Decent store, right off campus and off State Street. Easy to miss rushing past, with almost no parking. Two lines of coolers and some shelving for craft stuff. Seem to always pick something up here that I do not find elsewhere.

Store right next to/almost on campus, pretty much the place to go for easy access beer. Pretty decent selection, but prices are higher due to its proximity to the campus. Not much of a parking lot either. Worth checking out.

Great place. Single bottle selection of Wisconsin beers was very good. Lots of local beers. Also New Glarus Raspberry Tart available (which wasn’t available at the brewery in New Glarus). Nice service. Easy to find.

This place was excellent. I was in downtown Madison, without a car, and I needed a place to stock-up on Wisconsin beer. Since I couldn’t drive, and I was within walking distance, I figured I would give it a try. Believe me when I say, you won’t be let down. The selection was extensive; albeit, the single bottle selection was a bit "leaner" than I would’ve liked it to have been, but still, there was enough to keep me satiated. It didn’t have the biggest selection, in terms of total bottles, but they seemed to take a, somewhat, calculated approach, which made the selection better than it actually is, when compared to other places. I would definitely give this place some attention, and see what they have in stock, as you’ll definitely be leaving with something. Again, not as great as other places, if you can get around, but it sure as shit is up there. Pretty nice place, with some decent service.

Visited August 10, 2013 on the way to the shuttle for Great Taste. Had to stop in for the place tick.

Interesting liquor store conveniently located next door to the Brickhouse BBQ. I found all kinds of things from plastic Kvass bottles to lambic bottles to locals. Pretty nice selection over all. The prices were a bit high and I didn’t particularly feel like spending $25 on a Golden Blend but the option was there. That and we were about to get on a school bus to go to a big beer festival. The service was friendly and asked if we needed any help. Still kicking myself for not grabbing a bottle of kvass, or at least taking a picture of one.

Visited in October. Very large selection and the staff was very responsive. Found just about everything I was looking for. Sometimes I wish I lived in Wisconsin. Do think this store deserves higher marks. Perhaps a bit pricey.

I don’t understand why this isn’t rated higher. From the perspective of someone out of state, this is a great place to find a good selection of Wisconsin singles, along with some outstanding international beers--things I don’t see in Minnesota. Best store near the University. Perhaps if I spent more time in WI, it wouldn’t look so good, but whenever I’m at UW, this is where I go to stock up on beers to bring home with me.

Really awesome store in downtown close to campus. Just about everything is in refrigerators. Was able to pick up a ton of New Glarus stuff including unplugged series 4-packs, Belgian Red, Raspberry Tart, Three Floyds Dreadnought. Great selection of singles. Could definitely go on a shopping spree here!

I love the boisterousness of this store. Reminds me of my own! Definitely a little rough around the edges, but you can tell that its a lot of fun! Great selection of breweries, but I could do with some more variety from said purveyors. Check out their upper tier section with an escort. Totally cool liquor/wine area with an awesome aerial view!

Top notch beer store. Everything they can get their hands on from the state, plus great stuff from other states. They do not concentrate on Stone and the like, just their top picks. This put me in the unique position of picking up almost everything in stock, ex the Shelton brothers stuff. Single bottles of everything. I was here well over an hour fulfilling my customs import limit from cooler after cooler. Only the very high abv are available non-coolerService OK, mostly younger guys, and it was buzy.
