Pretty good, limited, selection. Not as good as many Whole Foods stores. Six-packs and bombers of some of the more popular US craft beers. Only a few Cigar City beers. Just a small group of imports, but all were good brews. Nothing that was rare. Though I heard that some people label the store, "Whole Paycheck," I found the beer prices reasonable.
The only reason to go here is because they may have the best Cigar City selection for bottles in town. Ad if you’re visiting the brewery, this is only a few blocks away. Come here to pick up the rarer offerings.
Right behind Cigar City Brewing and with its own parking deck. In the same shopping center as Total Wine so make sure to stop by both. Prices are good here for the Cigar City and Jolly Pumpkin stuff- sometimes the CCB stuff is cheaper than at the brewery taproom! Found bombers of Ballast Point Sculpin here, new Cigar City releases in 750mL format. Smaller selection but better quality than the Total Wine. Worth a stop if you are visiting Cigar City.
It is a market, but a good one for hunting down beer at. I do find myself frustrated often though because it seems that no matter when I go in there is no one in the beer section, and no one is able to answer questions about their inventory or when they may receive items. I do appreciate though that they have some unique beers floating around in there that I can’t find anywhere else.
Another Tampa spot that I never rated. Right next to CCB, a good selection of craft beers with many seasonal beers. Good time to buy some cheeses as well and bread.
Beside that, they sport many local FL products which is a very nice way of supporting local producers.
Always very nice and friendly service, and of course the very ’eco friendly’ buy bio retail style corporate feel. Really targets customers who can afford shopping there.
I love Whole Foods Markets in general but will try to review this as a stand alone beer store. The selection at this location is a tad bit smaller than many other, bigger whole foods stores. That being said, it is still above average with a large selection of singles and sixes/fours. Many great beers to choose from including many that most places don’t carry. The food, of course, is amazing. Sushi, pizza, bbq, etc. all made fresh and with good ingredients. The service here was damn good. One of the employees started talking to me about all the different beers they carry and how he personally tries everything to be able to help customers with questions related to craft beers. The cashier also noted my beer purchases and was able to remark on all of the beers I had purchased. I was quite impressed. Good prices to boot. Great place just not as big as some of the others.
