Specs, World Market, and HEB are the only real places to get beer in this city. Specs being the best by far; but they don't allow you to build your own six pack, which WM and HEB do.
I began trying craft beer due to this option of building your own six pack, thus I do appreciate HEB's effort.
The selection is pretty decent too. They offer St. Bernardus Abt. 12, Ovila Dubbel, Affligem Triple, among others. Atmosphere, food, and service are standard to any large scale grocery store, but its a nice place to pick up some beers if you don't feel like doing any extra driving.

So why is a grocery store added to a beer forum? This is due to their wider than normal selection. Of course they have the standard tailgating beers and the normal imports but this HEB does carry other great choices. To give you a taste of what I have found there over the past few months here is a brief list:

Wells Banana Bread Beer
Murphy's Irish Stout
Ovila Abbey Dubbel
Buried Hatchet Stout

They have a decent amount of turnover as well so there is generally something new to try. I am not sure about the selection at other HEB stores but I have a feeling the selection is localized to this store.
