Visited 4/29/09 right before going back to the airport to see if they had anything else worth bringing back with us, this place was pretty close to the state capitol, this place reminded me of a BevMo back home just with heightened security, literally guards all over the place, next to an older version of itself which is the other one shown in the picture, place seems very new and clean, big long aisles, beer is on the right side of the store in various fridges, lots of Colorado stuff available like Oskar Blues, New Belgium, Ska, Left Hand, Boulder, etc., beer was certainly not the focus here, did grab some Barrel Licked Bock from Fort Collins before getting on my way, prices were average, lots of people working there so I sure any questions you might have will be answered by somebody, not as good as some other selections in town but decent, from a beer geek standpoint, they need to concentrate more on specialty bombers rather than the run of the mill six packs, might go back in the future, still worth checking out

I actually haven't been to the Argonaut in several years, but it's a great beer store and it left a great impression on me. I was in Denver for GABF a few years back and a day or so after the festival I hit the Argonaut to stock up for the flight back to TX (where, sadly, we don't have access to a lot of the good stuff sold here). Rows and rows of great beers (and a nice selection of spirits as well), with a back cooler that had any style you wanted, if not every brewery. I ended up getting several singles of local stuff that were, at the time, not available in TX. The coup of the trip, of course, was a bottle of Pliny the Elder from Russian River. Hadn't had one before and sadly haven't had one since. But thanks to the Argonaut I had it at least once. That's the kind of stuff you remember about beer stores. The rare finds and the wonderful selections. And that's why I give the Argonaut such high marks. Cheers.

Visited what appeared to be a relatively new store. The overall selection was good and they did have some unique/rare one-off beers, but not many. The staff was helpful in finding some unique beers. Would visit again in the future.

Customer service here was awesome. Told them we were from out of state and they brought me into the back to show me the limited/special release items in the back and also made solid suggestions for great local beers. Terrific store.
