I see a lot of negative comments about this place. I've been to about every talked about Brew store in Metro Atlanta, and this place is #1, next to "Hop City". They have a HUGE! Selection, and yes the store is packed and a little disorganized, cause there's a huge flux in beers for us consumers every couple days.... If you want or haven't heard of it, they got it!
This is the place to go for any kind of booze. They have a decent beer selection, plenty of micros and imports as well as single bottles. I have seen better selections, but I did find a few brewskis I have never seen before in Atlanta. The store seemed a little undermanned when I was there, but I visited on a Monday afternoon and maybe that is one of their slower times. The man who helped me at the cash register was quite efficient and fast, though; I was on my way in a short time. If they allow you to "mix a six" then this place warrants more than one return visit.
A - I feel like Iím in a really big liquor store in the ghetto
S - on the phone, forget it, at the store - itís alright after you go through several people
S - Still a go-to place to get some harder to find brews
F - N/A
V - íbout the same as everywhere else
O - Always call if I canít find a brew somewhere else, but def not my first pick
Beer plays a less prominent role than either wine or liquor at this large store but the selection is nonetheless excellent. Particularly strong in regional craft beers. Most of the left side wall is beer in coolers; mainly 4- and 6-packs. Thereís more beer, however, at room temperature in the front left of the store. Narrow aisles lend a nearly claustrophobic atmosphere.
Low prices for the most part, and most things clearly priced. The one bomber bottle I took to the register rang up at a price about 30% higher than indicated but I think this was a fluke.
Been going here for years, but they've only recently upped their game when it comes to craft brews. Agree with whoever said they can't touch hop city, but if you live anywhere near it, it can now officially be your go-to spot.
Not quite up to par with Greenís but still a pretty good beer selection. Some of the staff are very helpful, though the average employee seems to be concentrating too hard on breathing to be very helpful. Of the liquor stores in the Atlanta this one is second only to Greenís. All of the locals are present, a decent selection of Belgian, and some American micros that are not at Greenís. Worth checking out if you are in the area.
Neon festooned, old building, with a dirty, crowded interior, and no real organization. Stacks of boxes of beer all over the place. I couldnít find an employee until I was ready to check out. For all that, the selection of beer is very respectable, with a nice import section, and some foreign beer I havenít seen outside Total Wine. The prices are good, too. Iíll be back here, if Iím in the area.
Crowded, narrow aisled package store - need to watch your elbows tro make sure you do not knock over anything. Decent selction of local micros, west coast bombers, standard Belgians, Germans and Brits - nothing to knock your socks off. Seriously lacking in the singles department - but I know the world does not cater to us beer geeks. Hit Greens if you are in the area instead. Staff is friendly enough - even opened up an extra register when the lines got backed up.
Right from the front door, it feels like you are walking through a maze. Definitely more of a liquor store than wine or beer. Pretty OK beer selection, but nothing special; I didnít buy anything. Itís hard to browse because the aisles are only 3 feet wide and you are constantly about to back into a wall of bottles. Staff seemed friendly enough and fairly helpful to customers. Not really worth going to for beer, when Greenís on Buford Hwy is so close and has better prices and selection. But if you are going to sit in you car and sip your Mr. Boston purchase out of the paper bag, Toco is the place for you.
This place is OK... the bad thing is that itís only 2 miles from Greens on Buford, which is way better. The beer selection here is kinda crammed on one end. Iíve got a few things here Iíve not got at greens, but nothing to write home about. They do have some good closeout prices on some weird named beers, good selection of samplers and such. Prices are good. Greens is definitely better, but this place holds itís own as far as selection. Right by Chilis which usually has a sam adams seasonal and sierra nevada
