August 2012:

Stopped by here on the way out of town to pick up some New Glarus for a friend. They didn't have Hometown Blonde that a friend wanted, so I went down the street and picked it up at Woodmans. Didn't seem like they had many seasonals. I'd be wary of high reviews from one-day accounts... Obvious shills.

A cool and wacky orange neon vintage sign and large empty parking lot made it hard to miss this store. The east side area was slightly sketchy, but this store seemed ok. Inside it was carpeted and wood paneled, with vintage framed beer-themed decorations up above the door and along the walls.

Counter clerk was friendly and mentioned Madison Craft Beer Week, and allowed us to buy singles instead of a full mixed six.

Selection was good, all the local staples like Ale Asylum, Lake Louie, New Glarus, O'So, Tyranena, and more. Midwest stuff like Founders, Three Floyds, MKE Brewing, Bells, etc. Imports like Chimay, Duchesse, and Rochefort. Weird malt liquors like Axe Head (Black Cherry even). About half the selection of Steve's or Woodmans nearby.

A New Glarus display up front showcased weizen glass flutes, and towards the back were a few other shelves of glasses including Two Hearted pints and Duvel Parra tulips.
Management is receptive to feedback, and will special order if you ask.

Not a major destination, just a convenient alternative to Woodmans on the east side of town.

Trixie's is probably my favorite place for one major reason: They will hold almost any of their beers for 7 days for you. Living in Indiana I get up to Wisconsin once or twice a year and it was amazing that they held an Avery Vanilla Bean stout for me even though they only had a case.

Great selection and outstanding customer service. Any time I stop in, there is always someone there to show me what is new and make recommendations. They are a great source for Toppling Goliath and other favorites in the Madison area.

Awesome service at this place. They put me on a waiting list for K4 FF and had two sixers set aside for me behind the counter. One of these days I'll spring for their orange hoodless sweatshirt.
