Stopped by this store during a recent trip to Denver. This is basically a nice small liquor store in a really nice neighborhood outside of downtown. The shop was lad out nicely and very clean with a nice decor. It's pretty small but they had a nice selection of wines and a back wall with around ten coolers filled with beer.

The service at this place was pretty good. Two different employees approached me while browsing and were very helpful without being pushy.

The selection was decent with standard local six packs and bombers but they did have Woodcut #4, two Funkwerks bottles and a few nice imports. Small section but most beers are of high quality. Nothing is sold room temperature and it's a bit pricier than other stores in the area but it's worth checking out.

I stopped by this place in the highlands neighborhood just because I had heard some good things online. They had a decent selection of singles and sixers but nothing really mindblowing. I picked up some of the new Odell Red Ale and a Golden City Legendary Red. The selection was better than the average liquor store but if you want a crazy selection you have to go to Lukas or Total Beverage. I'd imagine that their focus is on wine but they get an e for effort on the beers. I will be checking back because I heard they would be receiving Consecration.

Been to Mondo Vino a few times. Overall, it's a very impressive establishment...for wine. The store specializes in wine and they have some very well versed staff members who know a hell of a lot about wine. I wish I could say the same about the beer selection. I'm not saying it's an afterthought for them, but on one of my visits I heard a misinformed beer buyer spewing off some serious BS to a customer. A customer asked about lambics and he mentioned Lindeman's and Liefman's, but didn't mention Cantillon....The beer selection is ok and you can tell that there is some enthusiasm behind the selection, but the selection is very limited. That being said, this may be your best bet for the Downtown area, unless you want to head south to Davidson's or head to Northern Colorado.

Stopped by on my walk as I just moved into the area. Thinking it was a wine shop I was surprised to the beer selection. Quite impressive, really. Bigger stores would have more, but this selection will do. The singles section is the key and provides good variety. Mostly domestic, but a good few imports....thankfully, no Kingfisher. Saw a couple of Golden City Brewery selections. I'll have to get me some.
Service was friendly and helpful. I popped in for recon and will now have to go back for purchasing. It was a bit pricey, but for the part of town it's in, not bad.

Rolled on over to Mondo Liquors, one of our first stops for our week in Denver. Really a nice place inside and out, great storage for the wine, tons of, well, nothing but refrigeration for the beer. All of it. I don't think there is any beer that is not refrigerated here.

Quality is very good, just all kinds of good stuff running the gamut of styles and places. Imports, locals etc. . .

Very helpful people there. Good chit chat. Amazing selection, there's tons of stuff. Some of the cooler stuff I picked up was Barrel Aged Boris, Consecration, Oud Floris, Victory BA Storm King, BA Ruffian etc. . . but it isn't just the bombers, they have good 4/6 packs, picked up some terribly, undated Specher dipa just because I was shocked to find it, I know its not particularly good.

Only downside was their prices are the highest in Denver from what I can tell. $13 for Oud Floris, found it for $10 at DaveCo.

Nonetheless, I still recommend you make the trip over and check this place out, lots and lots of stuff. Wine and spirits section nothing to sneeze at either.

After reading the reviews of Mondo, I decided to stop by and check things out. The store is near my house, which is a big plus.

Don't let the name fool you. Yes, wine is their specialty, but beer doesn't get short changed. Along the west wall is a full row of coolers that's well stocked with everything they carry. You won't find warm bottles sitting out here.

Selection is hard to judge. Six-pack selection is nice, put not over the top great. It's in the 22oz and 750ml singles where things get interesting. If you're looking for many CO and US craft beers that are easy to find elsewhere, you honestly might not find them here. However, if you're in the mood to browse the coolers and pickup beers that you've never seen before, this is your place. It's almost as if someone from the store shopped the competition, and made sure to order things they didn't see at other stores. I grabbed a bottle of Belgoo Magus simply because I knew I'd never seen it anywhere else in the Denver area.

The staff here is very helpful; perhaps overly so if you like to be left alone while you shop. Even on a Sunday, they had four people working. The man that helped me was quite knowledgeable. He even went in the back and found their last bottle of Stone Self-Righteous for me. A very nice perk.

Prices are on par with other stores in the area. When I was there, all the singles (even La Folie!) were 15% off. I will definitely be back here in the future.
