San Francisco Conquests

The Whole Foods near my house has an incredible beer selection.  In fact, they have an employee whose only job is to find beers for their beer selection.  He even has his own Facebook page, often updated several times a day with new offerings and the like.

So when I learned that Whole Foods is in California as well, I was very excited--there are lots of beers that just can't be found on the East Coast.  I was a little disappointed in their selection; I think it paled in comparison.  Still, when you've got Pliny the Elder on the shelf it's hard to complain.

Beers I brought back:
  • Firestone Walker's Walker's Reserve
  • Delerium Tremens
  • Weihenstephaner
  • Tripel Karmeliet
  • Russian River's Pliny the Elder (two bottles)
  • Trappistes Rochefort 8 (I can get it here, but it was available)
  • Firestone Walker's Wooky Jack
  • Stone's Imperial Russian Stout
I'm glad to say that they all survived the plane ride intact.
