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.

This place is great - I am rating it as someone who was only visiting Denver, however I was impressed with the terrific locals and selection of both import and domestic craft brews. Picked up a ton of beer I can't get in MA. Great selection of sours and funk and the prices were incredibly reasonable. Highly recommend it, really friendly guys that clearly love beer too.

Been a fan for a little while, but becoming a regular place for me to hit up. Prices are good considering the location. Staff is helpful and responsive via facebook or other social media outlets.

For a store downtown and somewhere rated so high, I didn't see the big deal. They advertised for stuff that wasnt in the coolers (I understand you sell out of stuff, but don't hide everything in back), their selection was equivalent to what I would find at Whole Foods, there wasn't much help. Just didn't get the vibe at all for this place. There are many better shops in and around the city.

Stopped in here while I was in Denver since it was the top rated place downtown. OK shop with lots of wine and liquor and a relatively small beer selection. Some good bottles like a BA Avery brew and some Crooked Stave Origins. Other than that, most of what I saw here is on the shelves here in Florida. Pretty disappointing to go to such a big beer city and find that this is the best that’s offered in terms of bottle shops. Service was very nice, and prices were OK. Not worth going way out of your way for, but if you’re walking around in that part of town, might as well stop in. I am guessing if you live in town it is easier to access things that come out periodically as special releases.
