From the outside it looks like your typical gas station. It's located right off highway 121 on Glade Road in Colleyville. When you go inside you notice there is a large beer and wine section, with a small deli/grocery store in the back.

The selection here is absolutely incredible. I see beers that I haven't seen anywhere else. A lot of it is in six packs, and most of the singles are either in very large 750ml bottles, bombers, or other large sizes. Some of them are 11.2-12oz singles. Everything is refrigerated.

The major problem with this place is the prices. They absolutely rip you off. I didn't see one beer that was less than $2.50, and if you break a six pack you're probably going to pay $2.50-3.50 per bottle, even from a lower priced six pack. I even saw 12oz beers that aren't that special priced for around $10.

Overall, it's a good store. It has one of the best selections in the DFW area. If it wasn't for the horrible prices, I would consider going there more often, even though it isn't that close to me.

Excellent selection with everything currently available. Staff very helpful. Just a great place to stop by periodically to see what is new. They even announce new arrivals on line.

My go to beer store. I hit this place up at least once a week. They have the best craft selection within ten miles of my house and get tons of new beer in weekly. Keep on rocking, Hall's!

It only takes one employee to leave a bad taste in your mouth...

My wife purchased 8 bottles of kosher wine for Passover last Thursday. She asked the person who checked her out if she could return the leftover wine. She said no problem (obviously she and my wife missed the big sign on the door that said "All Sales are Final")...

Hall's may be one of the best supplier of wine and spirits in Colleyville, but if they can't take the time to train their employees to answer truthfully then I will simply take my business elsewhere.

Shame on us for not noticing the sign.... Bigger shame on Hall's for not educating us on our obvious oversight...

Been to this gas station/beer store only a couple times, as it's a little out of the way to be my go-to beer store. It always seems to carry that ONE beer that no one else in Fort Worth has. Good selection.

I heard about this store through posts on the BA forum that the beer-guy keeps updated. I've called up there several times and gotten some good help from him(ask for Fern, he's a good guy). Unfortunately, it's the times he's not there where the service was very lacking. Other employees there seem to be very uninterested in helping you find a particular beer and at times even rude when you ask a question. I could understand if the store was packed at the time, but the both times I've been, there were not very many customers around.

The prices are on the higher side of what I've seen at other stores closer to where I live. Which maybe why I generally only get that ONE, or two beers I came for. It's not ridiculously overpriced, just enough to pass on.

With it's selection, this store has the potential of being the place to go for things other than what I can't get elsewhere. They just really need to work on customer service.

*Updated 06-09-11: Seems they're doing a better job in the customer service dept. I've gotten less attitude, better help lately. "Service" ranking revised from 2.5 to 3.5.

*Updated 03-08-12: OK, seems there has been a 180 that has occured as far as customer service is concerned, since my initial review. Fern is still the man, but I've noticed others step up and have been very helpful(Jimmy, among others) in finding what I was in search of. Revised: "Vibe" from 3 to 4; "Service" from 3.5 to 4.5.

What's to say that hasn't been said? Well, the most recent review has it right - this place now sells liquor so things are quite different on the inside than they used to be. (I almost went into the wrong door, heh.) Selection is still good, but not as good as it was before, unfortunately. I was there today, & there was good stuff, but nothing really wacky that I hadn't seen elsewhere - & unfortunately they were out of what I'd gone there to look for anyway (d'oh).

Never tried the food - don't care to.

Yes, it's a gas station, beer/wine/liquor, deli, catchall, etc. Yes, it's still a little overpriced. Is it still the store w/ a good selection of craft beer that is closest to my home? You betcha. Best selection you'll find in the area, but if you're elsewhere in the metroplex, you can probably find a better store (especially in Addison / North Dallas / Plano) w/ as good or maybe even better selection, probably better service, & definitely better prices. I'll still hit it up when I'm too lazy to drive anywhere else, haha.

Edit: upped the service a half point. They do have a guy (Fern) who goes out of his way to let beer nerds know about the new stuff. But he's never there at the store when I am. Punk! Still though, it's definitely helpful, and we appreciate his efforts!

This store is very consistent. Sometimes the staff is very knowledgeable and helpful, other times the people seem completely disinterested/rude and know little to nothing about beer.

Until a few months ago, Hall's was always among the first stores in the Dallas area to get new beers and often times had beers that were nowhere else in the area. For example, they had Allagash Interlude, Black, Victor, Victoria, Four and Fluxus 2009 in stock for several months, while no one else outside of Houston and Austin has ever gotten any.

