I'm in Chicago and my LBHS is pretty cheap, I feel. I pay about $1.50-$2.00 per lb for base malts (less in bulk) and $2.00-$3.00 for specialty malts. Hops average maybe $2.50/oz for leafs or pellets.

My average grain bill is maybe $25-$30 for a 5 gal batch. Figure 5-7 lb base, 3-5 lbs specialty, a couple oz hops, and yeast. That's with our crazy taxes too. LHBS gives a 10% discount if you belong to a registered homebrew club.

They keep a mill in store and you can mill your own grains. The crush is a little loose, but I just run them through twice because I do it myself and it's free!

Added bonus, they usually have 3-5 homebrew beers on tap that you can taste while looking around or being rung up or milling (or all of the above, because the beer is free too)

Group buys. Brew club places one big order (like 2-3 pallets worth), has a freight carrier drop it off at a loading dock, and everyone grabs their order.

I guess I have good. Lhbs sells 50lb sacks of 2row for $39 and specialty grains for $1.75. They also have good hop prices $1.25 for basics like cascade, northern brewer etc. and $2.25 for the hard to come by varieties Amarillo, simcoe, citra.
