I stopped in here not expecting much at all, and was pleasantly surprised with what I found. One of the best stores I have found in Northern VA so far. A good selection of cool and warm beer, which is different from other Whole Foods I have seen that have almost exclusively cool beer. Some of the bottles here I have not seen at any other places, including Norms, other Whole Foods, and Total Wine. Staff is friendly and the beer buyer seems to know his stuff. Prices are reasonable (although no mixed 6 pack discount is a disappointment). The ambiance isnt bad..about as good as you can get for a supermarket. Overall definitely worth stopping at.

Went there on a visit to Vienna (Tysons corner) for business. Overall, the selection was good, picked up some new finds plus some old favorites. Made the monotony of the trip bearable. Picked up about 8 good 750mlís along with a Unibroue I was looking for for a while. The store clerk was very helpful, although he didnít know much about wine. (I lived in No Cal for a few years so my Napa/Sonoma knowledge is not too shabby). Overall though, made me happy...enough.

I went to look for beers here yesterday and I was somewhat disappointed with their selection. They had Troegs, but none of those bombers and I didnít see any rare breweries such as Russian River (which has been reported to be in stock there in the past)

Another douche bag central on Saturdays. Have fun trying to dodge all the douches on 123 trying to get to the driveway. Beer selection is good. I used to get 12oz Rogue IMP Stout bottles aged 2 years until they ran out. Good selection of bombers but lately they have not been keeping up with what Jim D started.
Recommend getting there before 11am on Saturday to get away from the traffic surrounding it.

Used to be the bomb when Jim worked there. But, the selection has gone downhill severely since he left. Norms now has the better selection, if you want to drive out there, that is.

Living on the Westcoast I see Beer at Whole Foods all the time. The Whole Foods in San Diego have decent selections but this one takes the cake. A whole half row in the market, half shelves half refrigerated. This selection was really pretty astounding. Lots of great things similar to Normís down the road, but also all 3 high end 12ozers from DFH Extra, WWS and 120. Also a pretty nice selection from around the country and the globe, not to mention some glassware and collectors boxes. My dad was also pretty impressed with their wine selection.

Staff seemed resentful of the customers, selection had obvious gaps...
I prefer the whole foods in glover park, even if it has a comparatively constricted selection, at least the staff seem happy to be there.

Great selection. I stopped in for Bellís because you canít yet get it in Baltimore. There were about 8 different Bellís brews sold in 6 packs. I was more than satisfied with the available beers. Donít count on getting singles.

Top notch selection for a Whole Foods. Good local selection, had Kasteel Rouge, and a decent Belgian selection. Good enough to plan a stop there for sure.

Iíve seen larger selections, but this place had some (of what Iíd call) rare beers! Pretty great prices. I prefer Normís just down the street but I was happy to see beers and vintages I havenít seen elsewhere, ever in this area. Dropped a huge amount of money immediately and will be back again.
