Great selection of local brews and imports. 5-6 shelfrows of large bottles where half or so are in the fridge. Good value for money.

Great beer selection, especially for a grocery store. Tons of the great San Diego beers available, along with lots of European brews available.

Nice selection of beers that are unavailable to me in Arizona. While the cooler section isnít the biggest Iíve seen in a Whole Foods (Chandler, AZ), it has a really strong selection of locals, belgians (including sours) and other high quality beers. Prices were in line with a nearby BevMo!

First visit to this location. Its a very busy congested store with much to offer in the way fine food and exceptional beer. I noticed that they use the ratebeer shelf tags on some of their products. Prices on food items seemed higher than average, but prices on beer were more in-line with typical about town pricing. Nice place I will visit again.

First stop to load up on beers on my San Diego trip. Found a wide variety of locals and imports, well stocked and carefully selected. Whole Foods is becoming one of the best chain stores for great craft beer. It sure beats the selection of other retail chains.

Surprisingly havenít rated this place even though Iíve been going here for years. Great selection as far as local beers go, and pricing can be good overall. Gets a huge inventory of Bruery Beers now as well as most of the standard SD Fair. The beer orderer knows her stuff and at least for a time was working double time here and at SD Toronado. Its a great bottle shop by itself but if your in from out of town it should make you smile check some off your list of things to get.

I often find myself shopping at this location of Whole Foods, looking for that hard to find or unique ingredient for the latest and greatest recipe. Once Iím in the store, I casually wander over to the beer section and often stare for 20-30 minutes. My fiance always knows where to pick me up when she is done browsing the wine section. Some of the great things about Whole Foods Hillcrest, relating to beer: - Always have a great selection of recently released local brews. - An above average selection of brews distributed in So Cal. - Sweet selection of Belgian and belgian-style brews. - A ton of bombers and 750ís to choose from. - All this great beer is inside one of the better stores to shop for food = great pairings at your fingertips. I find their prices on some things high at times, but overall on beer, they are reasonable. You can always find something to go well with the dinner recipe youíre shopping for.

Pretty good selection of local brews as well as Belgians. I can always find something new and interesting there. I hear they get Russian River Supplication there but hide it in back.......not sure.

Smaller space but solid selection. Somewhat strange layout. Good prices in general. Needs to be reorganized, me thinks.

This place is pretty tight. About 150 bottles with lots of selection from Bruery, Alesmith, Coronado, and a bunch of other Southern California micros. The free cheese sampler across from the beer cooler didnít hurt either. Itís a pretty decent spot to grab a few bottles.
