This isn't a beer store so much as a grocery store that happens to have some great beer selection. There is a great selection of Wisconsin beers such as New Glarus, Tyranena, Ale Asylum, Sprecher and Central Waters along with many good beers from outside the Wisconsin area including some nice Belgian imports (though not many). This is a great place for those that are traveling as the access from the interstate is easy. The service is sometimes hit and miss. The store is a grocery store after all, but the liqour manager Scott is somewhat knowledgable. The overall selection is great with the only thing comparable in the area being Tenuta's. They do get a good selection of limited release beers as well but with the amount of traffic they get are quickly gone, usually within a day or two. The pricing is fair and the majority of the prices are very competitive. Overall i would recommend Woodman's as a place to check out whenever you are in the area. There is also a great beer bar right up the frontage road called Uncle Mike's which I highly recommend.

Made the journey up from Chicago and without traffic it's fast. Right off the highway and just over the state line. Quick shot for the New Glarus fix. Well run liquor department. Would have suspected their might be a few more WI brewers in-houe but decent number of offerings from New Glarus and Tyranena, Capital and Sprecher but not their whole range. Prices seemed very good and most beer kept refrigerated. Only complaint was very fluorescent lighting everywhere. Decent quick pop for some WI beers but sounds like taking the extra 1/2 hour to Discount Lqiours would be worth the extra effort.

Unlike the review below, I thought this place did nicely for only an 84 mile round trip (plus Uncle Mike's is like ¼ mile up the road). They don't have a huge single bottle selection but they do have a few. Most of the normal things you'd expect; Chimay and your standard Belgium's, a few Lakefront brews, couple Stone bombers and the New Glarus fruit beers.
They do however have a nice selection of most Wisconsin breweries normal lineup. Everything New Glarus offers was there plus the Unplugged series beers that are currently out. Some Capital, Lakefront, Tyranena, Sprecher, loads of Bell's, some Stone, Goose Island, etc. Nothing crazy special or amazing but it's solid and exactly what I was looking for. If I wanted crazy one offs and specialty shit I'd drive another 50 miles (or so) to Milwaukee. Definitely can't complain given the proximity.

Very good selection of Wisconsin-only beers here considering the location. A convenient stopover for Illini like myself to pick up New Glarus, Ale Asylum, Viking, etc. Some prices were cheaper than Illinois too - Dogfish 120 @ 7.99 there vs 9.99 in IL.
about 8 different types of New Glarus (including the famous cherry belgian), 5 types of Ale Asylum, 3+ types of Tyranena.. very decent import selection. Other brews noticed: Stone, Big Sky, Arcadia, Boulder Brewing Co, Viking, Tyranena, Rogue (poor selection of rogue), Capital, Shiner, and many more.

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.

This is probably the best place for value in the whole city. Singles selection is limited to bombers, and staff generally doesn't know much about beer. Selection in general is very broad, and as far as quality they do get some of the higher end releases, but they don't last long. If you want to load up on a broad variation of Great Lakes brews and don't mind missing a few rare releases, then this is your place. For 90% of my beer purchases, this is my go to place. It also serves as a convenient place for people from the Chicago area to load up on New Glarus and other Wisconsin beers, and has easy on/ easy off access to and from I-94.

A-Liquor store within a grocery store. I don't know how I would really describe this better
Q-Very high qualty selection. Literally 5 miles outside Illinois so it is a good stop for any Chicagoan going in or out of wisconsin.
S-Never talked to anyone here. I will knock it down a notch because they DO NOT TAKE CREDIT CARDS! be aware. I don't use debit or cash so it took some extra time for me to figure this out
S-Most of what wisonsin has to offer
V-very good prices on everything. Cannot complain about this one bit

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.

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.

This is a great place to find beers that are not sold outside of Wisconsin or not available in Illinois. They offer variety packs of some big name brewers such as New Glaurs, and all at a reasonable price. If you are looking for a bottle of special rariety or uncoomon this isn't your place. But, if you want a good decent selection for a decent price you will be pleseantly suprised. They also have the sample packs that they sell at the bigg whole sale stores; Stella Family, Leinekugal, ect, and you can buy brats right after in the same place.
