This is a solid store. I have nothing to compare it to for the region, but it served my needs well (I didn't have near enough $ for the amount of beer I wanted to purchase).
Several beers from Founders (but no Breakfast Stout), some from New Holland, very good selection of the better Wisconsin breweries, Ommegang brews and a fairly small, but interesting import selection.
Staff was friendly and helpful, but not necessarily highly versed in beer knowledged. They even had a couple of beeradvocate shelf talkers up.
Solid store.

So, first stop on a business trip with lots of stops. Researched the area, this store had a pretty good score, so I find a little store in a strip mall, pretty plain looking. Inside, First thing I see is a New Glarus Rasberry Tart/Belgian Red gift box with two flutes, at $25 a little pricy, but almost. Also, a few other gift/combo boxes up there. In back, the beer was in good order, and for the size of the store, a pretty darn good selection (about a 4.25 worth).

A few of the expensive 4packs (ie Founders Impy Stout, Fds Devil Danceer, NG Enigma) were broke up into singles, which I took advantage of. Otherwise a good spread of locals (NG, Sprecher, Capital, Tyranena, etc) with a good craft rep (Fdrs, Bells, Goose Island, a few Lagunitas, Rogue and Bear Rep.) I found it to be a little pricy, ie, NG Ras I bought at $9 when it goes for at least a buck cheaper elsewhere. A few others were a little overpriced, like the $5 single of Fdrs Impy Stout, but otherwise fair prices for the rest.

Talked to the manager for a bit, seemed knowledgable and wanting to expand the craft section. Overall, some stuff you can't get at the Woodmans across town, so go there for price perhaps, but go here for the good stuff.

Overall take from the place: NG Ras Tart and Enigma, Bear Rep. Rod Rod Rye & Big Bear Black Stout, Lagunitas Freak Out, Flying Dog Impy Porter, Founders Devil Dancer, Tyranena Brewers Gone Wild, and Dark Horse Scotty Karate at $38.96.

Stopped in tonight, specifically looking for one thing. Admittedly, I'd been told it was there so it was not a big surprise when I found it. I also stumbled upon another beer I'd been looking for and hadn't seen locally so THAT was a nice surprise.

It's something of a pain to get to the store, unless you're in DePere anyway. However, once you get there, you'll be surprised by what's inside. You wouldn't expect it from what you see outside.

They've got a relatively decent selection of craft beers, regionals and micros. There looks to be a decent selection of wine and liquor as well but, in all honesty, I wasn't paying attention since I was on a mission.

Prices were about right....some high, some low, but most were failry right on. I wasn't in there long enough for anyone to check with me to see if I needed any help, but then again, I didn't ask for any help either.

It's a good drive for me to get there so I'm not likely to make another special trip but if I find myself nearby I'm sure I'll check them out again in the future.
