Stopped in here earlier this morning for some supplies for the apartment while we are in town. Didn't even think about the beer until I saw it and I was pleasantly surprised with the selection. They had a nice selection of beers from all over Cali and even the country / world. I was surprised to find a Hangar 24 Barrel Roll No. 3 on the shelf so I picked up the last one. Really wanted to try the cans from Pizza Port but we will be going there in a week or so so I passed on them. Quality seemed pretty high. I didn't see any out of date bottles and they had a few glasses on offer as well. Service was decent. I was asked if I needed help by a random worker but that was it, not a huge deal tho as I didn't need any help. Standard grocery store bottle shop atmosphere, again no big deal. Prices were on par with all of the other grocery store beer stops I have come across. Overall a really nice find, glad I stopped in here for supplies rather than the other store a block away.

Typical Whole Foods in terms of beer. Most everything is refrigerated, but there are some beers here and there that sit out warm. Service has been pretty good, and some of the staff know their beer. Selection is solid for the area.

This is my "local" Whole Foods, been here 100+ times. The beer selection here used to be pretty pedestrian especially with regards to the Tustin location, but the divide has clearly lessened over the past year.

Pretty much all craft beer, 80% refrigerated. They've got the standard San Diego stuff - Stone, Ballast Point, Green Flash, along with Alpine Pure Hoppiness which I hope they will carry for quite some time. Good selection of Ommegang (lots of hard to find specialty stuff - Biere de Mars/Adoration), The Bruery, Jolly Pumpkin, and St. Somewhere. They've got all the major Samuel Smith's selections as well. A good spot for Russian River, today I saw Blind Pig and Consecration, they've also had Damnation and PtE here in the past.

Service is fine, I've never been helped per se, but I've never asked, and I really don't need it. The quality of the bottled beers have been fine. With the BevMo across the street, there's a great two shop stop just over the county line on PCH.
