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.
