Just like every other whole foods, so everything is nice and clean and smelling and looking nice. Friendly people. Growler station with 4-6 beers. A smaller store than others and in turn the beer selection is fairly small as well in comparison but still better most other grocery stored. Prices as expected are $1-3 higher than elsewhere.

Stopped by on a whim. Decent, although small selection. Staff was glad to help. Five beers available for growler fills. If you are in the neighborhood it is well worth the time to visit.

Not as good as WF Chandler due to less space and selection. But still has some good beer. They also recently added some taps for growlers as well.

I’ve been to at least a half-dozen Whole Foods in various states at this point, and I give this on extra points for its layout and for how well-organized their stock is. They have sections organized according to RateBeer ratings, limited releases, new Euro imports, and local craft. Very well presented, and a very good selection. My only criticism is true of all WFMs: you will pay more on average for most beers, particularly for the bigger, non-local, limited releases. Bonus points for having a knowledgable and helpful staff on hand.

Showed up when they were offering samples of local brewed beers. Very cool that they are involved in the local beer scene. Their selection is small with a good deal of beer kept cold but other beer left out at room temp. Overall a small selection but some offerings I have not seen anywhere else (eg Rogue Voodoo Doughnut Bacon Maple). Typical Whole Foods with a great food selection and good beer selection for a grocery store. Still the Whole Foods just south on Hwy 101(exit at Ray) is far better.

The beer selection has gotten better over the past few months as the speciality manager has been bringing in new bottles (e.g. O’Dells, Red Hook & New Belgium seasonals) and growlers (San Tan). Talking with him, he told me that he had fifteen more new beers to stock and asked me what I wanted to see. A few weeks later, my request appeared.

I usually do the whole foods, for the foods. I can rely on the place for decent food selection, what I need to carry around (crackers and water) on pubcrawls and breakfeast day-afters, and a place to ear with sterile cuttlery. Some of the whole foods are becoming serious beer store contenders, however not this one. This is a smaller Whole Foods by any consideration. Decent selection if you live nearby and are walking or biking over for a couple beers for supper, hwoever a short drive takes to to far superior selection at Tops or Papago bar/store.

not really sure why this whole foods is on RB. the beer selection is worse than the safeway. if you need lecithin granules then you go here...

Good food. Good choices on beer, but I have tried almost most of them already. Smells like hippies.
