Small store thats Iím a weird spot of Decatur but great selection. Love visiting there when Iím in the area. Inside of the place is nice and I like the setup. Awesome that they have a growler station. I make it a point to check it out everytime Iím down in ATL.
This is a tiny store, although they are very selective with what they pit on the shelves so itís a very beer geek-friendly store. Like Hop City, Ale Yeah! also fills growlers and has very knowledgeable and helpful staff. The only two drawbacks are that Decatur is kin of out of the way for out-of-towners passing through, although it is also the best beer per capita neighborhood of metro Atlanta. The other drawback is that limited releases go in a hurry here and at Hop City because they cater only beer geeks.
Such a great place- if it is a craft beer and is available in GA it will be here. All beers arranged by style, the new arrivals are on a separate shelf, the owner is usually there and has a fantastic knowledge of beer and will always give me some good advice. My new go-to spot.
Friendly knowledgeable staff will offer suggestions or let you browse at your own pace but will always greet you on your way in. A true neighborhood spot in that regard. Style separation is handy and sometimes stuff lasts here a day or two longer than some of the bigger spots around town. Nice selection of complementary pieces to your beer experience as well in the form of some local cheeses and small batch chocolates.

A small store in an unassuming part of town. The bottles are organized by style, and very accessible and clean. The employees are busy, but quick to take the time to talk beer and find what you need. The selection is top notch. They have the best beers, but they donít have the shelf space to be exhaustive. Its a bit pricy, but not too bad. Overall, a small, quality beer store.
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!

Very nice selection, organized by style, with a section devoted just to new items that have entered the store. The people in the store are always very helpful and very knowledge. Great option of build your own six pack with anything in the store. have growlers as well. Excellent store with good prices and great people
Ale Yeah! has perhaps the best name for a beer store and it was a good stop. Itís 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 Iíve encountered. Prices are pretty reasonable, not quite as low as Greenís, but in the ball park of some other beer retailers. I will more than likely be back.
Stopped in last night! Letís giveír a go, shall we?
Parking is directly alongside College Ave in Decatur, with several spaces directly in front of the building and a make-your-own parking gravel area on the other side of the road. I lucked out with a proper parking spot, but be careful, as youíre backing out on a busy road. I suggest just gunning it!
A very cozy location, very boutique (beertique?) in size and scope. Along the walls are various wooden shelving dedicated to sections of styles - IPAís/DIPAís, Porters/Stouts, Sours, etc. A few coolers in the back house some scattered single bottles, as does a shelving unit beside the register.
A variety of glassware is available for purchase, as are some Ale Yeah! apparel and logo pint glasses. Thereís a small portion of the store dedicated to homebrew supplies and, if youíre in need of a dairy-based snack, a variety of cheeses from Sweet Grass Dairy in southern Georgia.
Due to their size, itíll be hard for them to compete with the selection of Greenís, which is only a few miles away, or Hop City on the other side of downtown. Same with the prices, which were a bit more than other stores. One complaint regarding the pricing is that a portion of the selection had no price tags on them whatsoever. I have no interest in carting around several unmarked bottles by the register to find out how much they cost.
This location will definitely need some love from the locals and hopefully benefit from their relatively close proximity to Brick Store Pub and Twainís. Best of luck toím!
