Blah Blah Blah, another WFM with a big beer aisle. Dont be misled into thinking a big selection equates to a good selection. Most of the offerings are mediocre at best.

They do have Pliny the Elder relatively cheap. Sometimes they are out, but when they have it, it is very fresh. Other than that I dont go here as I can get everything else I want closer to my house. Bevmo down the road has everything else and more (or should I say, mo) you may want.... about a mile down the road

A glorified supermarket with a decent selection of beer (for a grocery store, note). They don’t carry anything that can’t be found at a real beer store with the exception of a couple of North Coast beers which are made semi-exclusively for Whole Foods. "Highlights" include Old Stock Ale, RR Pliny and Damnation (common batches, not 23/46), a few locals (a la Jack Russell), and only the most ubiquitous of belgians like Chimay and Duvel.

Same old, same old. Sort of a standard upscale grocery store selection. More Jack Russell than other area stores, I think. They have the two North Coast specials for Whole Foods. Worth a stop, if you’re driving by. There’s a Valero across the street, so it can be a twofer. Gas and beer (maybe on the beer).

When this store opened 2 or three years ago, it had a great selection of beer. Unfortunately, Sacramento proved to be a poor market for fine brews, so they cut their selection by about 70%. They still have several of the top-selling Belgians (Chimay, Duvel, Rochefort) and a few good domestic microbrews (e.g. Lagunitas, Stone), but the local BevMo does better.

Located about a mile down the road from the Bevmo!, this place is a shadow of what the Bevmo is. They might have a beer or two that the Bevmo doesn’t offer, but none being special beers. The only "cool" thing about this place is that they had Face Cachee Niege Cider for $25 a bottle. Interior is a grocery store aimed towards wealthy yuppies.
