massive warehouse liquor store with outrageously high prices on single bottles of belgian imports and US craft. singles can not be purchased as singles, only as a mixed-six pack. . they get points for having a walk-in room/cooler where they house many of the more interesting bottles, but terrible customer service and inflated prices means I will not return as a customer.
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.
(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.
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.

Pretty big selection, though nothing too special that I could find. I guess I should stop by again to see if anything has changed in the last year, but I wasn’t too impressed previously.
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.
Giant beutifully decorated liquor store. One of the prettiest I’ve seen, but thats the best I can say about this place. It’s hard to find some help. The selectiuon is large but mostly ordinary or crap beer. They are high priced for their size ( I guess they have to pay for the pretty store somehow). So I don’t see much value here. When you check out they scan your ID and your name and birthday shows up on your reciept which sucks ( another chance for idedenity theives if you don’t pay attention)! Don’t waste your time there are better stores in the area

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."
Really large craft bomber/inernational single selection in a cooler room - decent mix-6 section and dozens and dozens of 4/6/12/24 cooler doors - if it’s available in Colorado, it’s generally here. Prices are occasionally a buck or two higher than other joints locally, but the selection generally makes up for it. very nice wine selection, to boot. Specific to the comment below - yes, they do card everyone, no exceptions. Their Point-of-sale systems require ID info to begin the transaction. If the ’intrusiveness’ and ’unacceptability’ of the 5 seconds it takes to produce a valid ID is too much, then I agree that you’re better off shopping elsewhere. Jeez.
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.
