So after visiting Hattiesburg many times in the last few years I finally decided to stop into The Corner Market today to pick up a six pack.
(Keep in mind this review is done from the point of view that Miss craft beer scene is very young and pretty small still, it would not be fair to compare it to a store say in San Diego)
For a beer person this is the place to shop for beer to buy in package form in Hattiesburg, hands down.
When you walk in it has the feel and look of a typical small Miss town grocery store. My first thought was no way there will be a decent beer selection. I was wrong. After you walk in turn left and to the far front corner. The beer section is about 200 sq ft, big for a Miss store. The pick six section has alot of variety, you will find something to like here. I have seen less beer selection in the Super Wal-mart say in Madison.
So if you are passing through Hattiesburg for the night, stop by Keg and Barrel to go out for beer and food, or stop by The Corner Market if you are tired from traveling and just want to veg out in the hotel room for the night while trying some local beer.

The first pick six place in town, and stocks a good selection of premium bombers and four-packs; however, they are totally without knowledge about beer. The distributors do all the work, so you have to make an effort to find the good stuff, which tends to get buried around corners and in the back.
Some people take advantage of the pick six and cannibalize from right off the shelf. This can really screw the honest beer purchaser. Caveat emptor- your specialty four pack can be filled with something other than you expected (especially prevalent with Lazy Magnolia, because their six packs cost $8.99, and the pick six is $7.99, and the Lazy Mag seasonals come in four packs at $10.99).
This is a shame, but the Roberts company has not prioritized beer. This is as close as we're going to get to a bottle shop in Hattiesburg, though.

My go-to place for beer in Hattiesburg. Being from beer deprived Mississippi, the Corner Market has about the best selection of take home beer in town. They keep a pretty good rotation going, and you tend to see staples like Sierra Nevada, Anchor, Flying Dog and our home state brew, Lazy Magnolia. They usually have a pretty decent selection of LM Party Pigs, and the price on these are well withing reason, around $30 plus tax. The beauty of Corner Market is the build your own six pack for $7.99. This is real nice for when you just want to mix things up a bit. Overall, I enjoy my experiences at the Corner Market, and the fact that it is only a half a mile from my house makes it all the better.

Back when I lived in Hattiesburg, this was the one place I would go for beer. There literally was not a store that offered as much as Corner Market.
Now that I live in New England, however, I am spoiled with libraries of beer. But for the sake of those who are limited to the Hattiesburg area, I'd say Corner Market is your best bet.
It's selection is limited, mostly popular micros (Abita, Rogue, Flying Dog, Anchor, Sierra Nevada, Sam Adams, etc.) and a decent selection of imports (Warsteiner, Guinness's line, Hoegaarden, etc.) - they also usually carry a few party pigs of Lazy Magnolia. But what makes it unique is they sold everything in singles. Building your own six-pack allows people who enjoy trying new things a great way to explore what little Corner Market has to offer; it makes a small selection suddenly versatile and wide open to various possibilities.
I also enjoyed the low prices that Corner Market has. So if you are in the area, and are looking for more than a case of Killians, check out Corner Market. You might be surprised by what they have to offer.

Best place for buying beer in Hattiesburg. Starting to see some different things showing up. Build your own six pack is worth while, especially if you are trying something for the first time. The cost for the build your own is 8$ while some of the 6 packs are over 9$ (you would make out by just creating a sixpack of the Rogues they have that day). Was hoping they would price Abita a bit cheaper (Thirsty Hippo has 3 or 4 Abitas on top for about the same as what you buy per bottle at the grocery stores).

May be the best place in Hattiesburg to buy beer. They offer a great selection with the ability to build your own Mix Pack Six Pack out of most every beer the the carry. If anyone is looking for beer in Hattiesburg, this should be the first stop. Hopefully when the law changes and we get an increase from 6% by volume / 5% by weight for the state, The Corner Market will follow by carrying a grand assortment of higher gravity craft beers. Still, in Hattiesburg this should be your first stop when looking for beer.

The Corner Market has arguably the best bottled beer selection in Hattiesburg. All the beer is in the front right corner of the store, with the majority of it on the cooler shelves. Turnover on macro and popular craft beers is high enough, but if you're buying something hoppy (especially Flying Dog or Anchor Liberty), grab from the back, as those might've been there a while. Service is as expected for a grocery store, though the manager was very nice when I asked if they could get Flying Dog Snake Dog IPA (which they did, after a few months). Selection is as good as it gets, given our horrible alcohol cap (6%) and equally lazy distributors. We've got Flying Dog amber, wheat, pale ale, IPA, and golden lager; Rogue American Amber, Mocha Porter, and St. Rogue Red Ale; Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and Wheat; Abita Turbodog, Amber, Purple Haze, and seasonal; Anchor Steam, Liberty, and Porter; Paulaner, Spaten, some Sam Adams, etc. They also usually have Lazy Magnolia party pigs, and they always have LM Southern Pecan in bottles. The only beers that they could get and don't are the Rogue bombers and Lindemann's lambics. Being able to make a mixed six pack is nice, and the prices are very reasonable ($7.50-$10 per sixer).
