This place was not my favorite. Yeah, there’s a large volume of beer here, but it’s mostly the non-seasonal lineups of a lot of mediocre mid-level microbrewers. Very few limited or seasonal selections here. Little good or rare imports. The singles selection was just a mish-mash of whatever they felt like putting up. It was as if they’d dropped a bunch of six-packs and just put the 4 that made it as singles. The store employees were abominable. Don’t go here, go to Discount Liquor. That place was beer heaven.
The liquor department alone is the size of a small grocery store. The beer is perfectly orginized. With almost all of it kept cold. They have a decent selction of single and bombers too. The selection is only matched by Discount Liquor. Plus the prices are almost unbeatable.
An impressive display of open-air coolers full of microbrews. When you stand at one end it looks like those perspective drawings we did in elementary school, the coolers just faded in the distance. Like the Kenosha store, if their whole back wall was dedicated to only US micro beers! It is full of 6ers, bombers, 750’s and singles. Wow. A smaller cooler, about 1/3 size for Euro beers and part of the back cooler is for micro 12’s and cases. Many WI brewers are available. The prefered place to stop in the Oak Creek/Franklin area since 3 Cellars does not open til 3.
Unbelievable selection and most all of it in coolers. Comparable prices too. Not your average grocery store liquor section.

I have been a fan of Woodman’s for years. But This was the first time i shopped for beer at the Oak Creek Location. I was very happy with the selection. But what makes it so good was that the singles are in the coolers.
Great for picnicing and the like.
The beer section at this Woodmans is nearly 3 times the size of the Kenosha store. Very large singles selection with build your six packs and a nice selection of Belgians to boot. The person running the beer section knows his stuff.
When I lived in Madison, Woodman’s was a regular stop for beer. The vast selection, excellent prices, refrigerated stock, and clean atmosphere always kept me coming back. I was a bit worried that this store might not measure up, but it (at least initially) exceeds the Woodman’s in Madison on all counts. One of the things that bothered me slightly about the Woodman’s in Madison is that the singles selection was horribly managed... What could have been the best in the state was sadly a few straggler bottles with no organization whatsoever. But, Oak Creek Woodman’s appears to have a good start on singles with a lot of unique and rare beers broken out... I just hope they keep it up. Overall a fantastic place to go for beer, and although they might not have quite the same beer atmosphere or singles selection as Three Cellars down the road, it’s by far, the best place to shop for six packs in Milwaukee.
I’d never visited the other Woodman’s in WI before, but this one is in my neighborhood, so I made it a point to stop in as soon as it was clear it was open. It is huge! And has a liquor store-within-the-store to match. I was shocked by the giant six-pack selection of crafts, and pleasantly surprised to find a mix-your-own-6-pack section as well, both of which I thought were unusual for a supermarket. There was a single cashier manning the giant section, so I don’t know if I’d visit anticipating a lot of attention or expertise, but the selection and prices that were below what my local liquor store charges were pretty impressive. Esjaygee was correct - I had not been before and I was NOT disappointed.
The newly opened gigantic Woodman’s in Oak Creek has a new gigantic liquor store to go with it. Quite a large selection of beer available, lots of Wisconsin & Midwest micros and an excellent selection of Belgian & Belgian style beers. The cooler is filled with six-packs galore, and plenty of bombers and even a few growlers and there’s a very large selection of sampler packs along the back wall and of course tons of macros. There is a build your own six-pack section for domestic beers that’s a little pricey and a little limited (not all the beers in the store). Not that I should be putting in a plug for the grocery store, but wow - check it out if you’ve never been in one, you won’t be disappointed.
