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.
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.
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 itís hard to avoid a crowd in the area.

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 itís 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 Iíve seen at a Whole Foods. Definitely worth a stop if youíre in the Short Pump area.
