Simple bar atmosphere, bunch of regulars, and a 400+ bottle cellar. Not the place to go for that rare Cantillon, but their list is almost guaranteed to have something you would like to try. Prices are pretty good for the midwestern "locals," a bit steep on many of the other bottles. 25% discount for carry out.

Located in downtown on what seems like a main downtown street. I found parking on a nearby side street although it was more generous since it was a Sunday. Place wasn’t terribly crowded which was good since they only had one guy working. The interior, especially the bar, was well worn and faded which added a intimacy The tap list, with the exception of the new glarus offerings, was solid but nit spectacular. The bottle list on the other hand was full of Mikkellers, southern Tiers, Stillwater,, and even a Three Floyd’s. they stored the beer in this large copper pot which contained these massive lazy Susan’s. It does make an impression. I also like how they were the beer at something close to cellar temperatures so you can really taste it. I didn’t see too much of a college crowd but then again you’re not likely to see one on a summer Sunday. All in all it was a pretty good hang.

(Visited 05/2006): Bodega is on 4th/Pearl in town and is thankfully a short walk from most of the area hotels. Parking does not seem to be an issue, but it probably depends a lot on whether the local college is in session. The interior is pretty small with a lived-in look. There are high tables on one side and the bar is on the other, with not a lot of room between. On the plus side this place has one of the most impressive bottle collections I have ever seen. On the minus side it is dingy in places and the bathroom is a little scary.. And what a beer selection they have! There are around 15 taps, with local/regional selections like Tyranena, Berghoff, & Capital, along with other gems like Kasteel. As for bottles they are pushing 300 with beers from everywhere. Again Wisconsin is well-represented. There is literally no way you could come in here and not find something new and/or something you love. The lazy-susan cooler full of beer bottles behind the bar is worth the trip alone. Service here was great on a Tuesday night. The bartender was helpful in pointing out local brews and knew her selection. She even went as far as to offer the binder with all of their beers. No food is offered here beside popcorn. All in all this place is an unbelievable find for a relatively small city. I am glad to be travelling here for work every few months.

Tremendous beer bar! "Brew pub" in their name is a bit misleading - they don’t brew their own, but they sure have a heck of a selection of brews! My server was great - he let me sample anything I wanted from their taps. The beer menu can be viewed by style or alphabetically by name (they print 2 different lists), and they also show the beer’s origin, style, RateBeer rating, and the rating from Beer Advocate. Very helpful! Bar is cool - hardwood floors, and a huge collection of tap handles, coasters, and empty bottles (in the windows). Also had the Cubano sandwich - tasty. Great spot.

A typical "Wisconsin" feel to this bar in downtown Lacrosse. Doesn’t appear to have been updated in ages. Bartender was friendly though has to be asked multiple times for water. Tap list was solid but not outstanding, however a great bottle list is available. Sandwiches were solid for bar food and prices were nice. A cool little place.

A couple of visits over the years, most recently in the fall of 2014. I personally absolutely love the slight-above-dive ambiance and the massive amounts of clutter on the walls and bar - almost detritus. As others have mentioned, not a huge or spectacular tap list generally although given how good the top-level brewing is in WI-MN-IA-IL these days, you could get something pretty special; I had a NG Belgian Red on tap and a bottle of an older (and I believe discontinued at the time) NG beer on my most recent visit, pretty sure my brother had a Surly. Haven’t tried the food except for the cheese curds which were above average. Some of the bottles do seem overpriced, some don’t - best to have an idea of typical pricing in the area before you start shelling out a lot on the more expensive stuff.

For being tucked away in the middle of downtown La Crosse this is a diamond in the rough. Offering a very diverse selection of beers from around the region (and world) if you cannot find something here you should consider hanging it up.

The drafts themselves may not be too spectacular. After being spoiled by places like La Cav du Vin, the Beer Engine, and the Great Danes this cannot compete on that level. However if you bear in mind where it is located this has a distinct edge over anything else within probably an hour’s drive.

Be sure to ask if there is anything that might not be listed on the menu. When I was there a couple of things were lurking in the cooler that was either not listed (or I’d just overlooked them). They did let us open a bottle of Two Women Lager and even provided two glasses at no charge. Overall I think I’d come back here if I were in La Crosse again.

I have been going to this place for about 10 years, not continuously, but probably a handful of times over that period. And, it appears to me that the quality of their selection has improved markedly in the past year, although I see from balke_13’s rating that they had beers from many of the brewers I saw on this trip over a year ago. So, perhaps either I didn’t read over the beer list all that closely last year or wasn’t as familiar with the reputations of the brewers. balke_13 didn’t mention Three Floyds, and they now also have their Alpha King. The quality of their tap selection isn’t so hot, however. It is a different selection than you will see other places, but just didn’t have the home run hitters like they do in their bottle selection. The most interesting one I found was Great Lakes Burning River, and it wasn’t that great. I found their prices to be quite reasonable for some beers, and more what I would have expected on others. A bottle of Alpha King was only $3 while DFH 60, 90, & 120 were something like $5, $8, & $16, respectively. Other brewers represented include: De Dolle, New Glarus, Bells, Rogue, Avery, Quilmes, JW Lees, St. Bernardus and much more. Highly recommended.

Nice selection of bottles and a few interesting things on tap. I really liked their beer bottle cooler. It’s a converted brew kettle that is used like a lazy susan. The crowd is definitely college town styled. Friendly folks. While the seleciton was good, I was not too impressed as most things seemed to be relatively readily available.
