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 friendly...like 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.
