Visited May 29, 2014.

The first thing I noticed about this place was how late they’re open.

Rex Banner: Open up Curly, this is a raid.
Moe: Raid? Curly? OK, but I don’t 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 they’re 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 café area and open them. Or maybe you can’t 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 you’ll have a tough time finding the beer if you’re 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 didn’t 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 hadn’t 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 weren’t terrible on the beer, like they are for the food. So there’s that. Coupled with a good selection and the option for growlers this is definitely a worthy stop if you’re bottle shopping.

Visited around 8.30/9pm on Monday 25/11/13. Large Whole Foods with its own beer room to the rear, there are some six packs and craft beers dotted about the food hall but the beer room is way back practically on the next block! Good all round choices from locals to US wide and European offerings about 300 or so I’d reckon on. 6 taps available for growler fills also. The staff were both heplful and knowledgeable and came around the store with me searching for CDA’s! Solid supermarket bottle shop/beer room, definately the best of the ones I’ve been to in NYC for both selection and price.

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.

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 don’t typically see. I swear I’ve 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 ne’er the windows and they do only a token job of blocking the light. Really, what’s the point.

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. It’s 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.

76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

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.

I came in here to escape the oppressive heat of the New York summer. There’s a decent number of bottles. I didn’t notice anything particularly interesting, but the range is certainly solid. There’s loads of staff milling about. Overall, the beer selection’s definitely better than any supermarket I’ve ever walked into.

JoeMcPhee  (529) Toronto, ON, Ontario | September 22, 2007
Nice bright dedicated beer room. Back wall is lined by a cold case stocking about 100 bottles or so... most aren’t 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.

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, it’s hard to complain.
