I first reviewed this in October 2005; the store improved mightily over the 8 years before I moved back to the area, and it’s improved again in the past 3. While I prefer to shop at Badger Spirits, because I like to support the little guy and the place has some character and actual service, I can’t deny that for selection and price the Woodmans chain are the stores to beat in the stateline area. This Beloit location is a bit smaller and stocks significantly less than the Janesville or Rockford stores, but it’s still pretty solid. Not too much in the way of imports here - the other two area stores or Everett’s in South Beloit are going to have more stuff like Mikkeller or Rochefort - but if you want New Glarus, Ale Asylum and other Wisconsin micros at the best prices - and definitely if you want cheap macro 30-packs - this is unquestionably the place to go. Service is typically nonexistent (though always friendly at check-out) but there are a few people who know something and you might get lucky.

Been to this Woodmans twice in the 2007-2008 timeframe. Its harder to get to than the Janesville Location from Rockford and also doesnt have the selection that the Janesville store has. Sort of off the beaten path in the northwest side of the city. Of course great prices as usual here. Good but not worth going out of the way for.

Better than your typical woodmans. Not as big of a selection as the Rockford one, but a bunch of stuff I can’t get at mine. Prices comprable to other stores. Not too bad.

Meh. Like the other locations the liquor department is separate. Like the other locations employees aren’t too helpful and there are acres of parking. No single beers available. They do have a fairly good selection of local Wisconsin beers and New Glarus sixers are $6.99.

I wanted New Glarus so I drove the 100 miles to Beloit. I picked up 8 of their brews plus some Tyranena and Stone. The guy working the counter was personable, the selection wasn’t huge, but they have New Glarus and it is the closest place for me to get it. Beer good, travel worth it.

This is the first Woodman’s I’ve ever been to and I am very impressed. Too bad it’s in the middle of nowhere. Best grocery store ever. Selection was great for domestic micros but crappy for imports. AMAZING prices. $6.59 for three floyds, all New Glarus 6packs were $5.99. They had the two good fruit New Glarus for $7 a wine bottle, they even had the unplugged smoked rye bock. A lot of wisconsin beers. So impressed i stopped at the Woodmans in Carpentersvilled on the way home. This one is better though. Different selection. They don’t take credit cards. I think there was only one employee in there and she was at the register, very friendly.

This is the closest place to western Illinois where you can get New Glarus. That is why I added it. It really is just another woodmans and nothing special about it, except it has new glarus. Call ahead of time to see if they have what you want, they are pretty good about going and looking. If they dont have it the next place on I-90 is Janesville.
