Having visited 5 Points a few times over the past few months, I can say it stands up well to any GA bottle shop. It's nice to see this store mature from the macro only shop I remember in my college days. Sachin has done a fantastic job of creating a good mix of craft beers, including some truly hard to find ones (in GA that is), in addition to a solid Belgian selection. Pricing is very reasonable. The service is fantastic, very knowledgeable, although, I must add, most recently I was being helped by Sachin, so how could the service be anything less than fantastic? A must stop if you are in the area, you'll definitely find some things you hadn't seen elsewhere in the state, and be treated well.

This is one of the best place to buy beer (and other forms of alcohol) in Athens. My cousin owns a competitor on the other side of town and he'll readily admit the same.
Staff can be hit or miss, but most of them are great. Owner's fantastic, as well. Usually very friendly and helpful. A bit stand-offish at the absolute worst. But being in a college town of Athen's caliber will definitely take its toll on you some days. They have a big collection of really shitty fake id's that they've confiscated and they like to scribble mean things on which I find hilarious (though possibly libelous, to be honest).
Selection is very good, especially for where you are. Prices can be beat, but not by much. It's definitely cheaper at Total Wine if you're in the Atlanta area, but for Athens this is one of the better options.
If you're in Athens and you're looking for better beer than what you'll find at Kroger, this is a good place to start.

Wow. I went in while visiting the town, just to see if I could find something to have at the hotel while we were visiting, but wound up discovering the most extensive collection of bottled beer I have ever seen! Started at the far cooler, where there were three full shelves of Stone bombers, including the vertical epic from 09-12, old guardian, smoked old guardian, and RIS. Moving through the store, it was organized by geography, and the staff were very helpful in locating whatever I thought I would like to find.
As has been stated in other posts, I didn't even know that Mikkeller made that many beers! There had to be 6 full shelves, over 40 different Mikkeller products. The sours section was impressive, and the Belgian Aisle also had quite a selection.
Asked about a couple mythical beers, and while I found the Rodenbach Grand Cru and Sierra Nevada 30th anniversary, they didn't have Westy XII, Black Ops, Black Note, BA Bigfoot, or Biscotti Break.
Great selection of glassware in the Growler shop, and an amazing selection of taps (Enjoy By, Siren Noire, etc).
Will be back next time I'm in town.

The best beer store in Athens, and one of the best in the SouthEast. A phenomenal selection with new beers coming in almost every week. The staff is great with people specialized in knowledge for beer, wine, and liquor. The everyday beers are a little pricier than usual here, but the specialty and craft selection are about on par with every where else.

The bottle shop doesn’t look like much from the road but this is THE place for beer in Athens and beyond!
Vintage beer, rare releases, brews you won’t find anywhere else in Georgia… they’re all here. Plus full line-ups of every other major brand (that shelf of Stone bombers…more stuff than I've ever seen).
They have Lost Abbey Deliverance and Angel’s Share (got a ’10 Brandy, drinkable). Also a Harvest Ale 2002! Every Mikkeller you can think of, including the Black Hole series (I bought Tequila).
Pretty fair prices all around, $14.99 for those Lost Abbeys and $7.99 for Harvest Ale. Outrageous selection of bourbons as well, including New Holland bourbon aged in beer barrels.
Service was perfectly nice at checkout, and they have beer folks around the aisles. Along with Ale Yeah! Roswell, this is my favorite beer store in the ATL-GA area.

The best beer store I've ever been in.
Athens is a killer college town, we hit it once a year for a fun weekend. It's loaded with pubs & restaurants and everyone is laid back and cool.
I only discovered this shop on my last trip and can't believe I've missed out on it before now. I literally spent an hour and a half poking around the store and ended up with a very reasonable tab for the amount of items I bought.
In the same parking lot there's a draft building with 20 taps of quality brews you can purchase in three different sizes of growlers.
They have a second store in town too that I have yet to visit.
This place is worth a trip, make a weekend of it and be sure to stop at Trappeze Pub. You'll be happy.
