The best beer store in Atlanta, period. Every time I visit, I am more impressed. There are other places in town that sell good beer, but at this place, it feels more like a labor of love. The best place to get Belgians (especially Lambics) in town, they also excel in the German imports and American micros. If any beer is sold in the state of Georgia, there is a good bet Green's has it in stock. The Buford Highway location is much better than the Ponce location due to the employee dedication If you are ever in town and have to visit one store, make it this one. If you know your beers, this is the place to go, because they love stocking it all.

If you expect hand holding kind of service when you visit this place, you might be a little disappointed, unless Adam Tolsma is in. Everyone is always friendly, and cordial, but they pretty much leave you alone unless you ask for help.

Apart from the great selection, the prices are very good as well. A discount is given if you use cash or debit card. If you buy more than 12 singles or four sixpacks, another discount applies on top. The single most importatnt beer shopping stop in Atlanta is here. Nobody else need apply.

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.

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.

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.
