You really should stay out of here because your going to buy way too much beer from their all refrigerated excellent selection.

Following the Great Taste of the Midwest we filled up three coolers. I expect selection is better next month with college back in session and the shelves not being stripped by 7000 out of town/state beer lovers.

Great liquor store all around. Good parking. Restrooms available in attached grocery store. Nice part of town.

Good selection of imports and of course the domestic microbrews are awesome. No sense of stuff that has collected too much shelf time.

While the selection is as good as any big box grocer, it's not necessarily a pleasant place to buy your beer. The liquor section in general is spirit and BMC-centric, and the clientele and employees reflect that. Still, if you're looking for something, anything, that's typical in this distro market, it'll more than likely be available here at a good price.

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.
