The Ponce de Leon location of Green's Discount Beverage Store is located to the northeast of downtown Atlanta. The less adventurous type may not necessarily feel safe going to this location by themselves, but the average person who is not afraid of "The City" shouldn't feel very threatened at this location. The store is a package liquor store that has wine, spirits, and beer (on the right hand side from the entrance, and around the corner to the end of the store). The beer section may seem slightly cramped if there are a lot of people, especially towards the back of the beer section where the outside wall of the building comes closer to the coolers. There is another Green's location in Atlanta on Buford Hwy, but this review is only for the Ponce de Leon location.

Quality - Most of the beers that we bought at Green's were of high quality when we drank them. It seemed like there would be a decent turnover of products in the store, although there were a few beers on the shelves that looked like they might have been sitting there for quite a while. This Green's location does feature a temperature controlled beer cellar which is home to a rather nice selection of Belgian beers as well as a few other choice products.

Service - The store was busy for most of our visit in the late afternoon, but the employees were helpful once you had waited for them to assist you. One nice thing to know that we were told by several employees was that you can receive a discount if you pay with cash instead of credit. Good information to know for next time.

Selection - You'll probably be pleased at the selection of products and breweries you see on the shelves, but you'll be in beer heaven when you find the temperature controlled beer cellar closer to the non-beer portions of the store. Be careful in here... it can be a tight fit with three or more people. Our visit was during the winter holiday season, so there were lots of appropriate seasonal options available. There were beers from Terrapin, Great Divide, Ommegang, Sweetwater, and Allagash, as well as many other domestic and international breweries.

Value - While the beers here did not have the lowest prices I have ever seen, the value was pretty good for a location inside the city. The extra discount you can receive for paying with cash knocks this one over the top in terms of value, and the available selection makes this a must stop shop for a visit into Atlanta.

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.
