Wow. These guys had a ton of bombers and 6, 12, and variety packs. They had Belgians, Germans, Americans, glassware, and an occasional rarity, too. Prices were competitive for what I saw in Denver, and the staff (the two guys I ran into) knew a fair amount about beer. For a downtown liquor store, this one has numerous beers and an atmosphere that lets you linger. They are currently renovating the parking lot, and that may contribute to difficult access, but I walked. Will go back every time I am nearby.
Huge store, but they have a weak beer selection relative to their size and location. Way too many doors of mass domestics and imports. I understand this is your bread and butter of sales, but come on. how many cooler facings of Bud Light and Corona do you need? Also disappointed in the lack of a byo/singles section. Especially for the first two story liquor store I’ve ever been to. I still dropped $200 bucks on stuff I can’t get in Kansas, but I’d like a better selection.
Not a fan of this beer store. Large in size, small in selection. Located in a shady part of town and was thankful it wasn’t dark out. If this is the only beer store in town, then it is okay, but hopefully there are better ones to be found.
This was the closest store to our hotel during GABF 2009, so this was our one and only bottle stop. Being from Florida, we thought the selection was very good given that there were a slew of beers we would have liked to buy but just didnt have the time to pack and ship home. Saw beers from most CO craft brewers, Lost Abbey and other CA brewers and a reasonable selection of belgian and other foreign beers. Definitely worth a stop when in Denver.
Big store but I had expected a lot more selection. Did not seem to have a big selection of local craft seasonals and specials and not even the full range of many Colorado brewers.

Too many liquor stores and not enough time nor money.

(this place has certainly grown on me - a decent amount of imports, but not as much as the big stores in the burbs - fairly high turn over - frequent sales - they don’t get "everything" new that is worth getting, but they do a decent job) Huge store in the Capitol Hill area of town - mostly focused on things besides beer, and the beer coolers, while they take up a big chunk of the store, are mostly filled with macros - a decent, but not entirely extensive selection of micros - a smattering of imports on one tiny section of shelving in the store (ie. import selection needs work) - kind of unimpressive, especially considering its size - the guy selling barbecue ribs in the parking lot made things a lot better, though - we need a better bottle shop downtown.

Large building, with a wide selection of liquor and wine. Beer selection was good, but not great. Got a couple bombers that are hard (but not impossible) to find locally. Friendly staff, decent prices.
