cant believe i never rated this before. i first visited after my first visit to hopleaf and i have returned nearly after post-meal walk for a bottle on the way home. dont let appearances fool you, it seems a bit shady and the staff is less then helpful but the cooler has most of what you need (and some of what you dont) for the transit home after your steak frites.

This is my neighborhood go-to with an impressive selection for the size of store. Newly built section in the back greatly increased their beer offerings. Knowledgeable staff on beer and wine. Reasonable prices. They always tell me when they get rarer things in. Highly recommended.

I live in Andersonville and it makes me very happy this store is on the strip. They recently upgraded most of the inside and expanded their beer selection. The prices are a bit high, but get over it, itís convenient. In all honesty, there isnít really a markup over Binnyís and the pricepoint is on par with other bottle shops in the city. Did you go to Hopleaf? Stop by to get a night cap. Are you going to dine in one of the many BYOB restaurants in Andersonville? Stop here before you go. They have a huge amount of coolers, which besides lots of beer includes chilled white wine and Sake.

I always stop here when I find myself in Andersonville, if for nothing else, just to see what they currently have stocked. The selection is not massive, but what they do have is solid, and every once in a while, you can find some limited items as well, but be ready to pay a premium on tightly allocated brews. Nearly (if not absolutely) every one of their selections is in the cooler, so this is a good option for BYOB restaurants as well.

Near my hood. Have hit this place up a few time for BYOB places near there. This place has a nice fridge section with a decent amount of big bottles and some six packs of macros and imports. The price is a bit steep, but for the location and competition around there this is what you get. They donít have anything out of the ordinary and no real deals here. If you are out of town and hit Hop Leafs and wanted something like GI or alpha king to take back and canít make a trip out to a binnys then this is a good close place to hit up but pay a bit more. The service is average, really havenít had to ask for help, but they did offer.

around the corner from hop leaf. 22oz/750ml in coolers up front and in the back room shelved. found a few bottled regional/local micros not found elsewhere. atmosphere is kinda scuzzy but prices are okay and selection is decent enough to hit this place if youíre in andersonville visiting hop leaf.
