Went to the Bodega with my boyfriend for a bite to eat and a beer. One important thing to note is that they do not actually make their own beer anymore, and if you want any food go in the back to order it.

The atmosphere was pretty good, it was a little loud but everyone was laid back and there was plenty of room to sit at high tops. There was a little area with couches and chairs if you wanted to sit in a more comfortable arrangement.

Their selection was amazing!! 400+ beers in the bottle and I would say 15-20 on tap. They have beer menus that list their bottle selection, listed by beer style, beer name, and brewery which makes it very easy to find what you are looking for!!

The bartender cared about the beer and how it was served, he checked each and every pint glass for water spots and such and the glasses were not chilled which is always nice!

The food was decent, nothing too special but still tasty. We had a pulled pork BBQ sandwich and chips, which came out quickly and satisfied my taste-buds and stomach.

The price was very reasonable for food and drinks!

Very interesting beer bar locating on the corner of two streets in downtown La Crosse, WI. Interesting mix of high tables, couches, as well as the bar itself. Small stage for live music. I did not order food but there were specials posted on the chalkboard above the bar. Nothing crazy special but looks to be good food nonetheless. Love how this place organizes it's beer menu although I wish they would have had a few more copies of it. People at the bar had to keep trading the few copies (binders) available back and forth to figure out what they wanted. Will definitely visit again should I be in the area.

The bodega is great primarily because of their selection, they have everything. there is always a great IPA on tap, and tons of hidden gems in bottles in the behind the bar cabinet. There food is very good, I recommend their pulled pork sliders and pizza. Most beer here is expensive but they have cheap pbr tall boys if you not looking to spend too much. Spin the wheel and win rare bottles from there cabinet selection, I won a 28 dollar bottle last spin I did!

Been here a few times and always enjoyed it. Every time I have been there they have had a New Glarus fruit beer on tap -- really nice to have as an option. Prices have been pretty reasonable. Decent laid back atmosphere.

Lots of bottles to choose from but have generally stuck to one of their 15 taps that have generally been a solid line up.

Recommended for sure.
