I went to my favorite bottle shop today (Beverage World in Fort Oglethorpe Georgia), just to "try some different things out". While I was there one of the workers who know me due to my frequent stops, says to me "we have Founders Nemesis coming in". My response was "this week"? He responded "right now"! The distributor was there and was unloading the shipment as we spoke. I waited giddily for it all to be unloaded so I could procure my 4 pack while the store employee explained to me the state of GA got 100 cases total and he personally had acquired 3 cases.
This is just one example of how great my store is. On more than 1 occasion the employees have clued me in on what is new and what is coming in. I simply assumed Nemesis was not coming to GA and never bothered to ask about it but he knew I would be interested partly due to his beer knowledge. The great employees and awesome constantly updating selection (Hopslam, Bigfoot, Peche Mortel, Double Bastard, Oaked Yeti, St. Bernadus 12, the list goes on and on...) make me thrilled to be a patron leading me to believe (in my mind), that the greatest bottle shop on earth exists just a short hop over the border for me!
This is a destination stop and should be considered by ANYONE within at least a 100 mile radius. You will not be sorry!

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.
