Visited on a Saturday around noon. Really nice bar/beer store. Probably 50 beers on tap or so, with a really nice local selection. A large selection of bottled beer as well. One downside I saw was that singles weren’t available (apart from bombers), but that may have more to do with Alabama regulations. I will definitely come back if I am in Birmingham again.

Much like the Atlanta store, this place is lined with rows and rows of delicious beers. Not quite as good as the ATL store since AL distribution isn’t on par with GA. Nice staff and a huge bar offering up pints and growler fills. They also tend to get kegs of special releases and host some decent events. The night I visited, Spike from Terrapin was in. A nice one-stop shop for the area.

Rather impressive store considering the unassuming surroundings and general location in Birmingham, Alabama. Everyone I met was friendly and helpful. Great selection, especially for local AL beers and other southern states. I’ll definitely stop here again when passing through Birmingham.

Parking was slightly confusing for a simple person like me. They share the building with a computer company, so I parked on the side where the Hop City sign was. The beer store is actually in the rear, though, so I should have parked on the opposite side, with the computer store sign. Anyway, the selection here is extensive, both in bottles and their tap list. They had a dozen beers from half a dozen local breweries on draft, all 4 ounce samples, ordered one at a time, were are a buck or buck and a half. Service is OK. They did seem to be limited by AL state beer distribution; they had Cigar City, but nothing from any of the other states in the region as far as I could tell. Of course, that’s not their fault. Still, a very good place.

Gotta say this place has an awesome selection, wasn’t expecting this much but there’s rows and rows of great beer, and large fridges to add to that. I picked up a few local beers as well as a Stone Unapologetic IPA and an Enjoy by IPA that arrived the week before. Could have stayed much longer but we were on a tight schedule so didn’t get a chance to try out the drafts.

Great selection and fair prices. You do not find many out of date beers. Growler Town has great selection and rotates often. Also being able to seat down try a few samples or have a pint is a nice touch! Best place in Birmingham to buy beer!!!

Has a large selection of bottled beer and wine as well as nearly 50 beers on tap. Has a bar in back to sample, have a pint, or get a growler to go. They also now have a small homebrew section but the staff is not very knowledgeable about it. My biggest complaint would be the checkout process, they manually look up products so check out can be a pain.

I have been going to Hop City to increase my knowledge and understanding of the finer nuances of beer. The staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. They can get overwhelmed at times even when the "Growlertown" seems slow, but they are thorough and get the job done. Love this place!!
