A bit pricey, but they always have a nice selection of local beers, some sours, and obscure imports. Not a huge selection, quite small in fact, but it is constantly changing.

Of the three NYC WF I have been to, this certainly has the smallest selection, and the smallest focus on beer. As mentioned, the beer is spread in two different areas of the store, and in each place what is available is craft, local, and not particularly unique. Overall, nice Whole Foods, convenient to a lot of NYC hotels, and worth a visit only if you do not have time to hit WF Bowery or even Union Square.
58 = ★Ĺ (Local place tickers only)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Itís a supermarket with an interesting but kind of random selection of beers. 4- and 6-packs are in the beverage area, and the bigger bottles are over by the cheeses, which seems odd. Small and crowded by Whole Foods standards (but hey, youíre in NYC, if you wanted the íburbs experience, youíd be there...)

This is a natural foods supermarket - very busy, with long lines. The beer section is very good - some selections can disappear quickly, but interesting new ones appear regularly. I have a long way to go before I have tried everything this place has to offer.

The best part about going beer shopping at the Chelsea Whole Foods is that the guy who stocks the beer is very knowledgable about the product and is happy to help with recommendations or opinions. I can always find a beer I havenít tried or at least canít remember what it tastes like at this Whole Foods since the selection does change pretty frequently. I canít speak as much for the other locations, but I do know the one at Union Square has a good selection as well, although Iíve only bought beer there once. I also like that a fair number of small bottles are available to be purchased singly.

The best supermarket selection in NYC. About 150 bottles, Belgians, local micros and national micros. Captain Lawrence, Cantillon, Dupont, Oskar Blues, Chimay, Blue Point etc. The killer cheese counter here makes this place one stop shopping.

Lots of turnover and an upscale demographic guarantee that youíll get fresh, fairly exotic beer like Hobgoblin and Dupont Reserve cider. In fact, there are, as of 3/07, four NYC Whole Foods locations:br
1. 7th Ave. & 24thbr
2. Union Square Southbr
3. Time Warner Center (southwest corner of Central Park)br
4. Bowery @ Houston St.
