Dallas has few diversions other than eating, drinking and shopping.....and shopping does not interest us.
So we spend our time hopping from restaurant to restaurant and to every pub that we can find in search of the perfect meal and the perfect beer.

We randomly review restaurants and bars, dishes and beers at whim and give our brutally honest opinions of our findings. And while we concentrate on Dallas, we travel far and wide to sample cuisine from all regions of the country and beyond.

Which is the best beer store in Dallas?

Hmmm .... World Beer Company?  World of Beer in Arlington?  Central Market?  I must say that there really is not a store in the Dallas area with a great selection.  I had hopes when Spec's came to town but their selection is a great disappointment.  So in that vein, we were asked to pass this information along to you and having visited there before, I have a glimmer of hope. 

Good afternoon, Ending weeks of speculation, Total Wine & More is making an official announcement today that the popular retail chain will open its first superstore in Texas, at 9350 North Central Expressway in Dallas, in early summer.  Once open, Total Wine will offer the largest selection of wine, spirits and beer in the Dallas area, and residents will be treated to a shopping experience unlike any other.  The store itself will be a new generation concept for the company, unlike any other Total Wine location in the country.  And for beer- and wine-loving clubs and organizations, Total Wine will be an popular destination for its regular tastings, knowledgeable staff, and meeting space for private tastings and educational classes.  We thought you would like to be among the first to know of this exciting news.

  1. In an area the size of DFW, I'm not so sure a store with an overly incredible beer selection would be a good thing. When Spec's first opened, they managed to convenience the distributor to give them almost all the cases of Boulevard Bourbon Barrel Quad that were allocated to DFW. Normally, between my normal haunts of Kegs & Barrels, Mr. G's, and my hidden honey hole in Flower Mound, I would have been able to come up with a bottle. That kind of power is just wrong, that's why I'm no fan of Spec's. There's a great little store on Walnut Hill across Central from Spec's called Perry's. I didn't think much of it until I started talking to the owner. He had a couple bottles of DFH 120 Minute in the back that he sold me. Try finding that at any "Beer Superstore." Now that the changes to Dallas Liquor laws have brought the big boys to town, let's not forget the sheer joy of finding a great selection or a rare seasonal at the mom & pop beer store that has been on the corner for years.
