First of all this ratman197 guy looks like he is just spamming his uneducated comments on this web site, making his opinion useless. You find a liquor store that is better. The people are awesome there. The Store manager rick will bend over backwards to get you anything and everything you can ask for... if its available in Colorado heíll get it. Great selection, not everything but hey no one can carry every wine, beer and spirit you know lets be realistic!!! Great place!
Holy crap. Pretty much any beer available in the area is here and sold in singles. Prices were just as good as any other store I visited. My main beef is that mega stores with such a vast catalogue generally have old dusty bottles on the shelf. But this place seems to have good rotation. A few things I wanted had a shelf tag, but were sold out. Thankfully I didnít have the capacity to bring anything back home, so I limited my shopping greatly. Otherwise, I probably wouldíve drained my bank account here. This is absolutely worth a drive from Denver if youíre looking for some local beers.
IMO, this particular Total Beverage is one of the best liquor stores in the state of Colorado. Great micro selection and European selection, and it seems to be ever-expanding. They just expanded their singles section, too. Their refrigeration costs must be through the roof, as they have a cooler section that is as big as a grocery store's. Oh, and the place is very spacious and always spotlessly clean. The beer guy there (I think his name is Rick) is really helpful and must have some really good distributor connections. They always seem to get stuff way before other liquor stores in the area. To get there, take I-25 north of Denver to 104th and head east a few blocks to the intersection of 104th and Washington. Total Beverage is next to King Soopers, in the southeast part of the intersection.
This place is pretty much my mecca. Stopped on a recent trip to Denver, as friend in the area has told me over and over that I needed to go. She was right! Coming from Montana, where the selection isnít that great outside of macros and Montana brews, I was overwhelmed by the sheer number of beers, wines, and liquors. The only thing that could make it better would be if it was closer to me! Lets just say that I dropped a bit more money than I needed to, and that Iím already plotting another trip to Denver, partially to restock my beer supply!

Excellent selection of micro's & euro's. It's big, roomy and well laid out. A definite beer stop while in the Denver aread
one of the better priced places to get the one of the best selections of beer around. They have some rarities if you come in at the right time. the staff is usually very helpful and talkative check it out when in thornton
This is a good store in a good location, but it has terrible parking. There is a huge selection of singles, a ton of Belgians and everything is in good order. They have a ton of coolers and a "pick your own six-pack" section where they give you 27% off the total price of the sixer. Most everything I desire I can find! Except they have an odd lacking of Rogue ales.
This is not only the best place on the north side of Denver, Itís the only place worth saying you stopped in and got a little tipsy. They do wine and beer tastings on friday and saturday, specials all the time, and a classic car show and wine and mead tasting on June 13 and 14th of 2009. Not maybe the best, but I dare you to find some place else with as much going on.
This was my first trip to TB. Huge store, nice and clean. Great beer and wine selection. I havenít been to the other top 2 or 3 beer stores in CO yet, but TB definitely had the largest selection I have seen. I was in a little bit of a hurry so I breezed by a lot of things that normally I would have taken more time to check out. I have a couple of "local" liquor stores that rival TB in terms of micro selection, but TB blows them away in terms of imports. Tons of belgians, germans, english, and other imports. I did not ask for any help, but was asked a couple of times if I needed any.
