quality: 4 | service: 3 | selection: 4 | $$

MUCH bigger than it looks. Woodman's is a decent stop for beer, although much of the beer is old or oldish. the liquor store entrance is right next to the front entrance to the market, and the beer is along the back wall, most of which is on coolers. the craft section is separated from the macro section (both are on opposite ends of the space). singles are offered, but not of every style offered in six-packs, just sporadic offerings that get chosen by some person for some reason.

quality and service are what one would expect from a grocery store, not too impressive, but the stock boys are great for finding certain styles.

selection is pretty massive, with many of the Wisconsin offerings that are standard throughout the state and a somewhat extensive craft stock from around the nation.

I checked into this Woodman's for no practical reason but to see if their distribution is any different than the one in Menominee. It appears that it is the same which is no surprise and also not particularly a bad thing. Once again reasonable prices a evident and a broad scope of locally available beers, with only the rare releases for the most part being omitted. While this is an excellent choice for those passing through the area or in the locale in general, the variation of product between this store and the one in Kenosha (different distributor) is not substantial enough to warrant a visit to both stores. So in short, this store is on par with other Woodman's, which is always a good thing.

I frequent this establishment, and love it! They have a lot of great beers that are not always available (might be a bad thing...) I think Woodmans was the first big beer shop I went to and where I picked up my first love (Old Rasputin XII). They have a "build your own 6 pack" but its limited to mostly locals and a lot of the bottles available are out of date.

I do have to say that their beer wall is definitely a sight to be seen ITS MASSIVE!

The service is kind of crappy, but I guess that is because its huge and the people who work there are not really into craft beer so they get annoyed when you ask questions about different beers and quantities. Their pricing is really good for the most part but a few things are marked up a bit more than at other stores in the area.

Overall Woodmans is a great place to check out and the prices are fair. Especially if you're looking for something that is not readily available at liquor stores.

Stopped in here quick today, it is a different format form other Woodman's liquor stores. It is the same size but beer covers the 3 outer walls. On the left it is craft, singles, and Wisconsin brews, the back is import 6 packs and craft samplers, and the right is macros. There was also a mini nook with more macroish miports. All beer in coolers.

The singles selection was the largest of any Woodman's I've been to, some notables were Coton and other Bruery products.

The service is nil like most Woodman's and the quality of the store was top notch. The Quality of the selection is also the best of all the Woodman's.

Its on the southern, southern end of Milwaukee County, not really worth it in place of Discount, but it is a solid store.

I went there again and I noticed they had way more solid imports than I saw last time, even some stuff that discount doesn't have, they also have every macro lager under the sun, but still they can't compete with discount in selection.

I stopped here on the way from Milwaukee to Chicago, very easily accessible from 94, about 2 miles travel. This is a grocery store, a huge one too, with a separate liquor store with the beer.

The beer selection is uncommonly large for a grocery store. Hundreds of beers, from 6-packs to 4-packs to a wide variety of bombers, over 100 beers available in singles too. The selection of WI beers was especially good, with lots of Central Waters, New Glarus, Tyranena, Capitol Brewing, and so on. The Chicago area beers are actually cheaper than I've seen in most places in the city, including FFF and Goose Island, cheaper by roughly $1-2 per 6-pack or bomber.

What else is there to say, if you're driving through Chicago into WI this would be an excellent stop for WI goodness.

This store is in my regular rotation. I usally stop here at least once a week.

The beer selection is absolutely mind blowing. Sixers from every brewery that distributes to Milwaukee. All the locals are well represented. A fairly large single cooler that contains at least a hundred different beers. A moderate supply of american bombers. The opposite side of the american craft is all the foreign offerings. A fantastic array of belgians, english and irish beers. Along with a decent amount of latin and asian beers.

The back wall holds cases of many of the more popular craft brews and slowly melds into BMC that continues all the way back to the front of the store. This place is a BMC lovers wet dream. They have every style, pack, and bottle/can configuration known to man.

The prices rival Discount and sometimes are lower. I've found some great deals here.

Overall a great place to pick up sixers and cases of just about any craft beer. You just have to look for bottle dates since this isn't the type of place that has a quick craft turnover. Since a good amount of craft ages well this can be an advantage at times.
