stumbled across Wilbur's while stocking up on groceries at the adjacent Whole Foods before heading into the Wyoming desert
it's got the layout of your typical chain style liquor/wine/beer store, clean, linoleum floors, fluorescent lighting, quite a big place, arranged into rows with most of the beer in wall coolers along the right side of the store, though there was some big bottle format and european stuff in warm storage nearby
selection was quality, most of the Colorado locals were represented, save for some of the more obscure items, lots of Odell and and New Belgium of course, loads of other stuff that sees nationwide distribution, was happy to see the Boulevard big beers in small, single bottles, the singles selection was okay, fairly wide but lacking the more desirable stuff
over two visits I was never approached, despite staff being present, cashiers were nice at least
there was also a small but nice selection of glassware available

This place was fairly well organized and laid out in a consumer friendly-manner
The quality of all beers tried were good to great
The one staff member I had contact with was friendly & wildly enthusiastic about craft beer
Selection was even better than Liqourmax. I wish I had better prepared myself I left a few Russian River & lost abbey brews behind, because I THOUGHT I had already tried them, ugh. Could spent hundreds in here, but was flying out the next day. There was a big selection of hometown brews to try. Loved the wide range of beers on offer, this compared favourably to any beer store I've been in Colorado
Prices seemed reasonable

Made my big shopping trip at Liquormax but stopped here to look for a few things. They didn't have exactly what I was looking for but I was very impressed with what I found.
Much larger dry storage section than Liquormax which was a plus. Huge selection of Mikkleller, Fantome and Boulevard that I didn't see other places plus the same CO brews and a few different bombers than other places, again very good selection and quality.
Service was lacking. Didn't see anyone walking around helping people out and I looked because I wanted to ask about specific beers and at checkout the girl didn't even bag my stuff for me, in addition to taking forever to count my change. Prices were good but I probably should have borrowed a Wilbur's card to help out.
Overall, I was pretty happy but I can't get over the service, or lack there of.

Wilbur's is likely the biggest liquor store in town and it's also one of the busiest. They have a great spirits and wines selection as well so expect alot of traffic when you go. Besides the clutter of patrons their beer selection is superb and bottle prices are among the cheapest in town. You usually can find what you are looking for particularly on imports. My two gripes are that sometimes they fail to restock on some of the more popular sixers and cases so they are unreachable in the cooler section and that it's difficult to find rare domestics due to the amount of beer savyy patrons. Be sure to check out their glassware too, the prices are so much lower than you can find at the breweries.

Q. I did not see any out of date product, but some items did have a solid layer of dust on them. I didn't notice anything being stored in direct sunlight or anything else along those lines.
S. We were there early in the day, and spent almost an hour there. We were asked right away if we needed any help, and then left alone to shop on our own.
S. While the selection didn't seem as large as I thought it would be, they did have a few items I didn't see at other stores in Colorado. The beer they had was well displayed in the cooler as well as on a warm shelf.
I did notice that the prices on several beers were slightly higher than at the other stores around.

This place is heaven. A beer wall that goes on and on, the folks working there can help you find something, give recommendations or just talk beer for a while. I have been able to find 99.9% of the beers I'm looking for here; World Wide Stout, Old Crustacean, Thomas Hardy's, massive imported selection...these guys got EVERYTHING! If you're in/going to Fort Collins, check Wilbur's out and buy a few bottles you can't find any where else!
*If you can't it it at Wilbur's, head down south fifteen minutes in Loveland and check out Liquor Warehouse on 34. Together, there is nary a beer you won't be able to buy! Prost!

Stopped in on my tour of Colorado. Impressive selection of Colorado and West Coast beers for those from out of town. I had to scale myself back (2 bottles of Odell WoodCut #2, were not cut though). In addition to CO breweries rare releases, they had a nice Lost Abbey, Pizza Port, Deschutes, and Russian River selection, a big plus for us Southeasterners. It is a big Wal Martish liquor store, so expect to seek out help, but nice enough when asked. I commend them for the bottle limits on purchases, as it allows others to pick up bottles when in town. Great stop, and very convenient in town.

A friendly atmosphere to shop through the biggest beer selection in town. The staff was friendly but no one offers to help with your selection and I doubt they would be able to help with a good beer selection if they did offer to help. The selection was really good though with a huge choice of beers that cannot be found in any other liquor store in town. I also like that they give a 10% military discount and put on my member card so I don't have to show my mil I'd everytime. I have tried several other stores in town but none have provided what they have.

This is my usual liquor store. I'm very familiar with everything in this store I've been there so much. Very amazing selection of micros- both in bottles, and in sixers. Everything I've wanted that does in fact get distributed here can be found at this one store. The belgian and foreign selection in general is probably more limited compared to Liquor Max, however. This store also has the most reasonable prices in the area- typically a few dollars cheaper per pack/bottle than other area stores. I've run into a few employees who really knew their beer, and a few that were working hard to learn it. I imagine the service would be great for someone less knowledgable than myself. My only gripe is that they seem to run out of the rarer beers quicker than other stores- maybe because of the volume of customers, or maybe because they don't order enough of them at a time.

This is my favorite place to explore for new and exciting beers. They have an excellent selection and a staff that really knows their stuff. I once had a gentleman walk me through the Belgians and explain which ones he recommended and why. He had tried most of them as the employees are encouraged to do.
The place is very clean and well organized. It's never too busy and I've never found anything that's expired or past-prime. It really is a destination liqour store. We just happen to be lucky enough to have it nearby.
