We stopped here to pick up some beers to bring back to the northeast with us. They have a large beer selection with what I can only assume is everything available in Atlanta. They had all the GA breweries represented, along with a lot of stuff I cannot get in New England. I picked up a 6 pack of Red Brick Brown Ale, a 4 pack of Red Brick Double Chocolate Porter, a 6 pack of Bell's Kalamazoo Stout, and a bottle each of Avery Brabant, Terrapin 90 Schelling, Terrapin Monk's Revenge, New Belgium 1554, Fat Tire, and French Broad Altbier all for a little over $60.

I was disappointed I couldn't mix 6 packs as I would have bought a larger selection of beer (I wish I had bought more Terrapin beers). I was also very disappointed with the woman at the counter. She seemed absolutely miserable.

Huge store that looks kind of ghetto from the outside but I was very impressed with their HUGE selection of craft beers and their huge bomber selection. Staff was not very friendly. Not at all actually. But I would return if nothing but for their selection only.

This is a place I avoided (not great neighborhood or people) until I realized they had a large walkin cooler in the back with tons of single beer selections. The sour selection is the best I have found in Atlanta. But not just sours, basically a very large and diverse selection of quality beers. They have an ipad set up in the cooler with BA open to look up new or unfamiliar beers. Prices are quite good also. I actually drive all the way downtown (45 minutes) just to get beer here.

I live OTP Atlanta and don't get into town all that often, but when I do, I always try to hit Green's. It doesn't hurt that it's right across the street from one of my favorite fast food joints (Chipotle). The selection is outstanding with a lot of cooler space. There's a large walk-in cooler in the back with a lot of good stouts, Belgian, and sours. I've never had much interaction with the staff, so I'm not sure how knowledgeable they are. They don't do singles or mix-a-six. I don't get there often enough to catch any special releases. The only negative is they charge a higher price for using a credit card, which I thought was illegal, but somehow they get away with it.

Atmosphere is a bit ghetto as it sits next to a Kroger once penned "Murder Kroger" because of transients. Service was semi knowledgeable but pleasant. The selection and price are great and that makes it more than worth the trip. It's also a reasonable convenient location, which helps. No food.

If you happen to be around midtown its a great place to stop.
The area its not the most fancy one and i happened to drive by when on my way to the Wrecking Pub, they got a pretty good selection of local and imports, great prices when compared to Wine and More and even some sales, i got an Ommegang box with 3 or 4 beers + a glass for a mere 11 bucks, they have a pretty good selection of Belgian beers on a separated room and even there they had some stuff on sale.
Didn't ask for help but it appears only a couple of the employees know their trade

Since Green's has added a walk in beer cooler full of single beers I've been going there at least 3 times a week. There's prob around 500 different beers there from all over the world so there is a great selection to choose from. In the room they also have a table set up on beer advocate so it makes it great to do a quick look up on a new beer. they also have a cash and debit price so bring cash to get a better deal. outside of the walk in cooler they also have a decent selection of 4 packs and six packs that are not you typical grocery store beers. As far as knowledgeable beer associates its kinda hard to find one. Not to sound racist by any means but this location is kinda in the ghetto and mostly black people working there and none of them have ever been any help with picking out a new beer, but the two white guys I've seen working there have been very knowledgeable of the beers they have, again not to be racist but that is just how it is there ;P . the staff has always been very friendly and it is a total pleasure to shop here. I go here instead of the larger beer/liquor stores like tower wine.

Green's will also order in a case of bottles if you are looking for something that they don"t carry. so just let them know and in a week or so they should have some available.

Atmosphere: I mean, it's a beer/booze store, so not much to say - it's in a neighborhood that is kind of on the cusp of decent (getting a little bourgeois) to rough (I wouldn't walk there at night unless I was carrying). The store is cool though, decently organized. I do wish there was more space, though. It's tight in spots but being in the middle of a city, you do what you've gotta do with the space available.

Quality: Fair, lots of Georgia beers along with the BMC stuff, but there's a walk-in cooler with their Belgians and some other imports. If I had more of a disposal income, I'd make a dent in it.

Service: Again, not a whole lot to say about it -- they don't really do much other than stock the shelves and check out the customers, but at this point in my life, that's all I ask for.

Selection: Hinted at above, lots of Georgia beers and a decent selection of imports in the cooler. Also, on a side note, decent whiskey/bourbon selection that always draws my attention as well -- getting some stuff from distilleries I didn't think I'd find outside of KY.

Food: N/A

Value: Decent - carry cash if you want the better price on items though as they've got a discount offered for those that pay with the green stuff. I don't think anyone would walk out feeling ripped off.
