This is a nice spot on Evans across from Fagan's on on the DU campus "strip."
For a place that you'd assume is just a campus keg/macro case shop, there's an excellent selection of Colorado beers here! In fact, almost any of the craft brews that ship to the area can be found here. Entire 6-pack line-ups from Great Divide, New Belgium, Oskar Blues, Avery, Boulder, etc. are all here. You'll also find Deschutes, Sierra Nevada, Lagunitas, Stone, etc. as well.
Import section is a little more sparse, but they still have the major bavarian imports, a few belgian bombers, and the typical euro pales & mexican lagers you'd expect.
The bomber section is only 2 doors, but you'll find some unique bottles. In fact, the somewhat tough to find Samuel Smith Imperial Stout is available here. You'll also find items from Avery, Steamworks, Stone, etc.
It's not going to compete with superstore-style liquor stores, but at the same time I find myself going here more and more because it's closer to me and they still have the items I buy 95% of the time. It's good to see a campus store carrying so many good local brews, too. When you're expecting to see 15 coolers filled with Bud Light, this store is a VERY welcome sight.
The only knock on this store are the prices. Unless you're getting cases, they tend to be a little higher than some other stores. It's not a huge jump, but enough to possibly send you in another direction if this store isn't your closest option.

I knew I had to go in when I saw their sign boasting of Denver's best Microbrew selection.

Well, the micro selection is good, but not mind blowing. I'm not seeing anything here that I haven't seen before, but there are a couple of semi-rare bombers. On the upside, almost everything is in the coolers, which makes me happy. Prices are on par with other stores in the area.

The staff here is out of sight and out of mind. No one is saying a word to me until I hit the checkout stand. They're friendly enough, but not there to do much more than ring sales and stock the shelves. I doubt I'll be back here unless I'm in their end of town.

This is a college liquor store about 4 blocks from the University of Denver. So, they have their share of the Macros, but also a nice selection (relative) of Micros and imports. Being that I live in the area, this is a good place to get Rochefort, or some Colorado brews. Bomber selection is nice, but there always seems to be empty spots. Right now they are rearranging their wine section, so its a bit of a mess. Service was invisible. If you know what you want, it's good. If you have questions, ask BA.

Great selection for a neighborhood liquor store. I was tempted to give it a 4.5 on selection, but I guess it's not as good as some of the superstores. I was planning on visiting a few liquor stores to get everything I wanted for Thanksgiving, but I ended up being able to find everything here.

It's a little spendy. Seems like the GD Oak Aged Yeti was close to $9. If you are trying to track something down, there is a possibility that it could be here, and that could save you a trip to the burbs.

One of the register guys seemed to have a little bit of knowledge of craft beers, and we had a decent conversation about them.
