I love Whole Foods but I was not impressed by this particular location's selection. All this place had going for it was the growler station. The rest was blah. Definitely nothing special and nowhere close to the selection at BevMo or Total Wines. If you're looking to shop for some healthy food and feel like grabbing some cold standard craft offerings then enjoy. Otherwise, not a place for the beer nerds.

Whole Foods is one of my favorite places to go while in NE Scottsdale area. I always receive exceptional service while at the bar; it's never too crowded and typically I am very happy with their draft selection. Food is always made fresh, made to order or made in a convenient serving size.

This Whole Foods does something that I am very picky about and it's serving as few beers as possible that are NOT from Arizona. I love AZ and the growing passion for craft beer but am always happier to get to try brews from around the Nation.

Party at the grocery store....Where else can you select a pint from 28 tap handles and grab practically anything you want to eat. Very clean environment, friendly staff....Great selection of bottled beers from US craft beers to some great Belgians...Their draft selections feature a lot of local breweries as well as some hard to find beers like Samichlaus which was just on tap. Whether you are a local or from out of town, it is worth a stop in. Believe it or not it is a fun activity to sit on a bar stool and watch people grocery shop. This is one of my favorite stops....

I like Whole Foods. It's out there. Now, this one does not have the selection that I like to see. In other areas of the country, Whole Foods has impressed me with the breadth of their beer selection, but I was not too pleased with this one. I asked an associate a beer question and was stared at rather incredulously, which is always nice. The selection of singles was really paltry (Bud Light, Bud Light Lime, a sorghum beer, and Heineken?) and the imports were really weak. I'm sticking to A.J.'s from now on.

One of the newest and cleanest Whole Foods in the Valley. Beer selection is above average as far as Whole Foods go, and unfortunatley they did not have draft beer available at the time of my visit in Summer 2008.

Beer is located in the western portion of the store adjacent to the fine cheese selection. Prices are slightly high for most beers, but nearly everything was refrigerated and all was fresh in terms of bottle dating (from the ones I inspected).

Located in the parking lot shared with Gordon Biersch.
