The Coffee Grounds is a fantastic store if you're looking for a nice selection of different beers from around the country (decent selection of imports too). If you're looking for some microbreweries then this is the place to go if you're in Western Wisconsin. They aren't going to have Leinenkugels, Miller, Budweiser, etc. Instead they have some top notch microbrewery beer like Bells, Dogfish Head, Southern Tier, Lagunitas, etc.

Most of the selection is individual bottles, and not very many six packs. However, the six packs are competitively priced (at least the Bell's Hop Slam and New Glarus six packs are).

I'll be done with University soon so I won't be making to the Coffee Grounds much anymore, but when I'm back in town I'll definitely be visiting again.

The selection has expanded and includes a large selection of individually priced singles. The selection of northern Wisconsin breweries is great. Two tap handles have been added for growler fills. In-House Stout is always on and on my last trip they also had Toppling Goliath's Golden Nugget. The service is top notch.

really dig the atmosphere of Coffee Grounds. It's a beer/wine store and a coffeehouse/cafe. Cozy inside with a small seating area and a small selection of homebrew supplies. The quality of the bottles was a little lacking. I actually purchased two sixers that were past the best by date. I guess that's my fault for not checking but they shouldn't be on the shelf. Everything else was good.

The beer guy was asking me questions and giving me his opinion on recently recieved bottles. He seemed knowledgeable and was very helpful.

The selection was rather small but refined. Almost every brewery they stocked were all around quality. Picked up some Tyranena Brewers Gone Wild, a couple Dark Horse selections, and some others. The Belgian selection was good and the European selection was decent.

Good all around store with a very nice atmosphere. Good selection of coffees and wines as well. Well worth the stop if you're anywhere in the area.
