4/5 rDev -4.5%
Great selection for a food store, and an above average beer department for a Whole Foods, but not nearly as impressive as the separate beer "store" at the Whole Foods in the Bowery.
Some limited high quality stuff, limited small batch brews, popular craft and macro brands make up the sizable cold section and non-refrigerated bombers. Always some deals going on like $5.99 Evil Twin stout bombers. Near the registers they have shelves of cold singles for mix-a-six with a lot of different beers, but it's away from the main beer section.
Service has always been good when the people are around, but half the time there is no designated beer person just standing there waiting to assist.
The prices are reasonable if you know your beer prices, especially for an expensive area of NYC like Tribeca. If you know your prices then you should do fine here. Growler prices are on the low side which is always a plus in NYC.

I take a short train ride up to WF Tribeca once a week during lunch at work. While at the talk centers around other Manhattan WF, especially (and deservedly) the Bowery loaction, Tribeca offers a really nice selection, a lot of it refrigerated. My travels in Manhattan are limited these days since moving to LI, so it is nice to have a place close to work where I can pick up brands like Crooked Stave, Westbrook and Stillwater that I cannot get close to my house. There is a small, 4 tap, growler station that usually has something interesting and 32oz fills are available which is a nice touch. Small section up by the registers, away from the actual beer aisle, allows you to build your own six pack (just be careful with the IPAs, they are usually in that section because they are past their prime)
Prices are pretty solid for Manhattan and there are some selections that are cheaper here than where I live in LI. The staff there is excellent. I have dealt with probably 4 or 5 different employees, all of whom will stand there forever talking beer, have a complete knowledge of the stock in store and on order and are willing to grab something for you from the back if it does not happen to be out on the shelf. Excellent place.

A it's a grocery store so... Not much in the way for atmosphere...
Q everything was pretty fresh, nothing outdated hat I could find.
S awesome, they knew about what was in the store and got stuff out of the back for me.
S they had a lot of stuff available. Things I couldn't find anywhere else in the city.
V a little high, but not bad for manhattan. This place was great.

Went there in December for the first time. Great selection - many different beers than the Whole Foods up where I live. Full range from inexpensive to 'Utopias', and common to obscure. Quite a few import brands, which allowed me to try Hobgoblin for the first (and last!) time. Staff member Aaron, I think it was, was incredibly patient, pleasant, knowledgable, and helpful.
There is a little 4 tap Growler station for those who need to fill up.
The checkout lines are long. I don't know if there is a time they are not, but judging by their unique turn-based system, I'd imagine it's a constant thing there.
Overall, if you're in the area, a very good place to stock up on your brews..
