Highland Package was recommended to me by my server at a local bar in the five points area. I was looking for a specific German beer and this place did not disappoint. They have a really good selection and I left with so much great stuff I probably damaged the suspension on our mini-van.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. There was a interesting cast of characters that are obviously regulars at this place. I enjoyed listening to them talk with the staff and I learned a lot.

There is a hodge-podge of singles in the middle of the beer section, so you really have to look carefully.

Probably a little pricey but a very cool place!

Great selection, but be careful, their hoppier bottled beers are often old from my experience. The employees know nothing about beer. Anytime you ask them about a specific brew they just say "it's good".

Not as pretentious as Hop City, but not as cool either. Cramped, but excellent selection including draft. A place to check out for sure!

Dropped in with CVM4 before we went to Slice. It's almost in the center of a strip mall/grocery store center. Very crowded with beer and liquor but very organized. Unlike Hop City, you can't buy singles. Lots of taps available for growler fills. And a big refrigerated area that you could get lost in. The guy behind the counter is very knowledgeable and eager to help. I think the only drawback to Highland is the cramped quarters. But if you're not gonna be shopping with a cart, like at Hop City, and you're in and out, Highland has a huge selection for quick pickup. Well worth the visit.
