Stopped in here on my way to FL. After reading all the reviews I was pretty pumped to stop in. When I walked in there was beer every where!!! Just cases upon cases were on the floor and in the isles in between shelfs. Shelfs were kind of bare in some spots. Maybe they just got in a new shipment or something. At the store the staff was kind of helpful. I asked on guy about wake-n-bake and he acted like I was the 20th guy that aked him that day. They do carry a lot of beer and have a good selection. They also carry wine and have a homebrew supply shop. On top of that, they do have homebrewing classes. And they have something like 50 taps. I wish I had a store like this by me. Very cool!
Know, the reason why I gave a 1 for service. On my stop in I also grabbed a growler. I planned on drinking it that night at my hotel. I had 5 more hours to drive till then. So I had 5 hours to crave this beer! When I finally got to my hotel I cleand a pint glass with soap and pored the cold beer in. instantly I noticed that the carbonation was way off and the rest of the growler smelled sour. Since then I called several times on mulitple days. No one ever answered the phone and there mail box was was full. So I e-mailed them and never got a responce back. This was about two weeks ago.
Overall its a great store with poor customer service. Be careful if you purchase a growler.

Great place to buy beer and wine. Not so great place when it comes to home brewing supplies and equipment.
The homebrewing equipment is crammed into tight quarters to maximize the presentation of beer and wine. From a retail beer and wine business, and occasional hombrewer standpoint, this makes good sense. If you're a serious homebrewer, you will find this place lacking.
Go if you want to buy some beers. This place does have one of the most robust selection of beers in the state. They are serious about beer and often get a number of sought after new releases and rare beers.
Stay away if you're a serious homebrewer. They don't have a large selection of specialty grains or yeasts. And the method they use of storing their hops in glass screw top jars, seriously jeopardizes the integrity of the hops.

Went to Hop City for the first time last month. Good selection of Belgians and American micros, along with a decent imported selection. Quite a bit of brewing supplies for the industrious home brewer. Why would I want to make my own beer when so many great breweries already exist to make it for me, but to each his/her own.
Lots of people working there, friendly and helpful. I did not ask for help this time, but got the impression that the employees know a lot about beer.
Reasonable amount of wine, with a split of 55% beer and 45% wine. Coolers with a good selection in the back. A bit pricey, but no more than Green's (more expensive than Tower).
Will definitely patronize again.

Stopped in to pick up some beer to have at my hotel while I was in town for a conference. I was hoping to find a few rarities or something worth taking home, but aside from a few bottles of Fantome, there wasn't anything that I found too interesting. However I may be being a bit snobbish as I say that. They have a huge selection of Belgians and american craft beer as well as a growler bar with some very good selections when I was there. The staff was nice and seemed to know what they were talking about as well.
Worth checking out, especially if you aren't local as they probably have stuff you don't at home.

Found out that this place was open yesterday, so I dragged my better half down to Marietta Street to check the store out. It's located proximate the Brickworks development. Very nice looking store. Coolers are along the back wall and include a mixture of macros and micros. The shelves between the register and the beer selection are stocked full of beer and are organized by type of beer. Since the shop has only been open for a couple of days, there are some bald spots on the shelves. The owner indicated that 1/3 of his stock was located in the back room. Regardless, this place has a lot of promise. While they weren't out yet, I was told that beer glasses were going to be sold and would have their own separate shelf. Maybe some homebrewing stuff as well? Solid wine selection as well. The only thing I saw that might be a problem was they displayed the Belgians at the front of the store right next to the window, which could affect their quality. Overall, this place has alot of promise. I hope they can make it in this rough economy.

I've been over here a few times now and it gets better and better.
Quality is good. There are a lot of windows in the place which may be a detriment but that will remain to be seen. Obviously there are no bottles past their prime as it's been open for a bit over a month.
Service is good. Everyone there has been attentive, though I've yet to ask for anything specific as I've found all the information I need on their shelves or on the BA forum.
Selection is good. I saw Victory's Wild Devil there first, as well as Nogne's Dobbel IPA which I've yet to see at Green's or Tower. Other more obscure beers also show up there, though they've also shown up at Green's and Tower. There certainly seems to be hardly anything lacking here.
Value is good, though it's just a tad pricier than other big stores. Hopefully the prices will fall in line as business increases.
Overall this is a very nice addition, though I have to say I wouldn't stop by as much if it wasn't adjacent to Five Seasons as Green's on Ponce and Tower on Piedmont are much closer to me. This is a nice addition to the beer scene and I wish the owners the best.

My "go to" beer store in Atlanta. Their beer selection is extensive and organized by style rather than brand, which I really, really like. Perhaps a little sparse on Belgian beer.
Staff is knowledgeable and helpful. They have a chilling device in case you need something cold that is not in the fridge. They allow you to break 6-packs to try something without having to over-commit. They also sell by the case for a discount. They supposedly have kegs, but I've never purchased one. Prices are fair considering the location. Free on the street parking and an overflow lot in back.
Best beer store in Atlanta.

I stopped here during a trip to my hometown of Atlanta. The location is in a good location and the building is new and clean. Upon entering I was surprised they had wine, but I guess that goes with the territory. The selection is top notch, but they didn't have as much of a selection as I was expecting for a city the size of Atlanta. It was hard to find specific beers, but that just gave me more time to browse and check things out. There were no prices on anything so I just loaded up and hoped for the best. $130 bucks later I left with a case full of big boys! I give this place a 4.5 because it was nice and the selection was good. But you have to give places like this high scores because the only comparison are places like liquor stores and grocery stores. It is what it is!

Lots of beer options here... Great selection of domestic micros and crafts from all over the map stretching from the NE to the West coast to the South, and up to the great Northwest. Also, plenty of Belgians, and other Euros. A great combination of a little of everything. I'd say domestics are the primary focus though
Didn't really have any questions, but the staff was friendly and inquired to myself and anybody else in the store if they needed assistance.
The growler station is a good. The guys at the growler station were really interested in beer talk, informative to the patrons ahead of me who had questions, and generally cool and friendly. Nice selection which from what I can tell is in a diverse and constant rotation.
If you're in the area, meaning anywhere in the ATL, it's worth the trip even if it means driving across town. Organization of beer is a little funny (if I have to reach for something that's off...I'm just reaching though to balance out my review.)
Oh yea, they even had the normal macros and such in the coolers and a nice wine selection, too if that sort of thing suits the fancy of yourself or drinking companion.
Go there....you won't regret it.

Stopped here on my way through Atlanta after stopping at 5 Seasons Brewery (right next door).
Simply put, I don't think I've seen a beer selection that comes close to what they have to offer at Hop City.
I had to walk around for awhile just to wrap my head around all those beer choices. I was able to pick up lots of things I've heard of but never have seen. Some selections from Left Hand that I've never seen before. They also had Brooklyn Local 1 and 2.
Great selection of local brews and also a great selection of everything else, from regional, national and even international beers.
