This is my favorite place to explore for new and exciting beers. They have an excellent selection and a staff that really knows their stuff. I once had a gentleman walk me through the Belgians and explain which ones he recommended and why. He had tried most of them as the employees are encouraged to do.

The place is very clean and well organized. It's never too busy and I've never found anything that's expired or past-prime. It really is a destination liqour store. We just happen to be lucky enough to have it nearby.

Vibe? Its a grocery store type of place to buy beer to go.

Always the place to stop and visit for brews to go in Fort Collins. Service has always been good. Prices seem fair, and the selection is top notch.
Check it out, you won't go home empty handed.

Great selection of bombers, good number of breweries, both local and national. We make trips to Ft Collins just for beer runs, and this is usually where we go.

Not recommended - very poor service. Their selection and size is great - but their cashiers are extremely UN-informed, rude and ridiculous to be honest.

While purchasing wine, I was asked for both my ID and my wife's ID. My wife at no point held, handled or carried the alcohol. The cashier said she would not sell to me (the person with ID and whom was paying) because my wife didn't have her ID with her. We then asked if we could JUST purchase the pint glasses we also wanted (no alcohol) - we were refused then as well.

Yes there's a college campus very close - yes people try to buy alcohol that are not of age - but if you verify the ID of the person purchasing the alcohol why does anything else matter?

To note - we're both 30+ years of age and frequent the shopping center where this store is located. We'll never go back again. Completely ridiculous...

As many have pointed out the selection is by far one of the best in town and it rotates it stock constantly. I have seen write ups on various foreign and local beers and thought I'd like to try them, damn if I don't find them at Wilbur's! Yep bring your credit card cause your going to need it. I have requested various non local beers in keg form - I'm not too crazy on the request ie. various Roque or Alaskan, and local in 6ths or 1/4s and they get them for me. I've noticed a lot of reviews stating the staff isn't that great and it's anything but, yes they don't bother you - browse to your hearts content but if you have a question and ask, they are right there with the answer, or recommendations. I'm not a wine guy - I enjoy it but don't take the time to educate myself, so I rely on recommendations and the Wilbur's staff have never led me wrong. I would give them 5.0 rating but I drop a lot of coin there and they have a rewards program- spend a grand and you get 10 bucks and a 10% off purchase coupon. A bit weak but on the flip side - I have gone in for various cases of wine or beer that was on sale a few days prior but the sale ended and they had no problem giving me the sale price so kudos on that!
