As a beer store, THE BEST! From New Glarus, Black Husky, Valkyrie, 3 Sheeps, to Surly, Founders and more they have it all.

As an Italian Marcato, better than any in Chicago!

how these guys get so much beer into such a small space is hard to believe but there is literally tons of beer. The guys at the store were very knowledgeable and had some beers set aside for me since I was coming from out of town. Cleaned off one of the shelves and they even had more beer Somewhere else to restock which I which is hard to believe. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to stock up on Wisconsin beers. Btw. Great selection of new glarus products

A beer mecca for anyone even close to the Chicago area or in SE Wisconsin. The food alone makes this place worth a visit (authentic Italian creations, with a little bit of Wisconsin-area twists <<think head cheese and cheese curds alongside fresh mozzarella).

If you are debating Woodson's versus here, they carry <craftwise> everything Woodson's will have - they will be close on pricing, and the selection/allocation/hidden gems will make the tiny bit extra worth it (Woodon's brat and cheese selection was pretty intense however). I bought close to $225 worth here in one visit.

I relocated to SE Wisconsin two months ago from the south, and Tenuta's has been by far my new go-to beer shop in the area. Kyle, the manager, is one of the most sincere and helpful beer folks I've ever come across to boot, which makes shopping there easier. There's a lot of beer here in WI I've yet to have, and he's always got great suggestions.

While a Woodman's will have more bulk, and other area beer shops might get an occasional 3 Sheeps or something that Tenuta's won't, there's no question this place has the deepest and most well-stocked options. There's beer at Tenuta's that I've never seen before. And it's the largest independent beer selection I've encountered yet in the area (stress on the word "independent").

I'll be going here for years to come, stocking my house full of delicious beer and their awesome food. You have to go.

My wife and I go to Tenuta's quite often since we live about twenty minutes away. We spend about thirty dollars there every time we go but it is so well worth it. The staff is very friendly and if you want to try a taste of something they will let you. We will def keep going as much as we can.

This is my first time posting on BA and I felt obligated because I travel for a living and use BA to find local beers all the time. BA led me to Tenuta's and I was so pleased with the outcome that I will begin passing on my experiences with everyone else. I'm from Cali and cannot get New Glarus. After I called Tenuta's and talked to Kyle, he said no prob, we have ton's. After I got there, I was a kid in a candy store. the isle of beer is so long it almost goes to a vanishing point. Kyle came out and hooked me up! after BS'ing craft beer for awhile, he helped me decide which New Glarus would be the best to pack back to Cali, hooked me up with a 4-pack of the wild sour ale (his own stash from the back), and took my info for shipping the New Glarus special sours later down the road. the trip was very successful and they also had a ton of selections from all over. Thanks Tenuta's and BA!

I'll start off by saying that Tenuta's is my local favorite store. The deli is fantastic, the beer is fantastic, being close to home is just a bonus!

The beer manger is a great guy who knows his customers and is nearly always ready and willing to find something, answer questions, or just shoot the breeze about beers.

The beer selection is enough for me to keep going back, but you have got to see the world selection of wines and cheeses, the deli is nothing short of authentic Italian and amazing. Oh, and make your way to the back right corner of the store to see the wall of Olive Oil...What else says Italian like hundreds of bottles of Olive oil?

Outstanding selection, fair prices, good place. Bottom line.

This is a family business and you can feel the warmth and soul of the place.

One visit and you'll be a fan.
