I forgot how much freaking beer whole foods has. They had 12oz Batch 1 Tilquin gueuze on the shelf which was very tempting at $12 a bottle. I bought some PNC and Velvet Merkin from FW and grabbed a burrito. Nice selection, great staff and hard to not fill up a cart with beer.

Prices are a bit higher than some of the other places around town. Selection is nothing special. I guess I just really enjoy Joel, pointing me to what they got in this week. First place I was able to get Pliny the Elder and The Abyss. Little bit jacked up prices but usually a helpful staff, if you know what youíre looking for.

If you go to Whole Foods Roosevelt, ask for Joel, the beer dept manager. His knowledge and passion puts him at the top of the Seattle beer scene.
Great selection given the small cooler and shelf space.

Parking seems as though it could be a pain in the ass, but when my brother and I visited, we had no problems. The selection was interesting. I wouldnít go out of my way to look for any type of "gems", but they may surprise you and have something rare. I saw a few beers here that I havenít seen elsewhere, but nothing exceptional that blew my mind. For a Whole Foods, their selection is quite impressive. They had some glassware, and even had a couple of Stone growlers for sale. It seems as though they really do care about offering a vast selection of solid brews. They have an impressive assortment of singles for sale. Overall, if youíre in the area, or are looking to kill some time, stop by--Iím sure youíll be somewhat impressed. Donít let my score fool you. Iím not really an individual that wants help. Plus, itís a Whole Foods, and in my experience their prices tend to be a bit higher than others.

The service is great and the stewards are very knowledgeable. The selection is fantastic and it is hard to leave without dropping 50 dollars. Excellent.

Nice quality selection considering the smallish beer aisle. Recently they had all four of Lees Harvest special cask aged beers in stock. Other Seattle area WF markets have larger beer departments. Worth a stop if youíre in the neighborhood.

Good beer selection. Good selection of PNW stuff which you donít see at every beer store around the area.

This Whole Foods in Seattle has a great selection of beer due to the hardworking efforts of Stauss and Matt, the beer department managers. Due to their limited shelf space, they donít carry as much as theyíd like. Still, they have a large selection of well-chosen local and national micros, and many imports including a good selection of Belgians. Import beer prices are competitive for the area, with some deals to be found (ask!). Additionally, they have their own line of organic beers made for them by the likes of North Coast Brewing. Check them out, especially if Bottleworks is already out of the hot new beer youíre looking for!

If we didnít have places like Bottleworks and Uber in town, this would be huge boon. Even with them in town, it still rocks having a local grocery store with a beer selection that would make most states cry with envy. The beer buyer, Joel, is a great guy, and really knows his stuff. Iíve received differing reports on which it is or is not policy to break up sixpacks, but Iím usually allowed to do so.

Super high prices, but on a borderline-enormous selection. Parkingís a hassle almost all the time. Awesome selection of high-end groceries to go with the fairly inspired wall of beer.
