Time to re-review, it's been 5 years since my first visit.

First couple times I was here, the imports were out of date, and I learned this the hard way. Since then, the overall selection has improved quite a bit, mainly in the US craft area. Full lines from Bells, including Hopslam for 15.99, and a poster on the door even. Basic lines from Founders (no seasonals), FFF (out of all but Dreadnaught), Bridgeport, Lagunitas, Left Hand, Anderson Valley, Big Sky (Cowboy Coffee), Point, Sprecher, some of the more obscure second-tier breweries. All Bells singles were in code, post-batch 10000, save for Bell's Lager from last April. Service was better at the register, they rang up a limited single for the mix-a-six price, and offered a box for the beer. There was a sad shelf of Pizza Beer way back in the corner, if anyone is still jonesing for some. A pretty solid option in the immediate area, though Binnys Algonquin is the behemoth further north up Randall Rd.

I've been to this Woodman's twice, and the level of quality compared to other locations in WI is a bit lower. On both occasions, a few import singles purchased were noticeably old with stale off flavors...leading one to believe that their stock was not regularly rotated. My advice would be to be choosy with what you find here, and check for signs of age/oxidation (depending on what you buy). Service on the floor was nonexistent.

In term of selection, they had several euro imports i hadn't seen around Chicago, like Weltenburger Weissbier and Dunkel. Prices were reasonable, and the overall selection was decent. A few gems to find, but in a league far behind Binny's and other NW suburban shops.
