Stopped in here with VDubb86 to scope out some Wisconsin-y goodness. The beer section is along the walls of the liquor department, which is separated from the rest of the store. Everything is in coolers, save a very small display of Ridgeway singles in the middle of the place. A great selection of local sixers, with some minor representation from other states as well. No singles to be found, but there's a small but loaded selection of bombers to make up for this. Cases and BMC stuff is along the back wall and most of the left wall, the rest of which holds a kinda sad variety of import singles. The prices are pretty nice (Alpha Klaus is cheaper here than by us?), and the service is friendly and helpful, if a bit on the rare side. Overall, I think I'm gonna make it my business to make a run up here probably once a month: I needs my Wisconsin fix!

This is my go-to beer store and has treated me very well over the years. Well, it isn't a beer store so much as a grocery store that happens to have some great beers, but it still gets the job done. Lots of great Wisconsin beers such as New Glarus, Tyranena, Ale Asylum, Sprecher and the like, and also lots of good beers from outside the area. A great place for those across the border in Illinois to come for Wisconsin-only beers like New Glarus. All the beer is kept in a cooler, which is mostly a good thing. Lots of macro, but once again, this is not meant to be a specialty beer store and that's what most people drink in these parts. The prices are very reasonable compared to other shops in the area.

I was in Kenosha for the day for I checked beerfly for the top place around to get NG. I pulled up to this place and right away was impressed with the size. Sadly, it was down hill from there. Almost all the beers are in a cooler which is a huge no no. The beer that was there was over 50% crappy macro stuff. I really went there for the NG. They had a decent selection, 7 regulars but only 2 unpluggeds. The rest of the selection was poor. They had some stone beers but were out of a couple. I would not go here unless you just want to get some NG, has to be better locations out there.

I'm from IL and these guys carry Stone. 'Nuff said. Awesome. Great prices, great selection, not sure if there is a beer brewed in WI you can't find here (though Lakefront Fuel Cafe is strangely absent fairly often). Awesome New Glarus and Tyranena selection. Also impressive CA selection (lotsa Lagunitas, North Coast, Stone (as previously mentioned), Sierra specialties, etc... Love me some Hop Whore, from Tyranena, too. That was a nice surprise. They also seem to generally receive huge shipments of the Bell's and Founders' specialties. Recommended

A bit better than the typical Woodman's but same in appearance. Like the other locations the Liquor store is connected but you have to purchase everything seperately in that section. Also typical of Woodman's Liquor department is the insanely long lines I encounter every time
The cashiers are always friendly and go as fast as they can though which is good. I have yet to come across any employee helping outside the check out lines though.
As for the selection, they have more than the typical Woodman's. The coolers line the left side and most of the back of the store with beer in six packs but this location has a warm shelf of bigger bottles. Bombers and 750s and such. A lot to chose from here. Good selection of Belgian beers, a lot of Euro Imports, but it mainly revolves around American craft beer.
A lot of Wisconsin stuff with surrounding areas chiming in too.
I scored a six pack sampler of six different August Schell beers which I've been looking for forever so that made me really happy. Good pricing here too. Typical of most other places but decent nonetheless. Really out of my way besides the occasional trip to and from Illinois.

A must stop for the beer geek on a Midwest mission who does not have time for a trip to Milwaukee. I was in Chicago for work with about a half day to do beer shopping. This Woodman's is close to the border so it made an excellent addition to my beer itinerary.
The selection of Wisconsin only beers was quite good. I was able to grab some New Glarus and Central Waters stuff, among others. There was a good selection of Sprecher, Capital and Ale Asylum, among others. Also some FFF and Bells.
International selection was decent if rather small.
Prices were good, service was pleasant. A great stop that I will make anytime I am in the area with limited time.

My wife has dragged me to Woodman's in prep for many holiday dinners. I never knew there was a seperate store within the store that was filled with such good selection. The selection is not very large, but definitely sufficient, and Kenosha is a much shorter drive for me than Mundelien or Algonquin.
I'm a big fan of New Glarus, and being from right over the border in Illinois, I find myself making special trips to find it. If I want the entire New Glarus line available to me, Woodman's is where I go.
I was not approached while there, so I cannot comment on the service.
They carry mostly six packs, and most are refridgerated. There is a selection of 22oz., but probably not enough for most enthusiasts. There is however, a very good representation of most beer styles.
This is a fine beer store, in my opinion, it's not a Binny's or DiCarlo's, but it met my beer needs. While you're there, check out the main store for their specialty meats and cheeses.

I visited this Woodman's on 9/20/2009.
The beer and liquor area of Woodman's is a store within a store (the groceries are separate) and it even has its own entrance on the side of the building. Parking was more than ample.
Upon entering, there are a few sale beer items on shelves near the registers, but the bulk of the selection is down the left wall and across the entire back of the store. I would say there were 30-40 cooler doors of beer, with at least half or more sporting craft beer six packs. I saw all of the larger Wisconsin and greater midwest breweries represented (New Glarus, Lakefront, Tyranena, Ale Asylum, Central Waters, Bells, FFF, Goose Island, etc) as well as a ton of stuff from the smaller Wisconsin breweries that you don't see if you live outside the state. There were also a couple aisles of warm beer, with a strong repesentation of imported Belgian, German, and British stuff. Being September, there was also a bunch of different Oktoberfest beers on hand.
The service was friendly but a bit less than knowledgable. Prices ranged from very fair to pretty low, depending on the beer.
All in all, this is an easy place to get to with a great selection and super prices. I will make a habit of stopping here whenever I am in the area!

Woodman's in Kenosha is decent, but a few simple changes could make it great. the six-pack section is along the lines of other Woodman's. there are no singles of these six-packs, however, which leaves much to be desired. some singles of imports are offered at room temperature, with all the six-packs in coolers.
quality is good. same as other Woodman's without many dusty bottles and clean conditions.
service is non-existant, much like any grocery store liquor section.
selection is good. most local breweries are represented with their full lines, including New Glarus, Sprecher, Capital, Central Waters, and others. otherwise there is nothing too hard to find or limited in nature.
overall, this is a decent stop right off of the highway for beer, but the Woodman's by the airport in Milwaukee is much better.

Woodman's is a warehouse type market. They sell in quantity, but luckily, they have no problem with quality either.
The liquor store is large and industrial, but also quite functional. Along the sides (three of the four) are refrigerated cases. As you circle the cases (from left to right) the beer gets progressively shittier in quality, going from craft to imports and eventually to cases upon cases of macros.
Selection is decent, with a heavy focus on Wisconsin beers, but apparently I've been spoiled, as the selection at the Madison Woodman's is far superior. However, this Woodman's stocks some brands currently unavailable in IL, so it is still worth the stop when I'm in the area.
Service is non-existent. On a recent visit, there was literally one employee in the entire store and he was running a cash register. The line of people waiting to purchase their goods, snaked around a couple of aisles. Normally, I would not tolerate this and I would simply leave, but I got off the highway specifically to go here so I sucked it up and waited in this impressively long line.
