Stopped by this place on a recent trip to Fort Collins. It's basically a large liquor store with a very large selection of craft beer, probably the best selection of any store I visited on my trip to CO.

Upon entering, all of the beer s straight ahead with a ton of coolers on the right and an aisle of room temp. bottles and packs. The selection is very good with a great selection of CO locals from Fort Collins, Odell, Funkwerks, Equinox and New Belgium. They also had a ton of Great Divide, Breckenridge, Ska, etc. In addition to the locals they carried a very impressive selection of other regional crafts, including selections from the Bruery, Uinta, etc and a very nice selection of European beers, many of which aren't distributed to PA.

The service was pretty good. The one beer guy was friendly and helpful. Knowledgeable and willing to check t see if they had any of the Odell 750 series n the back(they didn't). The woman at the counter was completely miserable which kind of sucked but that was my only complaint.

Overall, I was impressed with this place and would shop here frequently if I lived in the area. Impressive selection as well as some nice glassware and people who know abut beer.

Wilbur's is my go-to place to buy beer in Fort Collins. They have a wide variety of local six-packs and bombers, plus a good selection of English, Belgian, and German beers. They have a limited mix-a-six section that I've picked over pretty thoroughly, but Wilbur's can provide for all of your beer needs, especially for local brews.

Vibe? Its a grocery store type of place to buy beer to go.

Always the place to stop and visit for brews to go in Fort Collins. Service has always been good. Prices seem fair, and the selection is top notch.
Check it out, you won't go home empty handed.

This is a large store about the size of a grocery store. Beers are to the right. A long wall of coolers and and equally long dry shelf. Great selection. They allow mix a six with individually priced bottles.

Great selection of bombers, good number of breweries, both local and national. We make trips to Ft Collins just for beer runs, and this is usually where we go.

Not recommended - very poor service. Their selection and size is great - but their cashiers are extremely UN-informed, rude and ridiculous to be honest.

While purchasing wine, I was asked for both my ID and my wife's ID. My wife at no point held, handled or carried the alcohol. The cashier said she would not sell to me (the person with ID and whom was paying) because my wife didn't have her ID with her. We then asked if we could JUST purchase the pint glasses we also wanted (no alcohol) - we were refused then as well.

Yes there's a college campus very close - yes people try to buy alcohol that are not of age - but if you verify the ID of the person purchasing the alcohol why does anything else matter?

To note - we're both 30+ years of age and frequent the shopping center where this store is located. We'll never go back again. Completely ridiculous...

As many have pointed out the selection is by far one of the best in town and it rotates it stock constantly. I have seen write ups on various foreign and local beers and thought I'd like to try them, damn if I don't find them at Wilbur's! Yep bring your credit card cause your going to need it. I have requested various non local beers in keg form - I'm not too crazy on the request ie. various Roque or Alaskan, and local in 6ths or 1/4s and they get them for me. I've noticed a lot of reviews stating the staff isn't that great and it's anything but, yes they don't bother you - browse to your hearts content but if you have a question and ask, they are right there with the answer, or recommendations. I'm not a wine guy - I enjoy it but don't take the time to educate myself, so I rely on recommendations and the Wilbur's staff have never led me wrong. I would give them 5.0 rating but I drop a lot of coin there and they have a rewards program- spend a grand and you get 10 bucks and a 10% off purchase coupon. A bit weak but on the flip side - I have gone in for various cases of wine or beer that was on sale a few days prior but the sale ended and they had no problem giving me the sale price so kudos on that!
