Whoever their manager was on halloween night was a total douchebag. I came in in costume (because it was halloween) and within seconds of me coming in he descended on me to inform me that I had to leave as they had a no shirt no service policy and most of my torso was exposed because of my costume. I assumed policies like these were in place to keep out vagrants, but whatever. It seemed to me he was just itching to exercise whatever tiny shred of power he had, stemming from, I theorize, something else tiny in his life. I said something to the effect of "come on dude, really? It’s halloween. It’s a costume." He was adamant about the policy, which whatever, some peoples’ minds can’t function outside a set of rules, and I even said to the girl I was with before I came in, something to the effect of "if there’s a rule nazi in there who says I can’t be in there because of my costume, you’re gonna have to go in." So, having already considered this possibility, I calmly say something to the effect of "whatever, you [email protected] nazi," and walk away without another word. Or try to walk away. Rulenazi McNeverbeenlaid’s microscopic ego (again, stemming from other microscopic issues) was so deeply wounded by these four words that he, in a fit of high school principal-like rage and indignation starts yelling at me to "get back here," presumably so he could scold me? Teach me a lesson? I’m not really sure by what right or for what purpose he so desperately wanted me to come back after telling me I would not be allowed to spend my money there. Anyway, I respond with a well-deserved over the shoulder middle finger and an equally well-deserved "[email protected] you @sshole." Assuming the situation to be over, I fall back on plan B, which is to have my companion go in and spend my money at this store. Had it not been so late and we were running out of options for alcohol, I would have voted with my dollars on the spot and never set foot in the place again after that childish confrontation. Anyway, the situation was apparently NOT over because the 50-year old virgin then pursues me INTO THE PARKING LOT WITH A POLICE OFFICER yelling like a [email protected] maniac "That guy! him right there! He’s permanently 86’ed! Nobody with him is allowed in here!" So the cop, doing his job at the request of this douchefairy, explains that I have to leave and I’m like "uh, duh, I’m getting in the car right now. I don’t understand why this toolbox is having such a meltdown over here," to which the cop shrugs his shoulders. Anyway, I ended up going to Paul’s Liquors just a few blocks east with no issue whatsoever because the managers there do not have sociopathic [email protected] syndrome, and I suggest you spend your money there, or anywhere that doesn’t employ that [email protected], as well!
Big store with a big parking lot on Colfax by the Fillmore. Typical big beer store ambiance and service. Pretty huge seletcion of beer, bombers, imports and malt liquor, usually at least a gem or two. It has been picked through pretty good the last few times I’ve been there, though. Still, it’s always worth taking a look if you’re in the area. Plus, it’s right across the street from Sancho’s.
Waited in front of Argonaut for a few hours for the Bourbon County release on Black Friday. Unfortunately, they lied/changed their minds about allotment limits at the last minute. This was extremely disappointing. Otherwise, I would avoid, mostly do to being in a difficult spot in town and many other stores having the same bottles for cheaper, and with much better service.
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.
Went here once during my Denver trip while on a beer run. Massive store which is basically standard for any US liquor store. Nice selection of standard American brews and some European. Couldn’t find any logic behind the way the beers are displayed. Not sorted on brewery nor style. Just randomly placed on the shelves. Picked up some bottles I didn’t saw anywhere else, but no real rarities. Ok store!
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.
Super store for wine and homeless smelly drunks. Place is so loud with employees yelling on the intercom and carts rattling all over the place. I felt nauseous after 3 minutes of searching for beer after beer that they don't stock.

One of my favorite beer stores in Denver. This place has an especially nice selection of bombers and 3/4 L bottles. I’ve picked up a few there that I couldn’t find elsewhere. On top of that, I’ve caught some good deals there too. Definitely recommend if you’re near downtown. Best malt liquor selection in the state
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.
