Redneck goin to the big city, need beer suggestions!
I'm traveling to Ft Collins, CO on Sunday and plan to hit a huge liquor store since I have very little selection here in bumf**k Wyoming (love the state, hate the lack of selection)

What should I seek out to purchase? I know about Stone, DFH, Russian River, and I plan to grab some Belgian imports. What else do I need to look for? This place has pretty much every beer you could possibly get in Colorado.

EDIT: I plan on spending copious quantities of cash, so price is not an issue on this particular trip.

Shorts Brewing Company appears to be a huge hit at GABF, dunno if that is available there. I love most of Southern Tier's stuff. Can't go wrong with Goose Island. Bear Republic is pretty good. Bells Brewery. Just tossing out some ideas, there are too many to list!

WHich liquor store in Ft collins?

Total Beverage...unless someone knows an even bigger/better place!

I just called that place, they said they have close to 1000 beers, so i think you're heading in the right direction ;)

There's a old list here.

If I were to recommend I'd say almost anything that says Stone, Lagunitas, Anderson valley, Russian River, Deschutes, Ninkazi, Sierra nevada, Mikeller, HUB, and Laurelwood

just get stuff you've never had, this sounds like a total win! have fun.

Keep the list coming! I do have access to the big ones like Sierra Nevada, Deschutes, New Belgium, Odells, but nothing too unusual or far away. I haven't heard of some of those listed, so that's a good thing!

Of those names like mikeller and lagunitas they have many labels so you'll have a wide selection

Some beers that I have liked a lot recently that probably travel well:
Speakeasy Payback Porter
Redhook Treblehook Barleywine
Dogfish Head Sah'tea (polarizingly banana-y...)
Sierra Nevada 30th Anniversary Charlie Fred & Ken's Bock
Lost Abbey Carnevale Saison
Goose Island Bourbon County Stout

I would stick to local stuff for pale ales, hefeweizens, and pilsners.
