    Does anyone know which Costco in the San Diego Area has a good selection of Craft beer? I will be in the area on Friday and I would love to visit one or two Costco's to buy Craft beer just for the price. I have seen that their prices are very low compared to other stores. Please provide info or suggest other stores that have good selection and good prices.

    i was at Costco Morena Valley yesterday. i quickly passed through and saw Chimay and Speedway Stout. they also had the ballast point variety packs and i'm pretty sure they had the normal stone ipa cases. i think they ran out of götterdämmerung, they did have that a few weeks ago.

    There is no Costco in Del Mar, and I've never seen a beer bar at any Costco. Yes, I know you confused it with "Whole Foods".

    From what I can tell, most of the San Diego area Costco stores carry similar beer choices. The OP should go to whatever stores are most convenient in his travels.

    Carlsbad is hit or miss. I've seen Port Wipeout bombers there before. But it's the usual suspects, Stone, Sierra and that Ballast Point mixed box

    I'd probably find out how many fit in a shopping cart at that price. #wow

    I think they are trying to clear out the remaining stock of Speedway.

    Those enormous (32 oz) cans of Shipwrecked IIPA seem dangerous.

    When prices end in with a 7, they are doing just that. Usually means that they will no longer be carrying that item. Stock up!

    For a while, at least. They like to mix it up.

    I bet we see Victory at Sea there around Christmas.

    tonight on the 10 o'clock news: a riot broke out at Poway Costco, after HeavySpeedway ignored the 50 bottle limit per person of Speedway stout.....

    Nah, don't have the money, as I just got a few more BASSes. Brown Paper Tickets for the win...

    Costco bought a boatload of Speedway late last spring, I think. What you are seeing now is the end of that purchase. Do you trust Costco to properly age your Speedway? I do (stouts are pretty durable and Costco pretty much air conditions everything), but it's food for thought.
