Located in a new shopping center in a rather seedy area, also next to Five Seasons. When walking into the store you see a vast wine area, along with shelves and shelves of craft beer. Directly to the left are the Begian imports, then a shelf toward the side doors for mixing 12oz singles, then the center of the floor with large shelves filled with six packs, 22oz, and 750ml bottles. The back of the store has coolers filled with cases and six packs. One concern I have with the layout is it gets near some windows. Maybe they are treated to block UV and HEV (violet, blue, green) light, or maybe not.
The prices seemed reasonable to me, with no surprises. I was able to get a rather large number of beers without breaking the bank ($150+). Out of that I got two free little bottle openers. One thing I liked is the prices are what they are, where Green's charges less if they are purchased with cash rather than a credit card (at least I didn't see and price differences labeled anywhere).
I'm pretty sure just about any beer available in GA is in this place. I didn't get to look at every beer, as I wasn't concentrating on the six packs, but the selection is amazing.
This is a must stop for those who can get to it. Anytime I come to Atlanta I'm going to try to make it to this place. Highly recommended.

I would highly recommend Hop City. They probably have the best selection in Atlanta. The first time I went when I moved to Atlanta, it was like Disney World. Hop City makes a great first impression and at the end of the day is one of the most reliable stores in town. It would probably easily win the award for "best" beer store in the state of Georgia.
Their beer is sorted by style and there is so much selection that it can be hard to find. There staff is eager to help, but it seems like they always assume that they know much more about beer than you (which I assume they do, but I would rather them not talk down to me). That being said, they are very knowledgeable and reasonably priced. They do let you get singles, but prefer that you buy off of the singles shelf.
Like I said, it is the Disney World of beer stores, especially in the Southeast. Everyone goes to Hop City for special releases so I don't even bother. I do really like this place and go whenever I can. I do occasionally go out of my way to check out Hop City's unparalleled selection.

Wow! Visiting from Maryland, and heard this was one of the best places in town to buy good brews. I was not dissapointed. This store is primarily dedicated to beer, although having a descent selection of wine as well. Beer is sold as singled or in packs. If you don't see the beer you want in the singles isle you can pick one out of the pack and buy it as a single. They also have growlers for sale at VERY reasonable prices. The selection was outstanding compared to what I have in Maryland. Also, the 5 seasons brew pub is next door, and is a great place for good beer and great food. I highly recommend Hop City to anyone that lives or is visiting the Atlanta area. I make the trip to ATL once a year and will definitely make this a regular stop.

My wife and I are new to Atlanta and we found this gem on Foursquare. They offer a HUGE variety of beers from all over the world...and then a great wine selection as well! My favorite part of the store is the knowledge of the staff...second to none! They really know their beers and make it a point to have craft brewers from all over the country come by when they're in town to educate the staff. They offer home brewing classes each Saturday for the home brewing crowd and also have Growlertown to fill up your growler. I believe it was around 60 taps last I checked! Thank God I only work a mile from the place!

In a trendy part of town, this is the place to go for craft beer. The only thing missing is the ability to drink and sample from Growlertown, like they do at Hop City in Birmingham. I think the mothership in Atlanta makes up for that in selection, especially hard to find beers.
The staff is friendly, very knowledgeable and will go out of their way to suggest things for you to try. No beer snobbery here.
Growlertown is overflowing with out of the world selections.
Wish I lived here. They'd see me quite often.
One of the best beer palaces in the south. Don't miss it when you're in town.

5 stars for the insane craft beer selection. Over the top good. Just rows and rows of bottles and cans of the good stuff. But beyond quantity, the quality of the selection was absurd.
Hard-to-find American craft, a wealth of imports from every part of the world, I could easily have spent $1000 in here and not walked away with everything I wanted. Just to give an idea of what one can find, I picked up cans of Westbrook Brewing's Gose and Rye PA, Southern Tier Pumking, and a few bombers from local breweries Jailhouse, Terrapin and Sweetwater. But this was after a swift run through; If given an hour, I would've really found some obscure gems. I know it.
Anyhow, the prices were pretty fair and there were lots of bottles on sale. Also, the mix a sixer option had a lot of gems.
There also is a growler fill section with its own impressive selection of brews divided by style. The prices were fair, so if I had the privilege of living in ATL, I'd probably be in here a few times a week.
I did notice wine for sale as well, but this beergeek didn't even bother to check that section.
Finally, the service was friendly and free of snobbery, something deserving of some recognition.
Overall, Hop City is the model bottle shop, beer geek haven. If only my hometown had something similar.
