I decided to visit Libations because I was already driving way-too-far-out-of-my-way to get to Dry Dock. Luckily both were worthwhile destinations.

Upon walking in, I was greeted by a friendly associate/owner. She asked if she could help and I said I was just looking for their beer selection. She directed me to the back of the store and a walk-in cooler which customers have access to. It's unusual to be allowed into a liquor store cooler unsupervised. It's also strange to be looking through the bottles at near freezing temperatures!

They have a nice selection of craft beer, some unusual imports, and rare Belgians. I was impressed that some of their beers were not even available at my mega-warehouse go to shop in Fort Collins, Wilbur's. I guess that's the result of having different distributors.

I purchased 6 bottles (to get a 10% off discount) but I was informed some were not eligible because they were on sale. Fair enough.

Overall a nice place with a smallish, yet great, selection and reasonable prices. Very good service is a rarity in the beer stores around here but this one has it.

This little shop is great. If it wasn't out of my way I would shop here more often. The shop owner is knowledgable and friendly, the store is small but stocked up with great beers that a lot of stores don't carry. They have a beer text message they send out weekly with new releases, that keeps me from having to drive up there only to be disappointed, and with their awesome selection I usually stop in for something they announced in a text and walk out with two or three other treasures. I love this place.

I visit Libations every friday on my way home from work and it is the perfect way to start my weekend after a long grinding work week. The staff are helpful, well informed and friendly. the selection is outstanding, there shouldn't be this many good beers in one place, it makes my decision making difficult. The walk in freezer is a treasure trove waiting to be plundered. i start there, find a few choice bottles and then move outward. the thing that amazes me most about their selection is that although it is large, i have yet to pick up a beer that wasn't downright tasty. if you are a fan of great beer (and you obviously are or why would you be visiting BA?) you owe it to yourself to pop in.

I first went here because it was next too a running store that I frequent. Glad I went in. Selection was great and enjoyed seeing some beers that the other stores in the area have not had.

Service was very good, multiple persons asked if they could help, and when I took my selections up to the counter, the cashier suggested that I might like to have one of The Abyss he had in the back. I of course took him up on this offer.

Nice to see a beer store that is aware of what the customers it has might be looking for, and has the products to supply them.

This has become my new go to spot.

Excellent!

I'm really happy to have found this place. I have wasted a lot of time going to other stores and also driving a long way for good selections.

Please note: they have a back beer room! I went there twice before noticing it. It's in the fridge section on the right, and there's a door. Back there are some of the more amazing selections. People searching for Pliney the Elder would be happy to know they carry it.

I don't know the name of the guy that helped me pick out some singles, but he had tried them all and had something interesting to say about each, and he was quick to suggest things based on what I was in the mood for.

They occasionally have beer tastings in the store. Fun seasonal selections.

Also carry cigars and a good selection of wine.

Just picked up 6 bombers 1 hour ago. Prices are excellent, and they really have a good craft brew selection. Someone working there definitely knows beer. Kind of a smaller store, I was a bit hesitant going in, but they have a top notch selection, I would put it on par with Davidsons for craft beer bombers, and it is definitely cheaper.

The staff was friendly and suggested that I would be interested in a wine/beer tasting in a month or so, which of course I am. Also the store was very clean, and had quite nice carpet. (usually, don't see carpet in a liqueur store...)

Check it out!

Great beers, for those who know them, are always difficult to find. Most liquor superstores are glad to stock ample amounts of domestic "corn-flavored water" but miss the boat on the hard to find and relished "big-beers". This little gem of a store is nestled in the middle of suburbia and features some of the finest individual and intimate selections of quality import, domestic, and hard to find beers around. Recognized nationally, this store continues to pull in a wide audience who know that this is a store with a purpose and goal in mind to spoil the beer faithful! Should you be in the neighborhood (or even outside of it) stop in and peruse the delights, or pull some of the store personnel off to the side and get a singular analysis of your perfect beer fit (have them take you into the cooler area for some un-shelved personal selections!). Great service from great people who strive to have an exceptional selection.
