Not sure how the geography works, but though the address is Glen Allen, it is considered a Short Pump location.
New Whole Foods. Parking was a freaking nightmare, but there are plenty of spots and there was a festival taking up some of them, so hopefully it’s better. I hear they have parking attendants on weekends to ease the flow.
Ambience is typical Whole Foods. Customer service is efficient and helpful, above the curve for some other Whole Foods locations.
The specialty section (cheese, wine, beer, coffee, etc.) is MASSIVE compared to other stores, with an entire aisle dedicated to beer, with minimal macros and an inspired collection for a grocery store, one of the better I’ve seen at a Whole Foods. Definitely worth a stop if you’re in the Short Pump area.

Nice selection of quality brews. Not the largest, but definitely has a very cool availability of growlers to go and some bottles you won’t be able to get anywhere else. I guess they just move enough volume to get preferential treatment when it comes to certain releases. Decent pricing too. I’d definitely shop here more often if I lived out this way.

Went here on 9/24/2011 when visiting a friend in Richmond. Decent selection of draft beers for growler fills. They had Heavy Seas The Greater Pumpkin on draft. That was the only thing out of the ordinary. Was able to get the latest Terrapin Reunion beer and the Traquiar 2020 beer (last bottles of each). However, both seemed high priced. I bought those and a Pumking and the total was $27! The Pumking was $6.99, if I recall correctly. Otherwise, nice selection. Will go back if in the area.

Very nice beer selection and plenty of cheese to pair with it. This is a huge store and being in Short Pump it can be a miserable place to try to get to. The place can get a bit crowded, but it’s hard to avoid a crowd in the area.

It’s nice for a grocery store. The stock people actually approached us a couple of times and asked if we needed help- usually you have to rove aisle upon aisle to find anyone who will help. Good selection. Pretty good prices. A few taps for growlers an on-site "sampling."

Nice selection of bottles, singles, mix-a-six, small but nice draft list that rotates frequently. They fill 64 and 32 ounce growlers. beer staff is knowledgeable and friendly. atmosphere is..well, it’s a grocery store but there is seating so you can enjoy a pint or glass of wine there. fair prices.

Quite possibly the best grocery store when it comes to beer...and they have growlers now!

A pretty cool place, if you actually find it! Pretty good selection of craft beers, and even a hidden section of local beers over near the fresh produce. Great cheeses to pair it with, and some pretty good prepared foods as well. Aside from being a good beer store, its the best grocery store in the area...somewhat pricey though.

A nice place to go get a beer. They just recently started offering a decent selection of draft beer in growlers. One minor annoyance is that you have to track someone down.
