This is easily the best craft beer store I have ever been to.
First and foremost is quality. I have never had problems with beer quality here, which I have had multiple issues at other craft beer stores in the Atlanta area. Their beer is all fresh, and I would not hesitate to bring it back if the quality was not up to par, as I know this is what they'd want me to do.
The service is excellent. The people that work here know their stuff. They are more than happy to walk around with you and help you with your selection, whether you are a beer amateur or the most experienced of craft beer drinkers.
The selection is about as good as it can get for Atlanta distribution. They are American craft and Belgian focused, but that is what I am looking for, anyways. My only complaint is how quickly they run out of limited releases. This certainly has to do with the quality and popularity, along with them being fairly new to the market. Distributors: please give these guys more limited release cases! They deserve them. They also have a decent selection of homebrew equipment. New to Atlanta and Hop City is growlers. They have about 50 beers on tap at any point and have gotten some fairly impressive beers, many of which are not bottled. I particularly enjoy how they are focused to have local beers on growler, in particular local non-bottled beer.
You may pay a 5% premium to buy here, but it is worth it. Friendly, helpful service combined with a great selection of quality brews. This is the kind of place that can help establish Atlanta's beer scene and expose craft beer to a lot of Atlantans.

I am a big Hop City fan, and have made it to the Atlanta store a few times. Craig is very knowledgeable and friendly, he generally recognizes me from the Bham store as well. The store seems a little cramped, but it is because it is overflowing with beer! I stop her to get brands I cannot get in Alabama. It is a great experience for beer lovers!
