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.

Great selection on a small aisle, and great prices as well, cheaper than Chevy Chase. Green Flash, Southampton, some high grav beer from Left Hand like Smoke Jumper, Legend Barley Wine, Firestone Walker, Bells, Avery, De Dolle, Cantillon etc. The new beer guy Jordan knows his stuff. Itís a bit of a drive for me but Iíll be back.

Man, I would give my left testicle to have a beer selection like this in my grocery store. All bottles are nicely displayed on a wooden shelf. Six packs are in an open cooler. Domestics include Bells, Stone, Jolly Pumpkin, Green Flash, etc. Belgians included Cantillon and De Dolle! I did not see any singles for sale on my visit. If my grocery store had this kind of selection, I would be in the poor house.

I did the trip from Baltimore to Normís and Whole Foods because of the ratebeer essential reviews, and I wasnít disappointed. A very diverse, if incomplete, selection. Belgians and micros. It also has Bells, which is new to this area.
