One of my favorite places to grab libations, since the prices here are lower than anywhere else in town. Alas, sometimes you sacrifice freshness, but more often than not, it's just fine. The service is average, and I glean more information from the visiting distributors who are frequently on the floor. In fact, I usually mistake them for employees. Selection is pretty impressive, way to many to name, but they have most of my Trappiste favorites, Unibroue, most all the regional micros, Bell's, Ale Asylum, various micros from around the country, European imports, and all the usual macros. Did I mention the prices are low? They're low. Fill up your cart, but don't be surprised if a couple of them are past their prime.

My 2nd choice next to the new Woodmans in Sun Prairie. Best mix of selection and price you can get. I'd recommend grabbing a brewers choice pack. It's a 24 pack of import and micro only they throw together. For around $18 you can't beat that...the worse you'll get is Heineken or Corona.

For what it is, Woody’s is great, but remember that it’s a warehouse grocery store. There’re no sample trays, no fancy décor, and nobody to help you find that rare bottle of something or other.
They have the expected selection of macros, in every possible serving size, but they also have a very nice selection of micros, both domestic and import. The lines will be long, the service will be polite, but don’t expect to engage the clerk in a discussion on the merits of whatever you happened to grab off the shelf.
They DO NOT take credit cards, just cash check and debit.
I guess I don’t know what people expect to find when they pull up to a building the size of a factory. This isn’t Whole Foods, it’s a HIGH volume, lower cost grocer. Get your beer, expect to wait in line, and enjoy that you paid less than most other places for that armful of Founders or Bells or Ommegang or whatever
EDIT: I'm changing my "Quality" rating from 5.0 to 4.0 - They got a case of Goose Island Bourbon County a week or so ago. Like everyone in Madison, they limited the sales, but UNLIKE everyone else in town, they bent you over on the price: $9.99/bottle vs $4.99-$5.99 everywhere else. There's no need for this sort of BS.
