    Got a buddy who lives in Racine WI. He can go north or south to MKE or Kenosha. Where are good places to find Bells, New Glarus, Three Flyod's, and Goose Island variants. He is getting into craft an wants to pick up some stuff that will keep. Make an annual trip in Aug so he is gonna be a good friend and stock pile a few for his buddy

    Timers in Racine, Tenuta's in Kenosha. Between the two you can find a ton of beers. The guys at three cellars are pretty cool too. They just don't seem to get as much as the first two.
     
  6. Timers in Racine is worth the trip. Good selection. Also you can refill your growler.

    +100 to Timers. Great selection, friendly people. Usually give you 5% off a case if you ask.

    Or if he really wants to get into it, have him take the half hour drive up to Discount Liquour on Oklahoma in Milwaukee. They have a huge beer list and get all the limiteds.
     
  10. Timers had to stop doing the growler fills a few weeks ago, apparently it is illegal to do growlers at a liquor store. But if in Racine I highly recommend Timers, the group there are great. As well you can travel north to Discount or Three Cellars in Milwaukee.

    Woodmans in Oak Creek is really good. The Kenosha woodmans really sucks compared to Oak Creek. I come from Lake Geneva, take hwy 50 right past Kenosha Woodmans and head north another 20 minutes to the Oak Creek location. For example, I knew the Oak Creek location had some FFF Dreadnaught that I needed to get for a trade and called Kenosha and the lady is like we dont have any FFF product at all right now. I get to Oak Creek and they have Dreadnaught, Moloko, Artic Panzer, and a bunch other FFF. Just dont understand the vast difference in supply between the locations.
