They have a great selection of craft brews. I would say the cooler section dedicated to craft is probably about 300’ long. They are mostly 6 and 4 pack offerings, but do have a few bombers. Pricing is about as good or better than I have seen in the area. If you passing by on I94, pop off at highway 50 head 1 block east you can’t miss it. It is worth the stop. If I lived within 20 min. it would be my everyday bottle shop.
Limited release stuff is limited but you can easily walk away happily with a beer haul from here. All of the sot after WI brews are available. Oskar Blues as well.
Woodman’s has an excellent selection of all kind of beers. They have one wall with coolers dedicated to micro and craft beers, broken down by Wisconsin beers, mid-west and national. Another wall of coolers is dedicated to 12pks and cases of macro beers. Then there’s a third wall of coolers dedicated to national macros, and international beers. They also let you build your own six-pack. Their prices are very reasonable, and if you buy four six packs from the same brewery the usually knock a dollar off each six-pack.

December 2010: They have expanded the beer and liquor selection so that it now resembles the other Woodman stores. The beer selection now covers all the outer walls so this is a big upgrade.
Good lineup of WI micro’s; Lakefront, New Glarus, Tyranena, Greys, Capital, etc. Decent variety otherwise but the price is usually $1-2 cheaper than otherplaces. Never been to other Woodmans but for a grocery store this place is nice.
They have Bell’s stuff: Hopslam, 3rd Coast, Expedition for ~$13/6 plus other regulars.
On a side note there is a authentic Austrian restaurant, "Little Europe" that has about 10-12 German/Czech beers on tap plus some of the best sausage around that is about 1/4 mile up the circle from Woodmans (past the Gander Mt.)
Stopped in when we visited Chicago a couple years back. Had to get me some NG beers. I actually called a few week ahead and had them order in some stuff for me. I arrived and there was a few cases with my name on it. Great place. Nice selection of craft.
Fantastic grocery store that is about 3 football fields long, and has a great beer selection considering its location. I’ve been coming here for years, and it’s my go to place to stock up on New Glarus beers along with other breweries I can’t get in the Chicagoland area (AleSmith, Weyerbacher, Alaskan). Value is incredible here, all NG six packs are $7, and the expensive imports are relatively reasonable. Debit cards/cash only is something I definitely respect to, helps keeps those prices low. Great place.
This is it in extreme SE Wisconsin.
It’s an icon for food shopping - and it’s a great place for booze but especially WI beer.
Nothing else needs be said but New Glarus.
I now live far away, and no one has heard of this place that I’ve know of for almost 20 yrs.
Now there’s O’so, Central Waters, my friends at Lakefront (which is available up and Down the Eastern Seaboard), Capital (the same as LF), Ale Asylum, Tyrannea...
It’s Woodman’s, whether it’s Madison, Kenosha, and now Aurora.

Big dedicated parking lot. This place is primarily a grocery, but has a pretty good beer selection. The six-pack selection is good and there is a small section of singles. Foreign selection is fairly limited. However they did have New Glarus, so I cannot complain. They don’t accept credit cards, but debit does work. Prices are very reasonable here. This was convenient for me because I went to the outlets and picked some beer.

My main man and I rolled up from the north side one fine Saturday. That close to Wisconsin, we had to make the NG pilgrimage. This place was huge, though we only visited the two aisles of importance. Cases and cases of New Glarus stacked everywhere. Sweet Christmas! For those interested, there was plenty of other great looking craft (very much domestic), including other nice Wisconsin breweries like Central Waters, Tyranena, and Ale Asylum. But we filled the vehicle with New Glarus.
