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.

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.

Great location, great food, leans a little bit toward the pricier side. Beer selection is pretty good, on par with a above average liquor store. No Cantillion or Hair of Dog. Lots of belgians.

The Whole Foods on University has a much better selection of Belgians and more rare stuff. But this is not bad when in the area.

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.

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!!!

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.

I donít understand all the negative ratings. Yes, the parking lot is crowded. Every strip mall parking lot is crowded in Southern California. And yes, be prepared to spend 20% more on your grocery food bill. But the beer selection is okay. I was there just this past week and there were tons of AleSmith, Bruery Trade Winds, and Old Rasputin 12th Anniversary, among others. And the cheese stand is right there for nice pairings. And I know I can save about $2 on each bottle rather than if I headed to a particular beer store in the area. I live only three minutes away from this place, so while I wonít come here solely to expand my beer cellar, I will buy a few bottles that I havenít already tried while shopping for dinner. Overall: Crowded, but for the distance, itís worth it, for me at least. Return: Yes. #45 on 02032010, DG.

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
