I was referred to this interesting little store from Coaltrain liquor, which is one of the best spot for beer in Colorado Springs. I was looking for 2009 Abyss and Coaltrain was out, but they said that if anybody in the Springs had any left it would be Crown. Sure enough, they had maybe 10 bottles left. I was there last week and they still had some. On another occasion I found 2007 Sierra Nevada Bigfoot in one of their coolers! Back then I didn't realize what it was, and when I went back to buy it all they had run out. Anyway, this store is small and looks inside like the hundreds of local small liquor stores that sell some wine, liquor and common cheap beers. If you look through their coolers however, you will find small sections of beer rarities that often can't be found anywhere else in the city. I have never talked to the owner, but only the clerks who work the counter. They have always been helpful and sometimes know a bit about the beer. If you want to find interesting beer check this place out, it is my second favorite spot in Colorado springs and they keep all their beer in coolers, which is a major plus in my opinion.
