This place is drab, packed too tight, crowded with people, and nobody offers to help you, but DAMN they have a lot of beer. If you want a beer in Madison, and they don’t have it here, you probably aren’t going to get it.

I used to come here often while at UW-Madison in the 90’s. Definitely grocery store liquor department ambiance. Paying with cash, check or ATM can be a bit of a pain, especially when on a serious beerrun these days. Selection definitely better than Woodman’s in Appleton but I get the feeling that they want to get the average Joe drunk, rather than tickling the beergeek’s tastebuds.

A big grocey store with a big liquor department. Staff is basically just clerks, so you need to know what you are looking for. Prices can’t be beat. The only knock I had on the place was that the craft single serve section, although 8 feet long, really focused on the 12oz singles rather than the 22oz and 750s. I found as good of a selection of craft bombers at the next store I went to which was an eigth of the size in that department.

This is from my October 2010 visit to this store. At the time of this original entry the 2 Madison locations were combined...Visited the Milwaukee St. location October 2010. The selection and prices were very impressive as compared to other Madison stores. While I have no complaints with either location, the Gammon Rd. store has more to offer.

Great service, great selection, and great food (it is a grocery store!). Grab some food and grab any beer you like from Woodman’s. On top of all of that, in most cases they have the best prices on food (and alcohol).

Ok, Woodman’s is an absolute must-hit for the beer enthusiast living in or visiting Madison, WIsconsin. Stellar selection of WI beers, decent MI as well. Nothing wild as far as imports go, but above par for sure. The prices are great, the best I saw. Selection and prices may vary a little between the east and west side stores. The west seemed to have a bigger selection of imports.

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

We stopped at Woodmans at the Milwaukee St location on our way out of town after the Great Taste event 2008. The liquor store is connected to a small grocery store, and was relatively easy to find. The selection was pretty good, although I was looking for DFH 120 Minute and World Wide Stout, which they had neither of.
I did find a nice surprise, an oatmeal impy stout (anniversary series) from Stone.
One thing about Woodmans (I wouldn’t have known this except for the fact that I was with ElGaucho who’s been there before) is that they only accept cash or debit cards. They need to post this somewhere on the outside of the store. Actually they need to catch up with the 21st century and change that policy. Then, when I tried to pay with a debit card, it wasn’t accepted because of MN bank laws. But the cashier didn’t know anything, so he had to call over the manager, who explained the reason, and was courteous, however wasn’t apologetic about it to me or the rest of the now long line that had formed in back of me. In the end, I had to hit up the cash machine and come back to pay for my beer.
On the plus side, the prices were on the low side.

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.
