anyone know what these are exactly? they are 5 bucks and the topics are like "Stone Brewing " and "pumpkin ales"

the selection of beers at the local whole foods is ridiculous. its pretty mind boggling.

sounds from your description like a basic introduction to craft brew.

Nope, but you'll probably get more than $5 worth of beer tasters. Enjoy.

Damn you, Pennsylvania, and your outdated, Puritanical liquor laws.

Whole Foods in Pittsburgh is supposed to be getting license. Giant Eagle has beer. But you are right. I was at a bottle shop in Ohio this weekend and was shocked by how cheap the prices where comparatively.

Wegman's and Whole Foods now sell single bottles, six-packs, make your own six packs, 12 packs, etc. The beer distributors sued them last winter and lost.

In case anyone doesn't know, only licensed beer distributors can sell beer by the case in PA and they have terrible hours...until recently, they couldn't be open on Sundays. No beer sales in grocery stores or convenience stores either. You can buy up to a 12-pack at restaurants with seating. But since Wegman's and Whole Foods sell food and have seating, they got in through the restaurant loophole.

Yeah, my local Whole Foods has a Tap House and a homebrew supply isle. They keep a great list of local and not so local beers on tap. Also my local club had two brewers compete in the GABF Pro-Am and the Whole Foods picked up a keg of each and had a release/tasting party. Pretty awesome.

The whole food in Manhattan has homebrewing gear.

Manhattan’s first homebrew shop opens at Whole Foods Bowery Beer Room



For years, Manhattan’s homebrewers had to venture far off the island in order to get homebrew supplies. It wasn’t long ago that they had to go to the outer reaches of Queens just to pick up a packet of hop pellets. Then came Brooklyn Brew Shop, Brooklyn Homebrew, and The Brooklyn Kitchen, small businesses that brought supplies within reach with a subway ride. But now, Manhattanites won’t even have to venture off the island, as the Whole Foods Bowery Beer Room at the corner of Houston and Chrystie has rolled out their new homebrew department.
