Well this is a grocery store so only certain things can be expected.

Quality is very very good for a grocery stuff. They have very limited quantities but the they have good Belgians, good Americans and pretty good British stuff. They also have some nice local stuff. A nice even split of good sixers and pretty good bombers.

Service is very good. Both times I've been here I was offered help by the same employee who was very nice, helpful and suggested a greta DIPA when I asked. A in my book.

Prices are right.

Not much to say for atmosphere. It's a grocery store and it's busy. Really not a great vibe for beer shopping but convenient if you are there grocery shopping (I was not).

No problems with quality, everything in the joint seems fresh and with the high volume of people they have relatively quick turnover of products.

Can't speak about service really as I don't require much help. A young guy did ask if I was doing alright though so I suppose that counts as positive.

The selection is ok. The bottle selection is a little disjointed as most lines they carry aren't complete. I found a few things of interest but kept wanting one step more. It was exciting to see certain lines there, but disappointing again when I'd see only a few options.

Overall it's a decent place. I would revisit if I were in the area but I wouldn't go out of my way.

Obvisously this is a large chain store, but they do have a very solid beer selection. Prices are reasonable to maybe a touch on the high side. From a selection standpoint, they have most of the popular craft brews and certainly a great selection of local ones if you're from out of town and looking for those. They do get some of the speacial, limited beers, and I've had some great luck finding stuff here when others were sold out, so much so that I call them after my fisrt go to is sold out. I've gotten BCS Vanilla, Charleville Box of Chocolate, and Firestone Walker Parabola all here.

This Whole Foods has a selection like just about every other Whole Foods- which is to say, pretty solid. Good mix of locals, American, and foreign craft stuff. This is actually the #1 Odell acount in the area, so good spot for their stuff. The service here is always awesome; as soon as I come over to look at something, there's always someone to help me. Andy is now overseeing wine but he's been the beer guy here and is a super nice dude who really knows his stuff. It's Whole Foods, so the food costs a ton but the beer here is right in line with prices in the rest of the area.

As most reviewers have said, this is a pretty good place to get beer even though it is a grocery store. The selection is a little limited by space, but what they have is good. Nothing there really surprised me except a sixer of Lamar St (a Goose Island created brewed specifically for Whole Foods). They had some nice bombers and 750s of good stuff. Also, had some nice Belgians. One can also assume that most of the stuff is pretty fresh, since grocery stores have pretty good turnover (plus the place was very busy). I've seen grocery stores with larger selections, but the ratio of high quality craft brew was still pretty impressive. It's worth a stop if you wife has dragged you to go shopping at the many stores in the area.
