It was difficult to find the liquor dept. at this Woodman's. I'm used to seeing "LIQUOR" somewhere on the triple football field wide concrete fa├žade, and alas there was none. Not even signage inside the store.

Once past the acutely chaotic frenzy of the grocery store, and through separate doors inside the store, wait...there it is, the beer. Taking up a mere fraction of the space alloted to the liquor dept. Coolers start on the far left side and wrap along the center wall. Some nice and obscure Belgians like Bornem & Gouden Carolus, German and Euro singles, nothing too obscure there. Some nice Bells, like Expedition and Double Cream, but not the entire line (no 3rd coast old ale, porter, or rye stout). Dark Horse, Ale Asylum, a few New Glarus, one current Unplugged.

My gripe was that they had less of a selection than Woodman's west (Gammon Rd.), and less space allotted. Much less in the way of limited releases. The beer didn't have a designated aisle or area, instead it was backed against the wall by the wine & liquor. No staff were on the floor either. Coupled with the frantic atmosphere of the store, i'll be shopping elsewhere in the future.

Overall this place is huge. Sort of a "Super- Mega Grocery".
This store is for sure set in Wisconsin. They must have had four or five brands of beef jerky, more sausage than you can count and a great selection of locally produced cheeses. I even got a sort of truck stop vibe near the checkout lines. There are the sort of knicknack things, and that sort of stuff there.
The beer store is pretty much a large bulding in the grocery store. Along the left wall you will start to find beer. They do have a decent selection of imports, all cold. Next you will come to their selection of micros and craft beers, again, a decent selection.
Along the back wall they have more of the locally and regionally produced micro brews, again a decent selection, and again all cold. One thing to remember is that Lake Louie's beers are not available here.

A good way not to look foolish is to know that this place only accepts cash or debit cards. NO CREDIT CARDS!

This is the only Woodman's I have visited up to this point. I have been here twice, but I haven't purchased much here yet. The store itself is fairly impressive with all sorts of meats and cheeses and all kinds of other stuff scattered throughout. The old school shopping carts bring back memories of my childhood riding through the supermarket.

On our first visit we walked around the main part of the store looking for the liquor/beer section for 15 or 20 minutes. If you're reading this BEFORE your visit, you may want to use the doors on the far right of the building to enter, since the liquor/wine/beer section is a separate part of the store that is all the way over on the right.

All of the beer is cold and they have a fairly good selection of beers available. It didn't seem like they had a focus on the more exciting releases, instead they seemed to have mostly the major offerings from many breweries. One of the reasons I haven't really purchased that much here is simply because we are usually traveling and are doing most of our purchases of room temperature beers.

All in all this is an interesting place with an above average beer selection. There are definitely places in Madison with better selections.
