As someone before me mentioned, this is a Cost Plus like any other. The beer and wine are in the back, and they're divided into singles (mix your own 6) and 6ers, 4-pks and cases. A very important note here is that this World Market had the best selection of singles I've seen at any of these stores, and I've been to a lot of them. I picked up a few Great Lakes singles, some DFH, and there were plenty of others from Breckenridge, Bell's, Flying Dog, and many more. There were also some imported brews, including Weihenstephaner (I picked up some dunkel) and Unibroue. It's a decent place to mix a 6er, but be careful with the freshness dates. They're really mixed. Some of the Great Lakes was super fresh, and some DFH bottles were a few months old. I feel like this is often the case where fresh bottles are mixed in with old, but a good BA will be smart enough to look for bottling codes if they're printed.
Service was fine. The wine/beer buyer was unpacking cases of wine and asked immediately if I needed any help. He also offered up information on tastings that they do every Saturday(?).

If your not familiar with the Cost Plus World Market, they sell a wide range of items including household items, food, soda, glassware, wine, and plenty of good beer. It's a big store that is well kept up and with friendly service. I don't think they have anybody there that is knowledgeable of the beer that they sell. All of their beer is located down one aisle and at room temp. When I went today that had a wonderful selection of Belgians, other imports, and micros at good prices. I think I saw some imported macros like Corona and Heineken. If you want a macro, don't come here. They sell their beer by the six-pack, seasonal and import samplers, and singles (a flat rate for the singles). Their Belgian selection consisted of Orval, Gulden Drakk, La Chouffe, and a couple more. Thier imports and micros consisted of Celebrator, Rogue, Great Lakes, Stone, Traquair, Unibroue, Paulaner, Stone, Weihenstephaner, and plenty more that I forgot about. If your near the mall and want a bottle of good beer, then stop here, you won't be disappointed. This one is better than the one in near by Avon.
Edit: As of 4/27/2006 they now have Founders, plenty of Dogfish Head, and a couple of varities of Jolly Pumpkin. They really stepped up their beer selection with more Rogue Bombers and a much better single section. In fact, they have the usual single section and behind that one is the better single section, that consisted of Dogfish Head, Celebrator, Founders, 3 Floyds Alpha King, Jolly Pumpkin, and more quality brews like those.

I've been in 4 CPWMs now (Des Moines, Omaha, Columbus) and this one isn't really that different. Same general set-up, roughly the same merchandise and the beer selection varies by state depending on distribution (natch). This store is no more than one mile from my wife's parent's house and will probably become a regular stop on my trips back to Ohio.
I don't have a whole lot to say about this particular store, but one thing I did like was that they had Stone (IPA and Arrogant Bastard anyway) and, best of all, Great Lakes singles. Or should I say 'fresh' Great Lakes singles? I'll take this opportunity to complain about GL's dating practices. I had someone buy me a 4-pack of Nosferatu when it came out this fall. When I got to Ohio a few days ago, I noted that the beer had already 'expired'. I put that in parentheses because how is it possible for a strong ale as hoppy as Nosferatu to be 'good' for only 2 months? Ridiculous.
Anyway, back to the task at hand. I'm more impressed by the selection at this particular Cost Plus since I live in Iowa and can't get Stone or Great Lakes. For those who live in the area, I'm sure there are much better places to stock up on beer. If your interests run more toward tea, chai, etc, that's a different matter entirely. Chaiadvocate.com...hmmm.
