Imagine for a second that you’re leaving your home in Castle Hills and need to make a quick trip to your neighborhood liquor store to grab a bottle of wine and some vodka for a party. As soon as the door jingles and you peek inside, an unmistakable feeling comes over you as you realize this isn’t your everyday spirits store.
It’s bright, friendly, and the owners know your name. They greeted you the second you walked in and offered to help find a specific brand. And after ringing up your purchase, they followed with, “See you next time!”
Everything about the experience was perfect. And all you have to do to experience it again and again is visit Worth the Pour.
Worth The Pour is your friendly neighborhood liquor store in The Realm at Castle Hills. And judging by the overwhelming response from nearby residents, owners Michael and Brenda Reyes have succeeded in creating a store that bucks the impersonal style of other liquor stores you may have been relying upon over the years.
“We’ve had a great reception. These are our friends and neighbors, and the whole process couldn’t have happened and gone better than it has,” Michael said. “I figured it might take longer to get where we are today, but it didn’t. We love this community.”
Brenda agreed, saying the Castle Hills community has blessed them.
“We are everyone’s neighborhood store, and we love that,” she said. “There has to be a personal connection.”
And every bottle has to be worth the pour. Sure, they sell the typical stuff like Tito’s, Bacardi, Jack Daniels, and more, but they also have local crafts and specialized brands. Not sure what to get for your next gathering? Let Brenda or Michael help you decide. Don’t see what you’re looking for? They take requests all the time.
Worth the Pour also offers stemware, glassware, bar sets, personalized items, gift baskets, and a humidor. The facility is 3,000 square feet, including a 500-square-foot walk-in beer cave kept at 34 degrees for the coldest beer in town.
If you’ve been there already, you know exactly what they’re talking about.
“We knew this neighborhood was where we wanted to be,” Michael said. “It means everything to us.”
