t0rin0  (1515) Do Not Resuscitate, California | December 9, 2013
Visited December 8, 2013.

This is a convenient stop right off of I-5. The selection isnít bad but itís kind of middle of the road for a Whole Foods. They have a large selection but a lot of it is 6 packs which makes it look larger than it is. I saw some neat stuff that I hadnít seen before like 6-packs of Rodenbach. I also saw the new Rodenbach Vintage (2011 is the current one).

The point I should have started with is the fact that there is a bar right up front. Iím not sure if itís actually part of the Whole Foods or if itís separate. On the inside itís called Torrey Pints and on the outside is a sign that says Mrs Goochís Bar. Itís an (comically) unfortunate name. The selection is pretty solid though, featuring mostly southern California beers. I didnít check the prices at the bar as I wasnít interested in a pint but it could be a nice place to hang out and have a beer before or after spending $300 on groceries. That comment aside the beer prices on the shelves arenít terrible.

Right off of I5 and not too far from the Rock Bottom. As far as Whole Foods go, this isnít the biggest or most extravagant location, but itís pretty typical once youíre inside in terms of the layout and the products.

Beer selection is average for a Southern California, and particularly San Diego store. As one would expect, all the big players such as Alesmith, Stone, Ballast Point, Firestone, Green Flash...they also have some of the more regionally recognized breweries like New English, Coronado, Rough Draft, Julian Cider, what have you.

The one thing that does set this place apart is that there is a bar inside. This seems to be a bit of a trend with some of the SoCal Whole Paychecks (I know of at least two or three others that have this set up). Kind of cool, though I donít know why you would want to come to a grocery store to drink beer unless youíre waiting for your wife/husband/boyfriend/girlfriend/mom/whoever or maybe itís near where you work.

This Whole Foods seems a little dated from the exterior and it is smaller than most but packs an adequate amount of craft beer at good prices. There is a growler and bar area serving food. Typical WFM service.

Excellente sťlection un peu bric ŗ brac autant pour les biŤres de base que certaines raretťs ou spťcialitťs. Le bar Torrey Pints, ŗ líentrťe, vaut ťgalement le dťtour.

Wow, ultra crowded parking during my visit. Grid-lock. The selection is nice and well priced. I saw Avery, Alesmith, Victory, lots of Unibroue, Stone and several others. Bombers for singles and all 12oz were in packs. Nothing rare. I walked out empty handed. It was rather zoo-ish inside and in the parking lot. Not worth a special trip.

Coming from PA, this was the 1st store I found Alesmith at (probably a common happening for CA folks). A little pricey ($10 for 750) I found Speedway, Wee Heavy & Grand Cru. Other local and imports as well.

Decent typical whole foods location. I just bee-lined to the beer section. Grabbed a couple random singles. They still had Bert Grants shelved so that gave me an idea of their turnaround. Found some north coast jubilee though, that wasnít up at bevmo or holiday so I guess thatís a treat. The register folk were useless. Took me 10 minutes to check out because they couldnít figure out how to ring up a single. Plus they were charging $1.99 for a single out of a $5.99 sixer. Lick my balls!

First time I visited a Whole Foods store. What a great concept having a bar in the grocery store. And what a bar, great selection of craft beers available, staff seems to bknow their beers and service was fast and friendly.

Parking is toough but beats the drive to Bevmo if your staying nearby, 3-4 Alesmith, Ballast Point, Coronado, Port and 6-7 Lost Abbey, mostly six packs but some good finds

This is one of the Whole Foods to buy beer. Well, it is a whole foods. I have never had anyone offer to help me locate anything or just talk to me. But the beer selection here makes up for it. Plus Iíve never seen more beautiful, busty and bra-less females shopping for food anywhere else. I work in RETAIL!!! Food selection is the best. This perticlar Whole Foods has everything West Coast you might want. AleSmith EVERYWHERE!!! 6 different ones!!! I do enjoy the private label beer they sell as well. But this location is the best one in the chain I have found so far!!!
