Not a bad place however, the beer selection is not as big as i was expecting. Didnt seem to have anything really rare either. Very crowded store at most times. Awesome food though-went here to eat before heading to Churchkey.

A decent enough place, a lot of six packs available, many cold, but most are put out for sale in the wine/beer section of the store. Cold selections vary from Corona and Yuengling at a reasonable price to regional specialties from Victory, Clipper City, Dominion, Dogfish Head, Brooklyn Ales, and many other Eastern brewers. Several decent Belgian selections are also available. The service is almost non-existent for beer, at least that has been my experience. There are usually some good prices for sixpacks of decent beer and wine. I really like living less than a block from this Whole Foods, quite nice.

Haven’t been to this branch very often, but it’s a whopper. Back in the day, the arcana of city law meant that you had to buy bombers by the pair. Strange, but that never bothered me much because the selection here is quite good for a WF. Tons of Belgians along with a far better range of US craft than many of the liquor stores in the Dupont area.
Decided to stop in here on my mile and a half walk back from Churchkey to the place I was staying. I couldn’t buy 95 percent of what I wanted since I didn’t have a car. Great selection, after careful deliberation I chose to buy New Holland Farmhouse Hatter.
Pretty decent selection for a grocery store, they had a couple ciders I hadn’t seen before, and the stone mint stout. Almost all the singles are in the fridge, which is a big plus. While the parking is free, there are a bunch of cabs taking up spots, which makes finding a spot a challenge. Overall, one of the better whole foods.
The closest and best place to buy beers for me in DC. They got relatively good stuff (some of it is absurdly overpriced like $15 for a Rochefort). However, they got pretty good prices on micros like Full Sail and 21st Amendment. Beer Geek Breakfast is $10 bucks... etc... Widmer is super cheap there as well. I trust their beer to be pretty fresh because the place is crawling with yuppies who will buy a fancy shmancy beer to look all fancy shmancy. Have yet to compare it to the higher rated beer joints. Oh and while you are there you can always pick up some tasty cheese (or sample the free sushi).
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.
Whole Foods is always a good place to pick up some great micros and this one in DC is no exception. There is nothing more stupid (or more fun) than picking up a four pack of Dogfish 90-minute and a couple bottles of Ruination to drink back on the hotel balcony after a night of drinking. Still can’t believe we didn’t get kicked out…
I stop in this place literally every day on my way to work. One of the better selections in DC, with Stillwater bottles, Bells, Founders, DC Brau, etc. etc. I’ve bought sought after bottles there such as King Henry, BCS, Firestone XV, Parabola and Sucaba, La Folie, and more. Good food grocery store as well. Definitely worth a stop if you’re going to Churchkey, which you should if you’re in DC.
