The second store I have been to from this up market chain and again I am very impressed with what I saw, so much so I revisited three days later for more beers. A fantastic selection of beers, well laid out and all good quality stuff. Jimmy is the beer man at this store and he loves his job, check out Jimmyís Bomber Barge for his special selection. I did not need any help, so after enquiring if I needed assistance he just left me alone to stare at his beer display and chose a couple of bottles. The little bar area called the Hanger Bar is a great place to pass an hour or two while the world shops around you, some interesting taps too, 18 in total although only 14 were in use on my visits. Cask beer available on íFirkin Fridayí but not on my midweek trips.

Huge Whole Foods in Orange County. Produce and fish counter are better than many of the others in the area. Decent wine selection. Good beer selection, although I wish they had more cold shelves. A few locals on tap as well. Not really a place to travel out of your way, but a pretty good whole foods.

Stopped in with kentuckyfriedchickencantsail January 2011.
While they dont have the largest beer selection in the world the have some quality beer as well as some obscure ticks. I saw a couple beers that arent available anywhere else anymore. They also have a large selection of cheap beer for a buck a piece including a good portion of the bottom 100 for the die hard tickers.
Didnt interact with the help much but someone did come up to me promptly and ask if I needed help.
I guess there are some taps but I didnt pay attention.
Good place, will return.

I had heard this was a great place to pick up bottles, so I decided to drive the rest of the way down yesterday after I went to drop some stuff off with my girlfriend in Fullerton.
Only a few moments after arriving in the beer aisle, Chris came over to ask if I had any questions and if I was looking for anything in particular. He let me know he had some other stuff in the back and ran through a pretty impressive list. Amazing service and very friendly guy. Definitely talk to him if youíre there and even thinking about beer.
The selection was quite good, I ended up walking out with a HotD Blue Dot, HotD Adam, Lagunitas 13th, and a Duchesse De Bourgogne, but there were plenty of other beers I cold have picked up. Plenty of Blind Pig and Pliny, and apparently a decent stock of Consecration kept in the back. Lots of Lost Abbey, Stone, Lagunitas, Moylans, HotD, and many more from CA breweries. A good selection of Belgians too, Rochefort, Chimay, Achel, and a bunch of others that I canít remember off-hand.
Prices are what you would expect to find anywhere, so I have no complaints there.

Iím not as enamored with Whole Foods as the rest of Southern California, perhaps because I had a slew of them near be when I lived in the bay area. For whatever reason, this location is the best one Iíve come across.
A lot of the things that I canít get at Hi-Time are still around here. I guess maybe they have more purchasing power.
Also, the beer buyer is very knowledgeable and seems to be around every day. Wish I could remember his name. Iíll fill it in later.

What more do you need to know? This is a Whole Foods that has lots of beer. The best part is that they have beer on tap for enjoyment with barbeque. Also, the selections of local beers and Belgians is pretty darn decent. I donít remember buying anything here, as they had slightly higher prices than the nearby Total Wine. But, still itís Whole Foods.

Dropped by and was surprised of the collection. Lotís of gems from Europe as well as Canada and US. Picked up some Stone brews like Double Bastard. There was a wine bar inside. Canít say about service as I didnít talk to anyone, except the cashier who seemed to dig belgian beers!

This is a brand new market of this chain. Itís street address doesnít show up oon a lot of the mapping sites, but itís on the corner of Jamboree and Barrance, on what used to be the Marine Helicopter Base.
Great bottle selections of micros and Belgians, along with a few on tap. Right now St. Bernardus Abt 12 is on tap...
This supermarket has lots of places inside that prepare food, so you can eat, have one on draft and take some home.
