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. (1,183 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)
