First stop in Denver on this trip. This is right on Colfax and a few blocks from where we were staying. This is a fairly large store and has a ton of beer. The whole right wall is full of beer fridges and those fridges wrap around to the back wall. There are also several aisles of beer. These guys are ridiculous. They have so much beer, I can’t understand how they move it all. Actually, their biggest seller seems to be cans of Rolling Rock. Most of the traffic in the store surrounded the malt liquor fridges. I guess it makes sense considering the neighborhood it’s in. Chinoskillzian bought the last bottle of the AC Golden Berliner which was a nice find. We spent some time looking through everything but by that point in the trip I was sick of buying $10 bottles of crappy beer. I left without buying anything, even though the prices were decent.
seems to be the choice of cheap tall cans for the local transient community. other than a good malt liquor and pale lager selection, they have a lot of good nerd beers, too. lots of local colorado stuff, a decent selection of european imports, and stuff from around the us. pretty good pricing, too.
The new building is much nicer and easier to get around than the old. The service is nice and fairly beer knowledgeable. The selection is good and prices are reasonable.

I used to live near this place, and was certainly my regular big purchase liquor store. As others have mentioned, this place is great for wine and booze, less so for beer. Beer selection is hit or miss, and is scattered throughout one side of the store. The help is attentive, though not terribly knowledgeable about beer. In the past, this place was a real dump, but they recently opened a brand new store next to the old one, and its quite nice now. This place is OK, but it could, and should, be great.
76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
This is a huge liquor store close to downtown. Prices are little higher than others around town.The selection is pretty vast. I didn’t see any major rarities, but tons of six packs fill the coolers and there are a rows of bombers on shelves. There seems to be a decent focus on the beer, but I wouldn’t say it’s their priority.
Huge wine / beer store downtown Denver. Easy access even though they where renovating the parking lot while i was visiting ( Should be done by now ) Good selection of Belgians, Norwegian, Danish imports aswell as lots of US macros. Had a good deal on some Lost Abbey beers last time i visited. Prices seems pretty good compared to other places. Fine service, the 2 guys i talked to there was helpfull and had a pretty good knowlegde about the beer.
Fair prices with a varied selection of sixers, bombers and a welcome mix-6 pack shelf. The selection isn’t up to Binny’s but is quite good for Denver and I found it more interesting than Mondo’s. Service was good, their webshop isn’t up to date so many things that online were in stock had been sold out for months but the staff were friendly and I love the very late opening hours which made it easy for me to pop in after a busy day of drinking/sightseeing. A stop that is well worth visiting if near the Capitol building and museums on Colfax.
