For a town its size, Cumming is a great place for beer lovers - not only do they have the best of the Summits Wayside Taverns, but a package store with an awesome selection of beer. I expected the standards plus a few local brews, but found much more than I expected - including an impressive selection of imports and a lot of Belgians. Service was very good.

This is a great place to buy beer if you have time to browse, and know what youíre looking for. They have cases and shelves, and lots of craft beer in almost no semblance of order. 7 or 8 cooler doors of macro and micro selections. I was able to find Duck Rabbit beers, Founders, Bellís, Terrapin, and Left Hand selections, mixed in with everything else. Employees usually stay up by the register, so I was left to browse, but I did find a few gems. I would definitely return again, if in the area.

Not as great as Greens, but for North Georgia, they have a pretty nice selection. There are two guys there that are always trying to get me to buy certain beers that I have a) Already tried, or b) No desire to try even if it were the last beer on Earth, but they have good intentions. If you are in up in Cumming, donít hesitate to stop, because if you want a competitive selection and prices you have to come down to the city. They do receive a lot of the "great" beer that come through Atlanta, and even some we donít receive here in the city, but still I would much rather stay true to my Midtown area, before venturing to Cumming to buy a beer.

This is a large package store, focusing mainly on liquor and wine, but with a respectable beer selection, and they know their stuff. Unfortunately, they donít break six-packs. The prices are standard or better. Overall, there are better stores around.

Visited on a recent trip to Dahlonega--and boy, am I glad we drove the extra distance to find this place. Best selection of beer I have seen in somewhat rural GA for sure. It took quite a while to browse the beers as it seemed beer was everywhere -- coolers, shelves, hiding in back corners, etc. Noticed some beers from Left Hand, Sweetwater, Allagash, Moylans and Founders that I hadnt seen elsewhere in the area. Definitely more than a few treasures to find if you take the time to look carefully. A must stop in this area.

Take a right off GA400 N, exit 14 (same exit as Summits). It is on the left by Wal-Mart. Kinda cramped. Iím a small dude, and I caught my self walking sideways down the aisles. Lots of beer. Good beer, bad beer, local beer, foreign beer, new beers, hard to find beer. Newest of the new offerings and hard to find offerings. This is my new place to shop. This is a good go to place when you canít drive all the way down to Greenís or Bullockís. Not the biggest selection of those awesome Belgian rarities, but JAX holds their own. I plan to be a regular. Great prices, nice selection of the newest beers. CASH DISCOUNTS!

This store has gone downhill IMO. The biggest problem I see is that their inventory does not move very fast which leads to certain beers passing their peak - especially IPAs and IIPAs. Additionally, they tend NOT to order current batches of beer, b/c they still have old batches sitting on the shelves. The service in the beer dept. has gone downhill as well. If I ask if they are getting a certain beer in stock, they simply answer, I donít know. Most of the coolers are reserved for the BMC and local beers which leaves beers like Two Hearted and Stone IPA on the hot shelf. Prices are good. Overall selection isnít bad, but I have noticed they arenít getting all the new releases anymore. The one thing this place is good for is finding an old beer that is sold out everywhere else that you donít mind sitting on a shelf for months.

They get most of the new releases, all good locals, and generally a better than average selection. Most of there beer is out of cooler which is fine, but a lot of it has been sitting for a long while. Still I always manage to find gems here.

Took the trip up here after work as it would normally be quite a trek from where I live to pick up a rare style of beer (Faro). They have a fairly large selection of local, micros, & imports. I will be monitoring the beers available here since I think they might continue to have rarer beers longer than at Greens.
