I’ve bought beer in about 6 Wholr foods, and this was one of the worst on selection. There were a few things I wanted, but prices were high and it was less impressive than usual. Better take away selection than Columbus Circle,tho.
Popped in here in March ’12 to pick up some bottles for the following days Amtrak trip to Montreal.
Didn’t look at the tap selection but the bottled selection was decent enough for the centre of Manhattan. Largely NY and east coast offerings and a few favourites from around the nation.
I picked up a Brooklyn Local No.2 and Ommagang 3 Philosophers amongst others.
They have some really nice beer here, but there isnt very much and the better stuff is all warm. A few taps, but this location is always insanely busy so it’s not a place you’d want to hang out. Lineups are always crazy here when it comes to checkout time, but it’s good if you’re staying in the area.
Uhh, the most crowded Whole Foods in the world. Literally impossible to check out. Beer selection is downstairs in extremely cramped aisles. Very minimal selection...like worse than most common grocery stores in NYC. Only thing I saw of even remote interest was SN Celebration fresh six packs but it was so crowded here I picked up the exact same thing at the corner grocery store a block away. I don’t see a reason to ever go here vs. Bowery Place Whole Foods.
Visited midday on a Sunday, killing time. Selection was smaller than other Whole Foods I have been to, but they did have a cool fill station with four unique local selections. This was the redeeming factor, and makes it working it check out. Otherwise, pretty standard Whole Foods selection.
