Frequently Asked Questions

Please click on a question to view the answer.

Do you have Pappy Van Winkle or any of the Buffalo Trace antique collection?

We get a very limited allocation of these products, usually around the holiday season. The way we decide who gets the opportunity to purchase a bottle of these extremely rare items is through a lottery. The sign up to be included in the lottery starts around mid-October to early November and is on our website. We use some of our allocation for contests/promotions as well. If you follow us on Facebook and Twitter you will be notified of these promotions.

Do you have any Russian River Brewing products?

We get periodic shipments of Russian River products from our distributor about every 4-6 weeks. These shipments with our allocation of products such as Pliny the Elder and others come in on Friday mornings. The best way to get your hands on them is to either contact our office staff on Friday mornings to see when shipments come in or to stop in on Friday mornings and ask a member of our beer department.

Can I get an order shipped to me?

We can ship to anywhere within the state of Colorado. Unfortunately however, we are not currently allowed to ship anywhere outside of our state. To have an order shipped to you please contact our office staff and they can help you place your order. At this time we only ship wine and beer.

What are your store hours?

Please see hour Hours & Directions page.

Are you open on Holidays?

We are open every day of the year except for Christmas Day.

I do not see a product on your website. Do you do special orders?

If a product is distributed in the state of Colorado and our distributors have it in stock we can get it. The best way to make a special request for any specific product is to send an email to the head of the respective department (Dan Chacon for beer, Sheila Carey for wine or Andrew Burton for liquor) with the information on the product you are looking for and they will let you know whether or not they can get it for you and then they can set up an order for you. Please send an email to info@argonautliquor.

What do you require to process my purchase as tax exempt?

We require that you present the following documentation at the time of purchase:

  • City and County of Denver Exemption letter.
  • State of Colorado Exemption Certificate or IRS 501(c)(3) designation letter
  • Payment must be made directly via the tax exempt organization via check, credit card or cash with accompanying PO from your organization.
Upon the completion of Denver’s required tax exemption determination form, the manager on duty will remove/adjust sales tax from your order as necessary. You can also call ahead to speak with our office to get this set up ahead of time.

Why does your delivery driver need to see and write down my Date of Birth and Driver License number even though I am obviously 21 years old or you have delivered to me before?

We are following Colorado Regulation 47-426, Paragraph B1. B2. and B3. Even though you may be a regular delivery customer or are over 21 years old, we do require that you provide your license each time we complete a delivery. Our drivers do not have access to your private information that we keep on file to keep our delivery logs compliant. We greatly appreciate your cooperation. If you cannot provide an ID at the time of delivery unfortunately, we cannot deliver to you.
