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.

Nice shop, right in the Krog Market space, which is a place well worth visiting. Great selection of local and international stuff, sixers, bombers, etc. The pick-six wall, I'd give it a B+.

I found this place on this website as I was commit to Atlanta for a business conference and I loved it. Very large craft beer as well as a wine selection. I told one of the guys working there that I was a BA and he took me around the store helping me pick out some really good local beers. I had to take Uber to get there from my downtown hotel but it was well worth the trip

Absolutely great place! I stopped here on the way to Florida, and I'm really glad I did. The selection is GREAT. I've only been to one other place that rivaled the inventory of this one!

I was a bit skeptical about this place. I've been to too many disappointing "world-class" shops, but this place is legitimately world class.

It's a wine and bier store, and both are given a great focus. Everything is arranged by styles.

Knowing nothing of the SE brewing scene, I asked for some suggestions. I ended up having a really awesome conversation about brewing and bier while I was given a tour of all the offerings from local breweries. Fantastic knowledge, and a great attitude; openly admitting when they were expressing a personal preference, and really trying to zero in on the types of things I would be interested in (as opposed to simply what is popular). An absolutely excellent guy.

The selection, meanwhile, was very, very impressive. I could be kept busy here for months!

AND, they let you make a split 6-pack out of anything you want!
I got a 6'er of all my suggestions, and they have been all on target.

If you're in the Atlanta area, this is a must if you can bring bottles back, or you have time to sit down and drink a few.

I've been to MANY bottle shops in my days, but Hop City might be the best of them all. This place is absolutely HUGE!!! Everything is divided by beer style so it makes it easy to find what you're looking for. All of the employees are extremely friendly and helpful. Aside from the huge selection of bottles, they have a growler fill station, and a large home brewing section. I will definitely be stopping by here again when I'm in the area.

The staff here are awesome, can talk to them with just about anything. don't forget to check their adopt-a-beer section too, good for those who don't want a beer pack of just one kind.

Their beer selection is amazing.
A very convenient place to buy home b few supplies.
The only negative thing that I have to say about this place is that they do not refrigerate or freeze their hops. They are stored at room temperature.
