My 200th rating is a new classic stop for last minute beer procurement on the west side. Selection is great. I love the little bar area though Iíve never sat there. People crowd in and it feels very neighborhoody.

Just off of/on? PCH in Venice. Plenty of parking, which is sort of a big deal for Los Angeles.

Apparently the tasting beer here is kind of new. They still have a pretty good cooler selection with beers from all over Southern California as well as some Belgian, German, and Asian imports. A few nice special releases from Avery, Allagash, and Firestone out on the shelves. Tasting bar had a heavy Colorado during my visit, apparently they had a tap takeover a couple days prior.

Pretty typical pricing on the flights and bottles, though maybe a bit on the high side...but itís Whole Foods. Service was good. And overall, itís a good spot to grab a beer in a place where there isnít a ton around.

Stopped in here several times, and found it a welcome beer oasis during a week of too much driving between apartments and not enough time for meals out. When you need to grab some stuff, you could do a helluva lot worse than this one. Vast and spacious branch in general, theyíve given a nice bit of space over for the beer section. Excellent and helpful staff, enjoyed my chats, and they really went out of their way on my behalf. Checking back stock, giving pointers, the works. US and Euro craft well represented. Picked up several Cali bombers and a fo-pack of Maui Coconut Porter. Worth a stop.

Worth a visit if youíre driving down Venice Blvd. I believe this location gets some primo beers, though I was unable to leave with anything due to timing of my visit. Enjoyed talking with one of their beverage guys about lots of different beers. He got me some Pliny and Abyss and was happy to ask the head beer buyer about the laundry list of things I wanted. Service was good in the end, but required me finding someone to ask my questions. On shelf selection was very good. A wide variety of brews, most of which are fridge temperature. Better than any surrounding Whole Foods I visited in the area.

One of the better Whole Foods in the area in terms of selection, plus they have a few taps that normally have pretty good brews. Normally have a couple sours with Duchesse almost always available.

They have expanded the bar to 24 taps, all very good selections, when I was there they had DFH 120 min, and a lot of locals. Bottle selection still solid.
