This store was packed with shoppers. The beer selection was pretty good with one large cooler and one long shelf. Most of the beer was stuff available in my region but some NE stuff like Duclaw and some MD beers were available. There wasnít anything super rare or necessarily must-buy but the selection was extensive enough to make for a pleasant beer shopping experience. I was surprised that the prices were reasonable. It seems most everything in DC costs more than back home in the southeast but the beer at Whole Foods wasnít too bad.

Visited 05-MAY-2014. For a european a fantastic selection. Unfortunately this crazy American idea of six-packs. Large bottles are nice and plenty. Food is as always extraordinary.
Must visit place. I will return.

I was walking back to my hotel from Birch & Barley and this place was still open. Stopped in on a whim. I am amazed at the low scores given the selection I saw. There were a lot of impressive beers in the coolers, and I found a couple of Cantillons that I would consider rare in my neck of the woods.

Pretty good selection that was, more importantly, easily accessible after my visit to Birch & Barley / Churchkey. They had the one thing I really wanted to find (Stillwater Saison), plus I was able to grab 9 other east coast bombers that I havenít had yet. The selection was not the most extensive for a Wholefoods, but was top notch stuff that I was quite happy to get a hold of. They also had lots of 6 packs that I wish I could have grabbed singles of too.
In the end the selection was much better than I was expecting & was actually good enough that I donít feel it is necessary to make the trek out to Chevy Chase.

One of the only good bottle shops in DC proper that I found. Very small beer selection for a whole foods, even the size it is. Nice that most is in the cooler. Lots of cans which is awesome and almost everything was super fresh. 1 week old DC Brau! Food is like every whole foods, good but not cheap. Worth it to use this as a dinner while at a conference and take some beer home on my dime.

Great selection of seasonals and micro brews. Typical of Whole Foods markets that you go to around the country.. Does not let you create your own 6-pack.
Edit* Much bigger selection and has a ton more single specialty bottles.

One of my favorite places to hit up in the city since itís so close to Churchkey. Itís always easy to swing by and get a bottle or two on the way to or from the bar.
Atmosphere isnít much to speak of. Thereís an aisle to the left when you walk into the store. Sometimes thereíll be a few cases of things further into the deli section, like when they got New Belgium in. Service is good in terms of them answering whether they have things in, etc, though Iíve never really asked more-detailed questions than that.
Selection is a good sampling of pretty much all the breweries -- at least in terms of six-packs -- that are distributed here. Plenty of larger-format bottles as well. One irritating thing is that theyíre the only place to tape together two individual small bottles, e.g. Rochefort and Orval. I think this has to do with some D.C. regulation on size of to-go sales, but no one else seems to observe it.
Overall, a good spot in a nice location, though nothing mind-blowing. Worth a stop if youíre looking for bottles and are heading to Churchkey anyhow.

They have put in a cafe with beer and wine. Sample racks and really unique and nice beers. Most people dont even seem to find it. At te end of an aisle so not ggreat ambiance but friendly and informed. Plenty of foods at their deli.

Visited a couple of times in the middle of October 2011.
Very nice Supermarket, I wish we had similar Supermarkets in Sweden. (one can dream)
Large selection with ridiculously low prices, at least for a guy from Sweden. A six-pack of Bells Expedition Stout did cost 17.99 USD. I have seen that beer in Sweden once, one bottle did cost more than a six-pack at this Supermarket.
One drawback was that you had to buy the whole six-pack, not individual bottles. Well, I had to content myself with a number of large bottles.

One of the best Whole Foods Iíve seen for beer but in no way shape or form is even close to the Bowery Place Whole Foods in NYC. They have remodeled the entire store so now beer is not in three different places. The selection of single bottles is quite extensive and is your best bet to pick up DuClaw and Stillwater bombers. Sometimes they have some odd Italian beers. Staff here is pretty smart and helpful. They have an actual beer buyer who gets in special release beers, but they never put these on the shelf and you have to know someone to get an "in" on this special release beers. KBS, Vanilla BCS, etc all came to this store but never were put officially on sale. So, their practices are pretty lame. Best bet is to make a relationship with one of the staff and just know through the grapevine when a special release beer is possibly in stock and then pretty please them. Definitely worth stopping in after an afternoon spent at Churchkey around the corner. Food is actually pretty good if you are getting buffet but best bet is to go in the afternoon when random people sell grilled hotdogs and hamburgers out front for $5. Beware, around 6PM on weekdays this place is a fucking madhouse with half of DCís elite shopping for overpriced groceries.
