This place is amazing. I don’t live in Atlanta anymore, but always come here when I come back to visit family and friends. They organize all the beer by style, like liquor stores do with wine - so you will find stouts in one section, belgians in another, IPAs, etc... The selection is gigantic and alot of it is rare / hard to find for the area. Helpful staff and decent prices, although I would complain that their hop city benefit card doesn’t really give you any benefits, it just advertises them as all you can gain are their t shirts and stuff. Overall very highly recommended, and the best beer store I have visited to date.
Best beer store in the Atlanta area. I try to always buy my beer from these guys unless Im in a rush and just looking for a quick Natty Treasure or PBR fix. Also a great resource for home brewers, with quality supplies and knowledgeable experts willing to impart their knowledge you can’t go wrong if you’re looking making some delicious beer of your own at home.
Excellent selection of craft beer. Very knowledgeable staff very eager to help if needed.

Stopped in here on the way home from a conference, as it seemed to be the highest reviewed bottle shop in the area. Was very glad I did so. Convenient to downtown, tucked into a large grouping of boutiques and right next to a 5 Seasons branch (mental note for next visit). Dark, woody interior with an abundance of stock. Seems like a really good wine selection, for what it’s worth. Warmly greeted by proprietor Craig and his son (who was off from school on this election day). Was really nice to chat with Craig throughout, and he was super helfpul, superbly knowledgeable, and really cared about what he was doing. This is the kind of thing that makes a local. Terrific beer selection, tons of Belgians (lambics and Trapists were especially well represented), and a vast amount of domestic craft. Only shame was that there wasn’t more cooler space for all the hoppy beers they were packin’. Top notch!
A nice little place right next to Ga Tech. Half the store is Beer, half is Wine. No liquor from what I could tell. Bruery, Founders, Great Divide, Left Hand were all represented. The workers were all extremely nice and helpful. Sign up for their Facebook page, constant updates about new events and arrivals.
Very good selection of trappist beers. Very convenient mini trolleys which always ends filled with different bottles of american beers which their largest diversity. The selection of beers in the fridge is adequate. Also has good bottles of wine.

Nice, craft beer focused bottle shop on the west side of Atlanta. Right next to a 5 Seasons, which is nice. The store itself has a rack of the usual suspect Belgians up front, with 4 bigger rows of craft and high quality imports. The cooler selection was pretty slim, and the single selection even slimmer. A sign in the store seemed to indicate they may single out any beer, but I didn’t ask. All employees I talked to were knowledgeable and friendly. For locals, this seemed like a great place. For out of towners, I would make sure everything you want is in singles if that’s what you are after. Overall, a very nice beer store.
82 = ★★★½ (Solid place, near the top of the list for locals and visitors)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
Only been a few times. Awesome selection. Has its own section for Belgian stuff as well as tons of American stuff. Just about anything available in GA can usually be found here, and these guys are one of the first to get new stuff. Staff was super helpful as well. Among the vast amount of various beers, it also doubles as a home brewing shop. Nice selection of ingredients and supplies. All around a great shop for all things beer.
Downtown(ish) Atlanta near the campus of Georgia Tech. Wonderful selection. Beers organized kind of by style. Staff was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Great place, will visit again

Not your average package store. Almost the whole store is dedicated to beer. There are rows upon rows of beer. While most of it is on shelves at room temperature, you can’t blame them. It would cost a ton to refrigerate all of their selection. Everything is helpfully sorted by style and there is a large and enticing section of Belgians. If you need any obscure beer, you can likely find it here.
