A - This is your typical local, big liquor store. They had a pretty large selection of beers, but also large selections of wine and other spirits.

S - Service was below average, with no one offering help, but nobody was openly rude.

S - Selection was nice, but I'm from Texas so we don't get nearly as much CA or Belgian beers in our state. So what may be shelf turds to people in Denver are new and exciting to me. There wasn't anything rare just hanging out on the shelves, but a nice overall selection.

V - Prices all seemed pretty reasonable.

Overall a good bottle shop in Denver, but nothing anybody from out of state needs to go out of their way to check out. If you happen to be near, by all means check it 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.
