Whole foods beer sections are hit or miss and this ones pretty much of a miss. Yes they have a small pick six section and some local growlers but since when does whole foods sell. Budweiser? Finding a beer person here is nearly impossible. The selection is Better than a convenience store but lacking compared to your Wegmanís, your Earth fares, and some Harris teeters.

Been in here a couple times just to see if they had anything different (or just in stock) than the other triangle WF. Sometimes I have gotten lucky and found what I am looking for, but most of the time its just same old same old, but I can pick up a few food samples during my trip which is always a plus.

A frequent stop for lunch, this WF has one of the better beer selections of the chain locally. A smattering of local growlers has appeared of late, but other than that there are a few sizable shelves of well selected Belgians, Germans, English, and US craft brews (lots of California stuff in particular) along with Bells, Founders, and tons of good locals. Theyíre usually good for picking up the not-too-rare seasonal stuff (like Ballast Point Sea Monster, for example) and the staff is helpful.

AMBIENCE - Itís a Whole Foods. The beer cooler is in a tight space dominated by cheese and wine. The other beer selection is also a tight fit for browsing. SERVICE - Didnít ask for help, but I was there for a while and employees only hurriedly brushed past me. One even slammed into me and never looked back, nice. SELECTION - Small but good mix. Seems like things move pretty quickly too, there were some unfortunate empty shelf spaces during my visit. I left pretty happy though. Samís or Carrboro is still better, but hey, for a Whole Foods, it is outstanding. FOOD - If you need it, the deli is great. VALUE - Prices seem right in line with the quality of items and location. OVERALL - If I lived in the neighborhood, Iíd be overjoyed to have this store in the area. But it wouldnít keep me away from the true bottle shops by any means.

We used to shop here all the time when it was Wellspring. The interior hadnít changed much. The beer selection was pretty good and I picked up some 750s for cheap compared to PA prices. In fact, they had Victory Wild Devil in the corked bottle for a dollar less than what I can buy it for in my hometown. Thanks PA taxes!

Okay beer selection but generally overpriced. A nice variety of microbrews including NC ones. Would like to see more beers sold individually. Not my first choice to shop for beer in Raleigh, but convenient location.

Decent selection of craft beers overall, heavy on Duck Rabbit. Good that they support the NC brewery. Some singles, bombers, 750ml bottles. A lot of their beers are in a cooler. Wish there were more singles, but still a nice place to stop when Iím passing through Raleigh. Prices are reasonable.

First time in, wonít be the last. Very good selection at fair prices, some even refrigerated. Some singles, but not as many as I would have liked to have seen.

Decent selection of singles - both imports (mainly Belgian and English) as well as some local and CO bombers. Decent selection of NC brewed beers in sixers and also a good selection of Colorado beers (Great Divide, Oskar Blues, etc...) and Bells stuff. Nothing spectacularly rare, but a nice selection of quality beers.

Not many rarities, but a good selection of sixers and singles. Beer is scattered all over the store, which makes it kind of hard to see everything, but there is a beer section of decent size as well. Nothing ultra-rare, but a good, wide ranging selection. Good selection of locals. In a couple of visits Iíve never run into any employees in the beer section but the customer service overall is good. Parking may be a bit tight. Prices are in line with other WFM locations.
