Stopped in here for the first time a few nights ago. The five Spencer's Fresh Markets have gained a nice reputation in the central coast beer community, and I've been told that this Atascadero location has the best beer selection of the bunch.

The Atascadero store is much smaller than the San Luis Obispo location. The entire beer selection is crammed into a single aisle to the left of the registers (upon entering). Unlike the SLO store, more than half of the bottles aren't refrigerated, and the rest sit in a grab-and-go deli cooler. Those things aside, the beer selection is impressive. I spotted lots of high quality west coast micro-brews, along with a smattering of English, German, and Belgian ales. Of note, I spotted Firestone 14, La Folie, and Hairy Eyeball.

Keep in mind that Spencer's Fresh Markets is a grocery store, but it offers a solid beer selection and reasonable prices. Hit this up if you're in the area for an extended stay.
