Good place, conveniently located to the highway. This is the place my relatives from Glenwood Springs come every time they venture the three hours down the mountains to Denver - it has plenty to keep their trunk stocked. It has an extensive selection of beers, particularly regional brews from the Mountain West, and a huge selection of wines and liquors as well. The staff was perfectly friendly, but I didn't find them eager to check on customers in the aisle. But then again, it's a very big store.

I finally made it to this huge store today. For the most part, I have recommended this place as a wine stop, because I've heard through sales reps that they have tons. And they do.
Stuck in a strip mall next to King Soopers this place is big. Wine makes its presence known and the beer...not so much. A long doorless, open cooler wall of beer lines the back right wall. It is half full with macro, two door-size columns of bombers (yet not much craft variety). Warm beer takes up a half of a shelving island with singles up top and sixers below. I have to say, for a place this size, its beer selection, while good, is unimpressive. Relative to the other stores, I would mark selection as below average, but all in all, it does have a better than average section. So it evens out.
And the prices aren't much different than the other big stores, and actually more than some smaller ones. Service...didn't get any, but didn't ask either.
If you live in the area, or are on I-70 passing through and need to stop quickly, this is the place. Otherwise, I'd give it a miss. I was disappointed, as big as this place is.

Located in a strip mall just off I-70. Huge store, with the majority devoted to wine. As I entered I was excited to see the entire back wall devoted to beer. Unfortunately as I started to browse I realized well over half of this was just macros (in a variety of packaging and taking up tons of shelf space. Colorado microbrew selection was good, but the selection from other US micros was limited. Import selection was better than that of the US micros. This would be a great every day beer store if you lived close, but if you are looking to seek out everything the Denver area has to offer I would recommend Total Beverage, Superior Liquor, or Liquor Mart in Boulder before Applejack.

Applejack is a good store if you're in the area, but for beer it's only average. Prices are really good, but in general you're mainly just going to find macros, local brews, but occasional rarities or seasonals from the larger micros such as O'Fallon.
Prices are as good as you'll find anywhere, but keep in mind that they only take cash or checks (checks...it still amazes me that they're still so common). They *do* however have an ATM in the store.
It also has an amazing wine selection, although that's somewhat unrelated here on BA!
I wouldn't go out of my way to head to Applejack for beer alone, but the selection is good if you have other liquor/wine needs as well.
For beer in the metro area, Davidson's and Heritage are the best options.

I've been going here since I was a kid tagging with my mom to buy my grandmother's Ancient Age. But I digress.
It's a big store in an older strip mall right off of I-70. Certainly easy to spot and easy to get to. Inside, the place hasn't changed much over the years. Cramped, but with a nice selection of wines and all things liquor. If you like Single Malt Scotch, this is your place. Beer selection; unfortunately, is just OK. Quantity over quality is the general theme. On the upside, prices are great, and going inside brings back the memories for me.

Been to this store several times. Amazing it's even listed really...because this so far from being considered a serious beer store. They have a nice selection of regional craft package beers, but don't expect much of anything in terms of Belgians, specialty imports or high end craft singles. You may find something interesting here and there, but overall, their selection sucks. I'm surprised to, because this store is perhaps the busiest liquor store in Colorado. I'm sure they could sell some good beers if they tried. Obviously the beer buyer and owners are just not interested.

I was thoroughly unimpressed by applejack.The fact that they don't take credit cards is a major let down. I carry a debit card not checks, it it is the year 2006 not 1986. The beer selection sucked big time with mostly macros taking up all the space. What few bombers they did have were at least a dollar more than every other store I like. I will not return to Applejack and would not recommend that any BA visit unless you are looking for wine. They were doing a pretty healthy business when I stopped in so I guess most people use cash.
--updated 01/2010 I bumped teh scores after a visit this month. They now take credit cards and their selection is ok.

A-Applejack is a pretty large, suburban style liquor store that is typical in Colorado in both size and feel. It is clean, well-lit, slightly cluttered, and -- at times -- full of people doing their shopping. Nothing unique here.
Q-The selection of higher-end brews is split between non-cooled shelfs and a medium-sized cooler. The store had a moderate selection of imported beers (most of which were stored on un-cooled shelves) and a pretty good selection of Colorado brews (most of which were stored in the cooler). They are a little short on non-Colorado craft.
Ser-The service is unobtrusive and mostly knowledgeable. Even when crowded, there are a fair number of employees willing to assist, but if you just want to browse, they will leave you alone.
Sel-As noted above, the selection of Colorado brews is a bright spot and the import selection is good, but not great. They are a little low on non-Colorado craft beer.
V-Applejack has pretty decent prices, but nothing that blows the competition away.
PS-While the beer selection at Applejack is so-so, the wine selection and prices are quite good...some of the best in the state.

Remember cash/local check only! Applejacks has a very good selection that seems to rotate frequently. They have a really strong German beer selection and the Belguim beer selection seems to vary in terms of selection from time to time. They arevery good about having a good selection of local beers. Their prices are very good which I attribute to working on a cash/check basis(they may take debit). The store is in a great location in the region and fairly easy to get to. The service is good- anytime I have asked the employees seem to know a good deal about what they sell. Some of the beers represented are Colorado microbrews that you can not find at all liquor stores. Overall I would rank this store as one of the better stores to visit if you are in Denver, CO.

Could someone please inform the owner of this place that the year is 2006, not 1976?
Wow. They use annoying and loud intercoms to speak back and forth between the stock people and the cashiers. They don't accept credit cards. The decor looks like a bad discotheque.
Ok - so the important thing is beer - which they do have a decent amount of. Unfortunately it's mostly swill - macro packs of crap. The few decent beers they have are actually a bit more expensive than other local establishments.
The website for Applejack says: "Applejack Wine & Spirits is the largest wine, beer and spirits store in the country."
Cough, Cough... BULLS(%*... Cough.
Not in their dreams.
Don't get excited about this place.
