While not overwhelmingly huge, Cost Plus World Market (this location anyway) has a commendable selection of beer. While most of it is from macro-micros, you can't complain to loudly about being able to pick up stuff like Stone, Rogue, SN, Lost Coast, Chimay, Youngs, Boddingtons, Guinness, etc. They've also got those variety 10 packs with a theme like "Summer Brews" or "Beer Around the World" at $11-12. You're not going to find anything rare here, but if you want an old familar tasty treat and you're in the neighborhood, CPWM will have something for you.

Just a quick note on the service, since I rated it below average. Most of the clerks here are teens or college students. They move like snails, they're not interested in helping you and they probably couldn't even if they were. At least that's the way it's been recently. Hopefully when they graduate UCSB the new crop will be better.
