Due a rerate! Old rating was 70. Food, prices were typical of a Whole Foods. Excellent customer service at the bar, which is a relatively new feature. They went from 8 taps to 48 in a newly installed bar. Lots of local beer, some uncommon stuff, and even something whale-ish (Rum Barrel Ted Fidy). A few of the taps are dedicated to kombucha, but there are 45-ish taps dedicated to beer, mead, cider. They have also increased some space for the bottled selection. The selection of small format singles could be better, but, this is a great selection in both bottles and keg. Prices on beer are solid. Service is good. George working the bar during my visit was excellent, and went out of his way to try and find some weird esoteric information for me. Food, parking typical of Whole Foods. Recommended stop.

Big dedicated parking lot. Typical Whole Foods. Different selection than I would expect at a typical beer store. Beer is in the back center in a refrigerated case. Found a beer I have been looking for, so that is a plus.

A fairly typical WF with probably a slightly better than average beer selection for the chain. WF gives their employees a decent amount of autonomy when it comes to stocking products, so it’s always fun to see what they’re carrying here compared to the store in Charlottesville. The 8 taps featured a nice mix of local and national craft. The bottle selection’s relatively large and prominently features a lot of regional producers. A 32oz bottle of Lagunitas Sucks was calling my name, but I refrained from making any purchases on this occasion. Service is very friendly. The beer buyer at this locations’ a pretty well-known character in the local beer scene, so I’m always confident in the quality of product being sold here. Overall, not a bad stop if you’re in the area.

One of the best beer selections I’ve seen at a Whole Foods. Nice long aisle of chilled beers along with a few more bottles on the other side. Some good local beer selections. Nice selection of taps for on-site consumption and growler fills. Friendly beer staff. Definitely worth a stop if you’re in the Richmond area.

Nice selection of bottles, singles, mix-a-six, small but nice draft list that rotates frequently. They fill 64 and 32 ounce growlers. beer staff is knowledgeable and friendly. atmosphere is..well, it’s a grocery store but there is seating so you can enjoy a pint or glass of wine there. fair prices.

It’s nice for a grocery store. The stock people actually approached us a couple of times and asked if we needed help- usually you have to rove aisle upon aisle to find anyone who will help. Good selection. Pretty good prices. A few taps for growlers an on-site "sampling."

Nice selection of quality brews. Not the largest, but definitely has a very cool availability of growlers to go and some bottles you won’t be able to get anywhere else. I guess they just move enough volume to get preferential treatment when it comes to certain releases. Decent pricing too. I’d definitely shop here more often if I lived out this way.

Quite possibly the best grocery store when it comes to beer...and they have growlers now!
