After entering the store, look for the wine department. Then turn around and you will see beer department number one. It consists of a row of coolers filled with 6 packs and a shelf on the end with singles. The selection here is very nice. They also stock several organic beers which I have not noticed in other places.
Then, it is time to move on the beer department number two. This is more towards the back right of the store and consists of cold singles. There is a very decent selection in this area as well. As I was shopping the cold singles area I did notice that they sell singles of Pabst Blue Ribbon which I found odd and comical at the same time.
Most of the typical breweries are represented in the store somewhere. Quality is great. I did not see an employee of the store anywhere around the beer sections. Since I had no need for assistance, I would prefer that I don't have someone falling over me trying to help. This is a regular beer stop for me.
What I walked away with:
Le Coq Stout (brewed in 2003)
Sierra Nevada Harvest Ale
Hoppin Frog BORIS the Crusher

Not a bad place to find yourself in the middle of a polar vortex.
One thing that is neat, is that they have a good draft selection, and you can sit and have a pint or two, and also get some growlers to go. There bottle selection is good. They offer singles, as well as regular 4 packs and up. All pretty good stuff, including the occasional rare beer or two.
Food, speaks for itself. Not a ton of local options, but it is a Whole Foods, so you are going to get pretty good organic and sustainable foods!

This place has an excellent selection for a grocery store. Although located nearby to The Anderson's store (which has a bigger selection), this WF has a ton of foot traffic, which leads one to believe that anything bought would be fresher and priced to move. The beer is spread throughout the store, with separate coolers dedicated to local beers, singles/bombers, and six/twelve packs. I had the opportunity to visit during one of the Monday night tastings, and really enjoyed the ambiance and access to great food (try the pizza). The beautiful thing about this place is that you can buy you beer and consume it on premise (just ask for glassware), which makes for the best grocery shopping experience I've ever had!

Once in a while Ill stop back in this location on my way to The Anderson's which is right near there.
This is quite typical of all Whole Food's Ive ever been to. Beer selection is great for a grocery store. They have a nice selection of larger format beers. Ive seen 750mls of St Bernardus for example.
Service is thin, but its mostly a grocery store so what do you expect? I dont typically need any service anyway.
I only really stop here to supplement a trip to The Anderson's, and with The Anderson's hugely expanded selection I dont really have a need for this location anymore.

Located in a busy strip mall area of Dublin, this store is a great stop for foodies and beer geeks alike. While they may not have the rarest of rare available around here, they have a solid, fresh selection of craft beer.
The beer is spread through three different areas in the store. When you enter, to the left with the vegatables is a selection of localy produced Ohio beer, stored cold. In the center of the store is the largest selection of beer, col-located with the wine. Most of this is stored cold, with some of the big bottles at room temp. Finally, to the right with the restaurant portion of the store is a medium selection if singles. While there is some overlap, make sure you look at each area for the full scope of what is carried.
Rotation seems to be pretty well handled here, so I don't think freshness is an issue. In addition, there is typically someone manning the counter in the center beer/wine section that at least knows what the store carries, if not more. They also occcasionally have reps from breweries or distributirs in here pouring samples for a nominal fee.
All in all, a great stop to pick up beer and the associated artisinal food that goes so well with it.

This is a great store to find a wide variety of great beers ales and wines from around the world. -
If it's a hard to find item try here first - Odds are they will have it.
You can buy singles and or six packs and pint's - I buy single beers as a way to try and rate different brews - I call it a hobby -
- their selection is awesome and always changing with the seasons -
Summer ales - Winter lagers - and everything in between - Even has Delirium Noel during the season -
great prices compared to specialty beer stores
