Small bar in the back of the store near the cheese section, half a dozen taps. Beer selection was fairly small, with basically one shelf of bombers and the rest sixers. Pricey.

Overall, one of the larger Whole Foods in the metro DC area. This one boasts at least 5 beers on draught and ready to go in growlers. The singles selection is thoughtful yet pricier than other places nearby. The staff is eager to help, just as with almost any Whole Foods.

Pleasantly located right behind my hotel near the King St metro station. Whole Foods always has a better than average lineup of frosty bottles and I even found a couple new singles to take back to the room.

Iíve been to many a Whole Foods in the last few years - this one probably rivals Austin as having the best beer selections so far. Dozens of east coast micros - even found DFH Raison DíExtra - first time seeing this. Dozens of bombers and lots of Belgiums. Could have a few more single 12 ozers - but the world does not revolve around us beer geeks I realize. Quick jaunt from the King St Metro stop - hint - head to the left and look for Duke St.

Beer selection was pretty good although, as mentioned below, many were six packs only. The two Ommegang beers and St Georgen Kellerbier I bought were enjoyable.

Tiny bar so small that I almost missed it. 6 taps of high quality stuff but stupid high prices. Why would I pay a buck an ounce for watermelon dorado thatís around the corner for 16 cents an ounce in the bottle?! Anyway, had one beer. They donít take cash. Bottle selection was good, but very limited singles and 10-30% markup.

Decent selection, but even the cheaper, regular grocery stores in the area are starting to stock many of the beers they have here. Service was good, as a person stocking the area asked if I needed any help. Clean.

Stopped here to get some beers for my hotel room. For a whole foods, this had a pretty disappointing selection. No singles either. Parking is free though. I would not go out of your way for this location.

Stopped here on a Wednesday afternoon. Located near the GW Masonic monument in old town. This Whole Foods is similar to others I have been to, with the Vienna location being closest as far as beer selection goes. It lacks the special/vintage beers (w/the exception of JW Lees) that the Fairfax location has, and overall has a little less to pick from, but still is pretty solid. Pricing is a little expensive, as the other Whole Foods are, and most of the products are only in 6 pack form. They had a warm shelf area, like Vienna only smaller, with some singles (mostly bombers/750s) that you can pick from, to go along with the stuff in the coolers. Worth a stop if in the area, but falls short of some other places in NoVA.

This store was considerably smaller than the Fair Lakes Whole Foods, and is more comparable to the Milwaukee Whole Foods, which is also in an urban setting...so perhaps there is a smaller store format for built-up areas and a larger one for suburban areas. Anyhow, the smaller store size didnít do anything to enhance the storeís beer selection, and also this store lacked the hot/cold lunch options of the Fair Lakes store. I was not really impressed. This store did not seem to offer a tremendous number of brands that were not also readily available elsewhere.
