This Whole Foods is right by my job, which I love. I've gone in here on a couple of occasions. The first time I went and checked out their food they have set up buffet style for you to stick in some styrofoam and head back to work or eat at the various tables they have set up. On this visit I noticed their nice selection of beers.

On my second visit I checked out the beers (2 coolers on 2 sides of the store). Many single bottles and 4/6 packs available as well as big bottles. The prices are comparable to most other stores although sometimes you'll find a good deal. If you don't see something or only see one of something the staff is super friendly and willing to go see if they have more of what you want.

Finally, they have a bar in the middle of the place, which stocks around 8 beers (CCB among others) and a good selection of wines.

This is a typical Whole Foods market, with a good (but not huge, compared to, say, Total Wine) selection at decent prices.

One way, however, in which it is NOT typical at all is that it has a bar right in the middle of the supermarket - an honest-to-God BAR with 8 craft beers (and 16 wines) in coolers, proper bar-top with coasters, stools to sit at and a knowledgeable bartender. It's U-shaped and the other side of the U is a a coffee bar, with an ice-cream counter linking the two, so pretty much all tastes of a snacky/desserty/beery nature are catered for. I had Cigar City Hotter-than-Helles and Brooklyn Blast Double IPA, so there was both local and national interest to be had.

The bartender said it was the only such bar in a Florida WFM, although he didn't know about anywhere else (nor I). Food from the store (like hot fresh pizza) was available and in all it was remarkable how much of a bar ambience was created among the tomatoes, pesto, cookies and fresh fish.

I stopped here on two different occasions during our Orlando vacation. This was a very convenient beer pit stop on our way in and out of town and is just off the highway.

Atmosphere: First of all, as a grocery store, this place is great... one of the better Whole Foods I've visited actually. As a beer place, it was good. The beer selection is spread out throughout the store for no reason whatsoever. Curious....

Service and Quality: There was no CC Maduro on the shelves when I went for the second time. I wanted to grab some on the way out of town to bring to a friend. I found the beer buyer and he retreated to the back and found a freshly arrived shipment of the stuff. Nice customer service!

Value: As with most Whole Foods, the prices were $1-2 higher than most other places, however, I did find some stuff that was right on par... particularly the Cocoa Beach Brewing Co. stuff.

This is a very easy, convenient stop in Orlando, particularly if you are staying near, or are visiting Universal Studios.
