I have found the perfect bottle shop - too bad I do not live in Athens! Literally at least a thousand beers to choose from - all categorized nicely - even has a section for sours. One of those stores where you are overwhelmed at the selections and you have to determine your priorities - low price tickers, high quality, missing selections from a favorite brewer? All can be accommodated here. Good selection of locals as well - which they had a few miscellaneous singles of local stuff from Georgia and the Carolinas - most were in six packs - but I had enough bombers to keep me satisfied. Bonus - if you buy more than six craft or imports (like that is a stretch for me) you get a discount and a free glass - what a deal! Will be a regular stop any time I am in Athens - which unfortunately is not too often

Absolutely terrific beer store, the best in NE Georgia in my opinion. The staff is very friendly and extremely knowledgable. These guys have a passion for their beer and their beer selection and it shows. As to the comment made by NachlamSie on the organization: This store is extremely small, with other stores in town being anywhere from 2 up to 5 times the Bottle Shopís size, yet the Bottle Shop has an inventory 4 times bigger than their biggest competitor. If you canít appreciate how difficult it is to get all of that on the floor, donít bash the storeís organization. They do all they can to make sure every single beer in Georgia is available to their customers, so yes, itís very hard to get all that organized in such a limited space.

Very good selection of beer, wine, and liquour. Fair prices and a very helpful staff. Best shop in north Georgia, with plenty of rare stuff. They get everything (and often more) that Greens gets. Great place. *** This is now the best in Georgia. Selection has continued to improve, and service is 2nd to none. Great place!

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

Iíve been to this place quite a few times and finally decided to rate it. This place was a must stop for me when I visited Athens the past few years. In just the three years that I shopped here, the selection got better and better. Each time I visited I typically spent a good bit of time and money, but always worthwhile. Service is awesome, Sachin and the crew were always willing to help. I canít say enough about the folks who work here. They love beer and were always helping beer geeks like me and regular folks who were just there to try something new. Selection is great, last time I was there they were adding Founders to their selection and had a complete 4 or 5 shelf section dedicated to their Mikkeller selection. There were many Belgians, English, German, and a ton of American crafts. If you are ever in the Atlanta area or driving on I-85 in that area, it is well worth the stop.

This is definitely the best beer store in Athens. The store itself is very small, but they pack as much beer as possible into their limited space. Organization could sometimes be improved, but if youíre looking for something in particular, you can ask most anyone and theyíll be able to help you. Service is always very good for me. Sachin or Richie will special order anything they can get and will hound distributors that will get something for Greens but not offer it to 5 Points. Theyíll even give you a call when they finally convince a distro to give them something and will let you know when it comes in. The selection is always expanding. Every time I come in, thereís something new. My only minor complaint is that there is no splitting of 6 packs. Overall, this store is a GREAT asset to the Athens beer scene.

Fantastic selection, very helpful staff. Iím so used to walking into a beer store and having to hunt for something Iíve never had. Everywhere I looked, though, I saw something I wanted. Couldíve easily dropped thousands of dollars on beer here. Great place.

Been there thousands of times. THE best family-owned bottle shop in NE Georgia. Excellent seleection of regional and national micros. A really small place right in the middle of Five Points. Ask for Sachin if you go.
