First trip since the recent changes to the GA 6% ABV laws. Green's now has a *very* broad selection of high-gravity and other beers. As the craft beer movement has flourished in the last ten years, Green's has definitely expanded the amount and quality of beers they carry. They have gone from a few rows of macros and the well-known (larger) micros to perhaps a third of the store being filled with row-after-row of quality beers. The high-gravity Belgians are especially well represented, though some British micro-brews are increasingly available in addition to the more usual British suspects. The only significant negative was that a small number of brews seemed to turn over too slowly (dusty bottles, etc). Most of the stock looked fresh overall, however. (762 characters)

Stopped in while I was in Atlanta thanks to an email response from store owner. Really nice selection of beers that I have not tried and cannot get in Richmond. Lots of 90+ rated beers both US and abroad. Happened to.get a case of Westbrook 4th Anniversary while I wad in there. Got a bottle which was a nice surprise. Would stop again. Carried great beers like The Bruery, Prairie Artisan Ales, Terrapin, etc. Great selection. (433 characters)

Good representation of both domestic and import craft brews, with a particularly good stock of Belgians. Limited selection in coolers. Friendly, if not particularly knowledgeable service. Selection notably weaker than their Ponce de Leon (Atlanta) location. (258 characters)

I use to shop at Greens until they blatantly lied to me regarding the Terrapin Cinn'Rolled, saying that it wasnt coming until friday the 19th, when they had already recieved it on Monday the 14th....

They try to force you to join facebook, as they try to insinuate that the only method of finding out what they have, is to be a member of a site that constantly gives out personal information. Id rather call and simply ask, but apparently answering a phone call is too much work for them.

Its getting to the point where the only good liqour store here is towers, but im honestly to the verge of only buying 40's at gas stations because these stores have such pathetic customer service. I will never shop at greens again. (722 characters)

Great package store. Beer staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Prices are usually cheaper than most other places. Great variety of beer with new beers arriving every week. Tons of craft beer and a healthy selection of Belgium. I would highly recommend this store when in Atlanta. (279 characters)

As previously noted, this place is hell to get in and out of if traffic is heavy, please take note. They have an amazing bottle selection though. I was blown away. Wide array of local goodies from the South Atlantic, and beers from all over the world. They have a decent amount of beers in the fridge and many sitting on the shelf. Really nice selection.
We got there towards the end of the night and felt kind of rushed to make a selection...I guess they close at 10 or something, which I did not expect. Maybe it's the norm in this area of the country. (554 characters)

Trekked over into the madhouse of Atlanta rush hour traffic to stop by this place to look around... Dangerous as hell to get in and out of, for sure... At rush hour, it's like rolling the dice pulling out of this place...

Selection here is vast and varied... A huge wall of Belgians with several brews I'd never even heard of...Lots to choose from but I didn't see any "must haves" if you will...

I did pick up a super fresh sixer of Two Hearted, a couple of Allagash brews, and an Older Viscosity... They had a load of Mikkeller and Nogne brews as well as several selections from Founders, Bells, Great Divide and several others...

An impressive place but I think I liked Tower's a bit better. This place is great, don't get me wrong, but I drove a long way and wound up buying more over at Tower's than I did here.. (822 characters)
