Pretty decent selection of bottles, cans, bombers, sixers. Lots of locals. The little "bar" in the front of the store has 6 taps and usually some decent offerings.

Last year Ajax and I scored some BCBS here, this year I walk in and spoke right to the manager since the allotments for BCBS are very different. She stated “This store doesn’t carry Bourbon County anymore.”

Damn, really?? Well as far as the rest of the beer selection goes I can’t see it much different from any other Whole Foods now that BCBS is no longer carried. If you’re in South Loop just go to Binny’s.

This Whole Foods has a small but OK selection of cold beers as well as 10% off if you make your own six pack(though the nearby Binny’s has one for 10$). Not bad not good more nothing special - average.

This is an OK shop. Not the biggest selection in the area, ok prices, ok service. Didnt find what I was looking for and when I asked the staff they didnt know what I was talking about.

Pretty big beer selection. I was more interested in the cheeses they had. they sold me some BCS which is always awesome and I grabbed some water here. Had to convince the cash register dude that yes this bomber was $20 and he didn’t believe me.

A bigger Whole Foods than most in the city, this one is pretty neat. Nice selection of beer, larger than expected with some more hard to find beers (Saison Brett, for one!). Prices are reasonable and the location is pretty accessible. Not sure if the service is knowledgeable and I don’t tend to ask. They are friendly, though.

My girl and I went grocery shopping here during a recent trip to Chicago so I decided to grab some beer while we were at it. Atmosphere is just like any other Whole Foods in that it’s much nicer and more sophisticated than your average food retailer. Considering this place is not a full-blown liquor store, the beer selection is very impressive and most of it is refrigerated. Love the "Microbrews" signage and style descriptions above the cooler. Brands on my visit included Goose Island, Great Lakes, Bell’s, Unibroue, St. Peter’s, Victory, Dogfish Head, Anchor, Great Divide, Brooklyn, Stone, Rogue, Duvel, Lagunitas, and Sierra Nevada. I bought a 6-pack of New Belgium Ranger IPA to quaff at our hotel room. Although I was disappointed that I couldn’t find any glassware, I will still return to this store when I find myself back in Chicago, since it’s a convenient stop for beer & groceries.
