Argonaut was a little hard to find for an outsider in a new territory, but I think the city was a little hard to handle with streets going everywhere and having to go through the busiest part of downtown. Once I found Argonaut I was quite happy because it had a bunch of the beers I was looking for. It carried quite a few local craft beers in 6-pack, but it did have some of the bigger brews in the cooler over near the wine section.

I was focused on Avery and picking up a couple Great Divide picks. I was happy to find all of them and then some. The only thing I was not happy about was the lack of single bottle selection for a lot of the other brewers in CO and around the area. You could buy all the 6-packs you wanted, but couldn't mix-and-match. For someone who was having to fly out, this presented itself as a problem.

Argonaut is relatively close to Coors Field and Flying Dog. It is listed as one of the better locations on this site...I just wish I had more time to check out some of the other places. Eh, even though I didn't, I still went home with some pretty good loot.

Denver landmark. Nice store right off Colfax in an exciting area that is slowly being gentrified by yuppies. Why are the entrance doors so tiny?? Beer selection is above average, with plenty of hard-to-find beers and one-offs available. Prices, too me, seem a tad higher, but that's probably due to loaction. Staff is kind of hit-and-miss; most are nice and helpful, some would ignore you if you had a woodpecker on your head. Overall, it's an above-average store with a good selection of beer.

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.
