Not being from around here and not knowing Woodman’s I was shocked by how big this place was. Stopped by to get a little breakfast and didn’t end up buying beer, but I did peruse the selection. The liquor is in a separate part of the store. It’s basically a big warehouse-style liquor store. Separate checkouts. Nothing rare here, but you’ll find pretty much everything else. A few singles. Pretty damn cheap, and actually a bit cheaper than the other location. Not much in the way of customer service. Acres and acres of parking. Good place to come to stock up.

I went to the location on Milwaukee St. This place is huge and has the biggest liquor dept that I have ever seen in a grocery store. It was a mad house and walked around for ten minutes before finding the liquor dept. Anyway they do have a big beer selection but it is almost all in sixers and have very few bombers and a small single selection. A lot of the stuff they had I could get in Illinois but they did have Central Waters, Bells, Viking, Stone, Tyrenna, Oskar Blues, Smuttynose, New Glarus and Ale Asylum which I cannot get in Illinois. Rerate: This place is much improved and has a great singles selection. Great place

A pretty good selection of beers for a store that also sells groceries. My only complaint is that most everything is stuck in coolers which means you might have to wait for it to warm. The Pick 6 can be a good deal depending what is available but it can be hit or miss - sometimes the selection of singles is great and sometimes it is sparse. Worth a stop to pick up Wisconsin local beers.

Typical Woodmans location with lots of beer and not a lot of service. A handful of beers are available in the singles section but it the new ones I want don’t seem to make it in here. I wanted the new Woodman’s brews but they were only available as a sixer. But still, a great place to buy beer and not far from the I-94.

The selection of foreign beer is minimal, but this is Madison...read the reviews of all the stores here and you’ll quickly discover that they all offer something different, and you’ll have to hit more than one place. This is your stop for singles of Wisconsin micros, it has easily the biggest selection I’ve ever seen in one store, a couple hundred in-state options I’d guess, for that great $7 a mixed-six price. Forget the service, but you have to stop here, along with Riley’s and Steves.

I had a hard time finding the liquor section of this enormous food market, but when I did it was well worth the search. Significantly larger selection than Woodman’s Green Bay. Don’t let the relatively low avg. rating fool you; it is lower due to poor service and ambiance scores, the two things I think most folks can deal with as long as the selection and prices are great, which they are. And frankly, I like the ambiance. Has a lot more American craft singles (mostly bombers) than Woodman’s Green Bay. Yet, the best selection is of American craft sixers. Lowest prices for beer I have seen anywhere in a long time. Therefore, if you want to try out something new, the 6-pack wont set you back quite as much. You’ll find some surprises here as I did; 3 different Ale Asylum brews in bottles. I agree with others that the employees are a little grumpy. Perhaps they’re underpaid which helps explain the low beer prices. Just one thing to keep in mind when you go there....they accept CASH ONLY!!!!!!!

This place is enormous. They have a large selection of Wisconsin beers with a smattering of other Midwest and American micros from further afield. I didn’t really browse through the import section much, but it was also substantial. There is a big selection of singles which you can mix and match. As others have said previously the prices are lower than they are at Steve’s and Riley’s. Stop here first as S Gammon Rd is only one exit away from the Steve’s on Mineral Point Rd.

Very nice selection of Wisconsin micros. Also, I got a few others I hadn’t seen before. I will definitely make this a regular stop on trips to Madison. I continue to really enjoy this place, what a great selection. The location on the east side does not have the large selection of Wisconsin singles. However, they seem to have a larger selection of cheap 12 packs and cases of WI lagers. On another visit, still got lots of new stuff, but their singles selection is almost what it was a year ago.

This was easily the biggest beer section that I’ve seen at a Woodman’s to date. Had all the cans of Oskar Blues as well as the most recent New Glarus. Pretty much as good of a selection as you’re likely to find in Wisconsin. And the prices are great.
