Kitschy little store in downtown Colorado Springs. Pretty good selection, well organized, decent prices. Gregor, the owner/manager hails from Germany, and is doing a great job with this store.

A very nice small alcoholic beverage store that has excellent selection for the beers (especially less common German beers). The owner, Greg, is from Germany. He's usually there when I stop by and he and his staff are always helpful. The craft beer selection has many standbys for the area but also has new items on a regular basis. The pricing is very competitive plus they'll do their bet to special order items for you.

Small store, big on selections, and excelling at customer service.

Visited while on vacation in April 2013 based on reviews from B.A. Went in looking to add a few local craft beer cans to my collection and was not disappointed. While the selection and prices were very good, this may have been the best and friendliest service I've ever gotten at a beer store. The owner greeted us at the door and let us paruse without being overbearing. I found a few locals to take home - Upslope, Wynkoop, and Ska as well as 2 Utah beers (Baba and Hop Notch from Uinta), but I asked for one I didn't see from Upslope. Rather than getting the "we don't have it", the manager (co-owner?) went and looked it up on-line, even letting me work the computer. We found out that the beer was only sold thru several local restaurants.

My wife mentioned that she only drinks wine, and Bill came out to show us a couple local wines which we picked up. They even appeased the kids with a local soda from Durango Soda Co.

I'll be back next time in Colorado - just wish it wasn't 1400 miles away.

Great staff, everyone was very helpful and friendly. The employees are very knowledgable. The store was easy to find and in a great location, I didn't have to pay for parking!!! They even help customers carry large purchases to their car. I found out they hold wine tastings about every month, where they don't sinch on the product.

I stopped by the store on a recommendation from a friend and was immediately impressed by the vast number of different wines lining every shelf. They had 4 rooms packed wall to wall with every type of booze known to mankind, that's not eve counting the backroom which has about a thousand different varieties of Chianti. I was there during peak hours and still got assistance within about 30 seconds of walking in. The staff were especially knowledgeable and know exactly what I was asking for. If you are looking for a store that has anything and everything while still feeling like a mom and pop shop I would defiantly recommend.

What I like best about this shop is the massive selection. I was able to peruse labels I'd never seen before, and learn about a huge number of local brews that I want to try now. THEN, I was surprised when I was given a discount because I paid in cash. Nice! All-around great experience. I will definitely come back.

Stopped in to check out the place. A friend told me they had Trinity brews at pretty good prices. I was so impressed when I went. They have a big selection of all kinds of brews and their prices were pretty cheap. I picked up a bottle of Stanahan's for $6 less than the outlet. I fell in love with this place A+.

read about downtown fine spirits and wines in the paper and went to check it out as i live close to there. I was blown away.. the staff was friendly and helpful.. the selection was great (and they will add more) the decor was beautiful and the prices are competive to big box shops and in some cases cheaper..
they have a large selection of colorado brews in bombers and six packs and their wine and liquor section is just awesome. Combine this with craftbeers from all over the US and the world and you have a winner..
Check this place out and you will see for yourselves.. about time that we got a place to go to in the downtown area..

This place is full of class. This place is more than a store, it is an experience. Great spot to check out some new brews plus the oldie but goodies. I found the prices pretty reasonable. Some way under other spots but a couple were a little higher by a few cents. Won't be an issue if you are looking for good craft brews though. I loved that I could just go hang out and talk brews. Big bonus is that they also have a huge wine selection for my friend to browse.

Loved it and they offer to order anything you want. They already had my Trinity in. SCORE

stumbled across this new store in downtown colorado springs. I was suprised with the decor, atmoshere and the way they displayed their inventory. They have a monster selection of local craftbeers at great prices. The staff is great and friendly and they offered to order a brand i inquired which was not on the shelves.

They also have a very large wine and spirits section and best of all they are 100% solar powered which i love.

Great shop and i wish them all the sucess
