The Whole Foods store on Brentwood is a regular beer stop for me. The bottles are never out-of-date, dusty, or skunked. A majority of the beers are in the cooler while the bombers, foreign beers, and special beers are on shelves.
Service has never been a problem. Help is usually available to answer any questions.
The selection is healthy but not huge. Domestically, you'll find a wide range of Bell's, Goose Island, Great Divide, New Belgium, Sierra Nevada just to name a few. The selection of Belgians includes Chimay, Rochefort, Duvel, Houblon Chouffe, and St. Bernardus. You'll also find beers from Germany, Canada, and Japan if you so desire.
Prices are on par with others in the St. Louis market.

This Whole Foods has a selection like just about every other Whole Foods- which is to say, pretty solid. Good mix of locals, American, and foreign craft stuff. This is actually the #1 Odell acount in the area, so good spot for their stuff. The service here is always awesome; as soon as I come over to look at something, there's always someone to help me. Andy is now overseeing wine but he's been the beer guy here and is a super nice dude who really knows his stuff. It's Whole Foods, so the food costs a ton but the beer here is right in line with prices in the rest of the area.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The best beer stop I have found in St. Louis. If you have the time, the staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. Sometimes, if you talk a little, there are goodies in the back that they will bring out if you know what you are talking about (Bell's Two Hearted minikeg). I have always found them to be a great resource. Their beer selection is also very good. I have found most things that I am looking for that I can get in St. Louis. I have been turned on to some really good beers by the staff of this place. And when you are done they have some good food too. My only gripe would be that things are a little over priced, but its an organic grocer in a large midwestern city dominated by Anheuser-Busch(...)
