Stopped in here after visiting 5 seasons. We almost didn't bother because we were going to be in Athens the next day and figured it couldn't compare to 5 points bottle shop. We couldn't have been more wrong!

The selection was incredible. They clearly had everything they could possibly get their hands on. The beer was well cared for and properly organized. They seemed to have things sorted by style, which is a little disorienting to me. I would prefer things to be organized by brewery, but I see what they were going for and I imagine it works for some people.

The service was extreme. These people are very passionate about beer and very enthusiastic. If you want to talk about beer or get suggestions about what you might like, they will indulge you (and themselves) to no end.

This place is well worth a visit, and will from now on be my only bottle shop stop in Atlanta. They don't quite measure up to 5 points bottle shop in Athens (5 points had a few crazy rarities that hop city didn't), but they blow Greens out of the water and well up there with the best beer stores I have been to anywhere.

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.
