Decent Wholefoods located a short walk from Cigar City. Good selection of US craft beers, but not as good as Total Wines that is in the same complex. RuinTen was on the shelf which is always rather nice. They also have a small bar with 6 taps. To be honest with you I came here mostly for the food and free wifi. Still worth checking out if your in the area.
Standard Whole Foods atmosphere, with a good selection of regionals. Singles on some and some good bomber selections as well. Small bar area for sampling. Service was very helpful if you ask and the beer pricing was pretty competitive.
Bog standard Whole Foods when it comes to beer. Yes, they’ve got some great stuff, it’s seems pretty well kept and the prices are very competitive. But you aren’t likely to find anything particularly fetching here. Still, worth a stop. Especially since this Whole Foods seems to really go for it when it comes to samples. I think I scored about six+ samples on my visit - that’s solid. This place is walking distance from a few other beer venues - most notably Cigar City - so you may as well have a look in.
An OK Whole Food located in a shopping center close to CCB. This branch features a small bar with a few taps in addition to a decent bottle selection. Locals including St Somewhere etc. were available in addition to things from further afield. Moonlight meads were on offer, which was pretty surprising to see. The prepared food quality was pretty mediocre compared to other branches. However, plenty of stations offering free food samples were set up, which was nice. Prices and service quality was as expected.
Visited on 21/02/15 during RBWG as only a 5 minute walk from CCB.
Decent sized beer selection, largely US, some European stuff also, Cuvee Rene and the likes. Make your own six pack also on offer. We eat here, pre CCB opening from the ’by weight’ hot buffet. Decent snap.
3 Yeti variants at $9.99 a bomber - what’s not to like?
Parking building right in front or park at the nordstorms outlet on the right side and walk a block. Typical Whole Foods. Limited beer selection, with a few gems. If I would have driven I would have bought several of a favorite of mine.
Thank God Whole Foods is open until 9pm on a sunday night when most places are closed.
A: Its a Whole Foods, what more do you expect from a grocery store.
Q: Found some really good bottles and a nice selection of good local fare too.
S: See Service, its a grocery store, not a beer nerds paradise.
S: Had a nice selection of sixers, bombers, and you can do a mix six pack too.
V: The prices were reasonabe for sixers and bombers.
Overall, its a whole foods...better selection than a normal grocery store but still a grocery store.
Ok..Jeez give me a break. This is nothing but an overpriced national chain. Their buffet really sucks. Nice that they jumped on the Craft beer wagon to further harm all the local places. If we have to have chains, Trader Joe’s please come to Tampa...PLEASE!
This place is great for great food as well as great beer. A lot of seasonals are usually always in stock, every now and then there are rare singles. The only drawback is finding help with any beer is tricky, they aren’t that knowledgeable of what they have.
