Liquor Max is much larger inside than it would seem from an outside glance: the whole store is packed high with booze, and the beers, the micros in particular, occupy a long wall on "looker right" as you enter the store.
There are lots of liquor stores along the Front Range with top notch and current options from around the western US, but what sets Liquor Max apart is its selection of Belgians and non-Western (US) craft brews that can't be found elsewhere in the state. I picked up two singles of Victory Old Horizontal, contemplated some Blanche de Chambly and Cantillon, and opted for a four-pack of Flying Dog's Double Dog, which other places like Total Beverage haven't gotten yet.
Liquor Max joins the Mt. Rushmore of Colorado liquor stores along with Total Beverage (Thornton), Bubbles (Castle Rock), and Liquor Mart (Boulder). If you can't find it at one of these places, you're not gonna find it in the Centennial State.

I stopped by while in the area on business.
The place is big but most of the stock is wine and spirits. The beer selection is fairly limited in numbers but the quality is very good. And most of their stock is refrigerated too. They had several sours and Belgian styles from Russian River (no Pliny though).
I can't really comment on the service. I didn't ask for any help and no one offered it. But they seemed nice enough.
I don't know the area well but Liquor Max seems worth a visit (especially for someone from the east coast looking for something to take home).

Liquor Max was close to our hotel, so I happily popped in for a visit.
It's really a mixed bag here. The selection is both great, and crappy at the same time. The number of options for beer is low. However, some of the items available are great. I'm a sucker for vintage beers, and they had 08 Stone IRS, 07 Alaskan Smoked Porter and 08 Alaskan Barleywine available (and marked as 'vintage' buys). There were a couple other old (06/07) bottles that didn't move my needle, but maybe they would move yours.
There is a lot of local beer (a plus), but not much else outside of deshutes, stone and lost abbey and a few Belgian offerings.
For me, the vintage goodies made my day. If I was close, I'd visit all the time to see what was brought out; however, you'll pay for those older bottles.

On my way back from a Ft. Collins tour of breweries I hit this place. I've heard great things from other BAers, so I didn't think I'd be let down. But I was.
Yup, sure, this place is great for Loveland and the Fort, but coming from Denver, this isn't a worthy stop. Perhaps if they had some rare beers or great prices, but I saw neither.
Big warehouse type layout. I think they had about 2 doors of "malt-ternatives" like Jooce (?) and such, and a separate cooler section of BMC. The Micros were sloppily placed and some were just empty. Warm section was not a single shelving unit, but small islands with some nice Fantomes. Some older bottles of Rochefort and Alaskan Smoked Porter were on sale. All in all, a nice selection, but nothing worth the trip if you live out of town.
Service was non-existent; I didn't ask for help (or bought anything) and non was offered. Average in my book.
