A few high quality foreign beers here, but its mostly about local stuff. Lots of singles available and the prices are decent. Customer service vascillated between grudgingly helpful and downright unpleasant. Parking was fine.
Excellent selection of local WI beers. Lots of single bottle options, which I loved. Fair pricing and the guys behind the counter seemed to know their beer. They mentioned that the city was forcing them to leave their current location because the intersection is expanding...that sucks. This was a solid bottle shop.
Very good selection of local brews. Was impressed with the variety and the customer service. I also liked the individual bottles so you could pick more single bottles to try the various brews. Would definitely recommend for those who are searching for the Wisconsin brews.
Passing through Madison onto Darkness and we had to stop at one of the highest rated beer stores along the way. Its a decent place, worth stopping by if you are close but not a destination place at all. The quality of the beers is average, not a ton of super high quality beers or internationals but most of the better local brands. The selection is heavily biased toward local offerings Central Waters, NG, etc. They have several of each which is great for someone driving though to get locals you canít get out of state. As an added bonus they offer tons of singleís of most of the local beers, so for the ticker like me its decent. The prices are super cheap as well so thatís welcome as well.
Stop by for cheap locals but donít go out of your way.
Fairly decent place to buy some great brews. Wow, they had a lot of things that I was going to buy, but because Iím traveling, I simply donít have the suitcase space for it; plus, I donít want to pay $100 just to fucking lug this shit across the country. Anyways, the staff was so-so. Itís not that they were rude, but they didnít seem that friendly to non-locals. This place caters to locals, for sure; which I donít think is a bad thing, but, please, donít slight the beer lovers. The prices "seem" decent, but Iím not from Madison, or surrounding areas, so I couldnít say as to whether or not theyíre reasonable. Well, despite the trivial complaints, Iíd say this place is top-notch. This has a great representation of Midwest beers, and a decent amount of Belgian beers, as well. Fairly surprised to see some Mikkeller beers here that I havenít seen anywhere else. Iím happy that I was able to visit because this was bordering the limit of where my hotel shuttle services. Give íer a try if youíre in Madison. Sheboygan.
Lots to choose from. Well organized - not overly stocked. Didnít notice anything particularly positive or negative regarding the ambiance. I have found beers here I have not been able to find elsewhere.
Stopped in to Steveís Liquor the morning before GTMW. The service was excellent as both of the people working made sure I was helped and gave me some great suggestions on beers I should try. The overall selection is not as good as Woodmanís but there are some beers to be found here that I did not see at Woodmanís. Prices were a little higher here than I saw at Woodmanís. In a nutshell, this is the place to go to find what you cannot find in Woodmanís. Compared to the other smaller stores I visited in Madison this was the best.
I checked out this place here on ratebeer before we left house along with rileys these were the two stops me and the wife were going to make on our little day trip to madison both places were rated almost dead even but I know which one is better now. singles selection was weak in quality even on locals but Iíve rated a ton of new glarus brews so i was really looking for central waters and tyranena along with some other brews I canít get in chicagoland they did have oskar blues in single cans capitol ,lake louie and ale asylum but I was looking for the best of what wisconsin has to offer and was quite dissapointed i did buy a mixed 6 pk. that cost me 15 and change if your cruising on us 12 stop in,it is very close to highway the staff was freindly and they did break a 6er of devil dancer for me but that cost $19.99 back home at Binnys it was $17.99 but the other 5 were average at best just as the store was
