First and foremost this is a liquor and wine store. The entrance to the store is always into those two areas and the beer is way in back. On the weekends there is a female liquor rep (scantily clad) trying to get you to buy their chosen potion. The problem is that they don't let you sample...just look at the girl and buy the booze. Anyway...the beer selection is pretty good and well organized. Tons of local brews for really good prices and they do really good with the seasonal craft beers. If you're a local make sure to sign up for their frequent shopper program. They have a monthly beer special that gets you a dollar or two off and you also get a matching glass from the brewery.

On my way to my hotel from a trip to Green's on Buford and I remember seeing this place on BA so I whipped in to give it a look.. So glad I did...
Beer is located in the back of the store and there's a ton of it... Rack after rack of bomber and sixers... Most of the beer is room temp which irks me a touch but it is what it is...
Very nice selection of sours and wild ales all together so I hit it up right off... Picked up a Girardin Black Label and a Cuvee Rene..
Beer seems to be separated by brand and type so it makes it easy to find a particular beer from a particular brewer... Found a lone bottle of Lost Abbey Deliverance as well so I snagged that one also...
Came across several bottle of Courage and snagged two of those along with some Brew Free or Die IPA, a Wilco Tango Foxtrot and an Allagash Curieux...
Nice beer run for me and I thought this place outshone Green's.. Green's might have had more Belgians but the ones at Tower's just seemed to be better quality to me...
Easily the best place I've stopped thus far in the city...

This was my first beer stop in Atlanta, and I was satisfied. They had a very nice selection of Belgians, a huge selection of locals, and the usual distro brands: Founders, Ommegang, etc. Picked up an Aphrodite, a fresh Maharaja, a Sorachi Ace (which I hadn't seen back home in PA for months), and a fresh La Folie. The cashier was very pleasant, and the rest of the staff seemed very eager to help, though I didn't ask for anything. Store was very clean and everything was priced reasonably. Either this or Greens was the best of the four stores I visited.

It is one of two places I frequent in Atlanta. The other being Green's on Buford Highway. They have quality selection and area always getting new stuff in. Also have some excellent deals every once in a while. The people that work there are awesome. This is the one thing that definitely separates them from my experiences at Green's. There is always someone that asks me if I need any help. The guy that runs the beer section is extremely knowledgeable and has good recommendations. The prices are definitely right on par with the cheapest I have seen in Atlanta. They also have a great liquor selection to accommodate a really good beer selection. They have an entire side of a rack dedicated to Belgian beers. The other side of the rack contains the remainder of the bombers they offer. They are also on top of getting things when they are first available. I know if they don't have it then I won't be finding it anywhere else.
