I love stopping by this place for lunch. Stonefired pizza after picking through their great beer selection.
Their service it pretty good. I had one of their employees asking me if I wanted something from the back storeroom. He explained people were walking out with the Kentucky breakfast stout. Of course I picked up a 4 pack.
The selection in this store is top notch. I don't see stacks of overpriced Euro pilsners.
Value is reasonable. They have an on sale rack between both coolers. Last month was Ommegang offerings. This month it Unibroue. About $1 off per 750ml.

I've been to Whole Foods many times now, and each time I go I become more impressed with their selection. They always seem to have a few new beers in stock every time I visit which is the main reason I prefer them over Anderson's. They have two fairly impressive coolers full of beer. One next to the wine section, and one in the back corner which is full of singles. Some of the brands they carry include: Stone, Alesmith, Rogue, Ommegang, Victory (including Old Horizontal), North Coast, Great Divide, Founder's (including their Imperial Stout and Kentucky Breakfast Stout), Three Floyd's and Allagash. They also have a great Belgian selection that includes: Rochefort, St. Bernardus, Tripel Karmeliet, Delerium, De Dolle, Rodenbach, Cantillon, Fantome, Kasteel, and De Ranke XX among others.
The service there is pretty good. There always seems to be a guy asking if I need any help. However I usually don't use his service since I always know what I want. The prices are pretty reasonable and are on par with the other stores in the area.
The last time I was there which was about two weeks ago I picked up the second to last four-pack of Kentucky Breakfast Stout, and a couple of Old Guardian bombers and left a very happy customer.
Overall I feel that the other reviews kind of underestimate how great this store is, which prompted me to write this review. This is definitely a must stop when in the Columbus area. And if you live in Columbus, be sure to stop in every few weeks to find some of the rare beers they get in every now and then.

Stopped in here with the family, and of course wanted to see what they had for beer. They actually have beer in three places: a small cooler near the deli, which also points one to the larger cooler near the middle of the store (near the wine), and some displays through-out the store at the end of aisles. It looks like they have 2 brews of their own (a 25 yr anniversay beer brewed by I don't recall, sorry, and another organic offering in a sixpack which I believe is brewed for them by Goose Island). We ended up buying a German Doppelbock I had never seen. A good over-all selection, the place is spotless, and the gentleman tending the area was friendly and took pride in his section.

Even though I didn't look around all that much, Whole Foods Market looks like a great place to shop for all kinds of exotic and not so exotic foods. I was there a few days before Christmas so the parking lot was packed and the store was bursting with bustling holiday shoppers.
The beer was easy to find in the front center of the store; I just followed the signs for wine, as always. They have a pretty good selection of American micros that I won't list in their entirety, but many of the best midwestern breweries are represented (Bell's, Great Lakes, Three Floyds) along with Victory, Great Divide, Avery, etc. All of the six-packs are on refrigerated shelves (think milk in a grocery store).
In addition, they also have a pretty good selection of singles: bombers of Stone, Alesmith and various Belgians and Germans. I picked up a few Belgians, a few organic ales that I haven't seen elsewhere and a single of Celebrator (a re-review is desperately needed).
All in all, Whole Foods has a pretty good selection at what seems like reasonable prices. It's nowhere close to a 'destination store' since nearly everything they carry (and much, much more) is available at several stores within the immediate vicinity. I'll probably make a return visit, but it'll be to check out the cheese, olives and other assorted food items.

It is definitely easy to find good beer in Northwest Columbus. This place just opened recently, and adds a new name to a growing list (Andersons, Wine Vault, Giant Eagle @ Perimeter Loop, Kenny Road Market).
The store is laid out as a grocery store, with the beer / wine in approximately the center. The beer selection is not quite as good as Kenny Rd or Andersons, but it does offer a few beers you can't find in the other locations.
Excellent selection of Belgians and American craft beers. I highly recommend a stop here.

Whole Foods Market is located in the Sun Shopping Center on the 161/Sawmill intersection. Lots of parking but they were still super busy a couple weeks after opening and it was a hike.
The store is large and as most people know is a natural/organic grocery store. The beer/wine area is in the middle of the store, and there is another cooler mostly of singles over in the area where you can buy hot food to eat on site.
The beer selection is pretty good. Lots of local/regionals from Bell's, GLBC etc plus a solid selection of other micros like Stone, Rogue, Victory etc. They also carry an exclusive organic beer from Goose Island called Lamar St. Pale Ale. Decent selection of imports too, including some Rochefort and other Belgians.
Service here is okay for a grocery store. Nobody really went out of their way to help but the staff is clearly well-trained and friendly.
It's pretty nice to have Whole Foods, Anderson's, Wine Vault and Trader Joe's all within 1/2 mile from each other - a beer lover could certainly do worse than Dublin these days.

Located in the old Big Bear store on Sawmill and 161. Tucked away behind Filene's Basement. This store is overwhelming as there is much more here than beer. They have all sorts of food, wine, as well as various foods that you can buy and eat right there. On to the more important stuff....the single selections is impressive. It has a nice variety of American craft beer as well as Belgians. They also have an open cooler with a nice variety of sixers. Also, there is another cooler at the far end of the store back by all the salad bar items. This is a great place to find some hard to find brews in Central OH. I found some Old Ruffian, some odd Belgians, and bombers of SN Pale Ale that I've never seen before. This is definitely the hidden gem of the store. Keith tells me they plan on expanding this too! Make sure you ask for Keith as he is the master mind behind the operations. Every time I drop in there he has something new or something that is new to me. He also schedules regular tasting which definitely helps the beer culture in this town. Keith is very friendly and helpful every time I go in. This is definitely an up and coming destination and a strong player in the Columbus area. A "must stop" if you are in the area.
