4.15/5  rDev -4.4%
quality: 4 | service: 4 | selection: 4.5 | $$

This place rocks house. They have a ton of beer that you can't buy in MN. A huge wall of great singles and I found a couple of odd rareities I have never heard of. Tons of New Glarus, Founders, Central Waters, ect. I walked out of the store with way more than I was planning on buying.

The store is kind of like a dungeon. Very unique, but I like it as a beer store look.

The service is alright there. They asked if I needed help, but I was ok with finding everything.

The value is pretty fair. Noticed some NG big bottles $.50 more compared to Chincones, but big deal. Casanovas has a better selection.

Good store, good prices, great selection! I will be coming back.

After appealing to locals for a trip to Hudson, WI my wife and I made the stop on a dreary Thursday. Parking was tough with all the snow and ice, but managed to get a vacated spot as soon as I turned in. Walked thru the door and immediately knew I was in the right spot. Wandered around a while before asking for help, couldn't understand the layout. Store help was confused at first as well, seems recent restock? Picked up a few lagers to take back tothe hotel and the wife found her favorite Zombie Killer beer. A few were warm, but were quickly cooled in the "chiller".
Coming from the land of "state store" systems, I yearn for a Casanova down the street where "everybody knows your name". Worth the stop if you cross the St. Claire river entering Wisconsin.

A little jaunt here on Thanksgiving day as just about all the MN stores are closed.
Loved the selections, tons of stuff CA natives could only dreamed about. I saw tons of stuff from New Glarus, Ale Asylum, Lucid, August Schell, Summit, Tyranena, Flat Earth, etc. They break 6-packs only on selected items, which was a bit inconvenient for me.
The other plus is that they do growler fills for superb beers. I brought my Bootleggers & Beachwood growlers & filled them up with Toppling Goliath Golden Nugget & CW Coffee Stout with insane reasonable prices without getting absurb interrogations. The service is straightforward & helpful. They will help you find the beers & answer questions without tapping into your life history.
Overall, I had a good experience here.

Visited on a Monday after work.

A – An old crowded liquor store. Can't beat the location – right across the state line from MN and thus an easy opportunity to pick up beers not distributed to MN (e.g. FFF and New Glarus)

Q - No reason to believe otherwise. Almost everything available cold.

S – Nice, friendly, helpful.

S – Very good selection bordering on great. Lots of singles available on imports and bombers. Less so for 12 oz bottles.
