Colorado Liquor Mart is a huge liquor superstore with an extensive beer selction. Everything is refrigerated which is a big plus, but the selection is so vast that many of the bottles have dust on them. The upside is there are plenty of rarer things that are still sitting around from seasons past and they might be bottle conditioned or otherwise more condusive to sitting for long periods of time. Prices are great. The build your own six pack cooler is a joke considering the selection surrounding it. Check the date stamps and use your judgment and you fill definitely find something desirable at a good price here.
Seemingly one of the few places in Denver that has any kind of distribution if Shelton Brothers beers, it’s a smallish store with beer on the right side and all of it in coolers. They also had a nice selection of local beer as well as one of the worst pick six sections I’ve ever seen. (1 cooler? Really?) I can’t say saw much evidence of service. They had several employees and none of them approached me so it does a have a bit of the dodgy liquor store vibe. Still if you’re looking for Mikkeller in the area this may be one of the only places to visit in the area.
Unsuspecting looking store, right on a main street. The place has a very nice interior and there are a ton of beers in this place. lots of bottles along the fridge and lots of six packs. They event had a small cellar in the back, that they let me in, found a bottle I wanted in there. Really good store, nice and friendly staff. Definitely worth a stop in here.
Stumbled across this store on my recent trip through Denver. Decent selection of ltd/seasonal/import beers. If you ask me, the size of space for their domestic BMC types is way too big and their other selections are pretty random. Heavy in Shelton Bros products as well as plenty of perry/ciders that I haven’t seen before. The best part is the fact that they have Russian River on the shelf and I happened to pop in on the same day Pliny arrived. Of course I picked up a few. Overall not too shabby, just needs a little attention. Oh yeah, also a good spot for people looking to pick up Tactical Nuclear Penguin or Sink the Bismark without shipping direct from Brewdog. (Expect to pay a pretty penny though.)
Dingy looking on the inside and outside, right accross the street from shotgun willies (strip club), but still only minutes from cherry creek. Most of the staff is pretty helpful and knowlegable, but some of the guys are dicks in there. Can’t blame them too much b/c they do deal with alot of crap at their location. Selection is the best reason (and most important criterion) for coming here - alot of really interesting imports, rare, highly allocated, etc... Its not cheap but selection is good.
A decent beer store in most cities I have ever visited, though abit disapointing for a city the size of Denver. Still, likely 300 or more beers to choose from. The best selection were the Sam adams new series. Mixed six packs, and the availability of some Russian Rivers and several Port Brewing/Lot abbey were pluses. Decent though not exceptional Belgians and import selection. Not much in service. The best is their good selection of smaller Colorado breweries. Prices were a bit higher than expected for a bottle store.

Just recently started visiting but already one of my favorite places to get beer. The dude really knows his beer. Colorado Liquor Mart looks like your typical shopping plaza liquor store but this one has a very nice collection including some limited brews.
Update: this place seems to have gone downhill a bit since their beer guy left.
