It's more of a beer store sectioned off in a supermarket building than it is a beer section in a supermarket. The section has its own registers which is very convenient seeing as how Whole Food stores in Manhattan tend to get amazing quantities of foot traffic. The beer section relatively serene, clean, neat and reasonably well organized into US and non US brews. A decent amount of their brews are chilled in dairy style displays.
International offerings include some things I've never seen anywhere else and would be reluctant to try to pronounce or spell. Bottles (and cans) include Southern Tier, Butternuts, Slyfox, Great Divide, Stone, Rouge, Ommegang and some mo'.
The star here, as others have said, is the growler filling station. It seems early on most of the people doing the filling didn't know what they were doing but it seems that kinks are getting worked out of that system. Rotating, local brews in jugs. What more could you want?
Whenever possible I go to New Beer Distributors before coming here, but Whole Foods sure makes it hard to ignore them entirely.
