This store should realize that craft beer is growing strong, because they get a lot of guys dragged in there by their wives, and where do we go, the beer isles. just an isle set up. could be laid out a little better. good beer selections and they offer some good deals here and there.

Cost Plus, like Trader Joe's, is a big yuppie-oriented chain that happens to carry craft beers. It's popping up everywhere. Selection is decent, with some good micros (Two Brothers, Bell's...) and the usual import suspects (Moretti, Sapporo...) as well a beer of the month that is usually pretty nice. There's an okay selecton of singles, so you can mix your own six-pack. One thing that deserves mention is their assortment of sampler packs. "American Craft Beers," "Beers of the World" and "Summer Brews" have some good (and sometimes rare) stuff, but god knows how long those things sit on the shelves. I have seen bottles in those packs that were over a year past their freshness dates. Be sure to check them all before you buy.
