The people who work here seem to genuinely know and appreciate their beer, which helps.
The selection is pretty strong, they carry most Colorado standards and I have found that with several beers that are more rare Liquor Mart is often the only place in Boulder to find them. Most recently I found a couple of Crooked Stave sours there that could not be found elsewhere. I have also snagged a bottle of Tactical Nuclear Penguin there for $82, a steal by my Chicago standards.
The mix six section is also pretty solid, although as several others have mentioned the individual beers are on the pricey side. Some of the bombers are also pretty high on the price spectrum.
If you need to get that tough to find bottle, or if you're in town and want to grab a mixed 6er or two of some local stuff, this is the place to be. If yo just want a 6-pack of some Oskar Blues or a bomber from Avery, check out something else.

Just recently had the privilege of visiting Liquor Mart. The beer department could not be more knowledgeable (and attractive I might add! The beer dept. is filled with studs!) or offer a better selection. This place is pure perfection and heaven in the form of a liquor store.
HIGHLY recommended if you're into good prices, great selection and sexy beer department employees.

REcently i moved out of Boulder, but I used to live right by Liquor Mart. This store literally has anything in it that you could ever need, but you should be ready to pay a little bit extra for the convienance. However, the staff can at times be rude and unhelpful. I was at this store once with a friend of mine who aditted to having beer or two before we arrived and we were turned away at the register. We politely agreed to leave, and a man wiht a pony tail still grabbed my friend by his arm and fo4rced him out. I know the industry, and worked in a liquor store on the other side of town at the time and found this to be completely unacceptable. I havnt been back since.

Stopped by after a half day of hiking near Boulder.
This looks like your basic mega-liquor-mart, but happens to have a fantastic singles selection. A whole row of single beers, both 12oz and bombers. Lots of local and regional stuff. An OK European selection as well. Very impressive for an out-of-towner, with lots of Colorado and West Coast representation. An employee came over and helped me pick out a couple local options.
Overall this places isn't just focused on beer, there were a lot of people buying liquor and cases of Bud Light. But they do have a fantastic/huge selection and the employee I talked to knew his stuff. Certainly worth a stop if you're in the Denver/Boulder area.

One of the best things about Boulder. Very nice selection of 6 packs, bombers, and the best build your own 6 pack selection that I have come across in the state. If they carry the beer it is probably available as a single, just awesome IMO. And their beer selection is complete. Good chance that if the beer is carried in the market they will carry it. The building is older, not too large, but organized nicely. Service is fine, generally you need help you have to ask for it and seek it but the help is there to be found. Reasonably priced, on par with market prcies imo. My big complaint is that they don't have a Denver location.

This use to be a regular shopping stop when I lived in Longmont a few years ago. I still stop in regularly when I'm in town, about every other month. As beer merchants in Colorado go, you'll be hard to find any place that regularly out competes any others when it comes to price. Selection, however, is a different story. Local residents may not realize how good this place is when compared to others around the country. The bomber choices are phenomenal and while a build your own six may be pricey, there are few other places that offer the variety of singles (not to mention the advantage of getting to sample beers from styles from which I'm hesitant to buy a six). The service is usually good, depending on who is in that day. The biggest ding, as if it mattered, is the atmosphere. It still retains the old grocery store look and can feel a bit on the grungy side. Never the less, worth a visit if your in town.
