helpful if you ask... very large independent Wisc grocery chain sneaking into N. IL. now Extensive selection but do your homework before you visit and you can find some very good deals. Picked up several Sprecher 4 packs cheaper than could find anywhere else

The selection here is more vast than almost any supermarket or liquor stores in the area and they do carry some quality brews. The prices are almost always better than most other stores - definitely a place youíll want to check out in Rockford.

Went there to get Bellís Hopslam since they donít have it in the LaSalle-Peru area yet. Decent selection of Wisconsin beers but no New Glarus. The manager is a good guy and informative of whatís available in the area.

(August 2016). Time for an update. I donít get to this store as often as I do to a lot of other area places, but that doesnít mean it isnít a worthwhile stop, especially if one is looking for Illinois micros and Belgians. Probably the largest selection of Illinois beer Iíve seen at one location, Iíd estimate over 200 different labels yesterday - including half a dozen from local brewpub Pig Minds, which doesnít sell in that many places. Lots of Goose Island of course, but also more from Revolution, Pipeworks and many other Chicago brewers than Iíve seen anywhere else. Maybe 50 Belgians as well, which isnít a huge number but is pretty good in this area. Total bottles and cans must exceed 500 at this point; Iíll try to do a more accurate count on a future visit. Roughly equal now to the Janesville location I think.

(October 2005): The Woodmans in Rockford is weaker than most of the WI branches of the chain...but that may be mostly because the Illinois brewing scene just hasnít caught up to its sister to the north. Two Brothers and Three Floyds commoner beers are here at the lowest prices youíll see, same with K-Zoo/Bells...a great store to be sure but merely a shadow of Madison/Gammon Road.

Their selection is pretty good, Iíve found maybe 10 out of the RateBeer Top 100 here. All the imports/micros are in the cooler. Some regionals, Bells, Founders, Sprecher, but not Three Floyds, hmmm.

They do have bells and many other WI beers. by far the best place in town. check it out! THe mix a 6 pk section is small, but has a good variety.

Okay, this is the place in rockford. THey have some pretty good stuff. Lots of wisconsin stuff, lots of regular stuff. This is the only woodmans that I have seen that includes a mixer place. BTW the selection here is probably better than the Janesville or Algonquin store but in WI they have New Glarus so check that out.

I think the selectionís better at the Kenosha, WI, store that Iíve been at. Nothing to buy today. Still, theyíve got lots of good brews and itís handy knowing about the place should I be in the area and want some decent bottles.

Not a bad place for some import brews and a few micros as well. Prices are better here than most places. Bells, Tyranena, a few 3F. Logliís on State Street has a better selection.

This place is exactly what you would expect a supermarket to look like. You could be standing around the beer section for an hour and no one would bother to help you. Other than that, if you know what your looking for its a pretty good deal.
