Marczyk is the fancy grocery store attached to the liquor store called Fairfax Wine & Spirits technically, but you are going to see the Marczyk name from the road. Small parking lot for patrons. You can run around both stores freely with stacked mini carts. However,due to some strange CO laws you must pay for alcohol inside the wine portion of the store and the food on the food side of the store. No mixing. Food portion of the store is stocked with excellent charcuterie, top end cheeses, olives, pickles, etc along with a full on seafood and meat section with butcher so you can really prepare for a top notch beer or wine tasting. The alcohol portion of the store has about 90% of space dedicated to wine with beer in the back. Fridged six packs and singles with larger 750mL singles on nearby rack. Saw a couple of unfridged hoppy beers, but for the most part hoppy stuff was in the fridge. Saw breweries like Boulevard, Russian River but more interesting local brewers like River North, Eddyline, SKA, Upslope. I also saw some rarer AC Golden sours. Decent prices, nothing outrageous. Service is friendly. Both Maxine and Brianne know their beer and will help you out and stop to chat. Overall, this is a great place to stock up on beer/wine and cheeses/charcuterie to really host a boss tasting. They also sell some yummy looking premade sandwiches to go, though I didn’t try them.

I love Marczyk’s - while I prefer the original location in Uptown, this one is much closer to my home, so I shop here more often - it’s a rather expensive place to shop, but you pay for quality and selection (they have some food items here that you will not find in any other grocery store in the state, and their house made sausages and prepared foods are delicious) - anyway, to the beer - as has been noted, Fairfax is a small shop attached to the grocery that specializes in wine, but has a small, well-selected beer area in the back - there is nothing here that you will not find in the larger or more beer focused area stores, but having access to Russian River, some well-selected imports, and some of the smaller local brewer’s bottled products essentially inside a high- end grocer makes this one stop shopping for planning a kick-ass beer dinner - the staff is also extremely helpful and accommodating (some can even help with food pairing) - if you are in the area and love food just as much as you love beer, then check this place out - you may not actually buy any beer if you’ve already been to some other stores, but you’ll probably leave with a hundred bucks worth of tasty cheeses and snacks - mmmmmm.

This is my favorite place to buy beer (and wine) because of the service, selection, and vibe. You will not find friendlier staff. They’ve gone out of their way to contact me when hard to find beers by my favorite breweries come in (i.e. they had 2 of FW’s Parabola waiting for me the day it was released-- 1 for the cellar and 1 for the instant I got home). The selection isn’t the largest in town but there’s more than enough good stuff to wet your whistle (and they’ll try to get their hands on something not in stock for you if you just ask), and when you factor in their wine selection and knowledge plus its location inside the best gourmet grocery in town, it really is the perfect place. They also do free tastings on Friday afternoons, usually paired with goodies.
