I have visited here a couple of times when in corpus to see my brother and my girlfriend's family.

The beer here doesn't seem to be old at all. Some of the shelves seem to run low, and anything that is getting old seems to go on sale.

It seems that most HEBs have wine experts but not true beer experts. However, they are always helpful when you want to find something or have a question about the availability of a beer.

Selection is what it can be. With the mass amount of hispanic people in south texas that drink budweiser and bud light only, craft beer selection can be limited. And no, I'm not racist, it's just how it is.

This HEB had a well above average offering for a grocery store. This place sectionalized the beer aisles. The Bud and Miller swill is on one side of the aisle, while the micros and imports are on the other. There seemed to be more of a focus placed on the micros and imports compared to the always popular swill.

The Selection - Domestic 6pck: this HEB mostly carries the "readily available" craft/micros. They got a good selection from Abita, Brooklyn Brewery, New Belgian, Sam Adams, Flying Dog, and the like. Also, they carry some stuff from Rogue and Stone. There is a good representation of Texas beers such as, Real Ale, St. Arnold's, and Shiner. HEB also placed a few pseudo micros like Killian's, Blue Moon, and Shock Top on the same aisle.

The Selection - Imports 6pck: This has the usual line up of imports, Paulaner, Beck's, New Castle, Guinness, etc. They do have a rather large amount of Mexican beers available. The import section is rather uneventful - there is nothing a real beer drinker has not seen before.

Single Bottle Selection: they carry some Belgians, such as Chimay and Maredsous, and a few from Belhaven. I liked their selection of Rogue and Stone. To me this is one of this stores better features.

They do have a mix-and-match section. However, I didn't think it was worth it. They charge per beer bottle and to me it seems overpriced.

This is a grocery store, so don't expect beer knowledgeable service.

Overall, this is a good place to stop by if you are on your way or coming back from the Island/beach. It is a grocery store first and foremost that just so happens to have a decent selection of beers.

OK so I went here during my trip to Corpus Christi. They had a nice beer selection compared to ours here in LA. I saw some New Belgium, Stone, St. Arnold, Real Ale and other craft beers not available to us in New Orleans which is cool. They don't allow you to mix and match which kind of sucks. They do sell some single bottles although they were all bombers and 750s. Prices were in line with average grocery stores prices. Nice place though. Kind of in line with Publix in Florida regarding overall quality.
