I am a native Iowan living in Madison. Thus, I thoroughly enjoy seeing a fine Iowa establishment making its mark here. Hy-Vee has always been synonymous with quality, in Iowa, but with its newest addition in Wisconsin, it is poised to completely obliterate the market. This goes especially for the beer selection. The Hy-Vee crew has done an exceptional job picking out local favorites and some micros from across the states. I am thoroughly impressed with their eagerness to suggest a favorite or a quality selection.

The recently opened Hy-vee is set to give Woodmans East a run for its money and will also be saving me some trips to Steve's and Riley's. So far, I am impressed. Selection includes at least a beer or two from just about every brewery available in the Madison market, save a few very small Wisconsin craft breweries and some of the more rare imports. The layout is great with most beer nicely stored in coolers. A large walk in to the back of the store houses some bombers and nice Belgian 750s. Staff is very enthusiastic and eager to help and for now, their prices are the best in Madison. I imagine they are artificially low right now to capture market share since they are new but I am happy to take advantage of them while they last. I highly recommend Hy-vee to any Eastsiders and its reasonably close proximity to Hwy 94 (either the 151 or 30 exits) will make it a fine destination for folks traveling through looking for WI beers.

Update: Prices are now on par with other Madison retailers.
