A great east side option, second to Hop City in size and offerings but they are very helpful and knowledgeable. Good glass selection, growlers and some gourmet foods, although beer is their main game. My bet is they will have something you like. proximity to farmers market, Revolution Doughnuts, and Decatur area makes this worth a trip for entertaining foodies on a visit to ATL

Ale Yeah! is a rather small operation. The beers are divided into "aisles" according to style (I say "aisles" because the aisles are only one shelf deep.) IPAs, Stouts, Belgians, etc. There is a good selection of product across the styles, but not an overly deep selection. For example, they have Stone IPA, Westbrook IPA, Sierra Nevada Torpedo, and Jai Alai, but they don't have Ruination, Levitation, Enjoy By, etc. So, in general each brewery is represented by only 2 or 3 of their beers. The major exception to this is Terrapin, for which they seem to have every beer you don't want and none of the beers you do want (I'm looking at you Cinn Roll WnB). Prices are about 10-20% higher than what I am used to, resulting in a dollar or two more for a 6 pack. However, locally produced bombers were relatively cheap, most being in the $7-$8 range.
There is a growler station in the back. If I recall there was about 10-12 taps on. Samples available for $1. 32oz and 64oz growlers available for sale, though they will fill outside growlers as well. 64oz growlers ranged in price from $8 - $14.
Service is helpful and attentive, though limited in knowledge: my question as to whether a particular IPA was East Coast or West Coast resulted in a question back to me regarding the difference between an East Coast and a West Coast IPA. Oh well, I guess Georgia is still relatively new to the scene, so they're still learning.
Of note, I came here at the recommendation of a friend who lives in the area whom is into craft beer, but isn't a BA-using craft beer geek. My friend lives less than two miles from here and notes this is his go-to beer store, but also notes when he is looking for more, he heads up to Hop City (which I didn't visit). In the end, this store was more than sufficient for my needs as someone passing through the area, but really isn't a World Class destination.
