I rated this store based on what I've seen to be available in the DFW area and, apart from Central Market, you'd be hard pushed to find a better beer shop in DFW.

The beer selection is regularly updated so you're sure to find something new. You'll see everything from Asian Lagers to Belgian Ales, and a good mix of local brews too.

The staff is great. Sam has consistently pulled in the craft brews and pushed the "...Dude, I'm totally feelin' the hops..." charlatans to the far single fridge in the corner. The beer tastings on Sunday are good and usually feature four different styles.

I was really surprised, and relieved, to find this place when I moved to Duncanville from WA. It's worth checking out if you're in the DFW area.

This is my go-to beer store, and about the only place worth visiting in south Dallas county. Given the smallish size of the store, and the fact that many of the patrons in the area probably prefer a singe Colt 45 in a paper bag, it has a very nice selection of craft and import beers.

Service is great, and it's usually from the same fellow, though I admit I don't know his name. He's always eager to show off his latest beer aquisitions and is pretty good at making recommendations when you're just not sure what you want.

The selection is good, excellent for the area actually, but the quantities are sometimes small, which isn't a bad thing because you're almost always assured to get fresh product. If anyone is looking for an excursion to south Dallas, be sure and stop by. Much of the stuff is probably avalailable elsewhere, but there have been a few times (Real Ale Coffee Porter for example) where they get a new arrival before anyone else in the metroplex.

Highly recommended spot.

Looked this place up because I am visiting my brother here in Dallas. Saw that some reviewers said there was a good stock of local and regional brews that I was looking to imbibe.

The selection was exactly what I was looking for. When I explained to the fella I was from out of town and looking to taste many of the local brews, he let me mix and match a twelve pack.

This will now be my beer store when I come see my brother. If you live near here, go here. If you are visiting the South Dallas area, go here. Great service and good selection.

This is the beer store that I frequent the most. Living in southern Dallas County you are limited in the kinds of beer you can get. Most of the stores just offer BMC and malt liquor, but Hops and Grapes has a strong selection of micro brews and imports. The store carries most of the top Belgian's, as well as a number of beers from the UK and Germany. As far as American beers go, all of the major micro's (Stone, Rogue, Sierra Nevada, etc...) are available as well as the entire line of Texas micro's and some very good regional breweries like Boulevard, Left Hand and Oskar Blues.

The inventory turns over relatively often and you can usually count on two-three new beers each week. If the store doesn't have what you are looking for, they will order it for you.

The store also has a good selection of wine and does weekly wine and beer tastings. Wine at 6 p.m. on Thursday and beer at 1 p.m. on Sunday.

I visited this store last week and it was bit surprising to see all the different types of beer and wine they offer. They are more focused on microbrew and imported beer than the regular craps. They carry Chimay, Duvel, Maredsous, Gulden Draak, St. Bernardus, Leffe, Hoegaarden, Stella, Petrus, Samuel Adams,Samuel Smith, and so on. I was very happy to see this little store offering such a wide selection of beers and also their wine selection is decent. Their price was pretty reasonable too. Also the best thing they do is free wine tasting on every Thursdays and free beer tasting on every Sundays. All I can say my trip to this store was exceptional and I will go again when I need beers.

For such a small store, it actually has some pretty good selection. Some beers you might not expect: Konig Ludwig, Hoegaarden, Samuel Smith, etc. The staff is always willing to help. Maybe sometimes a little too willing.

Also has wine for sale. I think it just had a change in management, so far for the better. They have wine tastings every Thursday night and beer tastings every Sunday afternoon. You might want to check on the times.

It is well lit and clean. One of my biggest complaints is the selection on the mix-pack section. Usually it is pretty limited and has almost all mainstream beers. I was hoping for a little more selection. Overall a good place to go on that side of town considering the lack of stores.
