For the shelf space allocated, the selection here is pretty good. A range of domestic craft brews and imports. Probably better on the domestics than the imports, upon reflection.

What I really like about this place is the beer manager. I chatted with him this evening and he said that, unlike most Whole Foods, they invite patrons to break sixers as they encourage sampling. How great is that? Plus, he's a hophead and very knowledgeable.

While the selection may be a bit smaller than Vienna, I'll return here whenever I'm in the area as I really like the opportunity to buy individual bottles.

Sizeable beer selection in the back corner of the store. Numerous domestic micro six-packs in a cooler, along with some import sixers and a few larger single bottles. Singles rack for micros is a nice touch (bottles are $1.49 each). About a fifty foot section of the back wall is stacked with sixers and many hard-to-find singles, like Russian River and Bear Republic, as well as Belgians and east coast breweries. Compared to my hometown Whole Foods (which, to be fair, has much less floor space), this is amazing. I'm quite impressed.

Not quite as large a selection as the store in Clarendon and blown away by the Vienna location, but you'll not be disappointed by the selection in the least. The local biggies all make an appearance: Dogfish Head, Victory, Old Dominion, Troegs, etc. Good import and West Coast selection as well, but there's more of an emphasis on the regional goodies. Prices are reasonable, with some beers being placed on sale for really great prices (and not because they are old either). The current beer manager for the store, Jeff, is an incredibly friendly guy and will bend over backwards to get what you want (and without you asking him to).

Select singles are available, but I'm not certain if breaking of all 6ers are allowed.
