(Visited 10/2010): Stopped here while staying in Onalaska on a business trip to La Crosse. The store is located on SR 16 not too far off I-90. There is a large parking lot.
The liquor/beer section is in its own section, with the beer being toward the left of the entrance. Much of it is in coolers, with some on shelves too.
The selection at Woodman’s is pretty good. Brewers like Pearl Street, Central Waters, New Glarus regionally are represented, as are other domestic micros like Rogue, Sierra Nevada and Three Floyds. Some imports are available as well.
Service was pretty friendly but nothing too out of the ordinary for a store like this.
Overall this is a pretty solid spot on the outskirts of La Crosse.

Despite a location inside a grocery store, it still has that liquor store crud to it. If you park on the side, you’ll enter the store next to the liquor section. The BMC is located in the far right aisle and along the back coolers. The craft beer is along the far left aisle. I like that nearly all of their beer was refridgertated. They had a solid national craft section but what distinguishes this place is the large amount of Wisconsin craft they sell as well as a rather sizable’ refridgerated pick 6 for $8.99 which is a couple bucks less than my local charges with vastly inferior beer to select from. True they only accept debit and cash and they dont have much of a bomber section so I think this place is more good local than destination place.

Visited Sunday afternoon. When I initially went in, I parked in the front of the store, and only wound the macro beer in the grocery area. After wandering a bit, I found the full beer / liquor store. The beer selection is good, big selection on Wisconsin beers, and most sold as singles. They had Serendipity, which was a big bonus. Overall, good service, good store. Would give the slight edge to this store over Festival simply because they sold singles rather than mix a six. Either / both are a good stop when in or passing through the La Crosse area.
70 = ★★½ (Locals should check it out, visitors with extended time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Pretty extensive collection and all of it in coolers. Nothing to unusual, but a ton of locals plus some interesting craft brews.

Pretty awesome beer store for being in a grocery store. Singles for sale, lots of local WI stuff, big selection of New Glarus, including Serendipity, Raspberry Tart, and the sour and Berliner from the Thumbprint series. A couple Bruery beers, Hoppin Frog - all around solid spot. Cash or debit card only.

Visited again an was equally impressed. Nice store, and it seems to have improved in the last year. This place had a nice selection for the area including all of the Pearl Street beers and some of the special edition Tyranena and New Glarus brews. They also had all of the regular WI micro selections. The singles were severely lacking. Nice for the area, but it probably had about half the micros of the Woodmans in Madison.

Great place for beer! And wine, and booze, and many kinds of food except a little lacking in the higher end stuff. Prices are great. Service is decent although if you put in a special order or send them a postcard they rarely follow up on it. As for the beer: Excellent selection (especially for the La Crosse area) of import, micro, regional and macro brews. Huge selection of single bottles and six packs, all chilled and ready to go. Also a fair selection of cases and other large quantiies. I assume they have kegs, but don’t rely on that. Also they do carry seasonals and have a heavy selection of Wisconsin products.

I stopped in during an overnight stay in Onalaska. They have a large selection of WI beers, much of which is under refrigeration. I especially like that they sell singles and you mix your own six pack for $8.99. The only downside is they do not accept credit cards, so bring a debit card or cash if you plan to shop here.

Wow! I was shocked. This place was sweet. Bear Republic, DFH, Three Floyd’s, New Glarus, Capital, Sprecher, and Tyreanna was all here, along with some nice imports. I don’t know how often people go to Onalaska, but this is definitely a place to hit if you’re there.

Best bottle shop in LaCrosse, I believe. All bombers in the cooler. Lots of TG when I stopped in (IPA bombers for $7.50 - nice!). Lots of mullets. Lots of cases of McBeer in line. Open on Sundays unlike MN stores.
