I waited here in line for my Great Taste tickets. So I spent at least an hour and a half looking at the outside of this building before I started shopping. They have a nice parking lot, the grass seems well taken care of, and they even had a picnic table and chairs on the side (probably for smoking employees).
Eventually I got inside where it was warm.
The local selection is great. All of their products are kept cold. You could buy beers by the six pack and they had a single's wall that was deep inside a walk-in cooler.
I found some Unibroue 2004 in the singles wall. Steve's was out of the New Glarus unplugged line, but they seem to have had all of the other New Glarus products. They also had some Founder's Breakfast Stout which I haven't seen anywhere else.
The service was more than helpful, and a pleasure to be around. I'm sure I'll stop here again, mostly because of it's convienence, but also because of it's selection and service.

Well, there hasn't been a review of Steve's for almost a year now, so I'm happy to give it some fresh props.
Emily and I made our way out to Steve's in hopes for some off the wall stuff (actually, I was thinking they may have some Blushing Monk left, but no luck). They had a really nice selection of singles both in 12 oz. and larger format bottles. The cooler is stocked with all sorts of beer, with a great selection of all these fine Wisconsin beers that aren't available anywhere else.
I ended up scoring a couple bottles of Pannepot 2010, and some Lagunitas Sumpin Wild, which I was surprised to see still on the shelves, I thought this went quickly. A great lil store, well worth the effort to make it out from downtown.

Passing through Madison onto Darkness and we had to stop at one of the highest rated beer stores along the way. Its a decent place, worth stopping by if you are close but not a destination place at all. The quality of the beers is average, not a ton of super high quality beers or internationals but most of the better local brands. The selection is heavily biased toward local offerings Central Waters, NG, etc. They have several of each which is great for someone driving though to get locals you can't get out of state. As an added bonus they offer tons of single's of most of the local beers, so for the ticker like me its decent. The prices are super cheap as well so that's welcome as well.
Stop by for cheap locals but don't go out of your way.
