I wasnt too impressed with this place-seemed a bit under-stocked when i was there. didnt have alot of offerings that davidsons had. lots of empty shelf space and not staff around for help. seemed alot different than the lucas in the st louis area. i didnt buy anything here.
Huge warehouse-type retailer. I was wowed the first time I went here by the walk-in refrigerator that has a large bomber selection. Good service and they will call you if there is a beer you are looking for and they get it in. I don’t frequent often because I live so far away, but if there is a beer I am looking for that I can’t get elsewhere, they usually have it.
really big liquor store with an amazing selection towards the back. This place gets an A just for The Bomb Shelter, a walk in cooler full of rare and seasonal bombers. Needs more selection in the mix-a-6 dept though...

Excellent beer selection. Large refrigerated bomber section and 2doors of mix-a-six. Employees where helpful and knowable about beer.
Drove out to here a few nights ago to test out the place. Definitely a warehouse style liquor store, with the entire back wall stocked with beer. The selection was decent...until you see "The Bomb Shelter." Full of single bottles/larger format bottles with some fairly decent stuff, the prices were decent and even had a few lambics which is pretty damn rare this day and age. Would go back!

I’ve come to realize that this is the go-to beer store in South Denver. Awesome walk-in cooler that gets all the good stuff- Bourbon Old Rasputin, Eclipses, Utopias, all the Crooked Stave, all the Funkwerks, stuff from Rockyard and Dry Dock. The one weakness is German beers... Absolutely no Hacker Pschorr, Franziskaner, Schlenkerla, or anything else interesting German to speak of. Can’t blame them- most German beer sits for years until I buy it and then I’m pissed when it’s six years old. They do have case discounts now, so fuck you Mike.

Maybe my favorite liquor store in the Denver area. Large liquor warehouse. Huge selection back wall of coolers. Walk in cooler has a great selection of bombers, always something new, good seasonals. Friendly staff always willing to help and knowledgeable. Good prices. When I’m in Denver I always make it a point to stop by.
stopped in here while I was in Denver during GABF... they have a lot of beer, both on the shelf and in the fridge... you can make your own six pack for $8... from a selection of beers... they have a walk in cooler filled with wonderful special bombers and 750’s called the Bomb Shelter... I found glorious beers in here like Mirror Mirror, tons of Lost Abbey, Bruery Papier, and much more.... it was so hard to figure out what to bring home in my suitcase.... wonderful help too. good prices... definitely will return on my next visit.
My intention was to go to Davidson’s, but according to my GPS, Boatworks Drive doesn’t exist, WTF? - anyway, I the address of this place down as a back-up store - as has been said, this place is huge, with a long wall of refrigerators along the back wall - at first, it doesn’t seem that impressive - an extensive selection of local brews, with a decent mix a six, but not nearly as extensive as Total Bev up in Westminster - however, once you enter the walk-in, you realize why others have rated this so highly - a handful of American micros I haven’t seen yet in the area (Alaskan Baltic Porter being the big draw, but s few Left Hand, and some other beers from brewers I’ve never heard of) - comprehensive selection of Boulevard, Russian River, Bruery - reasonable prices, a tad bit lower than many area stores (ex. 8.99 for Damnation, 19.99 for Dark Horizon - not cheap, but a couple bucks less than I’ve ever seen it) - small, but well-selected import shelves - three or four Cantillons, six or seven Mikkeller, four or five Nogne O, etc. - I live in Denver, but I will make a point to come here periodically - quite a nice store.

Massive warehouse type liquor store. Great selection of singles, sixes and bombers. Russian River, Boulevard, Lost Abbey, Stone, Struise, Deschutes and many other beers. Blind Pig, Black Albert and Devotion are some of the notable brews. Picked up a niced mixed sixer for $7.99. Nice selection of glassware. Really great store.
Stopped back in again today 6 weeks since my last visit and they had a bunch of new brews they did not have last time. Looks like they update there stock often which is great.
