Notes:
This is a department store, not a real beer / liquor store, but with a solid wine and spirits section. Luckily, it has some good beer for sale too.

another department store from the capital city (chilangolandia); its liquors department new for me; poor and a couple of german brands etc; in other times carrefour got a spectrum of 50 different beers in its liquor department; ubicated in the financial district of the city, san pedro garza garcia; el palacio de hierro is a rename store; the same german beers are in the others stores; a little convenience stores got the brands of diageo like loewenbrau, guinness, franziskaner wheat, etc; i think again if i can buy beers from this store;

customer service is good; quality Ok; selection is poorest.

This place is a huge high income department store, with a more than stocked gormet section: Top notch wines, pretty big name liquors and spirits, wonderful charcuterie, hard to find spices and a few beers.

They offered from the beggining Guinness, 2-3 Unibroue's and Potro.

Just last week they expanded to three beers from Cervecera Mexicana; five Paulaner's and the 3 from Unibroue remain.

One of the clerks told me that the gourmet manager said that, contrary to the house policy, they will stock up some more brands and styles due to good sales of Potro, Maudite and Fin du Monde.

Although selection right now is poor, it still remains as one of the best offerings in town while prices are reasonable for imports.

¡Salud!
