This was a very cool looking place. The waterfalls kick ass. The beer selection includes a good selection of belgians and 6 packs of micros. I like that most of the beer is in coolers as well. Like its been stated this is no Greens selection wise but its worth the trip if you are in Kennesaw.
There was a time when I would recommend Beverage Resort. Sadly, that time has long since passed. Their beer selection has fallen on hard times in recent years, with little of the new breweries available in the GA market finding their way here, particularly since the selection is being increasingly overwhelmed by a growing presence of basic macro beers.
Their only advantage is that they’re the last liquor store in the area to close. So, there’s always that.
Ah, Beverage Resort, we hardly knew ye.
this place was better about a year ago. they never seem to get new beers in these days, and when they do they are usually like a month behind total wine. the staff is helpful and knowledgeable enough to get by. although i would recommend total wine or sherlocks over beverage resort excpet for beverage resort is always open til 11 or later
The feel of this place is awesome! Waterfall is great, nice setting. Service is always great, especially at night when Todd is there. He has incredible knowledge and is always willing to share it. The two older guys tend to just creep me out and every time I go there there is one guy always talking about dancing and hitting on women.
The beer selection and pricing is the best around north Metro Atl. Vodka and rum prices can’t be beat. All other liquor prices are exceptional as well. However, they suffer when it comes to the higher end wines. The Yellow Tail, Woodbridge, all of the 1.5 are the lowest I’ve seen, but anything above $15 is beyond overpriced. The cigar prices are better than decent as well.
Overall, the look and feel are incredible. The service is much better at night and ten times more knowledgeable, even the two college kids that work there know more than most people. The beer and liquor prices, especially the vodkas and popular beers, cannot be beat. The wine is suffering badly though, especially with Total Wine being two miles away. This is my favorite store, but I would never pay for wine here. At least check it out, I promise you’ll find a few things that you will always come here for.
No glassware, guy at checkout was very chatty but beer clueless. Slightly kitchy but IMHO cool decor - at least for a beer store!!!. Clean, fair amount of refrigeration. Check multiple areas to make sure you didn’t miss anything. Fair to good selection, new beers clearly laid out. New items identified nicely. This is not Greene’s in terms of variety but well worth the trip if you are in the area.
This was a great find. They have a freakin’ waterfall in there!! I walked in and the woman asked if she could help. I was looking for beer. Good selection of ROGUE at a good price... then I walked around the corner! OMG. best selection OTP! I bought the full range of Baltika. No big deal, but vey good prices and a better selection than what I’m use to. I will regular this place!

Nice store. Very well decorated. I can’t believe it scores higher than Greens. Maybe the selection was better in the past. If I can’t get to Greens this would be one of the best places to go. I will return.
this place was cool. i loved the waterfalls and the atmosphere. the displays were set up nicely. they selection must have slipped recently as i noticed they have about the same stuff as everywhere else around the area (i.e. Minks, Sherlock’s, etc.) What they had that I was shocked by was the impressive collection of foreign beers I had never heard of. I picked up a few, at very reasonable prices. I didn’t really have any interaction with the staff, so I can’t really rate that as well... all in all a cool place for something different.
Pretty decent selection for Kennesaw. Lots of domestics micros (highlights: Middle Ages, Sweetwater, Atlantic, Rogue and Harpoon) and a nice import selection (highlights: Piraat, De Konninck, Deus, some nice German and British ales of various brewers). Prices are a bit high compared to other stores in area but not bad. (Except they charged 7.99 for a 750ml of Ommegang...ludicrous). Selection has slipped a bit over the past year. They no longer stock Ayinger for example supposedly because the owner has a problem with that particular distributor. Was one of the best selections anywhere in Atlanta so still a decent selection after the slip. Pretty good beer joint, could be great. Beer guy seems to know what’s up but I question the owner’s committment to making this a true beer destination. Used to be my one stop shop locally, now it’s a third option.

Well, the store looks pretty much exactly as aracauna described it. It has large ceilings and everything is very clean and well furnished. The beer is split up and divided into different sections. There’s imports & domestics in different freezer isles. The selection is excellent [for Atlanta] and they even carry a mystical &quo;over 6% ABV&quo; brew (if you can find it, HA!). This was an overall not-to miss store in the Atlanta area. My only gripes about this is place is that you can’t split 6-packs, but I’ve heard that is true about many places in Georgia. For regional singles, I’d recommend Jax over this place, but for imports, this is the place.