That being said, several months ago (Fall 2010) they remodeled the store and switched to also selling liquor. Since that time, business has seemed to really pick up - the store is always packed - but the selection has suffered. There are beers available in DFW that they now don't stock and others they get weeks after other stores. The selection is still very good, just not as good as it was before the switch to liquor sales. Also, the prices are among the highest in the Metroplex and they do not sell singles.

They also sell sandwiches in the deli, which are a little expensive, but pretty good nonetheless.

Well this place is very un-assuming.... a service station/convenience store, with a built in Deli, fresh goods grocery, and really impressive beer selection. You almost have to know it's there, or just happen upon it by accident. Really impressive selection of American micros (regionals and plenty from throughout this great land), Euros, and Belgians. They've got a little of everything, and sure to have something to suit your tastes. Although the staff is very friendly and generally helpful, if you need beer questions answered, you're probably going to be disappointed. Like I said, they're more likely to be able to answer your questions regarding Lotto tickets or how much gas you pumped. Very friendly though, so I'm definitely not complaining. If you happen to be around the DFW airport/mid-cities area, this is your place for fine brews.

My friend called me one day saying he found this Valero that had over 950 different varieties of beer. (my friend exaggerates...a lot.)
Just browsing I found a bunch of stuff that was still there but out of season, as others have said. I would use this place to find stuff that you absolutely cannot find somewhere else. It is a good "just in case" place. You can find some great beers here, but I was not able to find any of the 3 beers I was looking for. I was going to ask for help, but there was no one at the counter even with three people waiting in line.
This is an "exceptional" beer store, not the end all be all of beer stores however.

This was another great D/FW spot I went to this weekend. The selection was great and covered a great range of styles and a great variety of Texas brews. A fella' even took some time off from working on the shop to talk beer with me. Well, I might have been shopping just under his work area, but he was still very friendly. It seemed a bit pricey, but I suppose most things are when in a gas station.

Thanks to the metroplex thread int the SW forum, I had no problem finding the place. It is the Valero station right on the corner. It looks just like a gas station.

This store has the best beer selection I've found so far in my area. It has beer types that are impossible to find elsewhere. Even Central Market don't have some of the beers found here.
It is just short of a half hour drive for me but worth it when looking for the hard to find or the wilder high octane brews.

You can get gasoline, fire wood, propane, BBQ sandwich, and beer all in one stop. An unlikely place to find a nice selection of brews.
If your in the mid DFW area of Texas and need a selection, check it out.

If I could indulge myself for a moment. Nine years ago I used to live in Colleyville, TX. This was where I used to do my beer shopping from '95-'99. Then I moved back to MA and had not been back to Texas since. That changed this week as I had business in the Euless area. I got to visit some old places and decided to stop at Halls to bring a few bottles home. I was quite pleased to see this place noted on BA.

The selection of beer was pretty good. Lots of local Texas choices and some nice imported/Belgian offerings. Fairly good representation of Rogue and some of the other nationally recognized craft brewers.

Pricing was a little crazy. If you wanted a single.. Any single it was $4.50 Not really conducive to picking up some local stuff to bring home in the suitcase (truth be told I still bought some Rahr & sons and a Great Divide Oak Aged Yeti)

The help was pleasant but not really knowledgeable. I'd stop again if I were close but I wouldn't go out of my way to visit this location.

It was nice to see the old neighborhood again.

Hall's is awesome. It's disguised as a Valero gas station on the corner of Glade and 121. Their selection beats central market and is kept up-to-date. They get specialty and seasonal ales in regularly and will store or procure ale on request. They get a few cases of Dogfish Head 120-minute IPA each year, which fly out the door.

Hall's also allows you to break six-packs, but as the sign says, "It'll cost ya!". The service is excellent, the guys there are knowledgeable and the gentleman I spoke with was a bit of a beeradvocate himself. A bit more expensive than I'd like, but I'll be visiting again!

You will drive right by this place without any trouble at all. Despite reading the reviews that warned about this, I still did it! As soon as you exit 121 (if you are going south), it is immediately on your right. If you are heading north on 121 when you exit, you will cross back under 121 first, then it is on your right. It really does look like a gas station/convenience store.

Quality was fine, despite comments in other reviews. I did not have any issues with the beers I purchased and later consumed. I didn't see any inappropriate seasonals. There was no dust and all, or at least the vast majority, of the beer was in coolers. It is exposed to light, but that is more the rule than the exception.

