Not much to add to the previous comments, but I’m really pleased I called in. Ideal for those on the I-Drive tourist trap, where, although beer choice has improved, there’s nothing as good as here. Fine range of unusual and interesting brews, wish I’d been able to sample the tap offerings
A somewhat large Whole Foods with a fair selection of beers at good prices. The selection is local, regional and a few popular Belgians. There is a tap and deli station though we did not sample their goods.
As good a selection as any WF I’ve seen. Won’t stand up to Knightly, but little can.

Easily the most ’happening’ Whole Foods I’ve ever been in with a live band and hopping central bar complete with a busy bar tender and people actually getting drunk. Special edition CCB and 7venth Sun on tap was quite the shock. Beer selection is annoyingly split into two parts of the store, all bottles refrigerated. Was sad to find only normal CCB can offerings with no 750mL special releases. Lots of single 12oz bottles to do a mix six pack, but the breweries offered were pretty weak sauce. Thought I struck gold with a Lagunitas Sucks sixer, but it was over a year old :/ Food looked great as usual. Staff was very helpful. Got some strange looks for sampling olives and chocolate that were supposedly for ’paid guests only’ that were having a store wide wine tasting.
If staying by sea world/Disney/international dr they have a great selection. A mix pack area up front where you buy singles.. Hundreds of choices. Local and non. Back of store you have you 6 packs and bombers. Prices pretty good. Beat publix on most beers. Coolest part is the little bar area they have in the wine coffee beer area. Some 8 plus beers on tap. 4 local and the rest from abroad. Good beers..cool spot. Oh and food available at this little bar... Whole foods take on pub fare.
