Our Fearless Beer Correspondent Reports from Miramar Beach

At the Destin Whole Foods, this includes what is probably the best beer selection of any chain grocery store in the local area. For starters, Whole Foods has managed to magically pack a mind-blowing number of cans, bottles, singles, sixers and special holiday value packs in a not-so-big portion of the store’s rear aisle...
