One of the new enormous Whole Foods that are sprouting up all over the place. It has a large beer selection to go along with the large selection of everything else. I chatted with what must have been their "beer guy" for a minute. Very nice and helpful guy. Also very knowledgeable. He told me that very soon they would pouring beer on-tap in the store. The beer selection was great. All the local stuff, tons of belgians. Lots of rarities as well, including Cuvee de Tomme and Angel's Share.

Nice selection with all the major breweries represented. The head beer buyer is a BA (beerman4) and knows his stuff. The good stuff is allocated in small quantities so it lasts a while - sucks for a hoarder like me but its for the good of the community.
Typical whole food prices. there are a couple taps in the beer section and employees are always happy to hang out with you while you drink beer. Lots of Belgian beers that are kept refridgerated.
This is one of the larger Whole foods I know of. Nothing super rare or vintage here but a good place overall.

Stopped in with kentuckyfriedchickencantsail January 2011.

While they dont have the largest beer selection in the world the have some quality beer as well as some obscure ticks. I saw a couple beers that arent available anywhere else anymore. They also have a large selection of cheap beer for a buck a piece including a good portion of the bottom 100 for the die hard tickers.

Didnt interact with the help much but someone did come up to me promptly and ask if I needed help.

I guess there are some taps but I didnt pay attention.

Good place, will return.

I've been to a few Whole Foods in the Bay Area and I thought the Potrero Hill Whole Foods had an awesome selection, but this one blows any Whole Foods I've ever been out of the water.

First, they have a beer and wine tasting area. About 5 beers on tap and several bottle in the fridge. I went on 8/21/10 and they had Abyss, Bootlegger Knuckle Sandwich, a beer from Telegraph (forgot which one), Bruery Berliner-Weiss, and one more beer I'm blanking on. I heard about Chris and heard he's awesome, but unfortunately some asswipe was working the tasting area (on a side note: why do most employees of Whole Foods seem like miserable, "i hate the world" hipsters, while employees at Trader Joes are usually pretty friendly and nice?).

Bottle wise, awesome west coast selection. Picked up some BA Santa's Little Helpers, some Doggie Claws (never saw these in bottles in the bay area for some reason), and a Coton.

Prices appear pretty reasonable (pretty on par with Hi Times in Costa Mesa).

Standard Whole Foods superstore model, similar to North side Chicago or North Columbus. All the great west coast breweries represented (Firestone Walker, Alpine, RR, Bruery, Deschutes, etc). Chris (beerman4) is very helpful, and obviously knows his stock. A beer lover himself, he seems to take care to get the best craft beers into his store.

This is definitely among the best Whole Foods selections I've seen on the west coast, I'd say better even than the 4th street location in San francisco. I think what matters is the personal touch from beer lovers running the place.
