Sendik's is a very good beer store (they sell great food, wine and liquor too). They don't have the largest selection around but what they sell is usually fresh and priced very competitively. You'll find a great selection of Wisconsin micro's, a decent selection of regional beers (Founders, Bell's, Great Lakes, Goose Island, etc.) and some of the more popular national micro's like Stone, Dogfish, North Coast, Southern Tier, Ommegang, Rogue and others. Germans and Belgiums are represented too. They always have a knowledgeable person working in the department if you need help.

Being a specialty grocery store in a general sense, I knew already they had a stellar wine selection, but I was looking for beer.

They had a decent variety of local offerings, a small section of belgains, and mostly midwest area like founders, 3 floyds, etc.

Most of it was on shelves surrounding the wine area. There were a bunch of New Glarus and BMC stuff in the coolers.
Overall a decent place to go just to grab something.
Unfortunately, some of the stuff on the shelves looked really old; at least they were discounting it.

This was stop #1 of my beerfly expedition to Brookfield:

Last week I decided to get out for a while after work so I planned this huge beerfly review day to Brookfield/ Elm Grove. The first stop was supposed to be Brew City Supply on Lisbon but on my way by the location there was a large sign up saying it would soon be a Discount Liquor. Cool.

That bumped this Sendik's to stop numero uno. Never been to this location in the relatively new strip mall. Once inside, the beer was immediately to the left with a wall of bombers, singles, and six-packs. The whole liquor section had an old, mansion library feel to it. Dark wood, tall ceilings, and an overall classy feel. All the beer was safe from the damaging rays of the sun.

Further around the corner were coolers that held more beer and a DFH wood-constructed end cap to an isle. Trappists, Mikkeller, Chimay glass-in packs, Hitachino Nest, DFH high gravity beers (120 IPA was $8), Unibroue, Samichlaus, Potosi, lots of Three Floyds bombers I haven't seen else where, and Rogue to name quite a few. No singles (build-your-own 6-pack) though. A nice touch to the selection is the Sendik's classic magazine rack that contains a few different Beer magazines.

I didn't run into anyone working there so no help was offered my way but I was given a friendly remark on my way out. The quality seemed pretty good across the board since there was no direct sunlight and it was at a reasonable temperature there. Although I saw bombers of Fantabulous Resplendence which, to my knowledge, hasn't been made in quite a while. That gave me a little worry to their rotation/selling of craft beer.

The prices were pretty standard but nothing will necessarily draw me back to this location since its out of the way save for a few bombers I haven't seen anywhere else. Solid store for locals though!
