Visited this beer mecca right before closing time on Saturday night with my brother-in-law. There is even a special entrance for just the liquor department, so one can avoid the average shopper. Plenty of WI breweries are available, that are not carried in Illinois.
Great selection in the cooler (Oso's, Ale Asylum, Central Waters, New Glarus, Milwaukee Ale House, Capital, just to name a few WI breweries) and the service was very friendly. There are of course other craft breweries from around the USA represented, plus your basic American macros and some imports. The beer is cheaper than when I usually buy it Illinois, perhaps cost of living and taxes.
I will most definitely be returning to stock up on all the Wisconsin beers and try other breweries.

The liquor department is just smaller than a Binny's store. It has a great selection of beers. Mostly Wisconsin and local breweries, but there are a few others too.
The prices cannot be beat. If you live in Chicago and want to get away for an afternoon go here to pick up New Glarus beers. It's not a tourist place like Mars and less expensive.

I didn't shop in the grocery store / food section, so I'm just reviewing the liquor store section (which is totally separate).
First of all: no credit cards. Debit or cash only, so just be prepared. There weren't many employees helping customers out (which was fine with me), but the couple people talked to were very friendly.
Being from Illinois, there are a lot of breweries we don't get that are distributed in Wisconsin and Woodman's is my go to place to get them. They have literally every seasonal New Glarus product in stock, including the Thumbprint, larger format (Raspberry Tart, Serendipity, etc), and I even found their special 20th Anniversary Beer here, which really made me happy.
If you don't know exactly what you want, they have a huge "mix a 6 pack" section for around $10. All in all, the prices were very good too. I took a quick peek at the liquor section and they had a good mix of just about everything you could want, but nothing too crazy.
All in all, a great place to grab all of your Wisconsin brews in one place for a reasonable price.

A - Is like a standard liquor store but much bigger. They do have the craft beer and the import sections completly seperated which is odd.
Q - Is great they have all the great craft line up plus they can satify your New Glarus fix with no problem
S - I've never really asked for help but there are people everywhere and I would assume they would have no problem helping anyone
Sel - Very big most is stored in the refrigerators on the outer edge of the store and they also have build your own six packs.
V - Is great and I even found Founders Breakfast Stout at the end of the year last year on sale for $8.99

This isn't a beer store so much as a grocery store that happens to have some great beer selection. There is a great selection of Wisconsin beers such as New Glarus, Tyranena, Ale Asylum, Sprecher and Central Waters along with many good beers from outside the Wisconsin area including some nice Belgian imports (though not many). This is a great place for those that are traveling as the access from the interstate is easy. The service is sometimes hit and miss. The store is a grocery store after all, but the liqour manager Scott is somewhat knowledgable. The overall selection is great with the only thing comparable in the area being Tenuta's. They do get a good selection of limited release beers as well but with the amount of traffic they get are quickly gone, usually within a day or two. The pricing is fair and the majority of the prices are very competitive. Overall i would recommend Woodman's as a place to check out whenever you are in the area. There is also a great beer bar right up the frontage road called Uncle Mike's which I highly recommend.

A-Liquor store within a grocery store. I don't know how I would really describe this better
Q-Very high qualty selection. Literally 5 miles outside Illinois so it is a good stop for any Chicagoan going in or out of wisconsin.
S-Never talked to anyone here. I will knock it down a notch because they DO NOT TAKE CREDIT CARDS! be aware. I don't use debit or cash so it took some extra time for me to figure this out
S-Most of what wisonsin has to offer
V-very good prices on everything. Cannot complain about this one bit
