This was a interesting looking grocery store that Kyle and I randomly stopped in to see if we could find stuff we were looking for in Wisconsin. This place is a nice big clean store, got a pretty darn good selection in comparison to any grocers that I'm familiar with in Illinois. Service was ok, but then again it's a grocery store so what do you really expect. I must admit this is a little random place that will get you some pretty good craft beers for a good price. I was honestly really impressed.

Stopped in here on a lark with VDubb86 after learning that Cellars was not yet open. It's a nice grocery store with a pretty nice beer selection (especially considering where it is) in the corner. Some is out on shelves and stacks and whatnot, but most of the stock is in coolers. A nice selection of Wisconsin brews primarily, but there's good stuff from all over, including a good amount of HopSlam. Most of the beer is in sixers, but there's also a small (but pretty sweet) singles selection as well. Nothing uber-rare is to be found, but good stuff nonetheless. Not much in the way of service during our visit, but the stockpeople didn't seem crusty when I passed them elsewhere, so I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt here. Prices are more than fair, given the area and the fact that this is, again, a grocery store rather than a beer or liquor store. Overall, I could see returning here, though most likely it would be during a Cellars run like this time.

I stop here on occasion and realized I've never given it a review. Here we go.
Sendiks are for the most part all the same. Some have a bigger beer selection than others. This one is about average for a Sendiks. Two enclosed wall cooloers one nothing but craft the other with about a third craft and a singles section. To the left of the coolers is a small shelf with the "harder to find stuff. Rodenbach, Bruery, Stone and Oskar Blues cans. A small "deals section out in front with whatever they are pushing.
I usually check here for odd ball stuff since they seem to have one or two bottles of things I would never see elswhere. The prices are just touch higher on some things yet a touch lower on others so nothing out of line.
Not a must stop but they hold their own.

To find a selection like this at a local beer retailer would be a great find, but finding it in the middle of a grocery store is downright impressive.
Walk into the Sendik's Food Markets' Franklin locaton, turn left and head for the Wine & Spirits department. You'll find a refrigerated section with 17 doors, each consisting of six shelves, all dedicated solely to beer. (One door houses entirely seasonal offerings.)
Everything's here, with selections from Ale Asylum; Bell's; Big Sky; Capital; Central Waters; Cooper; Dogfish Head; Flying Dog; Founders; Furthermore; Goose Island; Great Lakes; Hebrew; Lagunitas; Lakefront; Lazy Mutt; New Glarus; New Holland; Red Bridge; Red Hook; Rogue; Sand Creek; Schell; Shiner; Smutty Nose; Southern Tier; Summit; Two Brothers; Tyranena and Victory. And those are just the domestic micros. Import inventory is also expansive. Aside from six packs, you'll also find 750 ml/22 oz. singles. All of which are cold and ready to go.
Sendik's Franklin also has a cooler reserved for Build It Your Way sixers. Price: $8.99. Which isn't bad considering the label diversity. Inside I found a number of organics including Peak Organic, Stone Mill and Wolanger's.
Service is helpful and knowledgeable. John, the Wine & Spirits Manager, has begun stocking a non-refrigerated section of Belgian Abbey and Trappist Ales; Dopplebocks and Unibroue 4-Packs. John appears receptive to customer inquiries, requests and recommendations.
The Wine Department is just as extensive. And the Salad Bar ain't bad either.
