A pretty good sized place located just barely in the state of Georgia. There were actually 2 entrances, one saying Beverage World and the other Tobacco for Less. I was on a road trip from Boston to New Orleans. I called ahead mainly looking for Duck Rabbit, I spoke with the beer manager and he just told me what they had in stock.

I arrived and did a couple of quick laps around the show room. The manager found me and asked if I needed Help, I told him I had called and he informed me that he was the one I spoke to. and he got me a couple of boxes to put the six packs in. I ended up getting a case of Duck Rabbit, (2 Baltic Porters and 2 Barleywines). He didn't have a whole lot in stock, he said there was more on the way, unfortunately it was a bad time to be looking for Duck Rabbit, but I glad to get some.

The selection overall was really good. All of the heavy hitters were there and full stock (Stone, Rogue, Sam Adams, Seirra Nevada ect.) But there were also some other breweries that weren't very big, Smuttynose, Bell's, New Belgium Avery and so on. A good selection from the midwest and all down the east coast. What impressed me the most is how much from each brewery they had, it runs deep. There was a refrigerated section and a room temp section both close to equal in size. There was also a good selection of beer glasses in the back.

All in all it's a pretty good place to check out. I would definitely go back if I was in the area again, not too likely but I hope to if Duck Rabbit never comes to MA.

The manager was pretty nice too, he informed me the place was expanding which is good for them, I'm not surprised, I hope they do well.

You're cheating yourself if you're a beer lover and you skip out on this place.

I can imagine this is the go to place in the Chattanooga area, especially since Georgia has much better distribution than Tennessee. I was skeptical when I pulled up to the store because the location is not great, but the inside of the store is clean and well-organized, while the staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. They also have about 8-10 beers on tap with some great options such as Founders and Terrapin. I have made repeat visits to this store looking for beers that may no longer be available in the Atlanta market and will continue to track their business when I travel between Atlanta, Knoxville, and Nashville.

This is the best place in the Chatt. area to get some great beers. Service is good and they are always more than willing to help you out with any questions you might have. They are also very friendly. I try to make a monthly trip to stock up on some good stuff.

Great place to go. I am wanting to try some of the different styles of beers and I know this place will help me out. I have always wanted to try the home brewing also so I will work toward getting the stuff for that and they have all that here. Mitul does a great job at this store and I wish him all the luck with the mess in Fort O right now. If you want good service and good prices go here. Its worth the trip. He will do you right!!

If you live in the Chattanooga/NW Georgia area and haven't been to Beverage World, you've slept on this place long enough. Stop what you're doing right now and get there as fast as you can. By far the biggest & highest quality selection in the area. The store being in GA gives them a HUGE advantage over the Chattanooga stores.

Everything is arranged mostly by style. They also have two big coolers. One is full of standard domestic & imports. The other is full of all craft beer including a door full of IPAs which is HUGE for me. I love being able to grab a chilled IPA vs one that could've been sitting on the shelf unchilled for months. They also have a cellar with a glass door displaying a few shelves of vintages which are pretty regularly rotating, awesome! They have a mix-a-six rack of singles and you get a 10% discount on a mixed sixer. They have a 20-tap growler station and will soon be allowed to start offering up to three 1 oz. samples per day to each customer. In the back corner they have a small homebrew section which they are building up. They have a nice selection of glassware and give a free glass with a $100 craft beer purchase. Last time I got one the free glass was the etched DFH glass, very nice. They also carry a decent amount of Champagne and wine.

The staff is very friendly and the main dude Sam is very knowledgeable. They update their facebook more often than their website. They post all their new arrivals and every new keg they tap on their facebook page. They also do a good job of rationing out low volume shipments to allow as many people as possible to get some.

They typically have everyone in the area beat on price. I've only noticed them get beat on price a couple times.

Go there! But beware no alcohol sales on Sunday. You can still buy homebrew supplies on Sunday though.
