Beer and Food at Whole Foods Gowanus

By Eric Sturniolo   Three heirloom tomatoes.  One bushel of kale.  Four amazing beers fresh from the tap.  That was my day (minus the tomatoes and kale; I can’t cook) at the new Whole Foods in Gowanus, Brooklyn.  In the huge, shiny store, I focused on the beer and the cafe. To start your beer…

Lunch (one of our favorite beers ever).  But little did he know that I was EVEN…
