After living in Americus, GA (pop. 17,000) for several months, where Sam Adams is listed under "import" beers on menus, this place was like going to the candy store when you are a small kid. Keeping that in mind, however, and truly trying to rate it against other brew shops, this is still a good place. The staff is very helpful but pretty clueless about beer ("I just got this dog head, fish something ale in . . . "). They have some good Belgiums, and the whole Sweetwater line in. The prices are reasonable. Some of the beers I bought were several months past their expiration, but I expected as much considering the demand for craft beer in SW GA. Overall, if you are stuck in Albany, or the surrounding area, a great place to stop by.

Warehouse has the best selection in the area for craft beer hands down! Not only is the selection outstanding but the prices are great as well. I stop by every time I'm in the area (I live 45 minutes away) and browse their craft beer section. Great selection of bombers. They also offer the option of buying by the six/twelve pack or you can make your own mix-six with any beer they have in the store. The only complaint is the location. The store is located in a pretty shady part of town. Be sure to lock your doors!

Excellent service! The owner insisted on carrying my beer out even though it was not needed.

Southwest Georgia is a desert for craft beers, but this store is an life-saving oasis. They have a small but decent selection of craft brews from a wide range of breweries - including Dogfish Head, Rogue, Green Flash, Stone, Victory, Bell's, and much more. I've even uncovered some rare, hard-to-find beers at the Warehouse. If you find yourself in the area and have a hankering for something other than Bud or Sweetwater, definitely give this place a visit.

Like other brothers have stated, S Georgia is a vast wasteland when it comes to craft beer.
Warehouse stands out because they ACTUALLY have a selection of crafts, not just what the Bud Distributor has on his truck.
the selection spans the gamut from English to Asian to Sapnish and all points in between. splitting 6 packs is encouraged so you can try beers without buying a whole 4 or 6 pack
The owner and staff where very attentive. happy to offer assistance and suggestions. Also willing to try and order whatever you are looking for.
if your down here, the Warehouse is an oasis

Living in a place where good beer is kind of rare, Warehouse proves to be the best place to find craft beer in Southwest Georgia. Thye have a pretty good selection for a town like this. Albany has zero culture so it is great to see places like this have really good beer. They have you typical Sweetwater, but they also carry Dogfish Head and Heavy Seas. I was surprised at all the selections. It's nothing like teh selection in Atlanta or Athens, but like I said, for Albany it is pretty damn good. It's not too expensive either. If you're ever stuck in this hell hole, definitely check it out. It is definitely my go-to place here in the Good Life City.

I moved to Albany Georgia from Southern California about ten months ago. It was a difficult move because I went from being able to buy Stone and Russian River brews at the supermarket to not being able to find anything when I moved out here. Warehouse was the only place in town that carried any craft brews and they had a decent selection of Sweetwater, Flying Dog, and a hand full of Stone bombers. In recent months they underwent renovation and have doubled their footprint and quadrupled their beer selection. At any given point I can walk in and buy a six pack of Stone Ruination or Victory Hop Devil or a number of goodies from the likes of Lost Abbey, Port Brewing, Great Divide, Bells, Dogfish Head, and Heavy Seas. There is no other place in Southwest Georgia that I know of that can compare to the selection Warehouse has.

To start this off Albany is a beer wasteland. However the Warehouse offers a glimmer of hope for BAs that find themselves trapped in Albany. As a person that travels quite a bit and has an awesome liquor store in my home city this place didn't blow me away. However the craft and imports are way better here than the liquor store by my hotel and grocery stores. They have a good mix of beers that aren't available like Terrapin, Sweetwater, Highland, Duck Rabbit, and Bells. So those breweries really make the place a worthwhile stop for me.

I travel all over the US and was in Albany for a few days on business. I was beginning to despair of ever finding a good beer store there when I happened upon The Warehouse. The store is very large, well lit and clean. The majority of the ware is hard liquors and wine but they do have a very nice selection of beer towards the back and right of the store. Georgia must be the place for Belgians and they had plenty. A few micros were available as well as a decent selection of imports. They have a nice selection of singles to choose from and sixers in the coolers and on the shelves. Hey, this is a small town so it had a lot more than I was expecting.

The staff and management are very friendly. The clerk that I dealt with was not overly knowledgeable about beer but was so enthusiastic that you forgave him for not being a beer drinker. I did speak with the manager and he said that any beer that I wanted, he would order in for me. Unfortunately, I don't live there but it's nice to know that if I did, I'd have a good selection to choose from. They seem very willing to make their customers happy. Prices were reasonable and comparable to other stores I'd seen in the South. I'd definitely go there again next time I'm in the area.
