Amazing customer service! Knowledgeable, helpful and went above and beyond to help me out with some local and regional beers including some rare and limited releases. Can't speak highly enough about the staff and selection here.

Overall a good sized store with a huge selection and super knowledgeable and friendly staff. They constantly stock tons of cases of Crooked Stave & Bull & Bush (as well as some collaborations with them) and the staff is kind to throw some awesome beers on the shelves at random to have a surprise once in awhile. Ask to go in the back where they have a deep cellar of older vintages of beer. Mediocre selection otherwise, but incredible beer selection. A little out of the way, but you can always find gems here.

Had about 5 or 6 bottle shops mapped out to visit in Denver last weekend when we went to GABF for goodies to bring home. This was the first and last one visited. The service and bottle selection were both absolutely incredible. Filled two big boxes with bottles and glassware and quickly ran out of funds. Told the gentleman I was looking for barred aged imperial stouts and he was extremely helpful. So many choices and vintages of great beers and all easily accessible. Even got a discount for what I bought. Great shop and great experience, now if only I lived closer.

Vibe- This store is well layed out and just feels friendly. Its junked up enough to feel comfortable and orderly enough that you can find what you want.

Quality- They had a lot of the bigger beers and not very much old or out dated stuff.

Service- The staff was very friendly and helpful. I will shop here again. I enjoyed a few minutes of talking beer with the owner.

Selection- They have one of the best selections in town. Their walk-in bomber room is Awesome. The prices were competitive with other stores in the area.

Overall, this is a great store and I will return regularly.

V-Grapevine is a larger store (though not mega store a la Davidson's or Total Wine) on the eastern side of Denver. I really like the somewhat rough and tumble feel inside, lower ceilings, kind of messy appearance, etc. The place is not "corporate" feeling by any means, but it feels a place with lots of regular customers.

Q-The beer is split between a big selection in coolers (including a walk-in bomber room) and a general mish-mash of boxes with beer that is stored warm on the floor. I don't care much about warm storage if the beer moves quickly, but I did notice some older bottles on the floor (like pumpkin beers from last fall and some expired IPAs). Most of the beer was within date range and the quality of beers on offer is quite good.

Ser-The place was moderately busy when I shopped on an early Friday evening, so the employees were tied up. Still, it took me a good 15 minutes of browsing around before someone asked me if I needed help...if you want help, ask for it I guess. That being said, the employees were very friendly and seemed to have an understanding of the beer they were selling.

Sel-Here is where Grapevine shines. They have a great selection of craft. Large format bottles, sixers and small format bottles, Colorado beer, imports, and U.S. craft were all well represented. I saw a few bottles of rarer beers that I thought had been long gone from Colorado shelves, as well as more obscure stuff like Russian, Israeli, and Lithuanian beers, in addition to the usual lineup. Nice.

O-Prices were reasonable and this was a very pleasant surprise. If it weren't halfway to Kansas, I would shop here a lot.

If there's a better beer store (anywhere), I've never seen it. Don't forget to look in the cooler room. Don't see something you're looking for? Ask and you might be shocked to find that it's hiding somewhere.

this place is a great hidden gem in Denver. They have amazing facebook deals all of the time and great blowout sales quite frequently. Add in a growing cellar collection and I am a huge fan. Wish they did a frequent members discount club though.

This place is great and has been my go to for years. The owner is a great guy and all of the employees are excellent. It's the same people every time you go in which is nice and they treat you like family.

The beer selection is top notch. They get virtually everything that comes through and I think they do a great job dealing with allocations. It's not uncommon to find something random from months ago hidden somewhere in plain sight in the cooler. Chris the beer guy really knows his stuff and stays on top of everything. They do a good job of moving the IPAs through but in the case of ones that are getting older they do a great job of marking those down and putting up signs with their ages. I think this is an under-appreciated service and not enough stores do this.

I also like how Grapevine negotiates deals with the distributors on beer that is going out of date. Sometimes you're in the mood for something decent and cheap. You never know what it's going to be but there have been a few that were ok. It's not always for everyone but it's another good service they offer that you don't find in every other store in town.

The staff is always helpful and extremely knowledgable about all of their products. They have a great beer selection and note when items are reaching their end or their "brewed on" date. They have great sales and even their regular prices are tolerable for me and I am cheap!

I've been meaning to try this place for a while. Finally did after a Queen Mother burger from Bull and Bush....

A bit hard to find, it's with the sign "Discount Liquors" and hidden behind some trees and bushes. Not the most welcoming of places.

Upon entering I'm hit with a stack of Stillwater beers on display, along with some Paradox. To the left was the beer section with stacks and overstock all around. Then I noticed the overall space: concrete floor is a little drab. Not too cozy, but I'm here for beer.

The selection is nice, and it seems they try to carry every beer from the breweries they place on the shelves. Prices were a bit high, but not by much. The stacks were a bit chaotic, probably just overstock. Seemed the selections were separated by craft, macro and imports, with a separate section of doors for en masse packaging (cases and such).

Didn't ask for service but was approached twice. One guy was in deep discussion with another customer about beer. Good sign.

Added to my places of stops, which stretch across the Denver metro

This is maybe the most underrated craft beer store in Denver. Excellent selection, excellent pricing, knowledgeable service when the beer guy (who I think is the owner?) is there, and he's been there every time I've gone in. Prices seem to be equal to or slightly lower than Argonaut, which means that they are noticeably lower than Joy Wine & Spirits.

I am inclined to do about 80% of my shopping at Argonaut and 20% at Joy, because both are within a few blocks of my Capitol Hill townhouse. But I've made the effort to get over here recently and have really enjoyed it. There is an entire cooler shelf of Funkworks product here, for example. So what is that, maybe 6 or 8 different labels, across? Not two in the cooler and 2 or 3 on the warm shelf, 6-8 in the cooler. Last trip there were more Firestone Walker slots in the cooler than the last trip to Argonaut. Ditto the "good" Goose Island, Matilda and the Christmas beer in 4-packs in one cooler, Sofie and Pepe Nero and Pere Jacques all three in the bomber cooler (I believe last time I was at Argonaut they only had two of these three in the cooler). This is by no means intended to be a slam on Argonaut, which obviously has the resources to have more of an awful lot of things; just to point out that there is another store which allocates MORE cooler space to cool craft bombers than the two panels they have at Argonaut, despite being a smaller store.

Finally, nice attention to the locals, and also Colorado beers from elsewhere in the state. Those nice Elevation beers, Signal de Botrange, also the Apis IV, in the cooler last time I was there.

I don't think a ton of craft enthusiasts have found the place yet and stock can therefore get dated; when that happens he marks them way down. I don't mean they are past best by date, just sometimes nearing it. So if you missed something that's come and gone, it's always worth a trip over to Grapevine to see if they still have it.
