April 2009 Update: Furthermore and Lake Louie have arrived.
Man, this place was amazing. I have never seen such a selection of craft and micro brews. I went in looking to stock up on New Glarus and Leinie's and boy did I come out well at Woodman's. The place has coolers running along the back and side wall and the prices were second to none. I'm talking $10.69 for 12 bottles of Leinie's Honey Weiss, Sunset Wheat, ect. New Glarus had 12's of Spotted Cow and Fat Squirrel priced at $13.69 for 12 which is among the lowest I have seen. Additionally, there was every kind of 6 pack for Leinie's and New Glarus imaginable, and even a New Glarus 12 pack sampler. Overall for beer selection I haven't seen anything that compares. Prices were among the best I have seen in the state. I can't comment on the service because I never needed any, but I never noticed many people walking around. Best piece of advice when going in there is to have a gameplan of what your going to buy.

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.

Stopped by on my way back to Minneapolis from Ann Arbor. Liquor section is in a separate room from the grocery store, with beer along one side in a cooler-like section and also some along the back. Good selection, especially of Wisconsin beers as you can imagine, along with other stuff like a couple FFF, Boulevard smokestacks, New Belgium, Stone, Dogfish Head, etc. Had a decent, but not gigantic, singles section. I wasn't able to find any of the somewhat old special releases I was looking for, though that was not surprising or a real critique. They did have some older New Glarus ones (just not the ones I was seeking).
What surprised me most were the prices. $9.50 for La Folie, versus $12.99 in Kansas City & $15 in Minneapolis. Singles were mostly under $2 and the Boulevard Smokestacks were all $8 (though none of the 'special' smokestacks). Never had anyone say anything to me while browsing, which was fine. The who rang me up was nice and when he mistakenly rang one bottle up twice he was very apologetic and quick to get the amount refunded. They don't take credit, but do take debit, so be prepared.

Stopped in based upon reviews and location on my way down to Chicago. Let's just say they have one hell of a selection. This is one huge store to begin with and close to one half of the store walls are covered with refrigerated craft beer. New Glarus and Ale Asylum a plenty with tons of other crafts that WI carries. Prices were very good. Bell's Batch 9000 for $15.49 a six pack? Wow. Case price and mix your own six discounts as well. Didn't see any workers around except for by the registers. He was very friendly though. An awesome beer store that was well worth the stop just off of the freeway.
