I was really surprised by this place. Not the hugest beer selection but the beers are chosen quite well. I picked up a Dogfish Head Fort and Theobrama. They had plenty of The Abyss and a couple of other brews that you can’t always find elsewhere.
I’ve made numerous visits to Mondo Vino over the past few years; most recently in mid-April on a Colorado trip. Clean, upscale corner store with a heavy focus on the vino, but a well-stocked wall of beer coolers along the back wall.
Nice selection of Colorado craft brews, offerings from all over the west coast, and a nice mix of foreign imports. The staff is quick to guide you around, but in a helpful manner, not a high-pressure sales pitch. I found Jubel 2010 here, which was a nice grab that I hadn’t seen in other Denver-area stores.
I really liked the selection they had and the staff was really helpful. I asked for the Goose Island Barrel Aged Stout, they didn’t have it, but he suggested where I might be able to find it. There prices were a little high, but being from Florida and being depraved of good beer/stores down there, I didn’t mind spend the extra buck.
Really nicely laid out - most of the joint is deducated to a really well-thought-out wine selection (though it’s a bit pricey compared to the larger places). Beer coolers are well-organized and everything is perfectly displayed, no holes, everything well-lit and facing forward. Staff is super-helpful without being intrusive. Though mainly focused on the vine, there sure seemed to be a lot of beer-heads here. Prices are a tick or two above the big places. Selection is well done. Not enormous, but not really a bad beer in the store. They had a couple of the new releases before I saw them (if at all) @ Lukas, Davidsons, et al. 15 minute detour for me on the way home, but will be a regular stop.

Nice people the day I was there that honestly seemed to want to help. Not the biggest shop, but for what it is, rather nice selection. Lost Abbey, Mikkeler, Bruery, Jolly Pumpkin and many other usual suspects.

Quite a nice store, in a quaint little neighborhood in NW Denver - one wall of coolers dedicated to beer, about 3/4 of which are craft products - a nice selection of Colorado brews, as well as California (RR, PP) and Pac NW brews - a small but well-selected cooler of imports - welcoming staff - relatively reasonable prices - definitely worth a stop for the beer hunter in Denver.
Well lit good looking store with a small but well thought out selection of beers. The staff is extremely helpful. A bit on the pricy side, but not too bad.

I enjoyed my visits here. The selection is pretty extensive, focusing on Coloradoan beers. It has a sophisticated feel, but the prices seemed to be close to others in the area. The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable about the beer.
Nice little place for the highlands area. Good but not phenomenal beer selection. Better than Argonaut and not even twice the size. The staff that has approached me while browsing the selection are helpful, knowledgeable and have given great recommendations. Some singles available and quality bomber selection.
