Stopped in here while on my way to Long Beach Island. While the wine selection is reather expansive like the other Whole Foods stores that Ihave been in across the country, the beer selection was really only average.
Widmer, Lagunitas, Stone, and Sierra Nevada. A few different bombers and 750 options, but nothing really out of the ordinary.

They definitely had a variety, but nothing above and beyond what I might expect to find. Some mainstream Belgian beers were available.
I had four children in tow with me, so I really needed to scan the selections quickly. The checkout person was awesome. She opened up an extra register for me to speed through and get on my way (four kids in tow).

For a grocery store, this establishment has a good selection of craft beers.

So we gave a Whole Foods in Red Bank, which is great for a number of reasons, but alas, it doesn't have one-tenth the selection of the one in the city...but which does?

I found it to have a reasonably large selection of beers I like to drink. While there were plenty of NY and PA beers, I found it odd that 3 of the 5 (or is it 4 of the 6?) NJ breweries were not represented--as least as far as I could tell. That's the reason for the low service score; in 10 visits I've not found the employee yet that's the beer guru, indeed, if such a person even exists.

But I find the prices bearable and the the selection of good, cold beers enough to make me happy each time.

Nice little beer section towards the back of the store's center. Pretty much everything is cold, other than random beers scattered around the store.

Selection includes local NE beers, the big micros, and some imports - mainly Belgian & German. Prices are reasonable but service is not existent - I've never seen anyone working the beer/wine section of the store.

Looks like they get decent turnover as there isn't anything out of season. A welcome site when food shopping or in the area, but nothing special.
