This Whole Foods, located on 4th and Harrison, has a surprisingly great beer selection. Almost all of the beer is kept cold, and the cold shelf is enormous. Stone, Deschutes, North Coast, Anchor, Firestone Walker and Lagunitas are well represented here, amongst many other locals. I've found many a limited release here, including all of the Firestone anniversary ales. Nice variety of imports too, with one of the bigger selections of lambic and gueuze I've seen at a grocery store (though it seems to be dwindling as of late). Prices are standard, I've never seen anything marked up here. Well worth a stop, and not far from City Beer.

A pretty damn good beer selection, especially for a grocery store. It's easily the best beer selection I've seen in a Whole Foods. A great selection, lots of local stuff (including 7 Russian Rivers), Belgians and other imports. Plenty of stuff that would definitely be considered rare and hard to find. Everything is in a cooler and they sell singles. I was also struck by some low prices, something you almost never see at Whole Paycheck. For example Rochefoft 8 was $4.99 which is 50 cents cheaper than Bevmo.

This whole foods in downtown San Francisco (SoMa) had the best beer selection of any supermarket in the city! The selection is always very fresh and it rotates quite frequently as well. The beer guy here is pretty good and open to ordering suggestions and the prices are on the low side of things for a Whole Foods store...the wine selection is also killer here as welll, and I highly suggest checking this whole foods out when you are in the area...if you can't find everything you are looking for at the specialty beer stores in town...Na Zdrowie !
