vibe: 4 | quality: 4 | service: 2.5 | selection: 3.5

A reasonable atmosphere, typical liquor store lighting, a little dark. The beer selection was considerable for its size. Carried the colorado staple micros, NB, Avery, Odell's etc... Decent Belgians. The man who I checked out with was nice, besides him there was not much going on in the way of service. Nothing special, just a liquor store. The pricing was also what one can expect. A little more than you should pay, but hey we can't all buy beer in low tax states such as AZ. And to be in CO its nice to pay a little extra for the solid selection.

Prices on beer are reasonable, and the selection is decent. They do have a good selection of single bottle Belgian beers. Mainly, I shop here when I am in the area due to the prices, and they carry many of the micro-brews that a subscriber to the Beer Advocate will be looking for.

If you are looking for atmosphere, this is really a warehouse type store, no reason to linger beyond finding the beer you want and heading home. The staff leave you in peace, without any need for banter at the check out counter.

Arrow is a pretty good liquor store. I'm a beer guy, and they have a pretty good selection. They have lots of imports, which I'm not big on, and they have a decent Colorado beer selection. They also have some harder to find national microbrews; Ommegang, Kona, etc...
They have a great wine selection, and I'm not sure about their liquor selection.
The checkout guy was friendly, but there was no one assisting people with selections.
It's good because I live across the street, but there are better beer selections in the neighborhood.

I stopped in while in Littleton visiting my Mom.

It was my fiance's 21st birthday and this was the first large liquor store she had been to, and she was like a kid in a candy store.

I was mainly there to pick up a few brews for the 4th of July. They carry the full lines of most of the Colorado micros and plenty of other regional micros and Belgians, Germans, etc. I picked up Ska Brewing's Decadent IIPA and Breckenridge's Oatmeal Stout. It was the first time I had seen a bomber of Sierra Nevada's Pale Ale, don't see that in NJ.

They have a huge wine selection and I was helped out in picking out a nice Rioja for my fiance's birthday dinner.

They also sell a limited amount of beer glassware and I picked up a New Belgium Fat Tire pint glass for 2 bucks.

Pretty good liquor store...not a haven for beer, but certainly something to quench your thirst.

Not a bad stop, and located in an area where it's the best overall option!
Located in the shopping center behind the Bowles Crossing movie theater (and across Wadsworth from Southwest Plaza), it's easy to miss.
Pretty solid local selection and quite a few "random" beers including the entire Unibroue line-up which was a nice surprise. They also carry some things that other places might not. For instance, I'm a lager fan and Ft. Collins Brewery's whole line-up is there, too.
Random items (like Stone's 10th Anniversary) are also there and usually with good availability.
They're not the best stop for cold bombers, but if you look at the wall near the check-outs, there are a LOT of bombers you might not see anywhere else.
The prices are normal, too.
Definitely a good stop. There are essentially 4 stops I make on the south end of town (Davidson's, Heritage, Merchant of Vino, Arrow) and this is one of 'em!
