This place, is an absolute gem. A real diamond in the rough.

The town of Ft. Oglethorpe is not beer central. I couldn't even tell you the closest production brewery (Terrapin maybe?). It looks very much like a small country city where the economy has taken a hard dump.

And then, there's Beverage World.

Tucked beside a Food Lion and a Big Lot's, on the outside Beverage World looks like a slightly junky lotto ticket, tobacco and cheap beer store. Even once you step inside, the first impression will be slightly dim as the front of the store is mostly crap.

Take 8 steps though, and you walk into Beervana. Everything imaginable that you can get in the area: Stone, Great Divide, Founders, Port/LostAbbey, Smuttynose, Duck Rabbit, the list goes on and on. The place appears to be organized by brand. They have a great mix six shelf, as well as some coolers filled with things.

And most of all, fantastic help. I spotted a worker there sporting a BeerAdvocate shirt and knew who to talk too immediately. His name was Sam, and not only was he willing to show me some rarities and pull some things from the back stash for me, he was extremely knowledgeable about beer and could talk about the culture.

Honestly, My expectations were low. But even knowing of the A+ rating this place had here on BA, I was blown away. Incredible service, value, and selection. Can't say enough about Beverage World besides I wish it was closer!

Some good news is they are soon expanding to a much larger and re-innovated area beside them. This place may soon be the absolute best beer store in the SouthEast, and competitive across the globe.

GREAT PLACE!!! I feel like a kid in an adult beverage store... BEWARE: It's easy to drop a ton of money quickly if you're not careful. Not because they are overly priced, but because everywhere you turn there is something worth giving the ole "college try!" They handle everything from beer, the proper glass for it, and all the way to getting into brewing your favorite style yourself (my next big adventure). They even have a section for wine... just in case anyone riding with you doesn't understand BEERY GOODNESS! They thought of EVERYTHING!!!!

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.
