This Whole Foods is better than the P Street one because they sell single small bottles upstairs. They also rotate their draft more for the growler station. They don’t have as big of a bottle selection as that one, overall, however. So it’s a give or take, I guess.

Decent two floor Whole Foods, most of the grocery stuff downstairs with hot food bar upstairs it looked like. One cooler of 4-6 packs downstairs by the wine. Mostly common stuff. Didn’t realize there was a separate section of bottles upstairs so I didn’t check that out. No more than a convenient minute walk from Foggy Bottom Metro. I’d stick to the P Street location unless you happen to be in Foggy Bottom for some reason, not really worth going out of your way.

Huge Whole Foods, two levels, definite city vibe. Easy parking in a garage downstairs. The place was packed at 10PM on a weeknight (though heading into a holiday weekend). Downstairs the beer selection is pretty mundane. Upstairs is the rarer stuff... local, seasonals, draft. Decent draft options, but they were out of a couple things. Good local selection, some singles but they seemed a little haphazard. Nothing particularly unusual. Prices a tad bit high even for a Whole Foods.

The section at this Whole Foods is not the best in the DC area, but they did have a nice selection including some items that I, as a Pennsylvanian subject to medieval beer laws, found unique. The had NEw Belgium offerings in cans, including the new (to me) Shift PAle Ale. They also carried a new DC brewer, DC Brau, who just started offering beer in cans a month ago. I picked up a specialty porter (in a bomber) and cans of The Public Pale ale from this brewer. I agree with the comment below that the store has one of THE MOST IDIOTIC layouts I have ever seen -- the beer offerings are located apart on 2 different locations on 2 separate floors, with the upper floor having a seperate beer cooler right by the checkout lane so that it is next to impossible to look at these offerings without being in the way of folks standing in line to checkout.

Very compact WF in the middle of the GW campus. Upstairs is just take away stuff and impulse buys, the real stuff is downstairs. They have a hi tech way of handling the lines at the registers. Beer selection is solid, and different from other Whole Foods in the area.

The new Whole Foods in DC- modeled after the two story underground WFM you’ll find in Union Square NYC. Beer selection is a little annoying. Downstairs is where most of the beer is, but the size of the selection is pretty small. I did find things like new DFH 750mL releases, Dupont ciders, Flying Dog In de Wildeman, singles of weird stuff I’d never heard of. Prices are a little steep. About $4.99 for a single can of Ten Fidy and $12 for Stillwater Cellar Door 750. But then as you check out upstairs there is a bit more beer but it is not duplicated so there are more six packs up there absent from downstairs. You can also find the WFM exclusive beers that someone contract brews for them, though I’d recommend against them. They have very tacky labels that look like direct copies off the fake beers people drink in TV shows and movies.
