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.

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.

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.

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.

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..

Stop number two....didn't look like much from the outside, but was real nice inside, very clean. Staff was very friendly and I saw them helping other customers, though I didn't ask any questions. I saw a shelf FULL of Devil Dancer for the bargain price of 17.99, but I didn't pick any up. Good selection of Founders, Port, Sweetwater, New Belgium, and the usual. Huge selection of Belgians too...I believe they had the entire Mikkeller single hop line, though I didn't pick any up. Got a couple bombers and was on my way. Would definitely stop by again.

I love Green's! It's located on buford highway right near sidney marcus, so I can usually make it be on my way home to Sandy Springs from anywhere in midtown/little 5/etc.
They have an amazing selection of craft beer and you really can't beat the prices. If you pay in cash, it's a little cheaper even, so definitely bring plenty of cash. You're gonna end up buying more than you meant to. I consider 5 points bottle shop in Athens to be one of the top places to buy beer in the state, but I've found things at Green's that I've never seen there.
The people who work there aren't very interested in the customers and they don't seem too knowledgeable, so it helps if you kind of know what you're looking for or if you just have a lot of time to browse.
Green's is great. I always leave with something new and exciting.

I go to Green's on Buford quite often. It's in a convenient location near 400 and I85. Plenty of parking and decently clean on the inside, but certainly nothing special.
I've never really had any problems with quality here. The IPAs are generally stored in the coolers, which is nice. Everything else is quite far from any sunlight.
The service is generally solid, but not particularly knowledgeable. Most times there is a guy there, I assume a manager of some sort, that will help me find what I need if I ask.
The selection is quite amazing. There is a great Belgian selection along with other imports (HUGE Mikkeller selection). The craft selection is equally as impressive. This place probably has the best selection on any given day in the city of Atlanta (sorry, Hop City - you're the "go to" for so many people your stock runs dry pretty quickly for the more sought after beers).
If you know what you want, this place is great. You won't find great service here, but it's certainly better than the Ponce store.
