If you're in the area, I would recommend this place. A better than average selection of micros, including local seasonal bombers, which don't seem common enough around the Denver area. I'd say the space devoted to micros vs. macros is at least 50/50. There is an aisle of micro/import singles and glassware, with different singles available in the coolers. Also found the New Belgium Folly Pack so that I could get my hands on the Cherry Ale. Good enough. Prices were fair, and right up the road is Dry Dock Brewing Co. I'd suggest making an afternoon or evening of the two.

When I moved over to this side of town I was concerned I would have to drive all over town to find decent beer. This store has solved my problems!
Lots of bombers including some UK and German imports you won't see anywhere else...even the megastores.
There are probably 10 cooler doors dedicated to craft beer and imports, and you'll find most local offerings here. They don't have complete line-ups from everyone, but you'll spot almost any major brews that we can get in the region. The staff don't all seem to beer big beer people, BUT their selection implies that someone involved with the store is.
It's not perfect, but if you live in Aurora this is probably the best beer store in the area.
This is probably the best neighborhood store in SE Denver, so stop in if you're in the area.

EDIT: Recently they've expanded their beer selection to encompass a non-refrigerated aisle with seasonals, bombers, and a ton of glassware. This is by far the closest store to me and 90% of the time they have exactly what I want, especially as of late. It's good to see the store embracing the beer crowd.

EDIT #2: Mixed 6-packs are now available, too. This store is now among the best non-superstore beer shops in the metro area now.

Chambers is your best bet if you're in Aurora looking for beer. They have a wall of coolers and have a decent selection of microbrews and imports. They have all the usual suspects from Colorado (New Belgium, Great Divide, etc...) along with Stone, DFH, Unibroue and so on. They recently started carrying more Belgians and now regularly have LaTrappe, St. Bernardus, Duchesse de Bourgogne, Saison Dupont, etc... They get most of the special releases from Stone and Avery and have most of the local seasonals in stock. They also have a nice glassware selection.

Besides their beer, they also have a large wine and liquor selection. Great place to stop if you're in the area or live nearby.

This is a pretty great store and I am usually there every Saturday stocking up. There is a good selection of bombers although they had way more before the blizzard of '03 crushed the roof. They always have good sales on craft beer. Lots of Colorado brews (no Oskar Blues Gordon :( ) Not sure if the staff is knowledgeable since i never need assistance. Their sales extend to the liquor and wine as well so you can catch good deals no matter what you are looking for. They also have a nice selection of glassware.

The store's selection of wines is great and probably the reason that my girlfriend has been a repeat shopper there for years.

The liquor selection is also pretty good, but I'm here for the beer!

A walk-in cooler runs the length of the store's west wall. About the same amount of floor and shelf space is devoted to cases (mostly macros) sold at room temperature.

The stock from the brewing giants is pretty standar, the import selections are reasonably priced compared to other stores in the area.

There are a lot of craft brews from across the country in the cooler. A lot of them are available in 12-packs, something I've not seen in many of the other stores in the area.

Chambers has the biggest selection of Colorado-brewed beers that I've seen anywhere. Bristol Brewing, Breckenridge Brewery, Tommyknocker's, New Belgium Brewing, Jarre Creek Ranch Brewery, Flying Dog, Great Divide Brewing, Odell Brewing and others all have a fair amount of cooler space.

The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, willing to help and always have a smile.

I'm still learning my way around Colorado, but this is by far the best beer and liquor store that I've found.
