Seems a bit older than the other Ann Arbor location and it has a smaller selection, but the selection is still good. Lots of locals and some Jolly Pumpkin stuff I didn’t see elsewhere. What is has over Roosevelt is a 12 tap pub with some nice local stuff! Friendly staff solid prices. Hot bar food was tasty. Parking is fine.
A very nice selection here that includes many Michigan locals, a good bit of Colorado stuff, and even a bunch of Belgian and trappist beers (Rochefort). Usually have some Jolly Pumpkin. A bit pricey on some stuff but pretty standard overall. Not a huge fan of their premade food stuff. Very nice for a grocery store, though.
This is your typical Whole Foods which means along with a decent selection of national brands you will find some local / regional stuff. I didn’t walk out with much besides a Dragonmead Final Absolution but there were several other tempting options. As a first stop near the interstate this is not a bad place to begin your beer hunting.
A great first stop for local beer. Whole foods prices are always reasonable and I have found some hard to find beers hiding on the shelves. For example, at this location, they had a few kuhnhenn mayhem bottles on the shelves as well as many shorts 6 packs.
Bunch of shorts six packs, BA raspy, dark horse, arbor brewing. Prices are pretty typical. Found a couple new dark horse beers here I haven’t seen in indiana.

Maybe I was just done with beer shopping by the time I got here, but seemed the selection was no where near as good as other WF places I’ve been. Not that I wouldn’t check it out again, given the chance.

Well, as a couple users have said, it’s a Whole Foods. Selection is better than my local stores by brands, but after a few visits, I wonder about the freshness of some of their non-refrigerated selections. I noticed after opening an Achel Bruin after a recent visit that it was marked as having expired two years ago. The beer was great, but it could have easily been something that doesn’t age well. Beyond that, the prices are decent compared to the specialty beer stores in Ann Arbor, and it’s nice that they have a small selection of beer glassware as well. As of 2012, this Whole Foods has added a very small (three tap) draft beer selection over by the wines.
