Stopped in on the way to Rowland's Calumet, post-Titletown.
Inside it was spacious, as if a small grocery store had a few aisles removed and liquor put in instead. There was some open area in the center, I wandered past a tasting table on my way to the back for the beer. The local WI beers were conveniently clustered in one aisle, and singles were available. Imports and bomber/750s facing them in an opposite aisle. Cuvée Rene, Hop Ruiter, Duchesse were a few of the imports, noticed JP and Bruery 750s across from them. Most of the usual crafts in the cooler, some seasonals. Display of NG Thumbprint series on the floor with singles on the shelf nearby. Friendly service, the beer guy was helpful and offered help while I wandered the aisles. Overall a solid beer spot in Green Bay, though wasn't really wowed.
This seems to be the highest-rated store in WI. Though best in the area, statewide Discount, Riley's, Steve's, Coffee Grounds, and Casanovas all have a wider selection.

Although Green Bay does not get the widest selection of craft beer distributed to it, Ridgeview carries the absolute best variety of craft beer you could hope for. Chris (the owner) stocks all the best from Wisconsin local breweries and out of state breweries like Goose Island, Founders, Bells, The Bruery, and they also have an ample supply of New Belgium's Lips of Faith series beers. On top of that, you can't beat Chris' prices. Maybe it is because I am from Chicago, but I felt like I was getting "Wal-Mart prices" on some of Chris' limited beers! Chris and the staff are very friendly and they have helpful suggestions too.
I found my new "go-to" local place. Highly recommend you pop in if you are in the area!

This is the best place to buy beer in Green Bay. They try their best to get good beer from as far away as Green Bay Distributers can get them. If they dont like the beer they don't stock it.
Nearly every bottle can be bottle individually from every six pack. I have save much money trying one beer that I could have wasted on a six pack of garlicky blach!
One of the things you do have to watch out for are some bottles that look like they belong in six packs are actually individual bottles that do sell for $6+ each. It blew my mind the first time I encountered this and 6 bottles turned out to be $35
Finally, they do have growlers of certain local brewers available. They keep kegs, growlers and labels in the back and you have to ask special for them.
They also have tastings once a week.

I always visit Ridgeview when visiting family in town. Woodman's is generally less expensive for on New Glarus, which I must stock up on while in town. However, Ridgeview is worth the trip because of the superior selection. In stock is Nebraska, Mikkeller, and the biggest selection of Alaskan in town. It is also a great place to find limited release beers.
One of the nice aspects of Ridgeview is that you need not buy a whole six pick to try a beer. You can just grab one bottle. This way, you are not stuck with a six pack of beers you do not like. On the other hand, it is hard to go wrong with most Wisconsin Crafts.
The owner was working during my visit and was both friendly and helpful. I only wish I had this selection closer to home.
