Go here. On pace to have the single largest selection of beer in Alabama. Another review mentioned having a problem with the service, which is surprising. The proprietors are very friendly and strive to understand what they are selling, and they are usually very talkative and helpful. Yes, their prices may run a tad higher than some other places, but most other places only have a fraction of the selection. And some stuff here is very competitively priced, so it's a mixed bag on pricing.
And of course the draft beer selection sold via growlers is huge.

A convenient location easy to find in a strip right next to a Western Grocery. This package store has a very broad selection of beer, many of which are available as singles. Further, many of the selections could be purchased either from the cooler unchilled. The employees were friendly and happy to help, but did not seem to know a great deal about beer.
The best feature of the store is their draft selection. They have 25+ taps and sell draft beer to go by the quart, 1/2 gallon, or gallon. The draft beer comes in plastic (think milk jug) or one can buy a glass growler for $5. The draft selection was high quality and quite varied. One could get a "six pack" of draft beer - 6 quarts of different drafts for $35.
If looking for a place to buy beer in B'ham, one could do much worse than to visit Highland Package Store.

Location is very good. Very easy to find and it's located in a very nice part of town. The shop itself is very easy to spot with bright neon signs and a nice big sign out front.
The selection was absolutely amazing. they had everything avaialable in alabama. their huge on tap selection is what actually impressed me the most. great find.
There are two downfalls to this store: the prices, which were a bit steep, and the service. I actually dont even know if the attendant knew anything about beer because when i asked about it he gave a short answer and continued watching tv.

Possibly the best selection of beer in Birmingham. If not, then definitely the place to go to get growlers filled. Highland Package Store always has a dozen high-quality beers on-tap for takeaway (1/2 gallon or gallon growlers sold at the premises, if needed) and the owner takes requests. The beer selection is stellar and changes regularly.
Yes, it's a bit pricey, but these are beers you won't find anywhere else in town except maybe Vulcan Beverage Company, and I believe their selection is a bit smaller.
Friendly knowledgeable staff; definitely recommended.
