The staff is always helpful and extremely knowledgable about all of their products. They have a great beer selection and note when items are reaching their end or their "brewed on" date. They have great sales and even their regular prices are tolerable for me and I am cheap!

I've been meaning to try this place for a while. Finally did after a Queen Mother burger from Bull and Bush....
A bit hard to find, it's with the sign "Discount Liquors" and hidden behind some trees and bushes. Not the most welcoming of places.
Upon entering I'm hit with a stack of Stillwater beers on display, along with some Paradox. To the left was the beer section with stacks and overstock all around. Then I noticed the overall space: concrete floor is a little drab. Not too cozy, but I'm here for beer.
The selection is nice, and it seems they try to carry every beer from the breweries they place on the shelves. Prices were a bit high, but not by much. The stacks were a bit chaotic, probably just overstock. Seemed the selections were separated by craft, macro and imports, with a separate section of doors for en masse packaging (cases and such).
Didn't ask for service but was approached twice. One guy was in deep discussion with another customer about beer. Good sign.
Added to my places of stops, which stretch across the Denver metro

This is maybe the most underrated craft beer store in Denver. Excellent selection, excellent pricing, knowledgeable service when the beer guy (who I think is the owner?) is there, and he's been there every time I've gone in. Prices seem to be equal to or slightly lower than Argonaut, which means that they are noticeably lower than Joy Wine & Spirits.
I am inclined to do about 80% of my shopping at Argonaut and 20% at Joy, because both are within a few blocks of my Capitol Hill townhouse. But I've made the effort to get over here recently and have really enjoyed it. There is an entire cooler shelf of Funkworks product here, for example. So what is that, maybe 6 or 8 different labels, across? Not two in the cooler and 2 or 3 on the warm shelf, 6-8 in the cooler. Last trip there were more Firestone Walker slots in the cooler than the last trip to Argonaut. Ditto the "good" Goose Island, Matilda and the Christmas beer in 4-packs in one cooler, Sofie and Pepe Nero and Pere Jacques all three in the bomber cooler (I believe last time I was at Argonaut they only had two of these three in the cooler). This is by no means intended to be a slam on Argonaut, which obviously has the resources to have more of an awful lot of things; just to point out that there is another store which allocates MORE cooler space to cool craft bombers than the two panels they have at Argonaut, despite being a smaller store.
Finally, nice attention to the locals, and also Colorado beers from elsewhere in the state. Those nice Elevation beers, Signal de Botrange, also the Apis IV, in the cooler last time I was there.
I don't think a ton of craft enthusiasts have found the place yet and stock can therefore get dated; when that happens he marks them way down. I don't mean they are past best by date, just sometimes nearing it. So if you missed something that's come and gone, it's always worth a trip over to Grapevine to see if they still have it.
