Stopped in last night! Let's give'r a go, shall we?
Parking is directly alongside College Ave in Decatur, with several spaces directly in front of the building and a make-your-own parking gravel area on the other side of the road. I lucked out with a proper parking spot, but be careful, as you're backing out on a busy road. I suggest just gunning it!
A very cozy location, very boutique (beertique?) in size and scope. Along the walls are various wooden shelving dedicated to sections of styles - IPA's/DIPA's, Porters/Stouts, Sours, etc. A few coolers in the back house some scattered single bottles, as does a shelving unit beside the register.
A variety of glassware is available for purchase, as are some Ale Yeah! apparel and logo pint glasses. There's a small portion of the store dedicated to homebrew supplies and, if you're in need of a dairy-based snack, a variety of cheeses from Sweet Grass Dairy in southern Georgia.
Due to their size, it'll be hard for them to compete with the selection of Green's, which is only a few miles away, or Hop City on the other side of downtown. Same with the prices, which were a bit more than other stores. One complaint regarding the pricing is that a portion of the selection had no price tags on them whatsoever. I have no interest in carting around several unmarked bottles by the register to find out how much they cost.
This location will definitely need some love from the locals and hopefully benefit from their relatively close proximity to Brick Store Pub and Twain's. Best of luck to'm!

The Roswell location was so great that I had to check out Decatur... It seems a little bigger than Roswell, but with a slightly less interesting ambiance. Same setup as Roswell - beers sorted by style, about 12 beer taps, etc. I'm sure that if I lived in the area I would frequent the store. They do get distribution earlier in the week compared to Roswell. It is a pretty neat location with a small business feel - definitely, the type of place I like to buy from.

My aunt and uncle live near hear and otherwise I may never have came in, but I am certainly glad I did. The people here are very helpful and incredibly knowledgeable of I'd say almost all their beers. It's a little cramped but the overall experience is great. Some people may compare it to Hop City just up the road but Ale Yeah! has more of a personable touch to me. Can't wait till my next visit!

It was not planned, I swear, but we just *happened* to drive right by the Decatur location of Ale Yeah!... what could I do? The wife went next door to get some gourmet coffee.
This shop is bigger and cleaner-looking than the one in Roswell, but less interesting. Beers are neatly and clearly divided in shelves by styles (including shelves for Porter and Stout, I love it).
No rare releases, unlike Roswell. Mostly regular stuff. Lips of Faith Imperial Coffee Chocolate Stout was one of the rarer brews I spotted, along with Bruery Smoking Wood. They sell singles and growlers, fifteen taps, and service is super nice, almost unctuous.
They sell local cheese and charcuterie, which is a big plus. Overall, a good stop, but not the best store I’ve been to in the ATL.
