Coaltrain has the unfailing convenience of being the best and only source of good beer within walking distance. The beer section is not the most emphasized part of the store but they do carry a respectable variety. Most of the local microbrewers are present, including Great Divide, New Belgium (La Folie is available), Avery, etc. The rest of the selection is focused primarily on famous US microbrewers which include Stone, North Coast, Full Sail, and Bear Republic among others. Some international brews are also to be found, though this implies mostly the Belgians for which prices range from high to exorbitant. Liefmans, Rochefort, Chimay, Orval, Delirium, Corsendonk and Carolus and more. The choice is not organized in one array but rather decentralized around various parts of the store - youíll have to do some sleuthing in order to find your pick. As a general rule the packs are contained in the main refrigerators while local and Belgian singles are in the small side refrigerator or behind the counter. Most of the staff appears vexed by questions of my interest but the owner (with the ponytail) seems to have some genuine interest in beer. Provided there is room in the small fridge he will sometimes break up packs. Also look for seasonal samplers that run every month or so. They include 6 beers from a variety of microbreweries for about $7 which is generally a good deal.

Coal Train, a store that derives its name from its propinquity to a rail line, specializes more in wine than beer. You can tell. Half the store is lavishly decorated in a rural French setting. Thatís the wine section. The other half is dark, dim and mostly neglected. Thatís the beer half. They have a reasonable selection of locals and imports, but you have to search in the back for the refrigerator with some rarer singles. They also keep some gems behind the counter where you can hardly read the label Seems like a poor business tactic to me. The service is slow and the employees are apathetic. They spend far too much time checking my (legitimate) ID. When I showed a clerk my temporary driverís license he became consternated and just stared at it until he woke up from his daze and sold me my beer. Its biggest advantage is its location; close to a traffic junction and close to a college.

Small to medium selection of singles behind the counter (canít even touch those bottles without getting someone to help, irritation #1, and then the fellow who was there didnít even know what I was asking for...had to point and describe the label, etc., irritation #2). Not bad overall, I suppose, but pales in comparison to the best beer-friendly stores in Denver, Loveland, Ft. Collins, and Boulder.

Scott is the manager and is willing to go out of his way to get beers from the distributor. This store easily carries the best selection of Belgians in Colorado Springs as well as the big beers from Rogue and other US micros. The selection is only limited by what the distributor can get. Worth a visit if you are in Colorado Springs.
