Any bottle shop recommendations?

Hop City and Greens on Ponce are good ones.

Greens is good, but Hop City is absolutely the best, IMO. Selection is so incredible, it’s nearly overwhelming. I’d recommend going there with an idea of what you’re looking for, otherwise, you can get lost in that place...

Haven’t been in many years but we also went to tower wine on piedmont. I think that’s where I picked up angels share and red poppy. If you stray into Athens 5 points on lumpkin is pretty sweet too.

I don’t generally venture into downtown Atlanta often, but I have heard that Ale Yeah! is very good. Alpharetta/Roswell has a very high density of small, friendly shops; I’d recommend Crabapple Bottle and Blind Murphy. Marietta is loaded with medium-sized shops, and Lucky’s up in Woodstock has Lucky’s Beverage with a pretty nice selection.

Also, there are a few breweries to check out: Sweetwater and Red Brick in Atlanta, Red Hare in Marietta, and Burnt Hickory in Kennesaw. Check Groupon, since Red Brick almost always has 50% off groupons for a tour/tasting deal.

Ale Yeah is a fun place.

I’ll be between Marrietta and the west side of town. Thanks for all the suggestions.

If you’re in northern Marietta, check out Sprayberry Bottle Shoppe... they have six packs and bombers of almost every local brew that’s out there. Red Hare makes a good IPA that’s only available locally.

Hop City and Green’s on Ponce depending on where you’re at.

Will you have time to get to Athens?
