Beer is stored in at least four different locations, so it can be a bit confusing. Some of the shelf bottles are covered in dust, but the 4 and 6 packs seemed OK, and the fridge beers seemed good. Pretty good selection, including some well chosen and interesting stuff. Worth trying if you’re in the area.
Does not sell singles. Their liquor license will not allow for it, so they sell 22oz bottles in pairs. Found Rogue Dad’s Little Helper and Harpoon Saison 2x22oz for $10. Other six-packs are available, most of the local/regional stuff such as Magic Hat. Nothing rare located here, however it was the only beer store in DC which I visited that had the Rogue Dad’s Little Helper, and even though I didn’t want to buy two for $10, I bit. Otherwise, it’s a normal Whole Foods, I mean how different are any of them?
Interesting enough selection and mostly domestic bottles. Split between chiller space and shelves. I’m sure the selection turns over regularly so worth checking in to see what’s on offer. I came by mid afternoon so avoided any clusterfuck of after work crowds.
I was walking back to my hotel from Birch & Barley and this place was still open. Stopped in on a whim. I am amazed at the low scores given the selection I saw. There were a lot of impressive beers in the coolers, and I found a couple of Cantillons that I would consider rare in my neck of the woods.
Unusual for DC this place has free parking on the roof. Not a big selection but it’s packed without quality. Thanks to DC’s weird laws they have stuff you can’t get elsewhere. Picked up the stone’s colloboration Mint Stout I haven’t seen anywhere else. And unusual for who,e foods they actually had a guy in the section assisting people. Pretty solid find.
This is one of the busiest WFM locations, and certainly the busiest in several states. Nice store... my food from the hot bar was good. The employees were disinterested. Competitive prices on beer, and a nice selection, with some less common stuff.
This store was packed with shoppers. The beer selection was pretty good with one large cooler and one long shelf. Most of the beer was stuff available in my region but some NE stuff like Duclaw and some MD beers were available. There wasn’t anything super rare or necessarily must-buy but the selection was extensive enough to make for a pleasant beer shopping experience. I was surprised that the prices were reasonable. It seems most everything in DC costs more than back home in the southeast but the beer at Whole Foods wasn’t too bad.
Thursday morning is not the best time to find good beers in Washington DC... most of the beer stores are closed but then thank god (or somebody else) there is the Whole Foods! Very nice selection of bombers and almost all in cold. I was looking for some imperial stouts and voilà... I found more than I needed. Thank you Whole Foods... you saved my day!
Visited here on Black Friday along with all of the other people who were looking to make their yearly BCBS purchase. Apart from having to suffer from waiting in line within earshot of some painfully awkward beer geek chat, the experience actually wasn’t all that bad. I arrived late in the morning, avoided bottle sales, and instead got a glass of the coffee variant to enjoy in the upstairs cafeteria. The beer selection is very good for a Whole Foods. Plenty of locals alongside a strong selection of players from the rest of the US and Europe. OK prices. The staff were friendly. Overall, one of the better options if you’re looking for bottles in the area.
Convenient spot if you are staying in the area (which I usually do when in town) and one of the better beer store options in central DC. Mainly six packs, which you cannot split (not sure anywhere in DC is supposed to now, but Cairo Liquors a couple of blocks away still does apparently) but I found a few decent bombers for drinking back in the hotel room post bar/restaurant. Nothing super rare but a decent selection.
