The only negative to this Whole Foods is the lack of seating. The bartenders are very knowledgeable and are willing to help you out. The beer selection is very good and they are not too expensive. It is a great place to get your growler filled too, for a good price.

Take my rating numbers lightly, it's not really fair to quantify my experience. We stopped through in early April 2014 on a road trip, and the store itself is massive. Beer selection very good; good showing for bigger German breweries, very good local selection, and decent CO lineup. No help was ever seen or offered, but no big deal, it was a weekday morning.

Big takeaway: the singles selection is the wild west. Organization was non-existent. No pricing mentioned at the cooler, gotta wait til the checkout to see what you'll pay... I thought 3.99 for a Deschutes Fresh Squeezed was steep. In the end, I unintentionally got a fair deal on balance. 4 out of my mix six pack were apparently out of sixers that weren't intended for single resale, as they wouldn't ring up. The cashier was nice and didn't seem to care, and rung them each up at $2, and there were some good brews in there. He even made a comment about how disorganized the singles cooler was.

All I was really after was Deep Ellum IPA, so I'm not disappointed in my trip, it was just a weird beer-browsing experience overall.

A massive Whole Foods! The biggest I've ever seen. Its, like, the Walmart of Whole Foods. MASSIVE (hey, I live in NYC, OK?). \

There is an entire aisle devoted to beer here, with about half of it for locals (tons of Jester King, Deep Ellum, Lakewood, Real Ale, Adelberts and you name it).

Six packs of Stone, Alaskan, Founders, Deschutes, New Belgium, Dogfish (61!), and bombers (Dogfish Sahtea, Rhizing, New Belgium Lips of Faith).

You won't go thirsty at this Whole Foods, but most likely nothing here will make you go wow-must-have-must-buy-even-if-i-go-broke either.

The best part of this store is the growler bar! You can drink a beer at the bar inside the store or get a growler fill- 18 taps to choose from. When I visited they had Dogfish Chateau Jiahu and Theobroma, Avery Twentieth Anniversary, Jester King and a large list of Texas beers. They give you samples to try.

Service is friendly at the bar and non-existent at the beer aisles. Prices are Whole Foods prices, get ready! Although the price for growler fills are not unreasonable.

Beautiful grocery store. Always enjoy going in Whole Foods. Beer selection was smaller than I have seen at other Whole Foods, but pretty nice. Stone, Jester King, Oskar Blues, Ballast Point, Mikkeller, Green Flash and several others. Pretty good bomber selection. Everything was cold...maybe too cold, as my Oskar Blues Ten Fidy four pack was frozen to a four pack below.

Food selection is always fantastic. Received absolutely no assistance while browsing the beer selection, but I didn't ask for help either.

Atmosphere is o.k. It's a grocery store...but there were several yummy mummys shopping there. Man, I would bust a gut if we had a store like this at home.

I have been here one time and went there to find out if they have The Abyss. They didnt have it, but I was pleasantly suprised at the set up of this place. The beer selection was very nice, but right next to the bottled beer was a selection of craft beer on tap. Its so awesome that you can get a growler to take home. The bartender guy let me sample the beers and was very nice. There were a lot of people in the store and it was hard to just stand there and look at the beers. The beer was a little more expensive then most places, but they also had beers that I havent found anywhere else. Very great place to buy beer and I would go here all the time if it was closer.

They don't have a lot of local breweries (they have some 4 and 6 packs but only 2 bombers). They did have two jester king bombers but I think they were the only ones I couldn't get in Colorado as far as bombers go. Singles were all pretty normal, nothing looked unusual to me.
Service was non-existant except for a lady brought me from wine there to beer since I was surprised it wasn't near by. But I didn't mind really.
Prices were normal.
They do have a great salad bar and other food, so maybe for that reason check out their beer and food if youre hungry.

Located across from northpark mall, kind of tucked away but definately worth finding. Whole foods is a fantastic grocery store, high quality fruits, veggies, meats etc. But most important is their beer and wine selection...incredible. They have two giant beer coolers filled with 500-600 types of beer. Imports, and tons of domestic craft. Good selection of singles as well as sixers. Beers that can be hard to find in texas can be found here. Even better, if you request a brew and it is distributed to Texas they will order it for you. Additionally they have a small instore bar area with four or five rotating taps. From what I understand they will soon be filling growlers. There is also a cafe where you can eat at the store. If you are in the area you must stop buy. Small premium on price but well worth it.
