If you're looking for a particular beer in the Birmingham area this place more than likely has it. They have 72 beers on tap and a wide selection of 6 packs and singles/bombers of other beer.

They seem to know where just about everything they have is in the store which makes the service great and the guy behind the counter is always friendly.

I'd be a bit weary of some of the things I buy and really check the labels for bottled on dates, etc. I picked up a beer on 7/31/13 that was bottled on 3/2012 so pay attention.

I haven't had any problems with the taste of anything I've bought yet though so it hasn't been an issue for me, yet.

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.
