Was also amazed to see a tap room inside this supermarket, not open though when we visited. Staff were helpful, especially as an issue came up when we paid for our stuff, as we were overcharged for one item. Selection was solid, good range of big bottles, limited selection of single smaller bottles. Food at Wholefoods is always good, with a great hot food selection and salad bar but is quite pricey. The beers I bought were reasonable, some expensive bottles also. Not a patch on a dedicated bottle shop but great if you want to buy groceries and beer at the same time.
Pretty frickin rad Whole Foods, they have a full out taproom and bar place right next to the beer section inside the store. Selection is not particularly extraordinary but they have an employee dedicated to help you make your beer selection. Prices are quite good (grocery store prices!). Very cool place.
Fik en enkelt taster imens konen købte morgenmad til ungerne. RR Sanctification og Blind Pig på hanerne, meget nifty. Fint udvalg af singles på hylderne men ikke særlig god service i forhold til hvad jeg ellers oplevede i USA
Impressive selection of bottles with pretty reasonable prices. Service was quite attentive and willing to give advice or direct you to what you wanted to find. Definitely worth a stop when in Santa Rosa if you have some time.
Well now, this is pretty darn cool. I have been to Steep Brew, which is a tap room adjacent to a Whole Foods, but this one is right inside. Pretty nice taplist, and tasters for $2.50. Step out and peruse the pretty standard bottled beer selection as well, just dont take your glass with you!
Freakin rad grocery store. I have to give this one bonus points for being able to do your grocery shopping while tasting world class beers in a pub literally INSIDE the store. Not a different room accessible from the store, but a little hut in the middle of the store. Haha, I love it! I’ve been here a few times and whoever is in charge of getting beers for the taproom is doing a bang up job. There is always some really rare and tasty beers on tap. The bottle selection (outside the taproom in the grocery section) is very good as well. I’ve actually seen better at other Whole Foods, but this one is good as well. The service is nice and the taproom itself is super small but feels comfortable somehow.
Stopped here to pick up some food and hit the beer selection, while we were at it. Average to slightly above average selection of singles and bombers. The coolest part of this place is the draft selection, which offers tasters of various beers on tap. Didn’t get a chance to try many, as it was super crowded, which was weird for a Wednesday afternoon at 4:00 pm, oh well. Friendly and helpful staff. Pretty cool joint, but I still prefer Bottle Barn for stocking up.
Stopped by on a quick overnight trip to town. Pretty muck all WF have an above average beer selection, I think that is known. But, I hadn’t been to one yet with a draft and homebrew supplies…pretty cool idea. Solid bottle selection, picked up a couple of singles. Between the cooler on one side and gain on the other is a open front tin shack looking structure with draft and vintage/no longer on shelf bottles for consumption there. Nice selection on both lists, with prices being a bit on the high side. Sample were available, but the bartender said for beer week they were something like $2.50-3 but the rest of the time they are less then $1. Had a Rio Reserva that was something stupid like $12, but what the hell. Service was nice and cool concept.
surprisingly really cool place that exceeded my expectations. Manager put on a one year aged Lenny rye that he held back, as well as 2011 North Coast imperial stout. The best beer on this trip was a pint of a Bear DIPA harvest. Everything served at appropriate carbonation and though a tad cold, a reasonable temperature to just wait out. Cheap pints, they have some happy hours as well. The bottle selection was very good, with some harder to get stuff in the US craft cooler, not found at the Bottle Shop. Friendly and polite people, a good service and lighting.
