Not all of them do. They are strategically placed to compete with HBS's, and as far the the one in Santa Rosa, it blows the Beverage People away on bulk grain prices. Check around. It may be something that they are willing to order for you if they don't carry a stock.

Bomber, what other brewing grains do they sell?

.35 x 1 = .35
2 oz cascade (aroma and flavor)
2 x .62 = 1.25
Washed yeast or yeast from the brewery = free

$9.35
80% efficiency gives me 1.055
$35 a sack for 2-row
$10 a lb for hops through Niko

18 a beer, it can be done. Shoot, I could even splurge on hops and make it an IPA and keep it under 11 bucks.
I stand corrected. Where are you getting base malt for $.70 per pound???

They have the basic lineup - all the crystals, all the darks, common stuff like Munich and Vienna and maybe a few specialties like Aromatic and maybe a Cara or two. In bulk they sell a cheap two row, Rahr, MO, white wheat, German and Belgian pils, and probably a couple others. They actually do pretty good.

See above. Also, I am on no way claiming that my typical batch costs so little

Right sure. But making drinkable beer at that price is something.

Wish the whole foods down here carried grain at that price! I can't find anything under $50 a sack.
