Ridgeway Liquor is by no means an exceptional liquor store, but it is a good one, and since itís located in the Fox River Valley, which isnít the beer-iest place in Wisconsin, it definitely deserves to be on this site. They do get extra points for a few reasons. First, theyíre the only liquor store East (and, I think, South) of Stevens Point, that carries Oíso beers. Second, the owner was extremely gracious when I visited. She came out from behind the counter and chatted about beer with me for a while and then mentioned that she had six Oíso beers broken out as singles in the cooler (I had only noticed 4 right-off-the-bat... The mix-a-six had an odd organizational structure). The rest of the singles selection was just OK, but the walk-in beer cave was pretty decent, with Bellís, Central Waters, New Glarus Unpluggeds, and a couple of other Midwest standouts. Overall, although it didnít have the wide selection that Flanaganís in Appleton has, my experience at Ridgeway Liquor was very good. I might be mistaken, but I believe this is a new establishment, so Iíll definitely check back in next time Iím in the area.
