Suburban liquor store in the Alpharetta/ Roswell area. Typical liquor store appeal. I found some liquors Iíve looked for for awhile. Beer selection is great. I didnít find anything rare or hard to find. But their selection is solid for a smaller store. The staff was by far and away the most helpful Iíve ever encountered in my brew shopping adventures. Their prices are about the same as every other store. They did have several singles available so that you can purchase a smaller sample size before you get stuck buying some higher priced 4 or 6 packs. Nice place.
Looks like the kind of place where youíd get your checks cashed in bottles of malt liquor, bum wine, and Popov. The inside is crowded, but clean. The beer selection is rivaled only by Total Wine, and this place carries some extremely rare beers. Stellar selection of singles at decent prices with no volume discount. It was hard to even find cases of macro brews, which means that they are looking for classier customers. The staff were busy and never asked if you needed help finding anything, but were helpful enough if you asked, and were happy to make recommendations. This is a good place to shop.

Interesting location, but the interior is just a clean, standard liquor store. The employees were nice, but not overly helpful. The selection is good, but nothing outstanding. There were a few rarities and a lot of good bombers. The prices looked standard. Overall, this is a nice little store, and the best in the area, but nothing outstanding.
Stopped in here on the first Sunday that beer sales were allowed in Alpharetta. Definitely seems like a typical suburban liquor store from the outside. They had a pretty good selection of bombers and the largest variety of bells & dogfish head that Iíve seen in GA. The prices seemed decent as well. Quite a bit out of the way if you are passing through.
I have stopped here maybe a dozen times. Each time is better than the last! The newest releases are on the shelf. The high-end go to beer is there as well. They have a few shelves of singles to cater to us Beer Geeks as well. Prices are very competitive. SERVICE IS REMARKABLE. A+. I have not had a single visit to this place where at least one person has offered to help me. Even if I decline, we will still chat about the most recent beer each of us has had. Great conversations with the staff, each of whom do not know me as unclemattie (the rater). On my most recent visit, I was shown the new crop of Nugget hops that are growing on the side of the store. Just the day before, some local brewers asked to pick some of these for a single hop ale. To be named OCB Ale! When a store has a beer named for them, YOU KNOW THEY ARE DOING SOMETHING RIGHT in the name of beer. This store needs to become my new "to go to" spot.
Iíve passed this place by at least a thousand times (literally) over the years; it looks like one of the old, rather nasty NASCAR beer & cheap booze joints from a casual outside look, but has a moderate but excellent selection of craft brews, as well as an unexpectedly good selection of single-malt scotches and some other specialties. The service was simply outstanding, Tom (the owner?) is very passionate about craft brews, and enthusiastically took us for a tour of his selections the first time we were in. Word must be spreading about this place, he did warn that desirable short runs and seasonals sell out fast.
The selection for the tucked away area of Georgia is superb. The owner is very passionate about all things beer when I went in and even mumbled under his breath after doing a drive-thru window Inbev Lager sale that he hates selling water. After a small discussion, he mentioned that he gets several cases of the rarities thru his distribution channel. Overall, super nice dude with a good store out in the nether-regions of Atlanta.
This store is a fair drive from Atlanta, but well worth the trip. They have an excellent selection of beers, and their personnel are very helpful and clearly well-trained. In fact, they gave me a souvenir beer glass since this was my first visit. I found a few beers that I have never seen before - which is harder and harder for me to do since I have had so many! Prices are reasonable, neither cheap nor outrageous. I certainly will return if I get a chance!
Awesome little bottle shop with a big dedication to craft brew. I stop in here multiple times a week and more than not find something new. They are guaranteed 2 cases of all of the new releases from Savannah distribution which means all Founders, Bellís etc... This has become my goto spot when searching hard to get brews.
