After entering the store, look for the wine department. Then turn around and you will see beer department number one. It consists of a row of coolers filled with 6 packs and a shelf on the end with singles. The selection here is very nice. They also stock several organic beers which I have not noticed in other places.
Then, it is time to move on the beer department number two. This is more towards the back right of the store and consists of cold singles. There is a very decent selection in this area as well. As I was shopping the cold singles area I did notice that they sell singles of Pabst Blue Ribbon which I found odd and comical at the same time.
Most of the typical breweries are represented in the store somewhere. Quality is great. I did not see an employee of the store anywhere around the beer sections. Since I had no need for assistance, I would prefer that I don't have someone falling over me trying to help. This is a regular beer stop for me.
What I walked away with:
Le Coq Stout (brewed in 2003)
Sierra Nevada Harvest Ale
Hoppin Frog BORIS the Crusher

This place has an excellent selection for a grocery store. Although located nearby to The Anderson's store (which has a bigger selection), this WF has a ton of foot traffic, which leads one to believe that anything bought would be fresher and priced to move. The beer is spread throughout the store, with separate coolers dedicated to local beers, singles/bombers, and six/twelve packs. I had the opportunity to visit during one of the Monday night tastings, and really enjoyed the ambiance and access to great food (try the pizza). The beautiful thing about this place is that you can buy you beer and consume it on premise (just ask for glassware), which makes for the best grocery shopping experience I've ever had!

Once in a while Ill stop back in this location on my way to The Anderson's which is right near there.
This is quite typical of all Whole Food's Ive ever been to. Beer selection is great for a grocery store. They have a nice selection of larger format beers. Ive seen 750mls of St Bernardus for example.
Service is thin, but its mostly a grocery store so what do you expect? I dont typically need any service anyway.
I only really stop here to supplement a trip to The Anderson's, and with The Anderson's hugely expanded selection I dont really have a need for this location anymore.

Located in a busy strip mall area of Dublin, this store is a great stop for foodies and beer geeks alike. While they may not have the rarest of rare available around here, they have a solid, fresh selection of craft beer.
The beer is spread through three different areas in the store. When you enter, to the left with the vegatables is a selection of localy produced Ohio beer, stored cold. In the center of the store is the largest selection of beer, col-located with the wine. Most of this is stored cold, with some of the big bottles at room temp. Finally, to the right with the restaurant portion of the store is a medium selection if singles. While there is some overlap, make sure you look at each area for the full scope of what is carried.
Rotation seems to be pretty well handled here, so I don't think freshness is an issue. In addition, there is typically someone manning the counter in the center beer/wine section that at least knows what the store carries, if not more. They also occcasionally have reps from breweries or distributirs in here pouring samples for a nominal fee.
All in all, a great stop to pick up beer and the associated artisinal food that goes so well with it.

This is a great store to find a wide variety of great beers ales and wines from around the world. -
If it's a hard to find item try here first - Odds are they will have it.
You can buy singles and or six packs and pint's - I buy single beers as a way to try and rate different brews - I call it a hobby -
- their selection is awesome and always changing with the seasons -
Summer ales - Winter lagers - and everything in between - Even has Delirium Noel during the season -
great prices compared to specialty beer stores

One of my go to stores in the Columbus area, along with the Andersons and From the Vine. Usually carry a decent and up to date selection of craft and import six packs and singles in two separate sections. I've found some rarer releases in here as well and they occasionally have a great selection of Cantillon as well. I often times can't get any service in the department though and prices are usually on the higher side. I do find the occasional deal there though, one time snagging Old Rasputin XII for $9.99! Definitely stop by if you're in the area to check out the selection, good for central Ohio.

A few things to start off with. Their is three areas you need to know about. All local ohio beers are in a cooler to the left of the entrance past the produce. All 6-12pks and seasonal packs plus their good euro selection is in the middle of the store with the wine selection. Single bottles and bobmers are mostly located in the back right of the stoor. If you do not like hippies you might not like this place as all of the employees look like they just got out of woodstock.
Quality--Store is clean, bottles are all in nice condition. Whole foods seems to move bottles fast because their selection is always fresh which i am sure all the hop heads appreciate.
Service- Corey is the main beer guy at the store and is very helpfull. My guess he has tried every beer their and is more then happy to have a beer chat. My guess is they wont order beer for you since they are corporate but you can always suggest something.
Selection-Their selection is very nice, they usualy stock all the seasonals as they come out. It seems though limited their euro selection is nice, they seem to have a decent amout of cantillion that a friend of mince was excited about. Their Bobmer selection is week though and pales in comparrison to Kennys.
Value--They are pricey but not too bad. Their singles are priced fair but some of the 6 pks are 50c-$1 more. My suggestion would be to go across the street to Andersons if you are looking for a seasonal's as they might be cheaper. Any year round offer i would stick with whole foods though even if it is $1 more as i would gladly pay more for something that is 2-6 months fresher.
