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.
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.
Not the fanciest or most helpful place to buy your beer, but they have three times the selection of bombers as Wilburs, and much better prices and sales. Great if you know what you want or you are just browsing and do not need any recommendations.
Large bottle shop, just of US 36. Convenient location and friendly staff, generally fairly knowledgeable. Good craft beer selection, though Hazel’s and Liquor Mart carry most everything they have. Decent prices.
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.
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.
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.
