Nice and clean. Fairly large selection of beer. Some notables were missing, but I also found a few beers that I haven’t seen elsewhere. Pricing seemed inline with other Colorado stores. Service was fairly non-existent though.

If you’re looking for somewhere with almost everything, go here. Good place, absolutely huge! Awesome selection, bigger cold storage than the entirety of most liquor stores. Great selection of macros, micros, locals, etc. They even have a whole aisle of aging/aged beers. They’ll also happily order you anything they don’t already have. I like to stop in when I’m in town and always find something new I haven’t tried yet.

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 didn’t have the capacity to bring anything back home, so I limited my shopping greatly. Otherwise, I probably would’ve drained my bank account here. This is absolutely worth a drive from Denver if you’re looking for some local beers.

Huge mega liquor store, clean, well laid out. Easy to find, about 3 minutes east of I25, 10 minutes north of downtown. They had one longish shelf full of quality imports, and domestic micros. The cooler space for micros and imports was pretty limited, and the selections of what they kept cold were a little odd. Rochefort 10 cold, Blind Pig and Pliny warm, for example. Overall, selection was good and the prices seemed about right. I did not see anyone working the floor looking to help out, though the store is laid out well enough that service is not all that important. Worth the trip, on my visit they had a better selection than Argonaut.
76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Was here quite a while ago, but what a huge place! Clean, good selection - got some O’dell brews here along with a cool O’dells logo glass. Sold out of Stone stuff and quite a few other items listed on their website though. As barleyPops mentioned, service was non-existent.

Pdee was nice enough to drive me out to this place two years ago and I never bothered to rate it. Very solid selection with lots of beers in coolers and lots on the shelves. Plenty of stuff (I spent $150 and could have spent a lot more) not availible to me in Florida including many CO and other regional micros not availible in the southeast. Definitely worth a trip.

This place is huge! And while it is very clean and the selection is pretty good, there were some empty spaces in the coolers and on the shelves. Prior to stopping here I had checked out the TB website. Many of what is listed is NOT available at the store. While I can understand the store not having everything I was hoping to find, what was most bothersome was the service. It took me at least five minutes to find a clerk and he was of no help whatsoever! He proceeds to get another clerk, he too was of no help. My wife later refferred to them as "dumb & dumber"! I was looking for Colorado micros and these guys never once offered to look in the store room or check the computer. Fortunately another customer came over to answer my questions and he was very helpful. I was hoping to just make one liquor stop while in Denver, but ended up going to Applejack’s in Wheat Ridge and found the CO micros I was looking for.

This was my first trip to TB. Huge store, nice and clean. Great beer and wine selection. I haven’t 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.

Thanks to pdee for driving my happy ass out to this joint! The selection was pretty good… loads of CO beers, some Stone, Avery, Hair of the Dog, and Bear Republic stuff, some rather rare imports that I don’t see around FL. The prices seemed a bit on the high side… but that was fine because I just wanted to find some new beers. The staff were all a bunch of retards! It took them at least 5min to check me out at the register… but this place is worth the stop!

this place has a decent selection, they just are to lazy to pull out of date imports [ not the kind that age,the kind that get raunchy]. The old beer manager Rick is full of it. One time he told me if it was available in the front range they could get it. I came in with a list of cases of barleywine I pickup every yeaR AND ALL HE WOULD SAY IS WE DONT HAVE IT. i EVEN OFFERED TO PAY UP FRONT! The Wine co. orders beer for me all the time but I guess Total thinks there to big to worry about $300 special orders.
