This one is very close to a McKenzie’s. Going in (as of today), it’s immediately on the left side, just to the left of all the barrels of coffee beans. A cool (cold!) beer cave that would be a welcome respite in the summer, kegs and bottles to take out, reasonably-priced mix-a-six with different price tiers, and the best part, an actual bar! It’s really a small coffee shop, but the baristas also pull from eight taps, and I saw people drinking wine, as well. So sit down and have a pint before shopping, or fill a growler to go. Honestly a little disappointed with the Whole Foods itself; not quite as extensive as others I have seen (though still nice!), and not as good as local Wegman’s(es), though far better than the nearby Trader Joe’s.
Has your faro, Evil Twin, Dark Horse (!?), and Philly locals.

This is a solid Whole Foods (althought not quite as good as Devon). Small cooler with a decent sized bar to drink at. Some nice brews come through, especially imports. Service is below Devon but fine.

Great place to shop for vegan/ vegetarian as well as customary food. Upscale grocery store with very good selection of local and notorious craft breweries throughout USA.

Small off to the side of store pub style setting that has 5 taps for growler fills and draft offerings..prices are reasonable for growler fill..seem to have mostly local drafts but recently had some better variety..they just got a boat load of 2 hearted so if looking for this..they have some..didn’t sample food but they seem to have basic pub type snacks small plates at the bar..most of bottled offerings are kept cold in the walkin..a bit cramped in there and they don’t offer singles of all offerings but do have bells,founders,lost abbey..which isn’t available in DE..have picked up some Russian river here as well in past..none this time..decent stopping point but not really worthy of a single stop destination..

Beer section is tiny and tight quarters. Servers/workers seem overwhelmed and minimally knowledgeable as relates to beer. The selection focuses on locals so nothing too interesting to be found on their taps. Prices are fair to good but the selection is ho hum as craft beer goes...just the usual suspects. Decent enough for a sixer if youre in the neighborhood but not nearly as good as whole foods devon.

Tucked inside of what looks to be a dismantled and reassembled gazebo/ weird tiki-shack. Awful beer on display in front: trite, expected varieties of local beers and macro-nonsense. 8 draft lines all filled with typically boring and thoroughly average local stuff.
Food selection is fair, reasonably enjoyable, even. Seating and atmosphere is mediocre and somewhat confused between a retail shop and a bar.
There’s a small cooler in the back with the same trite, and uniformly average selection of marginally local varieties. A few bombers, mostly odd selections. Trying too hard to push the local angle, and it just comes across as an amateur effort. There are kegs in the way of a bunch of the macro varieties, which I’m fine with, except that the whole venue was obviously designed by someone with no forethought or understanding of the bar/bottle shop context.
Value is great, however— best prices around for their limited selection. Growlers usually range from $8-$14. Pints will tend to be $3-$5.
Didn’t have any of their coffee (I forgot to mention there’s a coffee barista station behind the bar as well).
Nothing desirable about this place for anyone looking for a destination point. But hey, if you’re a random, confused shopper who already happens to be in the store, stop on in and get an education in mediocrity! No reason for me to go back.
