it is beer heaven, a man could get lost for hours in a place like this which is remarkable considering it's a pretty small store but they pack a wallop into their limited space and I challenge anybody to go in there and not come out with something new, interesting and delicious, the staff are great too

I've been to the Atlanta location quite a few times and was curious to see how the Birmingham location compared when I was passing through town on a business trip. The selection was great and I was able to try several locals that aren't available in GA (first time trying Good People). They had a ton of Jester King sours on the shelf that wouldn't have lasted a day in most bottle shops in the Atlanta area. I haven't even been able to find those traveling around TX. Will definitely stop here anytime I'm driving through town.

I’m always impressed with the selection and quality of Hop City Birmingham. A beer snob could spend hours in here trying to decide what to buy.
The tap area also has a nice selection of local beers, which I appreciate.
The staff is friendly and helpful as well. I came on a busy Saturday and they were willing to serve me.

I am a regular here and Hop City rules. They have everything in package available in the state and they do a great job of showcasing the local breweries in state. A growler wall with 60 taps is hard to beat. Great service from the staff, Jay and Josh are top notch.

Great, well rounded selection divided by type and a very knowledgeable staff who are eager to help educate. They have a broad wine selection and about 50 beers on tap as well. For a city the size of Birmingham, this is as good as it gets. Highly recommended.

Fairly easy to get to off I-65. Definitely worth a stop if you are passing through Birmingham. Easily combined with a stop at Good People.

Beautiful looking store with a nice layout. Single bottles are available if you don't want a six. Some nice selections that I can't find back in Ohio, including some good options from Jester King, Straight to Ale, lots of Westbrook and Evil Twin.

I was disappointed in the lack of local choices, but that wasn't really the fault of Hop City as I was told Beer Engineers and Good People are not consistently bottling their best beers. Also found several IPAs dated from January (I visited the store on Memorial Day)

Overall, they do a good job getting a great selection. Highly recommended!
