Located inside of Whole foods but with a separate entrance, this place is a literal hole in the wall that has only part of a back cooler with over 6% craft. They had around 100 varieties but nothing to obscure or adventurous. I do like that they keep their beer cold, but I wonder about how much turnover they get. The staff was very friendly and eager to talk but their beer knowledge is unknown. Definitely not a beer destination.

Extremely small store with small cooler selection. High gravity only and nothing I have not seen in other local stores. Not really worth a stop in my opinion

Tiny little place next to Greenlife. Selection is OK, I guess - Hi-grav only (Stupid Tennessee laws). Prices were a little on the high side. Staff seemed friendly.

A hole in the wall literally next to Greenlife. The only store of I know in Noog that just does high ABV beer and wine only. It is also gets brownie points for having most of the selection cold. A rarity in this town. Selection is good considering the size with no macro swill. Staff has always been friendly.

Very poor selection of beer. Very awesome selection of wine. The wine is over priced but I donít know if you could find it anywhere else around here.

Didnít even realize this would be a separate entry here when I did my review for Greenlife Grocery.
The Vine is the small wine/beer store adjacent to Greenlife that sells beer over 6% ABV. The beer here is relegated to one corner where youíll find a fair selection (good for the city of Chatt), of high-abv imports and domestic craft beer. A bit better selection than Riverside. Prices are a touch high, but not unreasonable. Store was clean, and the employee was friendly and helpful.

Great over six selection, better than Riverside. Small little store but plenty available in singles mostly. Picked up a few things had a chat with the guy working who convinced me to grab a Saint Somewhere Saison Athena. Prices seemed more competitive than the under six grocery side.

Stumbled in here after noogfest. The manager was really cool and let me in to check out the selection even though he couldnít sell me anything due to it being a sunday. Pretty small selection, but the store is really tiny, and apparently, has most everything available in the Noog. I was impressed to see the imperial tommyknockers. And the low-alc side has a good selection, so this is definitely the place to a stop.

This is the high alcohol side of Greenlife which due to TN laws has to be seperated from the actual grocery store. There is a fellow who has been working every time Iíve been here. He is very knowledgable about the products, friendly, and helpful. The selection is the best as far as over 6% beer goes in Chattanooga. Check my rating for Greenlife for anything else I may have missed.

I stumbled across this place as I was trying to look for a new grocery store in Chattanooga. This store is right in the middle of a new brick shopping complex just up the road from River Side Spirits. Itís attached to the grocery store (green life I think), but is separate and it is fairly small. However, what he is offering more than makes up for the size. He has a very nice selection of high end spirits and what appears to be a thoughtful selection of wines. The beer selection is as good as Iíve seen in Chattanooga. He really has an excellent selection of brews from overseas and has worked hard to get the local distributors to improve on the selection of available US craft brews. At the time I went, he had obtained some excellent offerings from Stone, a rare Scotch Ale release from Mean Time, and many other goodies too long to list. The Manager, Chris, was helpful, knowledgeable, and is really on his game. You wonít fine a better store right now in Chattanooga.