Service was fine. I was greeted upon arrival and offered assistance while I wandered around. Upon checkout, the fellow made a few accurate comments about one of the beers I had picked out.

Selection was .... strange. It was probably the best I have seen in Texas, but only by a bit and it had some odd gaps. I have seen other stuff elsewhere that wasn't here. For example, other stores have larger offerings of Lagunitas and Stone. Real Ale was absent (this may not count, as I have only heard it is in DFW area). Overall though, certainly worth checking out.

Value seemed a bit pricier than some other places I have hit in Texas. Decide for yourself -- Westmalle Dub, $5.19/12oz, Westmalle Trip $5.49/12oz, GD Hercules $7.49/22oz, and Stone IPA $4.19/22oz.

I would certainly advise a visit if you are in the area, and especially if you are looking for something you are having a hard time finding elsewhere.

Well, after reading all the hype I decided to stop in and check this place out....high expectations in tow. First off I should have noted that it's a Valero gas station, because I kept driving back and forth looking for a farmer's market type place. As far as the selection goes, it is definitely up to the hype. There were easily numbers in the double figures of beers I've never seen anywhere else. That said, the irony is they didn't have any of the beers I specifically went there looking for (which Central Market did...since I went there right after). On top of that there was not a human in sight to ask about potential stock in the back. The one big caveat is that to me the selection is kind of suspect. I counted at least a half a dozen seasonal beers that were "in season" 6-8 months ago. All I could think of after that was....how old are the rest of these beers ? So, while the selection is interesting, and I'm sure I'll give it another look when I'm over that way...I certainly won't be rushing back, as I left empty handed and very much underwhelmed.

I guess I've always been aware of Hall's Grocery. My parents used to buy wine there back when its sale was still forbidden in our backwards little town, but it wasn't until I got into beer that I came to appreciate this unique place.

Follow the giant, phallic propane tank and you will find a gas station/plant nursery/deli/grocery/beer & wine mecca that is like no establishment you have ever set foot in. Upon entering, it is impossible to miss the astonishing variety of wines, but push past all that (after checking out the variety of beer glasses in the window) to the far wall and beneath the collection of guitars and neon beer lights you will find the real draw: cooler after cooler of the world's finest beers. Belgium, Germany, Britain, Japan, a fair assortment of Texas brews - I even saw a Latvian beer last time I was in there.

Now, there are a few knocks against the place. First off, while the service is friendly, they aren't always knowledgable and they only rarely make their way back to the beer section to answer questions. This is somewhat mitigated by the oddball collection of beer enthusiasts that are drawn to the place. Go in at the right time and you will probably meet someone who can teach you a little something about our favorite beverage. Also, the beer does seem to sit and gather dust longer than I'd prefer. All the more reason, of course, to spread the word and get more people shopping there. In addition, the prices are a bit higher than Central Market's and they don't really encourage breaking six-packs and mixing singles. Another complaint is the organization. Beers are generally arranged by brewery, but beyond that you are pretty much on your own as far as finding what you're looking for. This is an especially glaring oversight considering how well sorted the wine selection is (country, style, price). I found Westmalle in one cooler, Rochefort in the next, Orval another over, and Maredsous, St. Bernardus, and Koningshoeven around the corner. Why not put the Belgian beers (or Belgian-style beers, for that matter) in one place? Or how about a section dedicated to Texas beers? I'd really like to see Halls show as much respect for their beer as they do their wine.

While the Fort Worth Central Market may have lower prices and a slightly better selection, the convenience of Hall's will continue to make it my go-to beer store.

How to describe Hall's? It's not what you think. I don't care what you think, this isn't it. It is a self-described grocery store but its more of a combination gas station/nursery/convenience store/deli/farmer's market/tchochkie shop. From the street, it is a Valero gas station. Walk in and it looks like a taxidermist/rural bbq joint. Walk to the beer coolers and HOLY COW! This is not like any gas station you've ever been to. Selection is phenomenal for Texas and something beyond phenomenal for a gas station in an area that can't decides if its the boonies or suburban hell. (I can say that, I live in the suburbs.) The service is friendly and more knowlegable than the average gas station attendants, but no experts. Prices are a bit high but not ridiculous. The best part is the sign at the end of the coolers that indicates "More beer around corner". Mmmm....no better words in the English language than "more beer"...
