There is a bottle shop and a growler station. Bottle shop is quite nice with lots of locals and rarer distributed beers like Evil Twin one offs. Service is nice. The offer lots of singles out of 6 packs and a cooling station. The growler station has great choices and offers lots of variety with 3 different fill sizes. Worth a stop.

A nice bottle shop with about half of the store being beer, plus they have a growler fill station around the corner. Service was great, friendly and knowledgeable. Selection was amazing, I was actually pretty blown away; nothing exceedingly rare, but still lots of cool stuff. Prices were right on what I expect to pay, and growler fills were super cheap. Definitely worth the stop if your in town.

Massive selection, friendly and knowledgeable staff. Most of the local stuff is in sixers, could use more singles, but thatís a minor quibble. Worth going out if your way for.

This is the best place to buy beer in the southeast, bar none. No one else even comes close.

Totally the best íhidden gymí in georgia. Fantastic selection of rare and vintage beers. The store itself has no real ícharacterí or ícharmí, But the growler shed beside the store is really sweet and makes up for it quite a bit. itís just a dumpy package store, so the ambiance score suffers. Average prices for most stuff, but they surprisingly didnít price gouge on the vintage stuff. The staff was VERY helpful and knowledgable about lots of the brews they carried. And the selection was world class. I will ALWAYS be stopping by here when I am passing through Athens.

The best beer store in Athens, period. And probably one of the best in the SE part of the country. They are always finding new and interesting varieties for their shelves. Great selection of US micros, as well as British and other European, including several I havenít seen in Atlanta. The Belgian section is expanding; most recently, theyíve added many sour and barrel-aged beers. Staff is friendly and very knowledgeable. In downtown Athens, this is the place to find the best bottled beer available. They also have a growler sales building next door w/ 45 taps.

Going back to this place since graduating (10 + years ago) reminds me of all the beer I couldnít afford then. The guys are super nice, helpful and knowledgeable. They had great selections and some of the big stouts that go quick in Atlanta where still on the shelves. I highly recommend stopping by to check this out if in Athens.

My friends told me to check this place out. Granted, the outside of the building looks pretty sketchy. I expected to find Jay and Silent Bob hanging out front. Inside I was shocked to see lots of beers that I was led to believe werenít allowed to be sold in Georgia: Cigar City, over 14% ABV Dogfishhead, etc... The selection was enticing - very impressive. Not nearly the variety you could find in Atlanta but lots of stuff you donít see ANYWHERE in the state. The clerk was friendly if not necessarily helpful. Young kid - college age. Prices a little higher than I usually see in Atlanta at either Hop City or Greenís but not outrageous. Very lacking in certain categories (small selection of Lambics) relative to ATL but worth the trip for the stuff I cannot find at any of the other retailers I normally visit. A good destination if you happen to be in Athens.
