The first thing I noticed about this place was how late theyíre open.

Rex Banner: Open up Curly, this is a raid.
Moe: Raid? Curly? OK, but I donít know what you expect to find in a friendly neighborhood pet shop...
Rex Banner: Answer me this: what kind of pet shop is full of rambunctious yahoos and playing hot jazz music at 1am?
Moe: Uhh, the best damn pet shop in town?

So theyíre not open until 1 but they are open until at least 11 during the week. Remember, this is a grocery store, not a bar, though apparently if you buy bottles you can take them upstairs to the cafť area and open them. Or maybe you canít but I did see several open Anchor Steam bottles on a table across from one of the food vendors. Downstairs in the main store area youíll have a tough time finding the beer if youíre just wandering the aisles. There is only one small refrigerated section with a pretty lackluster selection. Across from that though are some bourbon barrel aged pickles and whiskey barrel sauerkraut. I got a kick out of that but naturally I didnít buy any of it. Beyond the huge line to check out, next to the exit is a small stair case that goes down into a much larger beer area. There is a counter in the middle that fills growlers and all around the walls are tons of beers, half of which are kept cold. It looks like you can break six packs too. Pretty cool. I grabbed a couple of beers from an English brewery that I hadnít heard about that looked interesting. The bottles advertise that they use wild yeast. I also got something with chicken feathers glued to the bottle. Hmm. Prices werenít terrible on the beer, like they are for the food. So thereís that. Coupled with a good selection and the option for growlers this is definitely a worthy stop if youíre bottle shopping.

As others have mentioned this place has its own beer room which is located past the cash registers. Yes they have a ton of beers and a depth you donít typically see. I swear Iíve never seen so much evil twin in my life. But I would never buy anything there. The room is bathed in light since they employed floor to ceiling windows on two sides. They compound their flawed design by placing much of their beer neíer the windows and they do only a token job of blocking the light. Really, whatís the point.

Best Whole Foods in NYC for beer. Separate place for beer detached from the store! There are growler fills! Shelves of crazy things like Goose Island Juliet, Cantillon, Struise, olders Stone beers, Cigar City (what!?) and loads of crazy Italian stuff. Very nice.

Of the NYC Whole Foods stores, this one is the best for buying beer. Excellent selection, reasonable prices - especially if you take advantage of their tap lines and fill up your growler there. They occasionally have samplings, which is cool. A great spot to find beer from across the United States and around the world.

Excellent beer store, within easy reach when going through central Manhattan. Superb selection of well chosen beers and breweries, from imports to locals. Prices are a bit steep, but that is to be expected from a Whole Foods on the island. But the selection is so impressive, itís hard to complain.

Well lit, spacious Whole Foods beer department. Entirely devoted to beer, cooler on one wall, racks on another. They also have 5 or 6 growler fill stations, and a bunch of homebrew supplies and ingredients (which I had never seen before, and was cool). I did not ask for, or receive any service. The selection is not enormous, but certainly tends towards the rare and unique. Really a solid beer store. Itís about 2 blocks from New Beer, so I would certainly hit both. I would start at New Beer, as they seemed to have universally better prices and a deeper selection.

Nice bright dedicated beer room. Back wall is lined by a cold case stocking about 100 bottles or so... most arenít rare, but they are well-chosen. There is a small cheese selection at the front of the shop. The main event is the growler filling station in the middle... I think there are 6-7 taps with a well chosen and well priced (under 10 bucks) selection. A worthy addition to the area.

I came in here to escape the oppressive heat of the New York summer. Thereís a decent number of bottles. I didnít notice anything particularly interesting, but the range is certainly solid. Thereís loads of staff milling about. Overall, the beer selectionís definitely better than any supermarket Iíve ever walked into.

Amazing beer selection at this whole foods. 6 or so growler stations to go. Small beer selection inside the main part of the store, but a whole alcove passed the express registers. Amazing selection, well laid out. You can spend quite a bit of money here. An essential stop as far as bottle shops are concerned. Plenty of homebrewing supplies and equipment as well. A very good selection of homebrewing books. Beers seemed a bit on the pricier side of things. A decent amount of cider too. I knocked off quite a few wants list items here.

Good sized Whole Foods with its only little beer store that is probably the best by far that I have seen from a Whole Foods. Growlers, home brew supplies, and nice selections of both regional and import bottles. They have it all. Not a whole lot of rarities, but they do get all of the good stuff it just happens to sell fast.
