Whole Foods Scottsdale Adds Beer Taps, Makes Grocery Shopping Bearable Again

​Grocery shopping sucks, but navigating crowds of mouth-breathers in narrow aisles can be made way more tolerable with the application of beer. It's why we dig the Whole Foods Market in Chandler, which -- despite its status as a fancypants, way-too-expensive grocery store -- has one of the best beer bars in the city.

No doubt hearing the cry of Scottsdalian shoppers, Whole Foods is adding a similar tap system to its Scottsdale location this week. The new array will feature 30(!) different brews, with an emphasis on local and hard-to-find stuff (a sneak peek: Delirium Tremens, Oskar Blues Ten FIDY, Lagunitas Undercover Shutdown and Papago Orange Blossom).

The remodeled bar is set to open with a bevy of celebratory events:

  • Thursday, 5:30-8:30 p.m. - Meet and Greet with local brewers
  • Friday, 5:30-8:30 p.m. - Local Social Gathering, a social gathering for locals complete with half-price local pints, a local tapas plate and live music
  • Saturday, 3-7 p.m. - Open House Reception, for which $10 gets you five beer samples, a pint glass and hors d'oeuvres 
  • Sunday, all day - All Star Special, when you get a hot dog or bratwurst and a pint for $6

It's enough to make us actually look forward to our next trip to the grocery store.
