Casanova now has Stone IPA, PA, Ruination, Arrogant Bastard, DFH 120 and a few more 4pks. A bunch or Southern Tier, Oskar Blues, and new beer arriving everyweek. They also have the largest single bottle rack in the cities. They have over 250 12oz bottles to pick from and they are both priced individualy. Definatly worth the stop or make a trip out of it because they are open everyday even sunday.

Awesome place, and such a short jaunt from the cities!
What an amazing liquor store! An extremely helpful and happy to take the time to discuss beers. There are so many beers they a crammed in the store, but it has a nice feel to it overall. Selection is amazing and they have some nice beers on tap for growlers as well. Prices are good too! What a place, perhaps my favorite beer store in the US!
As a Minnesota resident, this is the place for everything Wisconsin. Toppling Goliath for growler fills?! How can you top this? Right across the border, 1/2 size growlers, good selection of beers not found in MN... worth the trip every time.
Ancient roadside building, set into a hillside with beer caves in the basement, with a bar and growler fills too?? Sign me up.
Big thanks to Howard for braving a severe thunderstorm to get us here right after 9am when they opened (every day apparently). Even though the bar was closed, they ran over and filled a couple growlers of Toppling Goliath Golden Nugget ($9.99 refill, awesome) and were generally super helpful and willing to chat about beer so early in the morning.
The vibe here is super cool if you’re into historical buildings, vintage roadside americana and the like. Lots of dark wood with eclectic cool knick-knacks, A giant moosehead, an aquarium with colorful fish and a sunken growler among the rocks, old historical framed photos, and the occasional tin beer sign in the back. Beer shelves are in the back and crammed full. Got a mixed sixer here of a few NG Thumbprint series, and new local American Sky beers from Hudson Brewing Co. They had obscure imports from Birra Del Borgo, Hannsens, Vanberg & DeWulf and others. Craft coolers seemingly go on forever, wrapping along the back wall. Great prices and selection.
Overall a very cool and unique place, I hope to return and check out the Nova next time.
awesome place tucked away in Hudson, WI just across from MN and not too far from I-94. Workers were helpful, great selection of brews. Picked up TG PsuedoSue and they had tons of it. Also snagged an Anderson Valley Wild Turkey Bourbon Barrel Stout. Prices were very fair.
Really awesome, fairly small and cramped, old liquor store. The best beer selection in Hudson and the best place to get a New Glarus fix if you’re visiting from the Twin Cities. Very good selection...I wish I lived closer to this place!

Update 5/20/07: Still a good store, but the selection has not expanded and might even be a little smaller. NG six packs are now more expensive than Chicones, and it is unclear if they are serious about more single bottles. Also, the beer list in the restaurant has none of the quality beers sold only feet away in the liquor store. -This is a great store. The service couldn’t be friendlier. They definitely care about craft beer and say they are increasing their selecition. Lots of random things we can’t get in the cities, and quite a few from Dogfish head. There is a nice, romantic restaurant attached, so bring the wife for dinner. The manager or owner, I’m not sure which, said they offer around 30 beers in the restaurant. Stop here when you go to Chicones. I estimate around 250-300 beers. Some sold as singles, and they seem open to the possibility of expanding the singles selection. My entree with sprimp and pasta was creative and delicious, but the bread served on the side was simple grocery-store French bread.

Drove over from the Twin Cities specifically to find Toppling Goliath and New Glarus stuff.... and I found’ em! Not such a large store, but it is packed with all kinds of goodies. Maybe 300+ bombers, and who knows how many six-packs and singles. Also 22 growler taps -- all great stuff. The owner, Tyrrell, was friendly and efficient. A lot more here that I would have liked to have taken away, but there’s only so much I can carry on a plane.
