As grocery stores go the selection at Woodman’s rivals an average liquor store. Places like Chuck’s might have an edge but for price Woodman’s cannot be beat for regular beers from the likes of Lake Louie, New Glarus, and Ale Asylum.

The beer takes up about two to three rows and ranges from the local to Belgian, British, and beyond. Very rarely will you find a limited release but for stocking up on the latest Thumbprint or a case of Belgian Red Woodman’s is the place to start.

The rest of the store is given over to other liquors and wine if you want to do additional shopping. I don’t spend much time on that end of the store however so I cannot tell you much about it.

Grocery store liquor shop. Food was in the grocery store... very large selection of locals and domestics. Not a ton of the hard to get imports. Asked about some rare beers and was surprised with a little gift barrel aged from CA. People could barely understand what beer you were talking about though. decent prices.

Probably the best selection of beer in the city, and they have a ton of it! It is your typical grocery store liquor store, but on steroids! Lots to choose from and plenty of it.

Okay...I’m the mayor of this place so I guess I have to rate it. Here’s what you need to know:

- It’s a big-ass place with high ceilings, fluorescent lighting, and very few knowledgeable beer people unless you grab one of the distributors.

- It’s got the best selection of locals in the Madison area--hands down.

- It has the best selection of non-rare imports in the Madison area--hands down.

- You won’t find much in the way of rare imports. If you want those, go to Riley’s or Steve’s.

- It’s the cheapest place in town.

- It has the best mix of domestic, non-WI beer in the area, hands down.

- Did I mention this bitch is big?

- It’s got a meh mix-six area and a decent selection of bombers.

- Definitely can find out-of-date stuff. Check bottle/best by dates and pass on the obscure stuff that doesn’t turn over well.

- If you’re from out of state, go here.

This place has the largest selection in Madison by far. Also, by far the cheapest. Sometimes much much cheaper. However, it is kind of dumpy, with many undesirable people. But, since the place is so cheap with such a selection, can’t help by go here most of the time for beer.

This IS my go-to place in madison for beer. Whenever im back home in northern IL, i always make a tip up here to stock up on good beers to bring back to NM. I have been going here for many years. the beer selection is huge! prices are great. not much in terms of service (nobody around to help out-pretty much serve yourself) however, you cant beat the prices here.

Very good selection of locals and regional brews...nothing crazy, though. Some decent limited release selection. Seems to get things early than other Woodmans. Lacking bomber selection.

From june 22, 2008, was ported over to the wrong Woodmans. Gammon Road location. As with every woodman’s I’ve been to, huge liquor store with plenty of beer to go around. A smattering of beers were available for a build your own six pack (in the cooler) for $9. Plenty of Wisconsin breweries carried here, including a few I can’t find at my local Woodman’s (Oak Creek) like Fauerbach, Falls and Viking. Nothing special here in terms of service, just a big selection of beer at decent prices.

Stopped here on the way out of town after GTMW. Newer than the East location and probably bigger. If you can’t find a parking spot here you probably shouldn’t be driving. Customer service was nearly nonexistent. The liquor area is huge with beer all along the sides of the store. Plenty of singles. Prices are cheap but a little bit higher than the other location in town. Not a place to find anything unusual, though a good place to stock up and you may find a deal (like the $4 Boulevard 750s they have now).

This is from my original review of this location. Finally someone has split the 2 Woodman’s locations in Madison...I visited the Gammon Rd. location during GTMW 2009. The selection and prices were very impressive as compared to other Madison stores. I would probably have more to say about the size of this store had I not just visited Jungle Jim’s in Ohio the day before. But it’s still a massive store. Great selection of just about everything I could think of as someone visiting from out of state. I will say that the one drawback would be that there are not some of the rarer beers here. For that you may want to seek a more specialty store. But for most beers you will find them here
