Very nice industrial styled store front. Inside of store is clean and orderly. Staff is pleasant and helpful. I had my young daugher with me, so I didn't have the time or ability to ask questions or browse for any significant amount of time. Selection is excellent. As mentioned in other reviews, it is organized by style. I think they have everything that is available in Alabama. I had not seen Clown Shoes, Jester King or Ballast Point in Alabama prior to this visit, so that was exciting. Large number of taps along back wall and lots of people hanging out and sampling different brews.
This is a world class place and I plan to visit whenever we are in Birmingham. (670 characters)

Absolutely great experience. They do a great job at helping their customer's find a great brew for their taste. One of my favorite growler filling shops. (155 characters)

A great bottle shop, Growler station, even home brewing supplies store. During busy times, the growler station can be a little bit of wait for a fill, but the on-tap (60) selection is very good. They also have a big selection of wine to keep the wine enthusiast busy while you have a beer. These guys know beer, which you would expect, but I have been to some bottle shops where the knowledge is lacking. Alabama was very late to the craft beer party, and Hop City is helping the scene catch up. (500 characters)

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 (303 characters)

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. (532 characters)

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. (327 characters)
