Visited June 9, 2013.
On El Camino right across the street from Artisan Wine Depot. Beer selection isnít bad at all. All the California staples like Green Flash, Speakeasy, Ballast Point, and Lost Abbey but also some Italian and Japanese imports and some Deschutes. Park here, check out the beer selection, and then go across the street and check out Artisan as well. They also have a section for Sake and for Kombucha if youíre interested. Bumped in to the "beer specialist" and he was friendly and made a couple of suggestions.

Not quite as good as the Cupertino store IMO, but still a decent place to find good beer. Selection varies, but there are usually a ton of 99ís and 100ís on the shelves.

This place is pretty solid for a Whole Foods, even if it still hasnít come near the NYC location that had Melange #3 ON TAP. Ramon, the beer buyer, is a good guy who is into the local BA scene. Very knowledgeable and helpful as far as beer goes, and he has definitely improved the beer selection here. They now sell many bottles in singles and have been getting more and more fairly rare stuff in. Prices are good and they sometimes have great sales. Firestone 13 for $20, Black Xantus for $8, fairly fresh Pliny for under $4. Awesome. Other than the beer aisle, this is your typical yuppie haven like every other Whole Foods, but if youíre from around the area, this should definitely be on your short list of beer stops.
