There are a lot of people who claim this is the best selection in Madison, but I can't agree. I think Steve's Liquor on Mineral Point is the best, even though the volume of beer is not as impressive as Woodman's.

Woodman's West struggles because 80-90% of the beer is stuff you would never want to drink. They carry just about every brand of macrobrew imaginable, and it occupies most of there shelf space.

There is one long continuous aisle of domestics, but for the most part, many of them are not that impressive. They have stuff like New Glarus, Flying Dog, Summit, and Goose lsland... but in the Midwest, you can get those anywhere.

Their imports are lengthy, but once again, they're not that impressive. They have the traditional Belgian Ales (like Chimay, Youngs, etc.), but the last time I was there, nothing extraordinary.

You can always count on them having an ample supply though, and the beers seem to be kept cold and are rotated regularly. Overally, you probably won't be disappointed, unless you are snobby like me.

While the selection is as good as any big box grocer, it's not necessarily a pleasant place to buy your beer. The liquor section in general is spirit and BMC-centric, and the clientele and employees reflect that. Still, if you're looking for something, anything, that's typical in this distro market, it'll more than likely be available here at a good price.

Woodman's is a huge mega-box store. Just the liquor section is pretty big. Atmosphere and service are commensurate with the big-box store experience. Prices are very reasonable. The selection of midwest regional beers is impressive, and the prices better than about any place else I've seen in the region. The specialty beers selection is modest, and mostly midwest, but not completely. There were definitely some not so easy to get brews, but that is not their schtick. They cover their bases with some of each style, and the standard bearers for foreign countries. But where they are really good is providing quality regional 6 packs at good prices.
