Whole Foods Market brand-spanking-new flagship store, seven stories high and across the street from their old digs. Gotta say, they've done a great job of the place, it's a beauty.
They've worked up some fashion of "beer alley," a stand-alone walk-through cooler with doors on each end. Beer is loaded up on shelves lining the wall with some loose sixers and cases on the other side. Beer guys stocking the place know their stuff.
The selection may seem great, but it's only just now come up to the number of beers that Central Market has been carrying since day one. Good to see the breadth of selection here, though, limited only by what the state allows.
I only have one criticism of this place: They forgot that Texas stays 99% humid year-round. With the cooler standing alone and both ends opening for customers, the cooler itself is cold but massively humid. Heavy condensation on every bottle and any paper/cardboard is rather damp. Remember to lift everything from the bottom when you pick it up.
