A perfect place for the situation I was in: no beer and just got back from a beer fest. I know, I know....more beer? yes...and this place had it.

Expected a basic liquor store and got a whammy of a surprise. Next to the City Market (they take CM discount cards...are they connected?), it's a good sized place. Nice selection of wine, liquor (some high end stuff) and beer. One warm shelf of bombers, 4pks and clearance stuff, and about 10 doors of craft. While not the best selection I've see--and that's not a bad thing--it had some gems. Picked up a 2013 Sucaba, the last one, and a SSmith Org chocolate. Drank the latter, storing the former.

Service seemed alright, but I didn't ask or need anything. Typical pricing, some sales.

A friend of mine and I were fortunate enough to stop here twice during a recent ski trip to the Keystone/Breck/Vail area. At first glance, it seems just like your above average liquor store with a pretty solid selection of local 6'ers, modest selection of bombers, etc. at very reasonable prices. However, if you are there, make sure and ask for Chris and talk to him about what's not on the shelf. They pack some serious heat that isn't on display. Doing this landed us 7 fresh bottles of PtE and some other great stuff not out in the coolers. Also, if you know you're just going for one specific thing, grab something at the adjacent grocery store and on the back of the receipt will be a 10% off coupon. Great store overall!

Just of the highway and easy to find in ski town Dillon, this is a well stocked wine, booze and beer distribution point. Most of the beer is in the store width cooler unit all along the rear of the store. Piles and piles of cases are running up and down the middle of place. You will find full lines of all the expected Colorado good stuff producers and a respectable representation of the rest of the quality beer world. They also carry some glass ware. I was happy to re stock up on items from New Belgium, Left Hand and Odell. Staffed by a crew of typically friendly Coloradians, this place is clean, well lit and well worth a visit if driving through the area to or from Summit County's world famous ski destinations.

To find it don't use Google maps, it will do you wrong. Its located in the shopping mall on the left as you go up hill from route 70, (just a mile or two from the highway) in the town of Dillon

Found this place on the last day of a trip to Breckenridge (6 Feb 2009). Address on receipt is 294 Dillon Ridge Rd., in a shopping center just off Hwy 6 and close to Dillon Dam Brewery (not where Google points to).

Good selection of local Colorabo micros including Odell, Boulder, New Belgium, Oscar Blues and Back Country. They also carry a few out of state micros including Victory, Russian River and a few others. On the downside, they do not allow you to mix six packs and did not have very many one offs or rarities (did find Odell Woodcut here). Help was available when I asked for it.

Probably the best beer store in the area.

Stopped by on my recent trip to Colorado based on the good recommendations I read here. Great selection of Colorado breweries..I couldn't really think of any breweries that weren't represented. The one surprising thing was I didn't really notice anything I would consider a "find"....nothing unusual, or "limited". It may just have been the time of year, but based on reading the forums on here and all the limited/special edition brews people talk about I thought I would find at least one. In any case, certainly worth a stop to stock up on Colorado brews to take home.

For those of us who live in the high country, this place is an oasis. From my experience of shopping for beer in the mountains, Dillon Ridge is the best beer store on the I-70 corridor west of Golden. They've got a thorough selection of Colorado six-packs, with good seasonal offerings for all of the state's craftbrewers and occasionally they get something (Boulder's Killer Penguin Barleywine, for example) that I couldn't find anywhere else outside of the Front Range.

Anytime I ski at one of the Summit County areas, I make it a point to swing through here and at least check out what they've got. Any non-CO resident visiting Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, Keystone or the like should be sure to stop in to grab some local brews. They've also got a good selection of other mountain breweries: Snake River, Big Sky, Eddie McStiff's, as well as plenty of import and CA selections. This is also one of the only places in the mountains to carry Dogfish Head.

Highly recommended.

This place is worth a stop especially if you are in the Keystone/Copper Mountain/Dillon area.

The selection is pretty descent. They have a lot of regional mountain beers that are not available anywhere else in the state, like Palisade Red Truck and other notable offerings. Stone bombers, Great Divide bombers and many 6 packs are in stock. I found some Stone Imperial Russian Stout and Maverick 2003 here. They also have beers from the Backcountry brewery.

The prices seemed fair as well.

Give this place a stop if you are in the area.
