This is one of the most horribly overpriced and unpleasant to navigate supermarkets Iíve ever been in. The parking lot must have been designed either by an idiot, or a sadistic genius wanting to inflict pain on shoppers. The store is always crowded. The prices are through the roof. Beer selection? Good, but not great, and certainly not good enough to bring me in the door given all the negatives about this supermarket.

A good selection but far from great. If youíre in the area stop in - otherwise donít bother. Nothing particularly memorable here in terms of selection or price.

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.

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.

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!!!

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.

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!

This place has got a lot better over the last year. Big selection of micros and organics. Every now and then, you can find a rare beer. I found a magnum of Hair of the Dog Fred there about a year ago for $12. Normally, this place is pretty pricey, but worth the 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.
