A-Mr. B's is a clean, medium-sized store in a new-ish apartment building just north of the central business district in Denver. The place is well-lit, well-laid out, and easy to shop in. There isn't much charm to the place, but if you're looking to buy beer instead of hang out, it will do just fine.

Q-As much as I hate to use the word "curated," the beer selection at Mr. B's is exactly that, curated. The place pulls in great limited local releases, top-end stuff from national craft brewers, established imports, and more unique stuff that you won't find elsewhere in Denver. Probably the best shop in terms of high-quality stuff in all of Denver.

Ser-Every time I have been to Mr. B's the staff have been friendly without being overbearing. They ask if you need help, and if you decline, they let you browse in peace. If you want help, however, they'll provide it, and they know their beers. This, in my opinion, is exactly how it should work.

Sel-Although the quality of the brews is quite high, this is not the biggest selection in town. If you want to wander through aisles and aisles of beer, this is not the place. Instead, they have a few coolers of craft, a non-cooled shelf of craft, and a few more coolers of macro product. Its not a bad selection, by any means, but it isn't large when compared to the competition in town.

V-The prices are on the higher end of things, but that is because the beer is on the higher end of things. Compared against other downtown liquor stores, the prices here are quite reasonable and it is only when you cross-shop against the suburban mega-stores that prices seem high.

All in all, this is one of the best craft bottle shops in town.

** From notes taken 9/14 **

After a long day of driving, and subsequently losing my ID, the stand-up crew at Mr. B's made me feel welcomed and appreciated.

Focused selection with little in the way of filler. Nice rare/sour selection with commensurate pricing. A large majority of the beer inventory is in coolers...wild!

All the locals that matter are represented. Crooked Stave, Funkwerks, River North etc.

Odell, and the other Colorado classics are there of course. Plenty of regionals, including Prairie, Boulevard, and Santa Fe, plus Stillwater, Evil Twin and many more.

No complaints here and will definitely stop in when in Denver again.

This is the go-to bottle shop in downtown Denver. A great selection of local beer with a mix of somewhat hard to find bottles. Can be very busy in the evenings on the weekend, so keep that in mind.

Mr. B's is the best beer store in downtown Denver. Need more? Keep on reading ...

Everything is easy to find. The entire right-hand side cooler and back cooler is all beer, and there's an island end-cap the features some higher-end offerings. The selection is solid and mostly American with plenty of local/regional love, but there's a good number of specialty imports that lean towards the obscure (end-cap and singles in the cooler).

Brothers/owners Jared and Scott Blauweiss + their staff are awesome. Service is outstanding; always friendly and incredibly helpful. And I've never seen dead beers on the shelves, which are kept very clean and tidy.

They also host quite a few special releases and tastings; follow their social media and sign up for their newsletter.

Stuffy location which means stuffy prices, okay selection. If you're mobile you can find it at a better price.
