Great selection, plenty of good food if you choose to dine there. Itís never occured to me before, but after reading these comments, it sounds like a good idea for lunch -- as long as I donít have to go back to work.
Thsis where I originally discovered Hopslam a few years back. For that alone, they get my vote.
And their price -- for the record -- is $17.49 a six-pack. Certainly reasonable.

Abiance = 3 because it is a grocery store service is 5 (the middlest number) because I just walked in, picked up some good beer then left Selection (13) explains itself. The only thing keeping this from being 15 is that there is not an unbelievably large beer section of the store it is a large and very satisfactory section, but it isnít as big as a Party Mart for example. However, they carry a wide range of beers, many of which I have found very hard to find in the past. Plus, they will order beers you want! Food = 10 because, as I said, it is a grocery store (and a kick ass organic one too!). And, Overall is 19 because I think anyone who likes finding well rated, quality beers that they wonít likely find anywhere else should visit Whole Foods. The prices werenít that bad either.
RERATE: Iím updating this because Whole Foods updated their beer selection and now has an impressive singles section that includes many highly respectable beers and various bottle sizes.
Fantastic store with an extensive selection. One side is a cooler full of sixers and the other is a large shelf of singles. Rochefort, DFH newest offerings, Anderson Valley, Great Lakes are just a few available. They also have great educational signage above the beer, telling shoppers about styles and what to try if they like certain more popular beers.
I really love this place. I must say that it is exactly like Wild Oats in Cincinnati, not sure if theyre owned by the same company perhaps... Anyway, being a lover of organic and natural foods, this place is wonderful to me, and....... they have a nice beer selection too! How much better can you get?
Easy to find location with easy parking. New fixtures and clean location with supermarket service. Good beer selection of six packs and some singles. Great food selection of pre-made lunch or dinner carry-out and eat in. Always stop if you see a Whole Foods.
Not a bad selection but mostly just sixers of stuff you can at the Liquor Barn. That said, the reason to go here is more than just the beer. A nice variety of cheeses and other organic food items. Right down the road from BBC. On par with most Whole Foods I have visited in the past. Gosh, I wish one of these was closer to where I lived.
Whole Foods is an excellent grocery that can be expected to have good quality regardless of their location. They are committed to the quality of their food and will not stock items with artifical colors or preservatives. Their focus is on having a good beer selection, not stocking the best-selling brands. That said, their prices are not competitive to the large liquor stores, although this Louisville store has some very interesting selections not available from the Liquor Barns.
