By Tom Thumb, it's easy to find, tons of parking.
The place is well kept, bright, wide aisles, and around 20 doors of Craft Beer goodness. Everything in coolers, easy to see, but I would recommend some light tinting to reduce potential light damage.
The selection is very impressive, scores of high quality beers and few of the "filler" brands to try and pump up the numbers.
Service was very good, offered help and were friendly.
The only drawback to all this selection is some concern on turnover of product. Some things were obviously dated, a few things were from at least a couple years ago, so you have to be smart about what you're getting. Smart picks on beers that will "age" well should allow you to get some gems (such as the Boxed Fuller's Vintage beers).

If you're in the area, this is an obvious beer stop.

My wife and I made the pilgrimage from Rowlett all the way over to Las Colinas Beverages because it was the only place in DFW that I knew carried Dogfish Head's limited "Red & White".

Upon arrival my wife and I were greeted by the owner and he was more than happy to help us out in what we were looking for.

Their selection is very well laid out and kept in closed door coolers. We were able to pick up several Dogfish Head seasonals as well as my favorite (as a California expat), ANCHOR STEAM OLD FOGHORN! Needless to say it was well worth the trip to get to Las Colinas Beverages.

I just found out about Las Colinas Beverage about a month ago, and ever since then they have been my go to beer store. I shop at every beer store in DFW, and Las Colinas Beverage is right up there with the best of them. They are still a fairly new beer store, so they are steadily increasing their stock with new beers. They seem to get all of the new/limited released beers, and are very reasonable on the price. The two guys that run the place (Nick & Rick) are very helpful, and know a bit about their beer. Very nice, and clean organized store, and keep all of their beer in coolers. Give them a lil more time, and they could be one of the top beer stores in DFW.

Compared to the other places I visited in Dallas, this one simply doesn't measure up... Its got some quality brews... Just nothing different and nowhere near the variety of Keg and Barrels or Mr G's in Plano...the person behind the counter filed her nails the whole time I was there so service wasn't that great.. She didn't strike me as someone who would be able to help me anyway so no biggie...

They did have a mix and match sixer option which was nice and I took advantage of that with some nice local selections but given the choice, I'd go somewhere else...

Not bad at all, just not the best in the area...

I'm in the area for work. I'm trying to find a place to get good beer. There are a lot of places that have beer. There are even a fair number with 20 doors (their way of counting things) of beer. Las Colinas doesn't appear to have 20 doors of beer. What they do have is good beer. A lot of it for the area.

First thing I heard about them was that they try to have every beer you can get in Texas. Second thing was that they're expensive. As for the first item it looks like they have every one of the beers I saw in 8 other stores today and then some. A big plus. As for the second item, well, yeah, it's true. But, you know, you can't do mixed 6 packs in any of the other stores. Is that worth $1.50 for that mixed 6? Absolutely. Is it worth $2 more for Fuller's Vintage? Prolly not.

But, hey, it's a nice shop - looks like it's brand new in a nice and new shopping center (the one with the Tom Thumb). Easy to find (I made it there on oral directions). Very nice inside - clean, clear, bright, nice high ceilings, wine open at the front for tasting, happy and helpful people working the desk.

And, frankly, I really do want to insist on the fact that it was a nice looking shop. That makes me want to go back. Well, that and the mixed six packs and good selection and helpful staff. Since almost everything is in the cooler there's a lot less to worry about in terms of spoilage that with other shops. No, really, I'd shop there.
