This Whole Foods in Seattle has a great selection of beer due to the hardworking efforts of Stauss and Matt, the beer department managers. Due to their limited shelf space, they don’t carry as much as they’d like. Still, they have a large selection of well-chosen local and national micros, and many imports including a good selection of Belgians. Import beer prices are competitive for the area, with some deals to be found (ask!). Additionally, they have their own line of organic beers made for them by the likes of North Coast Brewing. Check them out, especially if Bottleworks is already out of the hot new beer you’re looking for!

If we didn’t have places like Bottleworks and Uber in town, this would be huge boon. Even with them in town, it still rocks having a local grocery store with a beer selection that would make most states cry with envy. The beer buyer, Joel, is a great guy, and really knows his stuff. I’ve received differing reports on which it is or is not policy to break up sixpacks, but I’m usually allowed to do so.
