Stopped by to pick up some micro-brews that I can't get in Minnesota. The store is located in a rustic building that is really cool inside. Outside the facade looks a bit tacky in comparison. There were several tastings going on and the place was packed at 1:30 on a Saturday afternoon. The selection for micros was good but not great. You can get better selections in the Twin Cities. Of course they have Dogfish Head and New Glarus and I picked up a 4 and 6 pack respectively. Being so crowded I had to wait a bit to check out and didn't get a chance to talk to the staff. Being Wisconsin the prices were lower than what I am use to in Minnesota. A nice place to go if you want the beers you can't get in Minnesota.

Definitely a hidden gem. Looks like just an old building off the side of the highway. Selection was pretty good in my opinion and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Overall I really liked this place and will be coming back to get more WI goodies.

I make the trek from Minnesota about once a month. They have a great selection all around for beer as well as bourbon. The employees have always been very helpful

My new go-to stop for a TON of great beers I can't get in Minnesota. Staff couldn't have been easier to talk to. Very cool place.

They have an awesome selection of craft beer - especially if you live in Minnesota. They also offer 20 growlers on tap. Their selection of imports is also big.

Choices from about 15-20 different growlers fills. They offer a few beer events during the year. Staff was on point steered my to a bunch of bourbon barrel aged beers. Love the huge singles wall.

Great people. They sell growlers of different breweries and that's a big plus. Beer selection needs to grow!
