The Cellar on University in Odessa between 336&JBS Parkway- amazing craft selection, the best in the area!

HEB - 2 Locations in the Midland:  and on 42nd in Odessa

Market Street & Albertsons - multiple Midland and Odessa locations. Market Street has the better selection

Pinkie's- Multiple locations in the area. The Midkiff Rd store in Midland and the JBS Parkway store in Odessa seem to have more beers than their other locations.

The Beer Garden - On Highway 80 (business 20 for you West Texas noobs) east of the airport, close to A-1 mobile homes. Great tap selection, with plans to expand to 50 taps. This is the only place in the are that fills growlers. They are an open-air beer garden in a landscape nursery. They have a heated tent for those bad weather evenings.

The Hemingway - Cigar bar with locations in Midland and Odessa, good craft on tap, laid back atmosphere.

The Blue Door - Loop 250 and Garfield in Midland - cocktail lounge, solid selection of craft beer with frequent new additions

The Humidor of West Texas - University between JBS and 338 in Odessa. This is a BYOB Cigar Bar next door to The Cellar. They are very supportive of the club.

Restaurants: (click here for our Google maps restaurant list)

Grub Burger - Loop 250 and Midland Drive in Midland- gourmet burgers and a great beer selection.

Basin Burger - Colorado and Louisiana in Midland- another great burger joint with a decent beer selection.

Cork and Pig - HWY 191 between Billy Hext and 588 in Odessa- craft beer, good pizza, and a great steak.

Buffalo Wild Wings - On Grandview in Odessa and Wadley in Midland. Wings, beer, and more TVs than you can watch. Midland location now non-smoking.

Carino's - Chain restaurant with over 50 beers on tap. Some good stuff here

Did we miss your favorite spot? Add it to the comments and if we like it too, we'll add it to the list.


  1. Any suggestions as to a good spot to get a CO2 tank refilled? (especially one that won't make me exchange my shiny pretty aluminum tank for a dirty steel one :) )

  2. The Albertsons on Wadley and midland drive is under construction but being converted to a market street. I was in there yesterday and they have a wide selection of Karbach and Lakewood. Also Little Woodrows has over 50 beers on tap as well as a good bottle selection. Loop 250 and Holiday Hill Rd.
