Decent sized place with a good selection of Belgians and other foreign beers. The staff wasn't very knowledgeable. Bought a bottle and they had issues ringing it up, because they were unsure of what it was. They had a decent display in the back for it, and in my mind if you are highlighting a beer, the staff should know it.

Good selection of beers, lotsa Colorado beers on hand. One of the best selection of Belgian beers in Colorado Springs. Prices are OK, about average with the other big stores in town. Their staff isn't the most knowledgeable about beer though.

I've been to this liquor store many times, although it's too far away from where I live. Getting in and out is easy, and there is ample parking. One of the benefits to this liquor store is that you pay 5.23% sales tax instead of 7.63%. When you are spending $50+ each time you come, you notice the savings.

The selection here is great, although it can be challenging to find things sometimes. They have a nice mix-n-match 6-pack cooler, they have a great selection of Ciders, and they have a whole aisle of craft beer "bombers" and specialties that are not refridgerated.

Wine selection is excellent, and well priced. I've found some really good deals here, especially with rebates.

Speaking of prices, they seem to be pretty good all around. In addition, I've gotten some very good deals on sale items as well.

I've talked to many employees at the store and have gotten good wine and beer recommendations from them. They seem to have a good staff on hand.

I haven't used it yet, but they do have a drive-through for quicker access to stuff if you know exactly what you'd like.

Overall, I really like the combination of quality selection and fair prices that PLM provides. My biggest problem with them is that I don't live closer.

This is a big warehouse type of store, with most of the floor space taken by wine and liquor (I have heard they have an excellent selection of wines). The beer is located in coolers that line the left hand side of the store, with a tiny section of single/specialty/bombers in the back. If you are looking for a good selection of single bottles and specialty brews, this is not the place to go. I have been to small neighborhood stores that have more. But if you want six-packs, this place has a fairly good selection of micros and local beers, you just have to buy six at a time. Worth checking out, but not the best in town. The staff has always been knowledgeable and helpful to me.

Not a bad little spot to check out if your in the area. They have a good selection of macro/micro beers available. The specialty beer section is small, but fairly decent quality. Usually have some rarer stuff left in stock after most places are sold out.

Prices are about average, perhaps a bit on the expensive size for six packs. But singles are right where they should be fo the most part.

Like I said, nothing special, but worth checking out or at least giving them a call if you can't find a bottle at other stores in town.

Found this place in an older strip mall off of South Powers out by Peterson AFB. It is right next door to a bar called Porkys. Selection was alright but subpar to alot of other places in town. They did not have the gems nor the selection but still had a few good beers. I picked up a bomber of Alaska Big Nugget and they did have some Great Divide 15th Anvy plus some Choco Yeti. Service was good, got to the countr and they clerk said he liked barleywines too and that I had made a good choice in that one. He obviously knew Big Nugget was a good one so the service is above par compard to alot of oter stores in town.
