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.

I had heard this was a great place to pick up bottles, so I decided to drive the rest of the way down yesterday after I went to drop some stuff off with my girlfriend in Fullerton.

Only a few moments after arriving in the beer aisle, Chris came over to ask if I had any questions and if I was looking for anything in particular. He let me know he had some other stuff in the back and ran through a pretty impressive list. Amazing service and very friendly guy. Definitely talk to him if you're there and even thinking about beer.

The selection was quite good, I ended up walking out with a HotD Blue Dot, HotD Adam, Lagunitas 13th, and a Duchesse De Bourgogne, but there were plenty of other beers I cold have picked up. Plenty of Blind Pig and Pliny, and apparently a decent stock of Consecration kept in the back. Lots of Lost Abbey, Stone, Lagunitas, Moylans, HotD, and many more from CA breweries. A good selection of Belgians too, Rochefort, Chimay, Achel, and a bunch of others that I can't remember off-hand.

Prices are what you would expect to find anywhere, so I have no complaints there.

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.

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.

Located basically at the corner of Slater/Segerstrom/Dyer/Barranca and Jamboree in South Tustin, the Whole Foods in Irvine is certainly the biggest Whole Foods I've been in, it's at least 3 times as large as the locations in Long Beach and Westwood. Went here twice, once to get a turkey for Thanksgiving, and a second time to get a turkey for Christmas. What sets this place apart from the other locations that I've been to is that they have a beer and wine bar in the establishment, where you can take a break while you're shopping. While they only have 5 beers on-tap at a time, none are macros, I had a Houblon Chouffe Dobbelen IPA Tripel from the Chouffe brewery while there in November, also saw Arrogant Bastard on-tap and Franzikaner. Bottle selection is quite good, lots of CA micros (Stone, Bear Republic, North Coast, etc., all the usual suspects), along with a great Belgain selection - Achel, Dupont, Rochefort, Orval, Koningshoeven, Westmalle, Duvel, lots of stuff, also had the rare Samichlaus Helles. Not a place I'd go to just for the beer or the on-tap selection, but if I'm going there for food shopping, the beer selection is just an added plus.
