I was in Atlanta on business for a week and stopped by Hop City to see what they are about. They are right right next to a geeky coffee place and Five Seasons Brewing Co. I parked on the street right outside. It is a great place to park since you will likely be carrying at least one case of beer out to your car like I did.
I was there on a Tuesday afternoon. There were no other customers. The guy at the desk welcomed me and asked me if I needed any suggestions. "Nope, just enjoying the view right now." What a view. For being a smaller beer/wine/homebrew store they make every square foot count. Half is beer and the other half wine.
I wondered the four aisles of beer that were divided up by style. They also have a long cooler for beer ready to drink and a Belgian beer corner. I grabbed some old favorites that were well priced compared to where I live. Then I asked for some advise on the new Fresh Hop beers and got it. Perfect service. I hate being bothered while I am looking around. If I want help I will ask for it... and this place was exactly like that.
I cannot compare it to other Atlanta beer stores since I have not visited any others, but considering the size of the store they pack a great variety of beers in there. They had breweries from all over the U.S., a decent selection of Belgian beers and then a small selection of Norwegian, Danish, Russian, German and other international beers.
It made me wish I lived nearby by to make this my local beer store. The only other place that tops it in my book is John's Marketplace in Portland.

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.
