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, thatís not their fault. Still, a very good place.

Gotta say this place has an awesome selection, wasnít expecting this much but thereís 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 didnít 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 You do not find many out of date beers.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!!

This is a gem, particularly impressive in my home state. The tap selection is fresh and ever-changing, and the bottle aisles are well-stocked. There is quite the diverse selection. The service could be better.

Iím always impressed with the selection and quality of Hop City Birmingham. A beer snob could spend hours in here trying to decide what to buy. The tap area also has a nice selection of local beers, which I appreciate. The staff is friendly and helpful as well. I came on a busy Saturday and they were willing to serve me.
