This Whole Foods, in and of itself is decent. The bottle selection is rather weak for a Whole Foods, but there have been some things that have caused me to raise my eyebrow.I wouldnít go here with the expectation of being blown away, but you may find a surprise or two, which is always nice. Anyways, if youíre from the West Coast, youíd probaby just gloss over 70% of the shit on the shelves here, but if youíre from the East Coast, youíd be in a safe place to stop here. Again, nothing mind-blowing, but itís good enough.

One of the better Whole Foods Iíve been to. Definitely the best stop for craft beer in the SCV. A little higher in price then bevmo but a much better selection and the employees are far more knowledgeable then that of the braindead at bevmo!

Visited June 2, 2013.

The beer is located on the left side of the store near the back by the wine. Took the scenic route around the store before I found it. Selection isnít bad for a grocery store but for a Whole Foods I found it a bit lackluster. Standard imports like Chimay and Lindemans, some California stuff like Ballast Point, AleSmith, Stone, Bruery, and now Tap It, and some other domestic beers like Goose Island.

This place is right on McBean Parkway which is the same street as Wolf Creek (2.4 miles away), and only a mile and a half from Bevmo. It should be noted that this in Santa Clarita, not Valencia in case you canít find it on a map.

I was staying in nearby Santa Clarita, so when I saw this place was rated so highly, I made it a must-stop. Stopped in to see if there was any Pliny available (there wasnít as they were between batches). There was a guy there stocking the beer shelf, and saw that he was the "Beer Expert" pictured on a nearby wall. We chatted a bit, and he looked up on his phone where I could find Pliny on-tap if at all. Really nice guy. I canít remember his name, so I wonít guess. On to the beer...they carried a really good selection from what I have experienced with this store. Maybe itís because CA just has so much good beer. Lots of my faves that I canít get back home available: Deschutes, Goose Island, Firestone Walker, Port, Lost Abbey, etc. Really great store with competitive prices. If ever in the area again, this will be where I "fill up" for the week.

One of the better Whole Foods in the greater Los Angeles area. Casey is the beer buyer and does a great job. I emailed him a little while back and asked if he had any _______ [limited release beer] in stock. He did, and offered to set 2 bottles aside for me for over a week (no credit card or anything). Wide selection of very good stuff (both Belgian and Californian). Full line ups from Alesmith and Russian River with some Lost Abbey beers as well. A couple things you donít see very often in LA proper: Island Brewing beers and such like that. Ratebeer shelf tags in full force. Everything else about the store is typical Whole Foods. I did also see some decent sake, including a well priced Koshu. All in all a worthy stop if you are in the area.
