Overall, one of the larger Whole Foods in the metro DC area. This one boasts at least 5 beers on draught and ready to go in growlers. The singles selection is thoughtful yet pricier than other places nearby. The staff is eager to help, just as with almost any Whole Foods.
Pleasantly located right behind my hotel near the King St metro station. Whole Foods always has a better than average lineup of frosty bottles and I even found a couple new singles to take back to the room.
I’ve been to many a Whole Foods in the last few years - this one probably rivals Austin as having the best beer selections so far. Dozens of east coast micros - even found DFH Raison D’Extra - first time seeing this. Dozens of bombers and lots of Belgiums. Could have a few more single 12 ozers - but the world does not revolve around us beer geeks I realize. Quick jaunt from the King St Metro stop - hint - head to the left and look for Duke St.
Tiny bar so small that I almost missed it. 6 taps of high quality stuff but stupid high prices. Why would I pay a buck an ounce for watermelon dorado that’s around the corner for 16 cents an ounce in the bottle?! Anyway, had one beer. They don’t take cash. Bottle selection was good, but very limited singles and 10-30% markup.
Decent selection, but even the cheaper, regular grocery stores in the area are starting to stock many of the beers they have here. Service was good, as a person stocking the area asked if I needed any help. Clean.
Stopped here to get some beers for my hotel room. For a whole foods, this had a pretty disappointing selection. No singles either. Parking is free though. I would not go out of your way for this location.

This store was considerably smaller than the Fair Lakes Whole Foods, and is more comparable to the Milwaukee Whole Foods, which is also in an urban setting...so perhaps there is a smaller store format for built-up areas and a larger one for suburban areas. Anyhow, the smaller store size didn’t do anything to enhance the store’s beer selection, and also this store lacked the hot/cold lunch options of the Fair Lakes store.
I was not really impressed. This store did not seem to offer a tremendous number of brands that were not also readily available elsewhere.
