Whole Foods, the giant natural / organic grocery store w/HQ in Texas, offers up a steady diet of seasonals, local fare and international best-of's year - round.

Now you just can't beat that for a "super" market.

The beer buyers are almost always available anytime a question arises and they love to and most surprisingly (for any store!) take the time to talk beer...that is, if you can pry them away from the distributors...because distributors are always around, like pilot fish with a shark. They want their brews displayed prominently but only so many can be. So, you're basically on your own when it comes to deciding & buying. Hang around the beer bin long enough, and some suds lover will most surely show up and be more than happy to help with a decision. A coupla of times, the store personnal has asked me...well, requested actually that I cease and desist. Once I was thrown...

Whole Foods beer-heads try to be fair but certain brews are always out front; IPA's usually (our so-called NW style brew) and then Washington / Oregon / Alaska brewers with a few California big boys (Laguinitas in Petaluma, Stone in Escondido come to mind) trailing behind. Dogfish Head also appears to have captured their attention as well.

Regardless of what brew is out front, there's plenty here to satisfy any beer novice, geek or nazi.
