A big, well-stocked liquor store with a wall of craft beers.

There is an alright selection, and maybe even a great one for Longmont. However, it is not that big. They do have a decent build-your-own-six-pack selection, mainly of things that are fairly common in the area, but nonetheless better than some other places on the front range. Most of the stuff I'd well priced but the bombers were a little expensive IMO.

The store is nice enough and laid out well, the staff was not overly helpful but not outright rude. The location is way out of the way, but considering how few bottleshops there are in Longmont it isn't too awful bad.

I ran across PJ's while I was searching for a store in CO that had a reserve of TenFidy. Why must TenFidy be seasonal? I never know what to put for atmosphere for a store. It's just a store. It had lots of bottles and cans on shelves...so, outstanding I guess. I looked at their website and saw they have specials on 12pks - about $1-2 dollars less than other places. Very good then. They don't have as many coolers as some places so they don't have a lot of anything, but have a little of everything. Their weak point is their selection of larger bottles and singles - it's very small for a place that size. I suppose it may be a hard sell when you've got Oskar Blues, Left Hand, and Pumphouse just down the street filling growlers. I bought a case of Dale's pale ale and a 4pk of Deviant. They only had 2 Deviant 4pks and 1 was really banged up so I left it. I was also looking for Upslope Brown when a guy asked if he could help. The only Upslope Brown they had was also a little beat up, so again I passed. The guy said that Upslope was going to be there the next day from 3-6pm with free samples and that you get a free beer gift if you buy a 12pk. I returned the next day and was informed the Upslope rep was a no-show, but was offered a free extra can if I bought a 6pk and 2 with a 12pk. Still, no Upslope Brown and nothing else I was after so I made no purchase. At least they made the effort when the rep did not show up. I would return if in the area, but would not make a special trip.
