I am giving Hop City fives across the board. We drove up on September 2 from Alabama looking for stuff I can't find locally. Upon entering we were greeted warmly by the staff and after allowing us to get comfortable in the store, offered assistance. We were helped by a very friendly outgoing gentleman who was quite knowledgeable. After asking a few questions as to my preferences, he made suggestions for some brands that I might enjoy. Since I am really more of a sample it and move on kind of guy, I was mainly interested in buying singles. He made a bunch of recommendations from the singles section, then busted up a few six packs so I could get a few that were not presently on the singles shelf. He spent about thirty minutes with us and was absolutely a delight to talk with. I wish I had gotten his name because I would certainly give him some props here.

The selection is pretty massive and a bit overwhelming. So many beers and only one liver <ha ha>. The prices were better than I expected and if I could give customer service a higher score than five I would. Highly recommended.

Best of all this is a nice upscale store run by a young knowledgeable staff who is enthusiastic and helpful. Some beverages stores just seem to be staffed by weasel-faced humorless old men who are not pleasant in the least. Not Hop City. <subliminal message> GO THERE. BUY LOTS OF BEER FROM THEM </subliminal message>

Great place for homebrew stuff and bottle selection. They do decent brewing classes and have a nice/helpful staff. Parking can be a pain to deal with.

I found this place on this website as I was commit to Atlanta for a business conference and I loved it. Very large craft beer as well as a wine selection. I told one of the guys working there that I was a BA and he took me around the store helping me pick out some really good local beers. I had to take Uber to get there from my downtown hotel but it was well worth the trip

Absolutely great place! I stopped here on the way to Florida, and I'm really glad I did. The selection is GREAT. I've only been to one other place that rivaled the inventory of this one!

I was a bit skeptical about this place. I've been to too many disappointing "world-class" shops, but this place is legitimately world class.

It's a wine and bier store, and both are given a great focus. Everything is arranged by styles.

Knowing nothing of the SE brewing scene, I asked for some suggestions. I ended up having a really awesome conversation about brewing and bier while I was given a tour of all the offerings from local breweries. Fantastic knowledge, and a great attitude; openly admitting when they were expressing a personal preference, and really trying to zero in on the types of things I would be interested in (as opposed to simply what is popular). An absolutely excellent guy.

The selection, meanwhile, was very, very impressive. I could be kept busy here for months!

AND, they let you make a split 6-pack out of anything you want!
I got a 6'er of all my suggestions, and they have been all on target.

If you're in the Atlanta area, this is a must if you can bring bottles back, or you have time to sit down and drink a few.

I've been to MANY bottle shops in my days, but Hop City might be the best of them all. This place is absolutely HUGE!!! Everything is divided by beer style so it makes it easy to find what you're looking for. All of the employees are extremely friendly and helpful. Aside from the huge selection of bottles, they have a growler fill station, and a large home brewing section. I will definitely be stopping by here again when I'm in the area.

The staff here are awesome, can talk to them with just about anything. don't forget to check their adopt-a-beer section too, good for those who don't want a beer pack of just one kind.
