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.

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.

Stopped here during the GABF on a whim as I was driving my rental car back to the hotel and saw the store and decided to see what they had inside. A decent selection of local beer, they donít allow you to break sixes so I ended up picking up mostly bombers and a couple of avery 12 ouncers(the beast and samuale). From what I heard this is the best you get in Denver, and that is not much. For a city that calls itself "The Napa Valley of Beer" they need a good bottle shop!

stopped in with Chuck. So-so on the singles. They allowed us to order a case of La Folie, which, they got in the following day. Couldnít find a damned taxi when I needed to take that case back to the hotel. Ended up hiking 1.5 miles carrying a 50 lb box... :( Not really a whole lot else exciting.

I guess the closes thing to a bottle shop downtown denver has to offer. They have an ok selection of singles w/ a few things I canít get in my area and a great selection of the local micros.
