Whole Foods is nicely located on South Brentwood Boulevard, easily accessable from I-64 (east or west). Each of my visits to Whole Foods have come at different days/times, and I must say that they are a busy place! Whole Foods is one of those organic/natural food superstores, and while you are there, you should browse the different varities of food products available.
Quality. The beer selection here is limited, but nice. You certainly will not find any macro-stuff here! They have a great selection of Bell's (5-6 types, 6ers), Arcadia, ODell and New Belgium. They also carry Unibroue, Rogue, North Coast, La Chouffe, Goose Island, Dupont and of course Schlafly. Prices seem to be a bit high.
Service. Did not see anyone nor was I offered help, but didn't need any either. Nothing wrong here.
Selection. As mentioned above, selection is a bit limited, yet they carry some things that I have not spotted in other stores, which makes this worthy of stopping in every month or so. The Bell's selection makes this a no-brainer for me, as Whole Foods is the closest location for us Illinois-deprived-Bell's lovers.
Bottom line--a decent enough variety to stop in, but not something to go out of your way.

After reading the buzz regarding Whole Foods, I had to make a stop in and check it out. I was in late on a Friday, and didnt get to meet Andy darn the luck.
Its a little disconcerting to make your way through a huge supermarket, in search of beer. But I found the smallish (Id estimate a 8 x 20 refrigerated section) area of beer towards the back and in the middle. I was offered a wine taste, uh, no thanks.
The entire store is upscale, bright and clean, and most beer prices were OK. Fairly easy access, as the store is in the first mall area after you exit 40/64 highway on Brentwood. Central location in STL is another plus

I have been unbelievably remiss in reviewing Whole Foods, but a last minute dash to pick up lunch, and some Thanksgiving necessities allowed me buy some beer and visit with the beer manager Andy. He's working hard to get everything he can for his limited shelf space, and he's doing a fine job. Loads of Bells, O'Dell, New Belgium, Schlafly,and a nice selection of specialty 750ML and bombers, both domestic and imported. These include Rogue, North Coast, LaChouffe, and DuPont. Pricing is a little high, but he does a nie job of rotating his stock, and moving older beer off the shelves. Andy is knowledgeable, friendly,a nd wants to sell more beer. So St. Louis BAs, we need to do our part too. Oh yeah, he has the new Goose Island IIPA, and Bourbon County Stout, and is getting a good shipment of Hopslam. You go Andy!.

I really enjoy coming to whole foods to buy beer because i can also get good food here too, and nothing is better than good beer and good food. Bottles are well taken care of and stock rotated very accordingly. Nothing goes bad here because andy doesnt let it. Great selection of seasonals. Andy knows his shit and gets his hands on hard to find goods, period. Mike also has much knowledge of beer, definitely a man to talk to about homebrew. Great selection, and the best prices you'll see in the area much less St. Louis.

Small but tight selection, wide range of bell's, most everything kept cool and stock rotates frequently. Andy, the beer manager (a BA) does a good job of bringing in anything new and interesting that comes into town. There are a few beers off the shelf that you need to ask for, so ask if they've got anything special.
Only problem I have with the place is a general lack of lagers. That's hardly unique to this place, so I can't really complain.
All in all, a nice stop if you're in Central St. Louis County and don't want to stop at that other place near by.

This is my third re-review of this store, as the beer section seems to be in an almost continuous state of flux.
The cold beer is one half of one side of an aisle. Selection is back on the upswing, after bottoming out about a year ago. Lots of Bell's (the seasonals as well as the regulars), locals Schlafly and O'Fallon, and a nice mix of U.S. micros and imports. The selections seem to change with the seasons, and they are once again getting some nice Belgian and German stuff. The beers on special are stacked on the floor in big displays. I have not purchased any of these, so don't know if the warm storage has any ill effects.
The store has removed its warm shelf, and the overall selection is still not what it once was, but great strides are being made. The beer manager is implementing an expanded selection "in the back" with a list posted in the beer area. The first sheet is up now, and plans to afoot to continue to increase this selection, including past vintages of cellar-worthy beers.
The beer manager Andy (BA sneagrams3) is a very passionate guy, who is genuinely excited about beer and his selection. Very helpful and fun to talk with.

A grocery store with a decent selection, most of the beer is kept cold, I did see some 750 ml bottles in crates on the floor and an O'fallon pumpkin ale display between the aisle. They seem to have a good stock of Bell's, New Belgium, Schlafly and a few other domestic micros as well as imports and some nice Belgians. I wouldn't go out of my way to get beer here, but they do have a nice selection for a grocery store. Their prices are about average for this area. I always seem to pick up something when I shop here.
