This place is mostly liquor/wine. If you make your way to the back though, you can find some pretty decent craft selections. They always have local brews- Sweetwater and Terrapin- and they're usually in the fridge. They have a wall of coolers, and half is dedicated to craft. They also have a shelf of 750mls. While you shouldn't expect to find really sought-after/hyped beers, they do have a surprisingly good selection. I've found Jolly Pumpkin, Stone, Great Divide, New Belgium's Lips of Faith series (including La Folie), Founders, Avery, Lagunitas, Rogue, Samuel Smith, 21st Amendment, and Cigar City to name a few.

Even though the staff aren't experts, they are very friendly and will always check the back for something you might be looking for. Prices are fairly reasonable. It's no Green's or AleYeah, but if I'm looking for staples and don't wanna drive all the way to Greens or Aleyeah's closed (and/or is too expensive), I'll usually just go here.

Quite the unexpected beer selection, in the back of this liquor store next to a Citgo on E. College Ave in Decatur. Good amount of liquor, nice bourbons and a nice wine selection. The far-left cooler is mostly 650/750mLs and Belgians. On a recent visit, I spotted: DeProef/Tomme Arthur Signature Ale, Stone Old Guardian, Duvel, Allagash, Rochefort 10, St. Bernardus, Stone Cali-Belgique, Local 1.

The 3-4 doors to the right are filled with US craft brew, to the likes of: Stone, Weyerbacher, DFH, Victory, Smuttynose, Sweetwater, Terrapin, Oskar Blues, Full Sail & Avery.
None of the beer was warm, which is a good thing, and seems to be regularly rotated.

And don't expect any beer pairing suggestions from the staff. English is the second language and I got a weird look when I asked if they still had Terra-ryzed in stock. He went in the back and brought out a Rochefort 10.

The store is just outside of City of Decatur limits and right next to Avondale Estates. Good little go-to-spot if Cook's Warehouse or Decatur Wine & Spirits is closed.
