Pretty neat place downtown La Crosse. Inside bar feel is decent, but a little beat up. Sandwiches/appetizers served next door in a little deli. Nice to bring over to the bar. Tap selection is usually pretty solid with an additional great bottle list. Some bartenders are very knowledgeable, others not. Always friendly.

Tremendous beer bar! "Brew pub" in their name is a bit misleading - they donít brew their own, but they sure have a heck of a selection of brews! My server was great - he let me sample anything I wanted from their taps. The beer menu can be viewed by style or alphabetically by name (they print 2 different lists), and they also show the beerís origin, style, RateBeer rating, and the rating from Beer Advocate. Very helpful! Bar is cool - hardwood floors, and a huge collection of tap handles, coasters, and empty bottles (in the windows). Also had the Cubano sandwich - tasty. Great spot.

Stopped by here on a Saturday evening, and was fairly impressed. One bartender was not exactly polite, but they were quick to serve you, and the other bartender was much more amicable. The tap selection was pretty good, but certainly was not that amazing. Given the area though, it is much better than I would have expected. Bottled beer selection seemed fairly extensive, and prices ranged from reasonable to fairly expensive. Overall, it is certainly worth a stop, and if I lived in the area I would be a regular.

For being tucked away in the middle of downtown La Crosse this is a diamond in the rough. Offering a very diverse selection of beers from around the region (and world) if you cannot find something here you should consider hanging it up.

The drafts themselves may not be too spectacular. After being spoiled by places like La Cav du Vin, the Beer Engine, and the Great Danes this cannot compete on that level. However if you bear in mind where it is located this has a distinct edge over anything else within probably an hourís drive.

Be sure to ask if there is anything that might not be listed on the menu. When I was there a couple of things were lurking in the cooler that was either not listed (or Iíd just overlooked them). They did let us open a bottle of Two Women Lager and even provided two glasses at no charge. Overall I think Iíd come back here if I were in La Crosse again.

This is really a pretty excellent bar. The entire front window is full of beer bottles, some of which are pretty old and awesome; itís like a sun bleached beer bottle museum. The place has a crappy old corner bar feeling (which I love) with lots of good beer. They keep plenty of limited releases from WI breweries particularly Tyranena and New Glarus. The copper kettle cooler is one of the coolest Iíve ever seen, I just wish I could actually look at the bottle selection instead of having to thumb through the enormous book. Although all the prices are listed in the book so there are no surprises. Speaking of prices theyíre not too shabby all around for some of the high quality beers they have here. If you are in the mood for crappy beer theyíve got great prices on Huber Bock and LaCrosse Lager as well (I think they were $2 and $1.25 respectively when I was last in there)

I stop here every year during Oktoberfest; though some of the bottle list is unavailable then, and most taps are Oktoberfest beers during the fest. Otherwise, definitely the best beer selection in La Crosse. On this last visit, I shared a bottle of Southern Tier Pumking with a friend who hadnít tried it before, and unfortunately the beer was way too warm. I mentioned it to the server, and she was very nice about it and even bought our next round. I plan to make a visit sometime when itís not Oktoberfest, as the server said the tap selection is normally much more interesting.

I stopped here with my girlfriend when visiting LaCrosse back in 2008. Seemed more like a college hangout with a decent selection of beer. I was expecting more but really not that impressed. Would not go out of way to stop here again.

This is beer heaven! Hundreds of bottles and a score or so of tappers. Iíve been to places with more taps, but never with more bottles. Itís definitly about the beer at the Bodega. I found this place because of business and I get there about once a year. Iíve gotten to know Jeff the owner and he loves to talk about beer. Itís over 300 miles and they remember my name! This is where I had my first Belgian. Ask him for a recommendation. You canít go wrong. The reason for the high ambience rating is a combination of the wonderful wall of glass located on a busy downtown La Crosse corner. What a great place to relax on a sunny afternoon. Ah, yes.... heaven indeed.

heemer77  (226) Urbandale, Iowa | June 17, 2008
Nice selection of bottles and a few interesting things on tap. I really liked their beer bottle cooler. Itís a converted brew kettle that is used like a lazy susan. The crowd is definitely college town styled. Friendly folks. While the seleciton was good, I was not too impressed as most things seemed to be relatively readily available.
