Top notch craft beer bottle shop with a very knowledgeable and friendly staff. If you are in the area, this is a must stop to try a sampler flight while shopping and perusing the awesome bottle selection.

How awesome is it to find a retailer where the employee knows pretty much every product? Russ knows them because he has tried just about all of them.

This is what you get from Ale Yeah! It isn't just a great selection, convenient location and great setup for a craft beer store. It's knowing you can walk in and get fantastic recommendations based on what you like and want. It's great conversation about what is happening locally and everywhere in the beer community. Sometimes, without realizing it, the conversation is the best part of a retail experience because it's so educational.

Growlers and bottles both make up the awesome selection. Check out the cooler for some of the more popular picks already chilled. You can even pick up some soda (again, bottles or tap) for a sweet, non alcohol treat.

World class is a great descriptor for this location. How often does a business expand to multiple locations and do it right across both of them? You can't go wrong at any Ale Yeah! location and the Roswell location is no exception.

This is my go to store in the Atlanta area. Unless it is a matter of convenience, I will drive past several other beer stores and Total Wine to go to Ale Yeah Roswell. I go to this store for the service, selection, reasonable prices and the ability to buy singles of most beers.

The store recently moved closer to the middle of Roswell, near the Roswell Mill. It is set up with two main aisles and a growler bar behind the counter. There is also a wall of singles and a few beers in a cooler. The selection is phenomenal when you consider the size of the store. The staff is very knowledgeable and very generous with their time. They typically will let you get singles of nearly anything in the store, which lets me try more great beers without spending too much.

I typically only get bottles, but the growler selection is very enticing. They now serve flights for their tap beers, which provides more atmosphere and an opportunity to try more new beers.

Eddie and the guys do it right!

This is a small but very nice store that has a bigger than expected selection, including bottles from The Lost Abbey. There is a small shelf with a couple of wines for sale, and glassware, but this store is all about craft beer. They do not sale macro beers, a plus for craft brew enthusiasts. They have numerous growler taps. Although I really didn't engage the sales person much, what little I did, he seemed be knowledgeable and ready to help. If you are in the area, this is a worthwhile stop; their prices are about on par with Total Wine.

This was one of my favorite beer stops during my brief times in Atlanta. The wife lived a short drive from here and it was always fun to stop by and look what was new...

Perhaps smaller than Ale Yeah! Decatur but somehow better and more enticing. Tons of bombers, six-packs and singles divided by styles, including a shelf with new arrivals that has the rarer goodies.

They do pretty well in the barrel-aged department, including 20-dollar bottles of Mother Earth Slient Night, Czar and Commando by Sprecher, Widmer Brrrrbon 12 and the most recent additions to the Red Brick line-up.

18 taps with a good number of locals- I've bought growlers of Red Hare and the new BlueTarp out of Decatur. Super fresh pours, and they seal your bottle.

Prices are on par with what you may find around Metro ATL, and service is super friendly and informed. I look forward to visiting again.

Finally!! This place has opened. My office is less than a mile away, so I can go here in between meetings or on the way home. I really like how the the store is organized: by style, but also with a new beer section. It would be a great beer store even without the great growler selection. Have only had growlers filled once, but the prices look very competitive, There a few high priced beers, but hey, some beer are pretty damned expensive these days.
The two guys that work there are extremely knowledgeable and take the time to talk about and recommend beers. I'm writing this as I drink a recommended beer: Port Summer Ale (APA). Wouldn't have tried it unless one of the guys had recommended it.
Really great place. It will now be my primary beer store.

I talked briefly with the owner of Ale Yeah! at a brewpub in Atlanta a couple months ago. He was telling me about his store Ale Yeah! in Decatur. Since I don't live downtown I never got a chance to visit it; however, I noticed that this NEW location opened up right on the way to my girlfriend's house. After passing it numerous times over the span of a week I finally decided to go inside. And I'm glad I did.

The store is relatively small, but the design and layout is very attractive and simplistic. This place is clearly all about beer. The beer is organized by style, which I love. AND they even have a dedicated sour beer section, which I love even more. There is also a small selection of wine.

The overall selection of bottled beer is very solid. There is a lot that you can find at a few other craft beer stores around Atlanta, but I also saw quite a few breweries that I've never seen before anywhere else in Georgia.

The real attraction here is the growlers. There are about 20 or so taps to choose from. I think almost every local brewery was represented. The taps also seem to rotate pretty frequently. The guys working were very knowledgable and very friendly.

I didn't have my growler on me at the time, and I really wanted to try one of the 20 beers on tap, so I had to buy a growler. The 64oz was $4.99. They also had 32oz growlers for about $4.50 I think. It seems like the 32oz should be a bit lower, but it's no big deal. The prices for the beer that goes into the growlers is pretty good. In most cases it seemed like the price for 64oz is similar to the price you'd pay for the same beer in a 6-pack. Not bad considering you get it fresh from the tap. And I know we all love drinking beer from the tap :)

Additional note–they sell beer ice cream here too. I definitely have to check that out before summer ends.

I would absolutely recommend stopping by Ale Yeah! Buy a few bottles of beer. And then buy a growler. And then maybe buy a few more bottles! I think I ended up making three separate trips the first week after I first went in. I will likely only get beer from here from now on.
