Living in and around the Madison area for the last 5 or so years, I've started taking this place for granted. Even with the new gigantic liquor section. But make no mistake, this is the place to go for amazing variety in Madison.

They have just an amazing selection here and it's laid out very well. You've got your domestic macros, followed by huge assortment of domestic micro/craft beers. Then a little section devoted to building your own 6-pack, which is directly over the larger singles section. Then at the end, a good selection of Wisconsin craft/micro's. Then you're while your thinking "that was really awesome, time to check out" you walk down the other side, and they have a load of craft imports on that side.

Fantastic store for beer lovers, I always feel a bit like the kid in the candy store. I don't think I've ever made it in and out in under 20 minutes. I just browse and browse, and change my mind, and go back and forth.

But as previous reviewers have stated, they don't have Lake Louie, which is a curious omission, and I have never been asked if I needed help, or even seen an employee over in the beer area. Also, the lines sometimes get crazy long, and they don't call for backup, so if you're getting a big haul, just grab a cart, so you don't have to hold cold beer for 20 minutes.

But these are small issues really, when what I come for is the beer, and they have it like no other place in Madison!

Cheers!

By far the best beer store on my trip to Wisconsin. The selection is mindblowing and the prices are rock bottom. Blow out cases of beer for those of you that want to drink cheap or bring back something for your non-craft friends. I bought a 24 pack of IPA's by Minhas for $4.99. They had at least 3 other beers there in cases for that price, and six packs were $2. Turned out to be a crap beer, but at least I didn't waste a ton of money.

Prices on New Glarus are the cheapest I found on my journey of about six different towns, weighing in at $9.79 for 4 packs ($9.50 if you buy more than 4), $10.49 for Fruits, and $7.49 for year round six packs. I spent the majority of my beer money there, and do not regret it. I almost bought more than I had budgeted for, believe me it's easy.

Service is not really great, I mean, nobody really knows much there. But if you are handy with looking up reviews and like to be left alone while you beer shop, that's the best place to be. Self-checkouts are nice but the scale can be a PITA.

Lots of reasons to come here and shop.

While the selection is as good as any big box grocer, it's not necessarily a pleasant place to buy your beer. The liquor section in general is spirit and BMC-centric, and the clientele and employees reflect that. Still, if you're looking for something, anything, that's typical in this distro market, it'll more than likely be available here at a good price.

Large supermarket with a huge liquor store section. Very long aisle of beer with lots of singles - some cold some not. Good selection of local craft and limited releases.
