so by reading reviews and reading what others have said about this woodmans, made me drive 35 miles to this store this morning. I was expecting a great selection on beers and single bottles, I was so dissapointed, no single bottle area, almost nothing at room temp everything ice cold which does me no good in this summer heat to drive 35 miles back home. The only beer i found i wanted was the scurvy and it was on sale at room temp so i bought a 4pac. I would say if your in the area and driving by go in, brong a cooler so to keep the beer in, but this IS NOT A PLACE TO MAKE A SPECIAL TRIP TO. I am better off driving the 22 miles and head south to Binnys in Highland Park Illinois, at least there i know they have a large selection of single bottles and at room temp

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.

Made a run up here for some New Glarus while in North Chicago for business. I wasn't aware, but this is just a portion of a grocery store.
The selection was okay, nothing spectacular, just the regulars from well known local brewers. Very few singles available, and many that were seemed to be old beers they were trying to get rid of. I actually saw a wheat ale with a brewed on date of 2004 (I visited in 2007)! Check any dates that are available, I found quite a lot of old beer.
The service was friendly enough, helped me get boxes and pack up my Wisconsin haul. I didn't talk to them about beer, so I can't comment in knowledge, but they seemed to be just a general clerk at the grocery store.
One note, they do not accept credit cards. Luckily they take debit cards, but just a heads up for anyone who may be going to stock up.

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.

Well this is the second time I am reviewing due to the ongoing server issues at BA!!! Anyway this place is the place I go when I am travelling for work in the area and I am looking for some Midwest brews that I can not find on the East Coast to take home. I can always get a great selection of New Glarus, Bells, Goose Island, and many other locals brews that frankly I am not familiar with. Is this place a good or great beer store destination? No but worth a stop if you are in the area. One other annoying note is that they only take cash or check (WTF it is 2009).

Finally made a stop into this woodmans.
Pretty much the cookie cutter layout of any other woodmans. Some things are a bit different but nothing extreme.
The selection is pretty much the same as any other woodmans as well. Except a bit more sparse. It seemed like they take a bit less care of the beer section in here as compared to the other stores I've been to. Like NG for example. In my local woodmans there is an entire section devoted to it. In this one it seemed like an after thought.
No service but that's a given at any woodmans.
Overall this place is like woodmans light in my opinion.

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.

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.

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
