A-Argo is a pretty good sized store with a slightly gritty feel thanks to its location on Colfax. The old building was a bit dumpy (but kind of charming) and the new building has really improved the layout. That being said, the organization is good, the place is clean, and there is always a lot of action, which is kind of fun.

Q-The beer selection includes a good assortment of sixers from Colorado brewers, a broad array of high-end imports from the old world, and an OK collection of beers from other craft hot-spots like California, the NW, and NE, as well as a pretty good mix of high-quality bombers and larger bottles. I rarely find rare beers here (and not all of the bombers are chilled), but I can always count on finding something decent when I visit. Turn-over is high, which is good because you'll probably get fresh beer, but bad because the more limited production beers don't stick around the shelves very long.

Ser-As others have mentioned, you will be left alone unless you seek out assistance. However, I have never had trouble finding an employee and the few times I have asked, the employees seem knowledgeable, if a bit gruff and curt.

Sel-Argo maintains a broad array of beers from here in Colorado and abroad. They could do better with a mixer-sixer selection and better with non-Colorado craft, but for sheer volume of different brands from Colorado and outside of the United States, they are near the top of the list.

V-Argo's prices are in line with the rest of the market. You can find an occasional sale that makes Argo really competitive, but the good stuff rarely gets marked down. (1,617 characters)

Visited what appeared to be a relatively new store. The overall selection was good and they did have some unique/rare one-off beers, but not many. The staff was helpful in finding some unique beers. Would visit again in the future. (231 characters)

Customer service here was awesome. Told them we were from out of state and they brought me into the back to show me the limited/special release items in the back and also made solid suggestions for great local beers. Terrific store. (234 characters)

They have just about everything you would expect to find in a store this size, and they don't seem to discriminate in terms of what they bring in. Sometimes you can find something special lingering on the shelf, but its better to be prompt if you know what you're looking for. (276 characters)
