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.
Totally the best ’hidden gym’ in georgia. Fantastic selection of rare and vintage beers. The store itself has no real ’character’ or ’charm’, But the growler shed beside the store is really sweet and makes up for it quite a bit. it’s just a dumpy package store, so the ambiance score suffers. Average prices for most stuff, but they surprisingly didn’t 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 haven’t seen in Atlanta. The Belgian section is expanding; most recently, they’ve 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 couldn’t 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.
