Flagship Whole Foods store in Austin. Huge place, kind of tough to navigate the parking lot. Staff was friendly but didnít know much. Solid selection but most of it is in a cooler, which I didnít need because I was traveling with it. Prices for beer were fair but everything else is overpriced. I guess itís worth a stop for bottles but Iíd rather go to Whip In if possible.

This is a pretty good spot, and itís nice that they have a walk in cooler in the middle of the room. The selection is ok, mostly 6 packs, handful of bombers. I donít know, there are a lot better whole foods than this one, and I donít want to drink a pint sitting in the middle of a grocery store. I donít get the feeling there is anything better downtown though.

The Flagship Whole Foods location which features a huge store and parking garage so finding a place to park is not difficult, which is nice since there is very little parking in Downtown Austin. A great selection of beers, as with most Whole Foods. Also has a bar with a nice tap selection.

We visited the place where it all started (or at least the current location near where it all started) today. This place has a nice bar (only 6 beers on tap when I visited, not the 8 listed in the description), and a really nice selection of bottles in the walk-in fridge area. It was a pretty cool set-up, and we enjoyed a beer from the tap while we perused the selection in the fridge. If I lived near by Iíd definitely be back here for the some combination shopping and drinking.

The Lamar WFM store, and the new "Bar Lamar" are amazing values. The Bar is an incredible place to have happy hour, as you can go into the substantial beer cooler, bring it over to the bar and pay grocery store prices for bar drinking. The selection in the beer cooler is substantial, probably as large as any place in Austin. Their biggest constraint is distribution in TX, moreso than space or will. Check out the huge selection of singles and bombers.

Was quite impressed for a grocery store to have a beer cooler with sliding doors and have a pretty darn good selection in both bombers and a lot in singles. Not being able to compare to other places in Austin as I was there on business I was able to pick up some stuff not available in my area. Always had decent service but as previously mentioned the food prices are a bit steep.

Went downtown for the evening and decided I had to check out WHOLE PAYCHECK for the beer-The majority of the brews are kept inside a beer cave with swinging doors- itís not as cold as you think in there, trust me, I was fine in shorts and a shirt. A few items that I canít find around town are here, and the prices are at or slightly below the competition around town. Food- well, it is a high end grocery store, so be prepared to pay up sucker if you want to pair beer with something. Staff- friendly, but has the hidden condescending attitude that itís patrons match up so well with. Summary- I really wanted to tear this place apart even before I set foot in it, but, I canít now. The prices are good on the beer, they do have a few items I canít get anywhere else, and pairing combinations are available-at a price. To borrow a line from Kevin Smith: This place wouldnít be too bad if it werenít for the frigging people that shop there...

The Downtown Whole Foods is a great place to get beer in Austin. A good selection, but not everything available in town can be found here. One great thing about it though is that anything can be purchased as a single. There is usually somebody around to help with questions and they seem to be somewhat knowledgable too. Fantastic selection considering itís mainly a high end grocery store. Most of the beer is kept in a walk in cooler too, so itís slightly chilled when you get it.

This location is much better than the North Austin one! Knowledgeable staff and a pretty good beer selection and decent priced too. The walk-in/walk-through beer cooler is awesome. It is great to have a store where you can walk in - get good beer and then some great food to pair it with. And, it is all under one roof.

Another great WFM. Walk-in beer cooler with a good amount of variety. Well organized. HUGE glassware selection. Friendly knowledgeable staff and always a wonderful place to grab a bite.
