This place is amazing. It’s huge. Beer selection is vast, and there is a special chilled bomber room in back. Service is below average, mostly stock guys running around and it can get crowded around holidays. I thought prices were fair. I go here anytime I’m in town.
(Visited 03/2014): Tipsy;s Liquor World is a large store in Littleton off 470 on Alkire Street. There is a large parking lot in front of the store.
The interior of the store is large and spacious, similar to places like Total Wine or Bevmo. Large communal area in the center with a fireplace and seats. The different beverages each have their own section, with the beer being in the rear of the store. There is a walk-in cooler with shelves full of beer divided geographically, and coolers along the back wall with mixed singles and six-packs.
Tipsy’s has a solid selection of CO and other regional craft breweries, including Twisted Pine, Crooked Stave, Lost Abbey, Alaskan and Great Divide. Imports are available as well from Belgium, Canada, Germany and elsewhere.
Service was pretty typical for this type of store. A guy assigned to the beer section helped me find the regional stuff, and checkout was friendly.
I am not sure if this place has food. It appeared like their cafe in the front of the store was permanently closed.
Overall you pretty much know what you are going to get with these large chain type stores. I would definitely hit this place again knowing I am sure to find some things I cannot get back home.

Huge huge liquor store off of 470, hard to miss. Giant walk-in coolor with tons of bombers, 750s and imports. They also have a large make your own six pack selection, probably 5 cooler doors worth. Unfortunately, some of this stuff sits on the shelf too long. Other than that, the selection is pretty good, though I’m convinced they have better stuff in the back. Prices are a little high and service is just OK. It’s worth a stop if you’re driving by. Also, I’ve been mocked for buying expensive beer at the register. "Is that enough to get ya drunk? I could buy a nice bottle of bourbon for that" Also overhead, "Budweiser is my favorite beer."
This is a massive liquor store right off the interstate. Prices match most other major discount retailers. There are tons of coolers full of six packs and two giant coolers dedicated to build your own six packs. The major gem is the huge walk in cooler full of bombers and 750s. There are rarities to be found in here including CO stuff, regional offerings and a competent import selection. Definitely worth a stop.
Worst keg experience ever.
- Ordered an 8-gallon keg over a week in advance. 3 days later, was told there were no 8-gallon kegs, so had to switch it to a 5-gallon keg.
- Then a day before I was to pick up the keg, I was told the beer was out-of-stock. Shouldn’t they have known this a lot earlier? So I was offered a discount on a lesser beer.
- A few hours later, I received another call saying they were able to get my original beer. How’s that possible? Weren’t they out-of-stock? I’m guessing someone just forgot to place the order.
- I finally get the keg, drive an hour out-of-town into the national forest with no cell reception, only to find they had given me the wrong tap. The tap they gave us wouldn’t fit the keg. Drive miles to find cell reception. They swear they gave us the right tap. I have friends go and pick up a new tap, and we get the keg working. Yes, they had given us the wrong tap.
- After that entire nightmare of an experience, I return everything fully expecting a comp of the keg, for all my wasted time and the wasted time of my friends. The beer manager, Brady, refuses and offers a token of a free 6-pack, and also refuses to allow me to speak to the store manager, Page. BS. Keep your 6-pack. You’ll receive negative reviews instead.
all in all a pretty good liquor store. a nice deli attached to it a good selection but be warned some of the harder to get stuff cough pliney cough cough is upon request only prices are a bit above average but so is selection not to bad a place and free tastings.
What this place is, is basically the wal-mart of liquor stores. Very focused product selection that is far from deep. Incredibly underwhelming in that they seemed to just have the standards. Nothing really stood out, aside from the fact that this place is monstrous. I’ll find someplace else next time I’m in town.
A very large liquor store that is easily seen from C-470 on the West side of Denver. The back wall is mostly cooler doors with singles and packs of varying sizes. There is a glass walk-in cooler for the large bottle selection. The selection is nice and the prices reasonable.
I have very few complaints with this place. The bomber room is exceptional, especially for Belgian beers, the new staff they have hired is reasonably knowledgeable and outgoing. Really the only problem is that the prices are still a little high but much much better than they were a year ago. If you are nearby you need to at least stop in and peruse the bomber room, it’s a must see. Friday’s and Saturday’s they have awesome tastings too, great bombers and 6 packs of beer
