Foss Company History

The Foss Drug Company sold liquor in Colorado for more than 100 years, opening in downtown Golden as a general store. The original drug store was able to continue selling spirits through Prohibition because laws at the time allowed pharmacists to write prescriptions for alcohol. The combination pharmacy and liquor store closed in 2007, but the Foss family still owns the property, and their newest endeavor in the space is continuing a long tradition of maintaining one of the oldest retail liquor licenses in the state.
