Can't really recommend this WFM over other locations, it's pretty average compared to others in the chain. If you live in the area, and are already here for groceries, it's a good place to grab a six pack.

What was most disappointing was the size and scope of the beer selection, pretty much what you'd find at any WFM location. Beer was sequestered in a tiny corner cooler, hidden from the rest of the store, and 1/4th the size of the wine section. It was a bit awkward stuck in the corner, sort of a "one person at a time" layout. A guy was stocking the coolers at the time, which made it harder to get to the beer. He confirmed that they only have six packs, no bombers or singles here. A couple minikegs and Goose Belgian samplers were in the cooler behind the deli counter, which speaks to how little space is devoted to beer here.

Quality selections, Metropolitan, Bells, Goose IPA, St. Bernardus, Duvel, several from Victory, 3-4 Founders including Curmudgeon. Maybe 50-60 beers in all.

There's a 2nd Evanston south location at 1111 Chicago Ave., that may have a larger selection than this one, meanwhile go to EV1 instead.
