Way up in the mountains of Colorado's beautifu Estes park...smaller place packed with shelve after shelve of tasty beer options....ample local, regional, national and import options....selection was such that you easily will be able to find plenty of quality craft options, but dont expect anything overly rare or unusual...worthy spot in an out of the way kinda location

I was up in Estes for the night, and needed some beer to keep me warm. There was 6 inches of snow expected on May 12th. We got that and plenty more by the next morning.

I used to live in Estes back in the late 90's and I wish this place was here when I was living here. The selection is unrivaled by anything within 40 minutes. There was plenty of stuff that caught my eye, things that are not available in FL, things I didn't know where beers that sat on shelves; things like Russian River, Alesmith Speedway Stout, Old Viscosity, etc. If I had brought another piece of luggage, I would have loaded up , but I was full as it was.

The guys working the floor were extremely nice and eager to help. The woman working the counter was nice as well, although a bit eccentric. This is the ONLY place to go in Estes, as far as I am concerned.

Prices were a bit high but everything in Estes is expensive.

I never really know what to say about atmosphere and quality for a bottle shop. Atmosphere I suppose can measure the set up of the store, maybe parking? However, the service and selection of this store were great! I spoke with John (that's right, his name is John Rambo) for quite awhile when I was browsing the store. He was very helpful with some of the local brews I hadn't tried yet and we shared stories of some great beers we'd both had recently. For selection, it wasn't the best bottle shop I'd ever been in, but considering it was in Estes Park, it was amazing. If you are in the area, I can't recommend this shop enough.

Had to check this place out while on vacation in Estes Park. The place has a mom and pop vibe to it which I like. Even better, it's a mom and pop store with some remarkable beer picks on the shelves. For it's size there are plenty of excellent finds from all the big and little canners and bottlers in Colorado. You can find many other great selections from other states as well inside the doors of this little gem. Decent selection of 6pks and a very nice selection of larger bottles. A guy setting up a tasting table for the Dry Dock rep greeted me and invited me to stick around for the tasting which was an hour away, but I didn't have time. He pointed out several good picks from Dry Dock, Telluride, Epic, Elevation, Funkwerks, Odell, Stone, Russian River, Deschutes, Twisted Pine, and others. I picked out some Dry Dock, Elevation, and Funkwerks. When he rang me up, I said I was going to Ft. Collins and he recommended I stop by Equinox because they make great brew, but don't bottle yet. I took his advice and it was worth the stop. Stop here if you're ever in Estes. It's a winner.

Of course they have a great selection of Colorado craft brews but what I didn't expect was some other world-class finds. The biggest names on that list are Russian River and Dogfish Head. Had a few quality selections from those breweries. They also had some other great craft beers from Boulevard, Maui, Deschuttes, etc. The staff was more than friendly and were willing to help in any way they could. I would recommend this place to anyone in the Estes Park or RMNP area that is looking for some quality beer.
