They have Capital Wild Rice. Also available are CW, Bells, Fantome, and Viking items. I also managed to find FFF Brian Boru there.

I was here on 12/22/04. While walking through Downtown Madison on a fridged december day. This place has lots of good stuff-Bells singles inclidng some of the more rare ones (sparkling, doppelbock). They have all the central waters stuff in singles (minus the bourbon stout) and also all the Viking stuff in bombers (2.99 each!!) killer store. Also picked up a bottle of great lakes nosferatu!

Lots of singles in the coolers. The staff didn’t seem to know much about their beers. I got some Viking beers that can be hard to find. Otherwise, a nice place.

Outstanding singles selection (lots of Central Waters and Viking)! The prices were fair and overall the best of the three I visited today.

A favorite stop of mine as it is only three block from my place. Some of the staff know their stuff, some don’t -- just ask for Skidz or Adam Bents. My roommate works the registers and his brother is the asst. manager, and both have tried nearly every beer in the store and can give you advice if it’s needed (although if you’re an RBer, you probably just need help finding something, not advice). They have a nice selection of singles and 6ers of some unusual stuff. They also regularly stock bombers of Lake Louie and Viking and have many hard-to-find Midwest micros. Some nice Belgians too -- Westmalle, Beersel, Fantome, Chapeau, Ch’ti, others. A little pricey but not bad.

The fun thing about beer stores in Madison is that there isn’t a one-stop shop. For example, Riley’s has beers that I couldn’t find at Woodman’s or Steve’s. Farily well stored. Staff is basically college folks.

Good beer selection... nice singles selection (as commented before). Highly recommended as a day trip for Central Waters singles, other singles, and then you can hit Great Dane afterwards :)

Finally hit this place the other day and was pleasantly surprised. A nice selection of singles, and the prices are reasonable for downtown. Only place that I’ve seen Central Waters singles, and was suprised to see DFH singles as well. Oh, and they have a small selection of sake too.

Great selection of WI micros, a lesser selection of imports and domestic micros. I think their biggest plus is their selection of singles - basically all WI micros they have are available in singles.

Good place. Medium, well-chosen selection. Got DFH Festina Lente here, Central Waters Imperial, etc. Only place I saw the Lakefront sampler when I was in town last, but it was pricey and alas looked past date. Couldn't get anyone who knew anything about it either. Still, worth a stop; all of Madison's little shops seem to carry different things. More fun that way, if more time-consuming.
