I love the Bodega Brew Pub! This place has a wide selection of beers! The food is also yummy. The staff at Bodega is also super helpful answering questions about the selection of beers! I highly recommend Bodega!

Great selection, right in the heart of downtown La Crosse. Friendly staff. Pricey, though.

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 hour’s 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 I’d 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 I’d 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; it’s 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 I’ve 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 they’re not too shabby all around for some of the high quality beers they have here. If you are in the mood for crappy beer they’ve 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 hadn’t 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 it’s 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. I’ve been to places with more taps, but never with more bottles. It’s definitly about the beer at the Bodega. I found this place because of business and I get there about once a year. I’ve gotten to know Jeff the owner and he loves to talk about beer. It’s over 300 miles and they remember my name! This is where I had my first Belgian. Ask him for a recommendation. You can’t 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  (220) Urbandale, Iowa | June 17, 2008
Nice selection of bottles and a few interesting things on tap. I really liked their beer bottle cooler. It’s 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.

This place is a gem. Service is amazing, and extremely knowledgeable. The beer selection is outstanding. over 400 beers to choose from. And they are now smoke-free. Soon they will be serving food. I love this bar.
