I live in Santa Rosa and did not know the WF carried homebrew supplies. I assume the Coddingtown store since it has the bar. I will have to go visit!!!

Tyler is cool as well. My wife can't figure out why our grocery bill there suddenly skyrocketed

HB, talked to the guy behind the bar and he said he just helped set it up.. I think he did a great job.. especially for a start. Lot of different grains for a good price.. Ya need a miller for them.. but the price is not bad. The BB kits seem pretty well priced compared to some I've seen on line. Also, I bought an Autosiphon and floating thermometer cheaper than I've seen elsewhere.

I wish the LHBS was more competitive.. I'd rather support them.

whole foods is hands down the most expensive grocery store in my area and maybe the country, even they don't deny it. my wife shops there because she likes to buy organic and they do have beautiful produce, meats and fish. i don't care where she shops or that they are expensive i was just stating the obvious.

Just got back from WF is Folsom, CA... All 27 gains sell for $1.25/lb and there is a mill to use. White Labs vials in the cooler with hop union packs. And there is a beer garden out front with gas heaters.

I never thought I would say "honey, can I please go with you to the grocery store"!.

I just snagged 3 gross of bottle caps that were mis-priced. 2.89/gross for Oxygen Absorbing Caps.. Wow.. they would still have been cheap at the regular price of 3.99.

:O Any Texans care to report on brewing supplies at our Whole Foods? I would think the one on Lamar in Austin would be the vanguard of such things. I know they have the taps and growler fills but brew supplies???

Then again AHS probably beats them out and it wouldn't make much sense to try and compete. Or would it? I suppose with the right pricing at WF it might just make a little sense.

The Whole Foods in NYC on Bowery is very solidly priced. Carry about 20-25 grains base and specialty. Very large hop selection pellet and Whole leaf. The pellet is $1.50 an oz. Nice yeast selection and some fairly hard to locate strains. Not a huge selection of equipment but they have everything you need to make a solid beer and they have a mill as well.

I've been looking all over online but for basic supplies its far cheaper especaly considering shipping.

Thy also carry bottles 12 and 22s for about 50c-$1 a piece

Ohio's a little slow on the uptake of...well about everything. Our WF on the north side of Cincinnati just got the Brooklyn Brew Shop kits and wing style cappers. That's all so far. Well we do have a bar and growler station.

We have a WF in OKC now. No High point beer, no wine, no brewing supplies that I have heard of.

It's little more than a "hippy" grocery store.
