THE place to go for local craft beers. 60 taps - menu available via Untappd or check their website at hopcitybeer.com. Tasters up to 16 ounce servings. Growlers, both 32 and 64. Awesome staff that will take whatever time you need to find that perfect brew (or case :). They host lots of events - tap outs, tastings, wickedly good local food vendors and a homebrew class every few weeks. Beers are sorted by style and they allow you to do singles! Also, if your better half isn't a hop head, they have a super wine selection. If you are a homebrewer, they have whatever you need from extracts to all grain and all the gear.

I am a big fan of sour beer and this is the place to go to find them (in Alabama). Great staff, great selection, good times! The only downside is where the place is located. Kind of a pain to get to if you live over the mountain.

They have a lot of beer. A lot of stuff on tap. However, CHECK DATES. I'm not from around here, so I just stopped by this shop because it was close to the interstate. They had some stuff I would have been interested in, but it was all old. Jai Alai that's 6 months old. Finchs that's all past the drink by date by 3-4 months. Bottles with layers of dust. Looking at what else is available around here, it seems to be the best in 100 miles, hands down. But, old beer is old beer.

I came here while passing through Birmingham since I like the Hop City in Atlanta so much. They were very helpful and helped me find some beers that I wouldn't have been able to find back in Atlanta.

Absolutely great experience. They do a great job at helping their customer's find a great brew for their taste. One of my favorite growler filling shops.
