This is a massive and insanely busy liquor superstore. It’s crowded and the near-endless beer selection makes it an undertaking to shop here. It’s certainly worth it though. Most anything rare and exciting that comes to the Denver metro market makes its way to Applejack. Tons and tons of CO beers are available. The place is so busy that it seems the rotation of stock is good.
Visited mid-morning on a Saturday on our way up to the mountains. Conveniently located and easy to find off I-70. Large liquor store with a large selection of wine, beer and spirits. The beer is located on the right hand side of the store, and there is a large selection of local and national craft available cold and warm. I was impressed by the range of Colorado beers, certainly the best I had seen in a store (to be fair it has been a few years since I have visited other top Colorado stores). Service was friendly and extremely helpful, particularly in the wine section where I was looking for Willamette Pinot Noirs. Only quibble is they didn’t have much of a single selection, so if you are only looking for ticks this may not be the best spot. When I lived in Denver (9 years ago), Applejack was a regular stop for me for wine, had never really paid attention to their beer selection, so it was fun to visit.
82 = ★★★½ (Solid place, near the top of the list for locals and visitors)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
Typical liquor store. Great selection. Great service.

I stopped in here for the first time recently. The selection is pretty good, a little better than Evergreen/Conifer collective stores (where I used to live). I picked up a Serpents Stout and a few Trinity 375’s. Mostly US micro stuff, not a ton of imports. I will probably stop here occasionally based on its convenient location right off of I-70. Update: more imports, more legit, best store on this side of town.
Big place, but the selection was ok, price ok
its big but its just little above average. One thing the staff was very helpful

I remember coming to this place in the 70’s to buy Anchor Steam and Guiness. The beer selection has improved -- alot! Nothing rare but a great selection of Colorado and Utah berrs, with a decent selection of beers from Belgium, Denmark and elsewhere. Big drawback compared to some of the big retilers - they don’t sell indidual 12 oz bottles.
Stopped here on the way to the mountains. Large parking lot and very spacious inside. Large craft brew section with good shelf and cooler space. Good selection with some Belgians included. Found some Firestone and Odells. I asked about Pliny and the clerk found the beer section manager who said it was supposed to be delivered the next day and that he would hold some for me if I could come back then. He received a small amount of Pliny, yet held some for someone visiting from out of state. How nice is that! I now frequent this place every trip to CO on the way from Denver to the mountains.
Stopped by here on the way up to the Rockies to pick up a few local beverages. Had several coolers full of local micros and various import offerings. Nice selection of moderately priced bombers which I picked up a few of. Lacking in any real singles selection which would have been nice considering the literally hundreds of different local six packs they had. Still found about a dozen or so to round out my supply for the rest of the week. All of the Colorado brewers seemed to represented well here. Note - they accepted credit cards when I was here - noted that a few reviews said they did not.
