Great place to find craft beer in Houston. Superb single bottle collection which is great for trying things. The owner is good people, especially if you make yourself a regular. He consistently posts what he receives each day on Twitter, which I've also come to appreciate. The only thing that i noticed is they don't have Founders. I keep meaning to ask the own why...

Also, someone mentioned that this store is in a rough part of town. Clearly, that person isn't from Houston.

Houston is a more diverse and eclectic city then most other places (Dallas, OKC, NOLA, & San Antonio). D&Q is in a perfectly safe part of town where you have absolutely nothing to worry about other then finding all the beer you want to take home. : )

This place was an amazing find! Best place in H-Town to buy craft singles and special releases. Walked in for the first time, not knowing what to expect and ended up spending over an hour there! Once I was looking totally confused, the owner there(Brandon?) spent at least 20 minutes pointing out things he thought stood out to him and had no problem with me app scanning his choices for confirmation. In the end I walked out with 20 highly rated Biers and a definite sh*t eating grin I couldn't shake. This will DEFINITELY be a regular stop for me from now on ;)

There's a very good selection of craft beer They receive most of the releases (limited and standards), and many limited releases from craft brewers from across the US.

The owner is super cool and sold me one of his rare beers once because he sold out before I got there. Anytime I stop in for a rare beer, if he doesn't have it, I still buy something out of gratitude for this good service and selection.
