A pretty large Whole Foods. Plenty of parking underneath. Have a BBQ spot inside which is nice. A very large bottle selection, with some stuff that other beergeeks missed (still have sanctification, hoptimum, abyss on shelves among others). They get some pretty good beers, Bruery’s Cuir, Utopias. Tap selection was good and mostly local (Bruery Mischief, Brouwerij West 9 Triple, Mission Shipwreck), with non local taps of Four Wyld Extra Pale Ale ("Organic"...ofcourse), Avery Maharaja and Great Divide Chocolate Yeti. The tasting bar also has wine, and offers charcuterie and cheese plates. They also had an interesting thing that I have never seen before. A little 1 gallon homebrew all grain kit from Brooklyn Brew Shop. The two employees I spoke to in the beer area (one happens to be a friend on BA), were both very knowledgeable. Prices were great on draft beers ($5 a pint for any of the above that I mentioned!). A good Whole Foods stop.
