Coaltrain is right off I-25 at the Uintah St exit, about three blocks from Colorado College and only a few minutes from downtown Colorado Springs. If anyone's doing a Beer Tour of the Springs, it's a nice place to finish (after Bristol, Phantom Canyon, and Arctic Craft) before heading out of town.

As other reviewers have mentioned, this is mostly a wine-oriented shop, but they've got a great beer selection--a good mix of imports, Colorado micros (mostly from Front Range breweries--but this is the only place south of Denver I've seen carry The Fort Collins Brewery line), and high-end US micros. Amongst others, they had Deschutes' Abyss, Full Sail Bourbon Stout, Sierra Nevada IPA, several vintages of Left Hand barley wines, and the full gamut of Bristol bombers.

It was the service that really stood out for me, though. They scoured the store room for bombers of Bristol's Pumpkin Ale and sold me a handful of them from their personal stash, long after they had left the front-of-house stock. That kind of gesture is more than enough to make me poke my head in any time I'm in the Springs.

This is a small, but excellent beer store.

Can't believe I'm about to say this but this place has too much beer. Or maybe not enough building. Either way they have an amazing selection. You could do a full Belgian tasting just from what they have on the shelf. The six packs selection is just good but the single bottle selection is staggering. They have all the mikeller, eclipse of every color and evil twin you could ever want and the most comprehensive selection of Colorado beers I've seen. Prices can be a tad high but, they have what you want!

I love this place! I wish I lived closer to it.

The building is a little cramped, kind of outdated. They make the most of the space they have. Tons of beers, huge selection.

They have a friendly and knowledgeble staff. I've used them every time for recommendations. They seem to have a connection to the local brewers like Bristol.

They have a lot of microbrews, interesting and unique beers that can be hard to find anywhere else.

Prices are always reasonable, but I've never got a huge bargain shopping there.

Overall, I recommend any beer enthusiast check this place out that happens to be in the area.

Coaltrain is a great bottle shop to visit if you are in the Colorado Springs area. If you are simply traveling through, like my wife and I, it is also very convenient, just off the highway. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but there is plenty to choose from once you get inside.

S - Service was great. Not only was he very helpful with what was in the store, but he shared with me some of the rarer stuff, they had just received. I love it when stores do this without prompting.

Sel. - Selection was awesome. There was more local stuff than any of the other Colorado stores we visited during our trip. Also, had several non-local beers that the other shops did not have.

I would recommend this shop to any one visiting or just driving through Colorado Springs.
