Went to the Bodega which is in downtown Lacrosse, and enjoyed my time there immensely. Pretty laid back. Mixed age groups, not as many college kids as I thought there would be. I liked it alot a must see when in LaCrosse

I lived in LaCrosse for 14 years. I take Bodega as the standard any other establishment would be wise to emulate or if ambitious and wealthy, improve upon. Due to local ordinance, on duty bartenders are forbidden to sample so they come by their knowledge through personal love of beer or from the owners mandatory staff only tastings. The building length windows make the place open and bright with people watching a popular past time. With little effort you can sojourn the planet from a bar stool at The Bodega.

Visited with DavidP in April of 2005 for the Between the Bluffs beer/cheese fest. Nice selection of taps and bottles with a sweet lazy susan turn-style beer fridge. Small bathrooms. Definitely worth a stop in if youíre ever "lost in La Crosse"...

Great beer bar run by a RB guy, Dr. Pimento. Note that the name "brewpub" is a bit of a misnomer, as they do not brew anything on premise. The location itself is an asset, and the ambiance is good, although I could do without the trite banners and flags and other such items. Great tap selection with New Glarus well represented, and an emphasis on Belgians from what I can see. The bottle selection is even more impressive, with an emphasis on the hard to find beers. Prices are very reasonable. A must visit if youíre in the area.

Probably my favorite beer bar in the US. Amazing selection, knowledgable staff, and fun, laid-back atmosphere. If you find yourself in La Crosse, WI, it is a MUST VISIT!

An excellent bar with a spectacular selection. A fun selection of beer bottles decorate the front. The only short-coming Iíve had with this bar is that it can get crowded and smoky on the weekends.

I have been going to this place for about 10 years, not continuously, but probably a handful of times over that period. And, it appears to me that the quality of their selection has improved markedly in the past year, although I see from balke_13ís rating that they had beers from many of the brewers I saw on this trip over a year ago. So, perhaps either I didnít read over the beer list all that closely last year or wasnít as familiar with the reputations of the brewers. balke_13 didnít mention Three Floyds, and they now also have their Alpha King. The quality of their tap selection isnít so hot, however. It is a different selection than you will see other places, but just didnít have the home run hitters like they do in their bottle selection. The most interesting one I found was Great Lakes Burning River, and it wasnít that great. I found their prices to be quite reasonable for some beers, and more what I would have expected on others. A bottle of Alpha King was only $3 while DFH 60, 90, & 120 were something like $5, $8, & $16, respectively. Other brewers represented include: De Dolle, New Glarus, Bells, Rogue, Avery, Quilmes, JW Lees, St. Bernardus and much more. Highly recommended.

Stumbled upon this bar, sure glad that I did. Good tap selection and the bottle selection was outstanding. Their lazy susan beer fridge is cool, too. Nice airy atmosphere inside, but they could probably lose the video poker games at each table.

the bodega is a relatively unknown gem in western wisconsin, great relaxed atmosphere with bar seating and comfortable lounge chairs. tons of old beer bottles and new line the street side windows as well as a ton of tap handles. the beer selection is fantastic (about a 15 page book). just about any regional micro (new glarus, summit, goose island, capital, sprecher, lakefront) as well as tons from both the east and west coast: avery, rogue, bells, dfh, allagash, bear republic, du claw, and more. plus, a great selection of imports: fullers, lindemans, chimay, rochefort, westvleteren, and so many more. on tuesdays or thursdays they also have a bike wheel you spin for $2 and get the beer that you land on...$2-$8 beers on the wheel. great place to check out if you find yourself in western wisconsin. highly recommended.
