I only went here for some produce while in town, but I did peruse the beer and wine selection while there. This Whole Foods seems to have a little less of a selection than others in the chain, but itís still an OK selection. However as others have mentioned Samís Quik Shop blows it away and is just down the road.

Itís called Whole Foods but itís built on half a parking lot. Not only is the lot small but they apparently think all the Dukieís across the street drive mini-coopers. They literally have 125 different kinds of beer. The section is so small I was able to count it out. Itís all local and regional craft with the occasional Dogfish Head and Lagunitas and PBR thrown in for taste. In short visiting here was 15 minutes of my life I will never get back.

Of the WF branches in the Triangle, the one closest to JCB manor is alas by far the least of them. And thatís not just in terms of beer, to indulge in a necessary aside. One of the most cramped interiors and fucked parking lots on this side of town. Seriously, both Raleigh and CH have remodeled majestically. Letís do this, City of Medicine. Anyways, the beer selection is average and has gone downhill in the last 4 years (used to have a knowledgeable beer guy, whoís since moved on). A smattering of local growlers, a competent array of New Belgium, Stone, Lagunitas, and the like, and a sprinkling of Belgians in 750s and Harviestoun. If you want something, thereíll be something decent to get. But seriously, Samís is right across the street.

Like every other whole foods in the area, a pretty solid selection of local craft and imports. Some big bottles you donít see in other shops as well as some WFM contract brews on occasion.

Iíve stopped in here a few times but with Sams Blue Light right down the street its sort of an exercise in futility. They may have 1 or 2 things that Sams doesnt but not necessarily things I want....Still they have more than your local grocery store and such.

A few decent selections, but with Samís Quick Shop a block away, donít even bother.

Whole Foods, aka. Whole Paycheck. Very expensive compared to other grocery stores, but you get what you pay for. Everyone knows Whole Foods. Great quality gourmet foods for a hefty price. Like most Whole Foods, great wine selection. But when it comes to beer, I donít see any reason to go there. Even Kroger has a bigger selection. (My selection rating applies only to beer in this store, since this is ratebeer.com, after all =)

A typical Whole Foods. The selection of beer is better at the Chapel Hill location but still good for locals. Sams Blue Light is within .25 mile...
