This isn't a beer store so much as a grocery store that happens to have some great beer selection. There is a great selection of Wisconsin beers such as New Glarus, Tyranena, Ale Asylum, Sprecher and Central Waters along with many good beers from outside the Wisconsin area including some nice Belgian imports (though not many). This is a great place for those that are traveling as the access from the interstate is easy. The service is sometimes hit and miss. The store is a grocery store after all, but the liqour manager Scott is somewhat knowledgable. The overall selection is great with the only thing comparable in the area being Tenuta's. They do get a good selection of limited release beers as well but with the amount of traffic they get are quickly gone, usually within a day or two. The pricing is fair and the majority of the prices are very competitive. Overall i would recommend Woodman's as a place to check out whenever you are in the area. There is also a great beer bar right up the frontage road called Uncle Mike's which I highly recommend.

Guess why I go here ?
This is the easiest place for Chicagoans to go and cop New Glarus. Because they have the good sense not to deal with the Illinois ABC and their laws that favor distributors to the point of exploiting brewers, New Glarus does not distribute in Illinois. Since this store is right across the border in Kenosha, people living under the state of Illinois find great relish in coming up here. I am proud to be one... probably twice a year.

In addition to it being a huge grocery store for struggling families to stock up, Woodman's also is a good value for beer with a great selection of Wisconsin and Midwest beers that also includes as good a selection of imports as you can find in Chicago. It is mostly self-service. But if you know what you are looking for, go there.

As a card carrying FIB, it's about time to rate FIBman's. This is the New Glarus beer mecca for Illinois residents. I cannot even imagine the volume of New Glarus they must go through but I imagine a decent percentage of it is from Illinois residents. I try to help out anyway. So yes, tons of New Glarus here and at the best price one is likely to find so a great destination just for NG beers alone. But a lot of other great beers can be found here too (e.g., Weyerbacher & Epic Brewing). Plus prices are usually at the lower end of the spectrum here so win-win in many cases. They do give a volume discount when one purchases a case or more (used to be 10% I thought but seems to be 5% now). Some limited beers are on display behind the main register. These are usually 1 per customer. Yeah the vibe sucks but it's a grocery store! Do some shopping after hitting the beer section. A visit to Woodman's is a must when driving through Kenosha.

Made the hour trip up from Chicago to grab some New Glarus. Solid selection of New Glarus and a plenty of other Wisconsin breweries, and a decent selection of other regional and national brands. I was surprised that they didn't have a large selection of bombers (or maybe I missed them). I was going to grab some Surly as well, but can dates on the Surly were over 5 months old, so I passed and had didn't buy anything that didn't have a bottle/can date just in case. I will say that Wisconsin has crazy low prices on craft beer, with lots of sixers at $7.99 and hardly any over $9.99. In Michigan, $9.99 seems to be the entry level, and plenty of brewers are hitting the $11.99 price point for even basic offerings

A great source for New Glarus releases just over the IL border. Other WI only beers as well. Oddly no credit cards are accepted, so plan accordingly.

Excellent selection, better than most places I've been, and the build-your-own helps a lot out when trying new things.

Good selection of beers. Some beers that you can't get in IL. No credit cards are accepted here. Grocery store is great too. Huge selection and good prices.
