Average size Whole Foods (ok, larger for California) with about 25 ft of beer. They have it in three different areas so you get the feeling they would have more if they had the space. There is a section for Pliny but like everyone else they are out. Delivery is on Tuesdays (2 bottle limit).

This is a huge store. Jeeze. Anyway, despite the overall size of the store, the beer selection isnít quite as good as some of the other locations. Pretty basic selection of imports, decent amount of local stuff and some of the more popular items from SoCal. They did have bottles of Pliny, other North Bay staples like Lagunitas, Bear Republic, Moylans, etc as well. Not the most amazing beer selection, but pretty respectable.

Stopped in basically because it has a very high score on the RB app for some reason. The store itself is quite nice, but the beer selection is seriously lacking. Not even good for a whole foods. Some locals and a few easy to find Belgian and German beers. Meh.

Opening day, much bigger than WF in san rafael or petaluma, very fancy store, almost on the level of the potrero hill store. in fact, basically the fanciest WF i have seen to date, but not the biggest. awesome attached parking garage, upper level dining area, lots of other trick shit. good beer selection as always, but lots of stuff new to WF in the north bay. carrying multiple selections from valley brew, jolly pumpkin, brew dog, goose island, lost abbey/port, etc. st. b abt 12, rodenbach grand cru, cuvee renee, etc. great prices on RR stuff. a very solid selection and plenty of room, lots of singles, i would expect to see more one offs and seasonal stuff as it progresses. talked to the beer guy, hes into trying things and is seeking out new fun beers for WF to carry. good location, glad it happens to be near my house. *update:* this place has been stepping it up nicely. now carrying 5 selections from hitachino nest, several lost abbey and port brews, 5-6 valley brews, fair selction of belgians, saosons, etc. st. b abt 12 in small and large bottles, nice singles, old raspy 12, and a good bit of other stuff.
