craft beers. The selection is low compared to the better stores in Dallas, but it's definitely the best store within a 45 mile radius. At other stores in town, it's difficult to find anything more than Fat Tire or Guinness, when it comes to craft beers.

The store carries about a dozen different US micros, and perhaps 15 different European brands, tending toward the German (I was particularly delighted to find Weihenstephaner hefeweiss there). The only Belgian I saw was Hoegarden, though they've also got some New Belgium beers and Celis white. The owner of the store is also quite willing to special-order beers, even going so far as to drive to Dallas for beers not distributed in Commerce, TX.

If you're in Sulphur Springs, Greenville, Cooper, or one of the other towns in the area, and are despairing of finding anything worth drinking, this little store is well-worth a visit.
