Visited later on a Tuesday. Mostly standard Whole Foods lineup, though they seemed to have more local craft then the other South Florida Whole Foods I have been to. They had an OK single lineup which included several Cigar City beers.
64 = ★★ (Just ok)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
Typical Whole Foods ambiance with lots of concrete and utter disorganization as to where anything is. The beer selection is decent with some obvious national and Belgian Craft labels but curiously lacking in local stuff. I did have an employee ask if I needed help which was very unusual for a Whole Foods but otherwise itís nothing special.
I was amazed at this Florida supermarket store, where half their alcohols election was wine, and half beer. Its a health food supermarket, so thereís not much help. But the display of beer is beautiful. Lots of St. Bernaduses, Chimays, and a broad selection of Belgians in single bottles., In fact, there was more great beer than the usual local 6-paks. And little macros.
This Whole Foods is huge, like a Whole Foods Superstore, and in what looks like a fairly new area. Inside looks nice and clean with a big selection of the typical Whole Foods product. Lots of seating to eat on premise. The wine selection is big and they have the cheeses and such that come with other WF. But since this is a beer website, itís important to note that I found their beer selection to be mediocre at best. I just wasnít too impressed. It wasnít easy to find either. I found their large wine area and assumed it would be close by but the beer is on the other side of the store. Anyway, beats the hell out of the grocery store for sure but just thought theyíd have a little more.

Overall very good. One of the best Wholes Foods around. Good import selection as well as micro brews.

I worked at this Whole Foods and its definitely one of the better beer selections out of the stores Iíve seen. They will single out almost anything they have if the price allows it (we only have $1.5 and $3 single tags).
