Was this 10 years ago? I live 5 minutes from Bob's Homebrew and it's closer to $2/lb for much of anything. That's if they even have it -- they're usually out of stock or very low, in my experience. I don't know exact prices off the top of my head but when I did the math I was saving almost 50% overall by driving to Kent. Does Bob even sell 50lb bags?
Larry's has the prices on their web site and they seem to have more stuff in stock in the warehouse (the place is huge!): http://www.larrysbrewsupply.com/catalog_c290104.html
Mountain Homebrew in Kirkland sells US 2-row for $55 for 50lbs (http://www.mountainhomebrew.com/grains.aspx?page=3
Cellar Homebrew in north Seattle sells US 2-row for $1.34/lb: http://www.cellar-homebrew.com/store/catalog/US-2-Row-Pale-Malt-19-21-L-p-72.html
Sound Homebrew in Georgetown sells it for $1/lb: http://www.soundhomebrew.com/2-row-brewers-malt-50-lb/
I doubt Bob is 10-30% cheaper than every other Seattle homebrew shop. If he is, he's doing a good job keeping it a secret because his web site doesn't show anything about his inventory.
