I enjoy visiting this liquor store whenever I visit Madison. It keeps an outstanding selection of Wisconsin brews, with enough numbers that you can often find some of the seasonal releases a few months after they're over because the store stocked so many.

They also keep a separate cooler of singles that is a great mix of Wisconsin and out-of-state choices.

The staff is generally helpful and will look for whatever special requests you need.

The prices are a tad higher than at Woodman's, but given Riley's central location right down on State Street, and that it has its own parking, it's worth a visit.

Overcharged me for a clearance item. Rude employees. Not very big selection. Lots of old beer. Not impressed with this store. Can't believe that people actually shop here. Avoid.
