This is a gigantic liquor store, but a lot of beer space is wasted on tons and tons of BMC. The coolers filled with 24 packs of Bud Light from top to bottom with the sign "premium" above it really crack me up. The best things about this store are the prices overall and the majority of the beer is refrigerated. I saw a few six packs that I havenít seen elsewhere in town, but nothing that really piqued my interest. There werenít any rarities and the bomber selection is kind of limited, but you will be able to find something worthwhile.

Humungous store. Although it seems like a disproportionate amount of the beer space is spent on 24-pk and 30-pk of Bud/Miller/Coors products. Decent selection of craft beer, but you would think they could do better based on the size of the store.

The store is huge! Aside from being big, the selection was a bit of a let down. A store this size you would expect to find anything and everything, but the selection was mostly mainstream (common) items spread out in 5-10 facings to appear like a full stock. Nice walk-in humidor. Has a tasting bar with kitchen, but when there it was full of sales people and looked like it was more of an office than a tasting spot. The prices were pretty good I have to say, but again common items only. The service was not the best either, but worth a stop.

Though the store is lacking in really anything rare, there is a huge selection of six packs, bombers, and 750ís.

I am not sure why people are bashing this place. Sure, service is non-existent but who honestly needs help bottle shopping? Not me. ALL the beers are refrigerated, which is something you donít see very often. I thought the selection was decent, which included Belgians and European beers. They carried all the regional breweries, including some limited release stuff. They had a respectable west coast showing as well, including Russian River, Lost Abbey, Deshcutes, Stone, etc. Is it worth the trip from Denver out to Thorton? Of course not, but I was staying with friends in Erie and I was glad that we did not have to make a long drive to find great beer. So itís located in a strip center. Big f***ing deal. Many liquor stores are.

Huge building and not even fully used yet. Decent selection, cheaper prices than most Denver/Boulder stores, wine and port sale prices were impressive. Seems the beer selection has expanded immensely since the last reviewerís visit. Thornton sucks and this place is located next to a huge collection of Home Depot/Walmart strip mall type stores and the fat suburbanites crowding the aisles suck.

Itís big, but itís really not *that* big. Far from the biggest in the world, Iím sure. Square footage does not equal good selection, regardless. Lots of wasted space too. Wide aisles are nice for avoiding other shoppers, but thereís so much room in here for more product, one has to assume they are waiting until they get enough cash flow to justify it. Itís not a good location, after all, so I could see this place drying up and blowing away. Their beer department just plain SUCKS...four or five doors of singles, maybe ten of six packs. And nothing particularly sought after that I canít find equally well elsewhere (and in more predictable condition...the í07 Saison Dupont I bought here was slightly skunked already). Big disappointment based on the size of the place. The only reason to drive out to this rather remote place? Liquor. Best prices Iíve seen, easily. Bigger selection than most on that point too, but still a bit short of amazing. The wine department is ho-hum...reasonably large selection, but Iíve definitely seen better. I just knew their website flaunting the size would end up resulting in disappointment, and so it has. But yeah, Iíll be back when I want to stock up on the hard stuff. My scores are based on the beer alone, though, considering this *is* a beer rating site.

Large open liquor store with roomy aisles and well lit. The service is fairly good, especially from the beer manager. The selection is decent, but not much better than Total Bev.( Why canít more liqour stores be like Liquormax!) Overall not a bad place to shop if it wasnít in the middle of nowhere.
