World Market has a nice selection of 12oz that you can mix into your own six pack, 22oz, and a selection of belgian style beers both large and small. Most are fairly standard NW fare but quite a few beers from the east coast and around the world. I once picked up a Chimay taster pack with a goblet for only $10. However, nothing is in any sort of cold storage and you really need to keep an eye on expiration and bottled on dates. BEWARE! You really roll the dice with any corked bottle they have. They are very attractively priced but I have bought a Delerium Tremans and a Victory Quad that tasted like they had been aged in an unairconditioned warehouse in the desert (they were only a year old). They were drinkable...as long as you just wanted them for the alcohol. They do also have some nice food offerings (mostly snacks) from around the world.

I had been to Cost Plus in the past and remembered them having a pretty good beer selection so I went back there today to see if that is still the case. I was not disappointed.

They are basically an import store, so they are not really focused on beer or other food items; that being said, they had a pretty good selection. I ended up buying a 4-brew Unibroue assortment, a lambic and an Indian lager, and that's pretty indicative of the kind of things they have. For imports, they are tilted toward Belgian and Belgian-style brews; for domestic, mostly local and regional craft brews (Seattle, Oregon, Northern California). They also tend to carry the multi-beer packs which are typically season-oriented gift-type packs. They carry none of the "American Megalager" type beers.

All of their beers are presented on shelves and not in refrigerated cases. If I were not kind of spoiled by the great selection at my local Central Market, this would be *the* place in this area to get craft and niche beers.

The Lynnwood branch of Cost Plus is one of the best I have visited. The quality of the beers they carry is average but you can find Rogue, Deschutes, Stone, and Victory here. Also Sierra Nevada, Hale's Ale's also are well stocked. The service here is average, you won't find beer experts here because it isn't really a beer store, more a store that sells beer. The selection is very good. I told you the beers you can find here, they also have a beer of the month club which is great, the cool thing is you can buy single beers here for about a buck a piece.
