3fourths (1569) Boulder, Colorado | January 10, 2005| Updated April 20, 2013
A big store in a WalMart, Target, Applebees suburban strip mall area... a huge store but most of that is wine... beer is in the wall coolers, but their selection isn’t nearly as good as Liquor Mart in Boulder.... however, they do have some bottles that Liquor Mart does not, so it’s worth stopping in to find a couple of items.
Superior is located right off the freeway and next to an Old Chicago. We stopped in on the way to Denver from Boulder and to get some lunch. This is a large liquor store with a lot of beer available in addition to wine and liquor. Plenty of locals to be found including some New Belgium, Avery, and a lot of the newer breweries that are starting to bottle and can stuff. They also have some of the more expensive California beers like Bruery and the Eclipse series. I found it interesting that the Eclipse variations on the shelf (for $31.99) were the ones that everyone was hyping last year (Old Fitzgerald and the wheat whiskey one). They also have a couple of aisles with bottles and 12 packs on the shelves. The service was helpful but I wasn’t really looking for any help. Nice store and right off the highway but a bit out of the way from Boulder and Denver.
large liquor store just off the freeway. good selection of single bottles/mix six. some imports, plenty of the usual colorado beers, and quite a bit of stuff from california. prices are okay for the most part, but some things seemed a little on the high side.
Very large liquor store with the focus being on wine and then liquor and finally beer. The beer is located in wall coolers that occupy 1/2 of the interior wall space. Most of the stuff you can find in the cooler in cases. Selection is slanted towards US micros with a few Germans and Belgians, although not near the selection of Liquor Mart in Boulder. However, they did have Avery Meph when most others had run out. That part is current as of this rating and is subject to change rapidly.
Stopped by here in late October ’11 on a weekend trip to see Oregon play Colorado. The place is amazing. Hundreds of bombers, singles, imports, locals - you name it - they’ve got it. Have about four or five cooler doors dedicated to nothing but singles - mix and match six packs at various prices and they are quite a bargain. I walked out of there with at least 15 and my bill was barely $20. All the major west coast brewers are represented here. Friendly staff - even showed me how to save money by buying two more beers to round out one of the sixers and actually pay less. If in the Boulder area - worth the short drive down here.
Another typical, grocery-store sized CO liquor store, with the ambiance and location to match that theme - right off the highway 36, so it has that going for it - a bunch of wall coolers full of beer, but a great deal of them are crammed with suitcases of macro crap - the selection of craft and imports is respectable, and they have a few Cantillon’s, which is always a bonus - they also carry some of the Medovina Mead, which, surprisingly, not all that many area liquor stores do - the unfortunate part is that there are many other stores close by with larger selections (Total Beverage in Westminster, Liquor Barn in Boulder, etc.) so unless you live close by, or happen to be in the area, this is probably not worth a stop for you - however, this can be said of a lot of decent stores - they can’t all be "destination" stores.
Somewhat limited singles in the coolers, but not too bad. Rare that you will find anything different, but I think this is the only place I’ve ever seen that Roy’s beer from Mehana (though I don’t think there’s any left now). Maybe worth a stop if it’s convenient for you, but if you’re already going to Wilburs, Liquor Max, Liquor Mart, Total Beverage, or Davidsons...well...there’s not much point.
As a foreigner you get amazed by the size of this store, it packs enough alcohol to get the entire population of CO liqoured up. There is cooler space with beer almost as far eye can see, 15 meter (?) of this space is stocked with real beer, the rest is filled with the kind of stuff I am embarrassed to be seen holding in my hand. The majority of the micros are regional. The store could easily improve their selection for mix and match sixpacks, as well as speciality beers.
