Big store but I had expected a lot more selection. Did not seem to have a big selection of local craft seasonals and specials and not even the full range of many Colorado brewers.

Too many liquor stores and not enough time nor money.

(this place has certainly grown on me - a decent amount of imports, but not as much as the big stores in the burbs - fairly high turn over - frequent sales - they donít get "everything" new that is worth getting, but they do a decent job) Huge store in the Capitol Hill area of town - mostly focused on things besides beer, and the beer coolers, while they take up a big chunk of the store, are mostly filled with macros - a decent, but not entirely extensive selection of micros - a smattering of imports on one tiny section of shelving in the store (ie. import selection needs work) - kind of unimpressive, especially considering its size - the guy selling barbecue ribs in the parking lot made things a lot better, though - we need a better bottle shop downtown.

Large building, with a wide selection of liquor and wine. Beer selection was good, but not great. Got a couple bombers that are hard (but not impossible) to find locally. Friendly staff, decent prices.

Decent US micro selection but not comprehensive. Some warm, some cold. Belgian selection needs work. Prices average with a few surprising sales noticed.

Very liquor/wine centric store in a seemingly recently renovated building. You have to search for the micros, which consist of a few shelves of singles on an oddly placed shelving system and in a few coolers in the back right corner. Was able to get some Pliny and other "not in Cincinnati" beers. Very good staff. I really enjoyed the place.

I used to live near this place, and was certainly my regular big purchase liquor store. As others have mentioned, this place is great for wine and booze, less so for beer. Beer selection is hit or miss, and is scattered throughout one side of the store. The help is attentive, though not terribly knowledgeable about beer. In the past, this place was a real dump, but they recently opened a brand new store next to the old one, and its quite nice now. This place is OK, but it could, and should, be great.

76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

I live a few blocks from this place. (Iím not off-put by the neighborhood either :) For all the hype - mostly from wine and hard liquor drinkers - I was a bit disappointed. The first time I went, they were wiped out of a lot of decent beer. But, I broke a bottle of Kameliet and they didnít yell at me, so I decided to go back. Iíve hit the store on some good days and found some mid- to higher-range stuff. There are better beer stores in a half-hour radius. Total Beverage in Westminster is pretty phenomenal.

Iíd read about the Argonaut before visiting Denver. Denver is the home of the Great American Beer Fest, has a brewer for a mayor, and (I think) only sells beer stronger than 3.2% ABV in liquor stores. With all that said, I expected Denver liquor stores to be amazing, and I was disappointed. I wasnít off-put by the neighborhood, but I was at the store around 11am on a Saturday. The store had its own lot (so you donít have to park on the street), and I was impressed when I walked in; it seemed clean and pretty big ~ 3000 sq ft. Unfortunately, that space wasnít filled with beer. The store seemed very wine- and liquor-centric. A few macro-beers, but very little in the way of craft. I was visiting from the mid-west and was hoping to find not just CO micros, but also beers from CA, OR, & WA that I couldnít get back home. Other than the presence of craft beers located nearby (Breckenridge, Odell, Avery) in the cooler, I was disappointed. On a positive note, Tomís Diner (across the street on Colfax) was good and cheap breakfast eats though.

If this qualifies as a good beer store then Florida must be beer freaking Mecca cause I can think of at least 6 stores within an hour of me with vastly better selections. Anyway, I was staying at the Ramada Inn 2 blocks away so I rolled in with cash in hand ready to fill up the 12 bottle shipper I brought with me. I quickly found there were precious few singles and the 750/Bomber section was relegated to a measily TWO cooler doors and no shelf space. Are you freaking kidding me? They have most of the local stuff and itís a better selection than any other liquor store I found near downtown, but this is 100% not a place to go out of your way for. I walked out with most of my beer money unpsent and only 4 bottles...2 750ís of Goosinator (a very nice find and I got the last 2) and 2 Bombers of Boulder GABF 25th Anniversary. At best the selection was average and it was a real disappointment, but fortunately it was practically next door to my hotel so I didnít waste any time getting theere.
