Not much more to be said here. Everything I wanted that was available was here, service was great, store was nice, orderly and clean and location was near once of the nicer breweries in town. Prices were better than some of the other nice beer stores in the South. A must for the beer tourist.

THE place to buy your beer in Atlanta as far as I'm concerned. Great selection and great staff who know their beer and won't pester you. They get all the big releases and have a fair system in place for acquiring them. They have a Twitter account that keeps you updated on new offerings. If a beer is available in Georgia odds are they have it. See a beer that intrigues you but don't want to spend the money on a sixer? No problem, they'll break a single out for you. Excellent growler selection. If you're a wine drinker they have a nice selection of eclectic wines, too. They also sell home brewing supplies. Top notch selection, top notch staff, top notch downtown location. This place has a 100 point rating for a reason. Check them out.

Got there after a meeting with a customer, pretty great selection of beer, good prices, and the guys at the store were pretty knowledgeable and were able to take some choices to pick up some beers that i didn't had on my list.
Staff its really friendly, beer its well organized in to styles and that helps a lot.

I would highly recommend Hop City. They probably have the best selection in Atlanta. The first time I went when I moved to Atlanta, it was like Disney World. Hop City makes a great first impression and at the end of the day is one of the most reliable stores in town. It would probably easily win the award for "best" beer store in the state of Georgia.

Constructive criticism:
Their beer is sorted by style and there is so much selection that it can be hard to find. There staff is eager to help, but it seems like they always assume that they know much more about beer than you (which I assume they do, but I would rather them not talk down to me). That being said, they are very knowledgeable and reasonably priced. They do let you get singles, but prefer that you buy off of the singles shelf.

Like I said, it is the Disney World of beer stores, especially in the Southeast. Everyone goes to Hop City for special releases so I don't even bother. I do really like this place and go whenever I can. I do occasionally go out of my way to check out Hop City's unparalleled selection.

Wow! Visiting from Maryland, and heard this was one of the best places in town to buy good brews. I was not dissapointed. This store is primarily dedicated to beer, although having a descent selection of wine as well. Beer is sold as singled or in packs. If you don't see the beer you want in the singles isle you can pick one out of the pack and buy it as a single. They also have growlers for sale at VERY reasonable prices. The selection was outstanding compared to what I have in Maryland. Also, the 5 seasons brew pub is next door, and is a great place for good beer and great food. I highly recommend Hop City to anyone that lives or is visiting the Atlanta area. I make the trip to ATL once a year and will definitely make this a regular stop.

My wife and I are new to Atlanta and we found this gem on Foursquare. They offer a HUGE variety of beers from all over the world...and then a great wine selection as well! My favorite part of the store is the knowledge of the staff...second to none! They really know their beers and make it a point to have craft brewers from all over the country come by when they're in town to educate the staff. They offer home brewing classes each Saturday for the home brewing crowd and also have Growlertown to fill up your growler. I believe it was around 60 taps last I checked! Thank God I only work a mile from the place!

In a trendy part of town, this is the place to go for craft beer. The only thing missing is the ability to drink and sample from Growlertown, like they do at Hop City in Birmingham. I think the mothership in Atlanta makes up for that in selection, especially hard to find beers.

The staff is friendly, very knowledgeable and will go out of their way to suggest things for you to try. No beer snobbery here.

Growlertown is overflowing with out of the world selections.

Wish I lived here. They'd see me quite often.

One of the best beer palaces in the south. Don't miss it when you're in town.

5 stars for the insane craft beer selection. Over the top good. Just rows and rows of bottles and cans of the good stuff. But beyond quantity, the quality of the selection was absurd.

Hard-to-find American craft, a wealth of imports from every part of the world, I could easily have spent $1000 in here and not walked away with everything I wanted. Just to give an idea of what one can find, I picked up cans of Westbrook Brewing's Gose and Rye PA, Southern Tier Pumking, and a few bombers from local breweries Jailhouse, Terrapin and Sweetwater. But this was after a swift run through; If given an hour, I would've really found some obscure gems. I know it.

Anyhow, the prices were pretty fair and there were lots of bottles on sale. Also, the mix a sixer option had a lot of gems.

There also is a growler fill section with its own impressive selection of brews divided by style. The prices were fair, so if I had the privilege of living in ATL, I'd probably be in here a few times a week.

I did notice wine for sale as well, but this beergeek didn't even bother to check that section.

Finally, the service was friendly and free of snobbery, something deserving of some recognition.

Overall, Hop City is the model bottle shop, beer geek haven. If only my hometown had something similar.

I stopped at HopCity for the first time while driving through Atlanta yesterday. I've heard a lot of good things about the store, but I live south of town and don't get up to the downtown area all that often. The staff was extremely knowledgable and helpful. I wish I would have had more time to browse around. Their selection was outstanding! I was able to pick up some Westbrook stuff that hasn't made it down to the southern suburbs yet and snagged some Red Brick 20th anniversary stout. From now on, when I'm in the downtown area, I'll be making a point to swing by there.

The selection here was incredible. Visited tonight after looking on Beer Advocate for a local place to buy some beer as I'm here all week. The staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful, as I told them I was in "shock and awe" of their establishment and didn't even know where to start. Helped me pick some good local beers, and I finally got to try some of the Westbrook Brewing Co. IPA. Easily one of (if not the) nicest beer stores I've ever been to.
