quality: 4 | service: 3 | selection: 4.5 | $$

Living in and around the Madison area for the last 5 or so years, I've started taking this place for granted. Even with the new gigantic liquor section. But make no mistake, this is the place to go for amazing variety in Madison.

They have just an amazing selection here and it's laid out very well. You've got your domestic macros, followed by huge assortment of domestic micro/craft beers. Then a little section devoted to building your own 6-pack, which is directly over the larger singles section. Then at the end, a good selection of Wisconsin craft/micro's. Then you're while your thinking "that was really awesome, time to check out" you walk down the other side, and they have a load of craft imports on that side.

Fantastic store for beer lovers, I always feel a bit like the kid in the candy store. I don't think I've ever made it in and out in under 20 minutes. I just browse and browse, and change my mind, and go back and forth.

But as previous reviewers have stated, they don't have Lake Louie, which is a curious omission, and I have never been asked if I needed help, or even seen an employee over in the beer area. Also, the lines sometimes get crazy long, and they don't call for backup, so if you're getting a big haul, just grab a cart, so you don't have to hold cold beer for 20 minutes.

But these are small issues really, when what I come for is the beer, and they have it like no other place in Madison!

Cheers!

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.
