Vibe: I lived in Athens for almost 7 years and this place has evolved, but it is hands down one of the dopest places to visit when you are in town. It's down to earth and packed in like a home cellar with a cozy feeling.

Quality: Let's face it, this is a bottle shop with a large collection so you have to be aware of some bottles that have been dry rotting on the shelves, but for the most part you can't miss. Most of the cooler beers are fresh and they appropriately shelve ageable beers.

Service: The service is great, not intrusive, but they care about what you're purchasing.

Selection: When Charlie was around this place had some unexpected goodies, don't expect any less now, but the selection seems to have died down a bit, or maybe I just became a bigger snob. Still hands down one of the best places to find odd ball beers.

Food: N/A

Overall: A lot of the other shops have really stepped up, but this is a must stop. 5pts holds a place in my heart, and I'm sure it will for you too.

This is a must stop in Athens. They have a great selection and always have Tropicalia in cans. I have been here twice and love searching for stuff I cannot get in Alabama. Lots of good beer to choose from and great service.

Killer selection, probably the best of ANY store I have ever been in. Lots of friendly, knowledgeable help asking if you need anything. Saw tons of foreign beers I have never even heard of. Place looks like a hole in the wall, but don't let the looks deceive you,,,,this place rocks.

I believe both 5 points locations have a great selection of beer, but I felt this locations selection was just a bit better than the one on the west side.

This place is a must go if you are in Athens. Seriously. It's a serve-all package store, with wine, booze, and cigars alongside the craft beer. This place has the perfect feel of a hole in the wall beer store, but much higher quality. The far wall is all cooler doors for craft beer in 6packs, 12packs, 4packs, cans, and bombers. A couple end-cap/corner displays of new bottles or featured deals, as well as two full rows of bottles and bombers. There is a ton of beer to peruse while you are here. Lots of local stuff, and apparently Georgia has a great distribution spray because they have shit from everywhere in here. At the end of the craft beer aisle, there is a beer chiller. It's basically cold circulating water that you drop your beers into to cool them off before you go, just in case you won't have access to a fridge, or are in a rush to cool them down. The staff was super-friendly and very helpful. This place is pretty damn awesome!

Very impressed with this store. I had found it after doing a search on this site and after reading the reviews decided this would be the place to start for some beers I can't find in Ohio. I was not let down. The selection was huge and some nice choices I thought I may only read about and never get to try. The find I was happiest with was the Westbrook Mexican Cake. Very friendly staff, couldn't have asked for more. Hope I can make it back next time I'm travelling to pick up some more gems.
