Nice shop downtown, but selection isnít anything special. Enough for a few bottles that you may find interesting but only average compared to other shops.

Smaller sized store, somewhat limited selection, but carefully selected. Lots of stuff you donít see on the shelf hardly anywhere else in town. Great, knowledgeable staff. Definitely worth checking out, easily the best beer store in the general downtown area. Update: Special releases seem to be fair and organized well. Random cellar stuff on the shelf occasionally. Cool place.
Hardish to get to because of itís downtown location. Not a huge selection but the owners do a really good job of rotating though their bottles. Itís not my primary store, but one I like to stop at when Iím in the neighborhood. Prices are a little high due to the downtown locale.
Mr. Bís does a good job carrying plenty of interesting beer. You will find things that arenít at most other liquor stores and they seem to hang around just a little longer than Argonaut, for instance. There were some bums hanging around and going in to buy cheap liquor, keeping the place classed up. The prices are a little high, to be expected given its location directly in the heart of LoDo. Some things are par, some things are significantly marked up, but I didnít notice any great deals on any beer which I can usually find in the bigger liquor stores. If youíre downtown anyway and you want something to take home this will more than meet your needs. Several more visits have taught me that Mr. Bís is one of the select liquor stores around that gets all of the crazy rare stuff that trickles into Denver from time to time. Itís worth coming in to look for that kind of stuff specifically.
Visited here twice during GABF week. Directly when I walked trough the door we were approached by a clerk asking if we needed assistence. When he heard we were from abroad he directly called a clollegue and there were two guys trying their best to show us some good beers. They also told us that they had special releases during GABF week so we went back for that as well. Prices are very reasonable and selection is big. Mostly American, some Belgian and few other countries. Very good store and recommended if you ever visit Denver!
Nice little beer store near the ballpark in Denver. Selection is smaller than expected, but carefully curated. Very friendly owner. Helpful staff.
Overall, a really nice experience. Great place to ship for craft whiskey or spirits if thatís your thing as well.
Iíll start with the best. This store is all about quality and customer service. Nearly every time I enter the store Iím welcomed and almost immediately approached to see if I need any assistance, which I typically do, due to the high quality of their selection. Of the beers youíll find here, they are all simply the best examples of either that style, brewery and region. From Italian sours, to the latest local IPAs, to the classic (and up-and-coming) European beers the selection is top notch here. Not to mention they have a collaboration with River North brewery which tells me a couple things. One, theyíre connected to the community at large, and two, they care about beer. Great store, great service.
About the only caveats of this store is that itís in a somewhat awkward place so parking is street only and sometimes can be difficult to get to during baseball games at Coors or festivals on Market/Larimer. The other caveat is while their selection is top notch, you wonít find everything here... but Iím not typically looking for average stuff, so not a detraction for me. Prices are about on par with other stores in the area, maybe a couple pennies more, but itís worth it for the service you get here.
Overall highly recommended.
Tiny liquor store located within the shadow of Coors Field. They do have a coulle of parking spaces next door which is nice mThe beer is confined to 10-11 coolers and an endcap. The selection was fairly small and lacked a pick six section but they did have a lot of Belgian, Scandinavian, and local bombers. I did have a clerk ask me if I needed help while clearly facing the beer section which never,ever happens in liquor stores ever so top marks on service. Itís a solid neighborhood place but I canít see it as any sort of destination place.
Mr. Bís has a terrific beer selection. I went in thinking to pick up some local Western beers and ended up with big box of beers from Loverbeer, Mikkeller, BFM, Russian River, Dieu du Ciel, among others. Friendly and helpful service.
I walked in right before closing on the way to Great Divide. The guy was nice enough to stay open a couple more minutes. They have a modest selection to choose from but itís not bad. Plenty of locals (Breckenridge, Great Divide, SKA, etc) plus some national stuff but surprisingly heavy on the locals. The guy working the counter was nice and offered some suggestions but in the end I just got a couple of random local 12oz bottles that I hadnít tried before. Itís a convenient stop if youíre in down town. Actually itís about the only bottle shop in down town.
I was here last weekend. The service was great. They came over and chatted me up and gave me some good pointers on the local beers, etc. They have a pretty good selection of local beers and regional beers. Mostly all refridgerated. A friendly place, and I can see why they score so well. Nothing super rare, but solid nonetheless.
