In terms of decor, if you’ve been in 1 Whole Foods, you’ve been in them all. In terms of beer selection, they’re wildly divergent. Being that they can on,y sell under 6% beer hurts its selection, but even do its a pretty standard selection though they do have a number of locals available in singles. Prices are higher than other places. I can’t say this is a y sort of destination place.
Good place but lacking in a sundry beer selection. They have Rogue and Terrapin but more than that they don’t excite on any level. I have another local grocery store that I frequent but unless I’m going to Greenlife’s meat department will I get beer from their store.
This place is incorrectly listed. It’s in the same building as Greenlife Grocery, but it’s an entirely separate business that has it’s own door next to the entrance to Greenlife.
Small, eclectic selection. Decent for the city, but compared to the selection that can be found in Atlanta two hours away or that of other areas of the country, it is scant.
Friendly, knowledgeable guy at the register.
This is skewed because the selection for Chattanooga is great. For the rest of the world, meh. The guy who works there in the connected wine/High grav beer store is super friendly and knowledgeable and will talk at length about all kinds of alcoholic beverages. The pizza bar has beer on tap and you can grab a brew and go grocery shopping. I don’t know about you, but that is pretty damn sweet!
Pretty good selection of lower alcohol beers in the grocery store, especially for Chattanooga. They have some high alcohol offerings in the separate wine section, and again, the selection was overall good for Chattanooga, but not the greatest. Prices are on the high side, but I expected things to be overpriced at Greenlife. Service was great, employees were helpful and very friendly.
Stopped in after Noogfest High 5. Pretty decent low alc beer selection. Great quality food with a big eatery area. Cold beers by the single. Reasonable prices. A small attached high alc store. Not nearly as large a selection as the one in Asheville, but pretty damn good for a grocery store in TN.

Standard upscale grocery with a decent beer selection. Prices are a bit high and no mixing sixes. Good TN selection though.
