Owner | Store Manager
I was born and raised in Kalispell, Mt but have been in the Denver area for 20+ years. I have 2 fantastic children that I spend most of my time with. While I had little experience in the liquor industry before coming to Arrow, I have learned a lot about wine and spirits in the last 3 years. Time spent with friends and red wine is one of my favorite past times.
Owner | Liquor Manager
For me the glass is always half full, be it with optimism or wine or beer or even an old fashioned (my go to cocktail). More-the-merrier is as good as my alone time with a good book. Love my family-My husband, 2 daughters and my 10 & 1/2 year old Alaskan malamute, Guru (the wisest of the bunch). Adding Arrow to the mix has been a spiritual journey. As in now I know more about spirits than ever before. Come see us and you might start a path to a new spirit yourself.
Wine Manager | Certified Sommelier
I am a Colorado native and have been a Certified Sommelier for 23 of my 25 years in the wine and spirits industry. In addition, I was privileged to be part of the Master of Wine Education Programme for 4 years. Obviously, a principle part of my job is to find the best wines in the market at the best price. And the best part of this is that prospecting for the best wines of the world, not necessarily the most expensive, is an endlessly fascinating process. Each of the roughly 3000 wines we carry has it’s own story. My favorites are the smaller wineries that have been family-owned for generations. The people, the vines and the wines evolve together over time. Every week I learn something new. If you love wines as I do, come in and see us. There is a lot to talk about.
Yo. Kurtis is the name. At Arrow, I am an avid beer enthusiast and Cicerone in training. If you have questions about beer or whiskey, I’m your guy. I believe there are so many amazing beers in Colorado to have a favorite but I can always give you a spot-on recommendation. When I’m not at the store, I brew my own beer, mead and cider. My non-alcohol related hobbies include hiking, tabletop RPG’s and listening to heavy metal. Se habla Español.
I enjoy hiking and working on cars. I’m currently in school for journalism and philosophy. My favorite brewer would have to be Odell but I like trying all types of Colorado beers.
I’m Evan Drake. When I’m not at work I spend most of my time with my dog, Nike. We love the mountains. I always love having a good time, good beer with good friends. Also when all else fails, just be yourself….unless you can be Batman. Then always be Batman.
