Whoa...guess this means beer is finally hitting the big time.

Went into my local Costco today and for the first time I saw pallets and pallets of great beer. They've always had some variety cases and what not of microbrew, but now it's bottles of Chimay Duval, Firestone, Ommegang (3 bottles with their glass), Allagash, North Coast Brewing Brother Thelonius, etc. It was amazing.

Somebody from here get hired as their buyer?

I keep waiting for my Costco to get a better selection. We recently visited my wife's grandfather and he had picked up an awesome lambic variety pack from Costco. He's always getting something great there when he knows I'm bringing my beer over.

The costco's in the UK don't have any Belgian beers, and yet we are only about 70 miles from Belgium!

I lived in San Diego when Stone started testing out the market at Costco...guess this means they got some good results!

Just hit costco the other day before a B&B outing with my wife. i went in saying they never have pints of decent craft beer. Had to eat my words! Great surprise! I just see the market rapidly rapdly maturing. if you're still just focusing on the same ole Bud, coors crap your sales have to be suffering!

I picked up a really nice 24 multipack of Pyramid beers from Costco (Octoberfest, IPA, Wheat, Barleywine) last time I was there. They really have started to pick up on this trend.
