V-Grapevine is a larger store (though not mega store a la Davidson's or Total Wine) on the eastern side of Denver. I really like the somewhat rough and tumble feel inside, lower ceilings, kind of messy appearance, etc. The place is not "corporate" feeling by any means, but it feels friendly...like a place with lots of regular customers.

Q-The beer is split between a big selection in coolers (including a walk-in bomber room) and a general mish-mash of boxes with beer that is stored warm on the floor. I don't care much about warm storage if the beer moves quickly, but I did notice some older bottles on the floor (like pumpkin beers from last fall and some expired IPAs). Most of the beer was within date range and the quality of beers on offer is quite good.

Ser-The place was moderately busy when I shopped on an early Friday evening, so the employees were tied up. Still, it took me a good 15 minutes of browsing around before someone asked me if I needed help...if you want help, ask for it I guess. That being said, the employees were very friendly and seemed to have an understanding of the beer they were selling.

Sel-Here is where Grapevine shines. They have a great selection of craft. Large format bottles, sixers and small format bottles, Colorado beer, imports, and U.S. craft were all well represented. I saw a few bottles of rarer beers that I thought had been long gone from Colorado shelves, as well as more obscure stuff like Russian, Israeli, and Lithuanian beers, in addition to the usual lineup. Nice.

O-Prices were reasonable and this was a very pleasant surprise. If it weren't halfway to Kansas, I would shop here a lot.

Diamond in the rough! great selection year round but keep an eye on their facebook page! they often hold rare beers and release them throughout the year

this place is a great hidden gem in Denver. They have amazing facebook deals all of the time and great blowout sales quite frequently. Add in a growing cellar collection and I am a huge fan. Wish they did a frequent members discount club though.

This place is great and has been my go to for years. The owner is a great guy and all of the employees are excellent. It's the same people every time you go in which is nice and they treat you like family.

The beer selection is top notch. They get virtually everything that comes through and I think they do a great job dealing with allocations. It's not uncommon to find something random from months ago hidden somewhere in plain sight in the cooler. Chris the beer guy really knows his stuff and stays on top of everything. They do a good job of moving the IPAs through but in the case of ones that are getting older they do a great job of marking those down and putting up signs with their ages. I think this is an under-appreciated service and not enough stores do this.

I also like how Grapevine negotiates deals with the distributors on beer that is going out of date. Sometimes you're in the mood for something decent and cheap. You never know what it's going to be but there have been a few that were ok. It's not always for everyone but it's another good service they offer that you don't find in every other store in town.
