Simple bar atmosphere, bunch of regulars, and a 400+ bottle cellar. Not the place to go for that rare Cantillon, but their list is almost guaranteed to have something you would like to try. Prices are pretty good for the midwestern "locals," a bit steep on many of the other bottles. 25% discount for carry out.

A favorite stop in La Crosse. Decent number of handles, and an extensive bottle list. Food is good, with daily specials. Service can be spotty.

Originally reviewed: 12/30/09. Stopped by here with some friends when I was in town for the holidays. Grabbed a table and sampled some of the brews. Freaking stellar selection! They had 14 taps, all of which were quality brews; they also had several hundred bottles available. One cool thing at this place was this wheel on the wall that you could spin to select a certain number that corresponded to a certain beer. Kind of a fun way to try the many beers available as you never know what you are going to get. I got two of their newer offerings, the NG Unplugged Cran-bic and Lake Louieís IPA, both great beers. If I was around here more often, I would hit this place up all the time. I wish my town had a place like this. Highly recommend you stop by.

Walk into a bar, pay $3.25 to spin a wheel, receive a glass of delicious craft beer. Thatís how this place operates. Best bar in LAX by a long shot.

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.

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 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.
