Great 2-story Whole Foods with a cozy wine and beer bar in the store. You have to check out the shopping cart escalator! 8-10 unique craft beers on tap. Staff is very knowledgeable. Bottle selection is enormous, but randomly organized so itís difficult to find anything specific. Food consists of cheese and meat plates. They have a happy hour special that consists of a steak served on a paper plate. Happy hour pricing and lots of bottles on sale makes for good value.

I used to stop in here on the way to Stuffed Sandwich occasionally when looking for certain things (Abyss, Mirror Mirror, Enjoy By, etc). Unfortunately they dont really have any knowledge of what theyíre carrying. Theyíve never heard of most of the stuff I ask for and I only bother asking about things I know will hit distribution in the area. So in that sense this place isnt very good. The beer selection is also a bit smaller than other Whole Foods but aside from that itís about the same as the rest.

Very nice store. The import selection isnít huge, but some of the standards are there. The US craft selection is decent. Iíd probably go for the food selection before the beer, but they make a fair effort on the beer given that it clearly isnít their main source of revenue.

I stopped by after I had called at least a half dozen Bevmosí and Whole Foods to see if they had any Parabola left. Diana was really nice and said she still had some and would hold a bottle for me. I was helped by another employee when I picked up the bottle but she also was happy to help me. Even the pretty girl at the register was really nice and we made small talk about beer. A good vibe in the store from everyone that works there. Selection is decent and the pricing is very good, on beer. I will be back if in the area.

This seems like one of the first Whole Foods, before it became the iconic Apple Store of expensive food. I like the service, because Diana the beer lady rocks. Nate is ok too, but I donít deal with him much. The selection is mostly good. You can get fresh Stone, Port Brewing/Lost Abbey, Bruery Seasonals, Belgians, and other assorted Craft Beers. What I donít get is the crap beer they sell like Indian Wells, Bud Light, Heineken, and other Organic beers that are seemingly collecting dust there. The prices are spot on, better than any of the surrounding liquor stores, and without the horrible attitude and lies one gets from a local liquor store around here. Overall, itís not the best Whole Foods in terms of beer, but itís consistant, and always provides me with great beer at a great price.

Pretty ordinary selection, take a short walk down the street to BevMo for more choice.
The store in itself is amazing. Two levels of overpriced foodie bliss. I wouldnít go for the beer, but if you are in the store you may as well check out the cooler.

I wasnít able to find anything out of the ordinary here. Plenty of regional stuff like the big Alesmithís, Stone, RR Damnation, Moylans, among some others states like Avery.
There were a few imports of German stuff and some regular Belgians.
Prices were about average - Moylans BW for about $4.50, Speedway for $10, etc.
