The Costco Liquor Cabinet: A Costco Alcohol, Wine, & Beer Price List (2022)

Costco has long been known for selling bulk quantities of high quality foods and other consumables at discount prices. And those discounts are even sweeter when they are packaged with the Costco store brand – Kirkland Signature. As a decade-plus Costco customer and occasional beer, wine, and spirits consumer (responsibly and in moderation, of course), I had always found the Costco liquor selection to be somewhat under-developed over the years. Fortunately, for frugal drinkers, that is no longer the case.

I have been pleasantly surprised to see that Costco has built out its Kirkland Signature liquor selection. In fact, it is now one of the benefits that makes Costco membership worth the cost for me. And I can always get a membership fee refund, if it’s not worth it.

What kind of alcohol does Costco sell? Unfortunately, there is (was) really no easy way to find out online what alcohol Costco sells and how much it costs. If you Google search for “Costco alcohol”, “Costco liquor”, “Costco spirits”, “Costco beer”, “Costco wine”, or “Kirkland Signature alcohol”, “Kirkland Signature liquor”, “Kirkland Signature spirits”, “Kirkland Signature beer”, “Kirkland Signature wine”, the first result is either this page or this page – both being dead blank pages with zero product info. You may also be taken to a costco.com.au (Australia site) with options and prices that are completely different than what the Costco stores in the U.S. sell.

Your guess is as good as mine as to why Costco doesn’t want people to know what alcohol they sell or how much it costs (e.g. a price list), but given that it is such a mammoth company and their prices are favorable to similar brand-name marketed products, I can’t imagine it is an oversight. There could be a few possible factors at play, but I’ll leave the punditry to your imagination. Whatever the case, I decided to fill the void and create an “ultimate guide” to Costco’s alcohol selection. I sought out the answers to the following questions:

  1. Can you buy alcohol at Costco without a membership?
  2. What types of Kirkland Signature house brand beer, wine, and spirits does Costco sell?
  3. What are the volume quantities for Costco Kirkland alcohol?
  4. How much does Costco Kirkland alcohol cost?
  5. Who makes Kirkland Signature beer, wine, and spirits?

Before we continue, I think it’s important to note that, in my view, alcohol is purely a luxury item – nowhere near being a necessity. If you have a negative or tiny personal savings rate, high-interest debt, or any sort of a drinking problem – you’d best avoid the stuff altogether.

Can you Buy Alcohol at Costco Without a Membership?

Let’s address this first. Legal drinking age is not the only factor at play in buying alcohol at Costco. As I highlighted in my how to shop at Costco without a membership post, it appears that buying alcohol at Costco is one of the few exceptions where you may not need a membership to purchase. At a minimum, the following states have had laws in place that require shopping membership clubs to sell alcohol to the general public without membership:

  • Arizona, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Texas, Vermont

There are varying reports on whether Costco has adopted the same policy in other states. Your mileage may vary.

On to the aisle… note that the Costco alcohol prices and selection may vary by location and by date.
