Compact shop, jam packed with beer. But the thing here is the growler station. Tons of local stuff, including some one-off casks. There were no less than two special events the weekend I visited. Good place.
A little shop dedicated to craft beer. Nothing especially exciting, but great service and an obvious dedication to the industry. Prices are a bit high, but there are deals on growlers. I loved supporting this place.
The staff is great, the fact they do growler fills is pretty awesome. The selection is fairly standard actually, with a few interesting beers (including Arizona) but nothing really shocking. They did apparently get a case of Black Note, but I missed it (of course). Almost nothing is refrigerated, which is a minus. They will break up any six pack for singles, which is a plus. All in all, worth a stop, but doesn’t compete with the best bottle shops I have been to. Not sure what all the fuss is about - maybe the events make the difference, but I did not get to see one of those.
Visited later evening on a Monday. Easy to find, parking on the street in front or around the corner. I loved the layout and design of this store, the beers are shelved clearly and cleanly, and the draft selection was unique, with many local options. Due to local regulations, you can do a four beer taster, or growler fills; no pints at this point. The service was phenomenal, had a great conversation with owner of the place and felt perfectly at home here. The only two small quibbles I have with the store is the relatively small single selection, and the limited refrigeration. Overall, if I lived in Atlanta, this would most certainly be my store.
88 = ★★★★ (best in area, a must for locals and visitors)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
Ale Yeah! has perhaps the best name for a beer store and it was a good stop. It’s not the largest selection in the area, but it has the essentials and enough new and rare stuff to interest me in a return trip. The beer is displayed very well in small divided sections comprised of one style of beer, including one section merely labeled "new". I like being able to easily find new stuff without browsing through everything. The salesman was absolutely helpful and one of the most knowledgeable of the product that I’ve encountered. Prices are pretty reasonable, not quite as low as Green’s, but in the ball park of some other beer retailers. I will more than likely be back.
Visited 03/12/15. Nice, clean bottle shop and growler station with a solid selection. Maybe 300 bottles were available to choose from. Plenty of local stuff was available. I opted for a couple of random BFM ticks and also took home some random stuff from Alabama that I had never seen before. The guy working the counter seemed pretty friendly, though I was happy to shop without assistance. Good prices. Easy parking. A recommended stop.
A nice beer store with a large selection and a nice indoor set up. Everything is organized by style which is a bit different than I am used to. They have a nice growler station and very helpful staff. A really nice store.
So this is a pretty cool little bottle shop that had a few hard to find beers including LA Mo Betta Bretta. 7 or so growlers and a small homebrew selection which had grains by the pound instead of prepackaged which gets extra points from cool. Cool little shop.
Stopped by this shop after some dinner at brick store pub. Very nice selection and friendly staff. Everything is sorted by style which I’m not a huge fan of, but not a huge issue. Will probably be back next visit to Georgia.
If there are any beer stores in Heaven (or the Elysian Fields, or whatever), they are like this. Small and cozy, stocked to the gills with outstanding craft brews and imports arranged by style - and there is not even so much as a drop of big-name industrial swill. That is a BIG plus in favor of this place. The people who work there are helpful and friendly, but not in-your-face or obtrusive. Jay, the proprietor, was delighted to see me going after so many fine beers and even helped me look for some. I enjoyed meeting him and talking with him, and I fully intend to go back!
In addition to all the fine beers, they have an impressive array of glassware - not just regular pint glasses, but lots of brand-specific stemware. They also stock homebrew supplies. Their prices may not be the best, but their selection leaves nothing to be desired; they had several beers I have never seen before, including a few from a brewery I had not known of previously. If you live in the Atlanta area, Ale Yeah is a must!
