I don't think all WF's carry brewing eqpt or have a beer bar.

No beer bar at the Whole Foods here in Jacksonville, Florida. They did have a pretty decent selection of bottled craft beers though.

There are only 3 WF that have a tap room. New York Chi Town and Santa Rosa. I think that is it. I do not know how many of them carry brewing supplies but I thing only a handful.

Their site says we have one in Cleveland,on Cedar Rd in University heights. They have 6 beers on tap daily,& growlers to fill. Guess I'll have to get over their when my car gets done.

The North avenue/Kingsbury (close to Goose Island Clybourn) is the one chicago store with a bar. I think there are plans to put one in South Loop (Roosevelt and Canal), where I work. Last I looked Kingsbury had star san, a bottler, some caps, and some mini grain kits. Small selection, I bet it's just for the holidays.

The WF in Plymouth Meeting, PA has a wine and beer bar, which is extra strange, because PA has all kinds of crazy rules about selling alcohol. They sell growers of their beers on tap. IIRC, half of them are usually from the Manayunk Brewery. I have never seen brewing supplies in a WF though...

all the nyc locations have growlers refills, which is what the bowery location has (it's just the fanciest looking). the columbus circle location has a bar now.

The bowery location carries homebrew supplies. I went there over a year ago and bought 30 pounds of grains. Then got dopey drunk and left it all on the bus. At the time they didn't carry yeast, and only had pre measured bags of grain. They now have measurable grain, yeast, and a better supply of ingredients, from what i've read. They also have a great inventory if beer. They do tastings about once a week and some good breweries. Their facebook page usually has some good info, when they update it

We do all our shopping at WF and find that if you are buying organic it is cheeper to shop WF and as for brewing supplies they are cheeper than LHBS. If I want to buy a six pack than Safeway is better but as for produce I find that I toss more spoiled produce from Safeway that WF. It is a better quaility and lasts longer. If you compare prices on most items you will be surprised.
