Casanova's was very easy to find when driving into Hudson, and it quickly became the highlight of my beer trek through Kansas, Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. Inside, the store is a little murky and crowded, but the beer room at the back of the store quickly made me lose track of all else. I grabbed a case box from the cashier and quickly filled it with New Glarus from the shelves (especially happy to find Enigma and Cherry Stout). I moved onto singles next, which is where the store really shines. I'd guess that nearly every beer represented in six-packs is also available in singles, with prices clearly marked-- wonderful. There's a decent amount of six-packs and bombers refrigerated, too, but the readily available New Glarus and Central Waters blinded me from noticing too much about the selection as a whole (did spot Gumballhead, Alpha King, and Robert the Bruce from FFF).

Service wasn't really there-- only one employee was in the store at the time, and he was manning the register-- but in this case, I knew what I was looking for and it was okay.

This store is a must-visit if you want to sample a ton of what the Midwest has to offer-- Dark Horse, New Glarus, Central Waters, Tyranena, Bell's, Founders, and more. Now that I've left, I wish I'd taken the opportunity to buy more! (1,299 characters)

Definitely a hidden gem. Looks like just an old building off the side of the highway. Selection was pretty good in my opinion and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Overall I really liked this place and will be coming back to get more WI goodies. (252 characters)

I make the trek from Minnesota about once a month. They have a great selection all around for beer as well as bourbon. The employees have always been very helpful (164 characters)

My new go-to stop for a TON of great beers I can't get in Minnesota. Staff couldn't have been easier to talk to. Very cool place. (129 characters)

They have an awesome selection of craft beer - especially if you live in Minnesota. They also offer 20 growlers on tap. Their selection of imports is also big. (159 characters)

Choices from about 15-20 different growlers fills. They offer a few beer events during the year. Staff was on point steered my to a bunch of bourbon barrel aged beers. Love the huge singles wall. (195 characters)

Great people. They sell growlers of different breweries and that's a big plus. Beer selection needs to grow! (108 characters)
