Really nicely laid out - most of the joint is deducated to a really well-thought-out wine selection (though itís 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.
nicely done store. nice wooden interior, just about all te beer stored in coolers, and a pretty good selection with some obscure beers I didnít see in other stores. modest in size. prices seem to be on par with other shops. service was really friendly and helpful too. definitely worth a stop.
Stopped in after Hops and Pie. Quite a nice store with a pretty good selection. Perhaps a little slim in certain areas. Definitely a wide variety of Colorado locals. Prices seemed pretty high, at least compared to what i am used to at home.

This place is typical of many CO bottle shops in that seem to focus more on rarities and bombers and think nothing of creating a pick 6 section where you can sample locals without having to pay the sometimes ridiculous prices for some of the locally produced bombers. I do like the wine store vibe in that everything seems clean and fresh although the bottle caps with the prices inside seemed a little precious to me. Service was pretty solid in that I was asked a couple of times if I needed help whilst clearly looking at beer which is a good sign. I also liked that they had some reserved parking spots near the store. And of course the best part was they had about a case of Pliny the Elder bottles which was awesome. They have a lot of interesting stuff and itís all refrigerated but not having the pick 6 section keeps it from true greatness.
Stopped by during drive to Denver from COS. Very nice set up. Loved the step up and wood floors. Cases were impeccably clean and stocked. I was offered assistance. Selection was good. Prices seemed higher than COS. Very nice store and area
Popped by Mondo Vino on a recent visit to Denver (Jun í12).
Not the biggest selection in the world but lots of interesting offerings from Colorado craft brewers and further afield (Nogne, Mikkeller, various Belgian/German).
All beers are in a series of large fridge cabinets along the back wall.
The service was first rate.
I was offered help immediately upon browsing the first fridge and I then asked for some reccomendations for eats and drinks in the area.
I was pointed to Meade Station just a few doors up and the server offered to hold my beer in a fridge for me whilst I ate.
We returned an hour later and I had another browse and again was helped immediately.
This time a different server and he gave us more reccomendations for restaurants downtown and took the time to google them for specific addresses etc.
First rate service, the guys knew their beer, highly reccomended!

updated for 2012. after years of infrequent visits due to high prices and somewhat common selection, Mondo Vino is now solidly the best beer selection in Denver/Boulder, and I try to make it in at least once a week. with a high number of imports not seen elsewhere in town, and focus on quality and the new, strange and obscure, they are separating themselves from the rest of the bottle shops in the area. they of course still have a lot of the usually big American beers and a good local selection, but itís the imports that make the difference: quite a few Shelton Brothers bottles not seen elsewhere, and at the moment they are the only Colorado store known to have the amazing Moa Pale Ale. simply put, this is the #1 recommended bottle shop for Denver visitors, no doubt.
