Ive been to the green's on buford hwy. and both tower package owned by the same family. But for beer this is the grandaddy of them all. They even have a climate controled room for there high end belgian's. They are also the big bully on the block.They buy more beer than any other retail store. The downside to this is some hard to find beer will only exist at this ponce store and no other retailers get a chance to purchase these beers. If the distrubutors would set allocations maybe some people in other part's would get a chance! but if you don't mind going to the most scary part of Atlanta to shop, your find everything that is available in the Atlanta market.There service is nowhere to be found.and parking is a pain in the ass.

Huge store that looks kind of ghetto from the outside but I was very impressed with their HUGE selection of craft beers and their huge bomber selection. Staff was not very friendly. Not at all actually. But I would return if nothing but for their selection only.

This is a place I avoided (not great neighborhood or people) until I realized they had a large walkin cooler in the back with tons of single beer selections. The sour selection is the best I have found in Atlanta. But not just sours, basically a very large and diverse selection of quality beers. They have an ipad set up in the cooler with BA open to look up new or unfamiliar beers. Prices are quite good also. I actually drive all the way downtown (45 minutes) just to get beer here.

I live OTP Atlanta and don't get into town all that often, but when I do, I always try to hit Green's. It doesn't hurt that it's right across the street from one of my favorite fast food joints (Chipotle). The selection is outstanding with a lot of cooler space. There's a large walk-in cooler in the back with a lot of good stouts, Belgian, and sours. I've never had much interaction with the staff, so I'm not sure how knowledgeable they are. They don't do singles or mix-a-six. I don't get there often enough to catch any special releases. The only negative is they charge a higher price for using a credit card, which I thought was illegal, but somehow they get away with it.

Atmosphere is a bit ghetto as it sits next to a Kroger once penned "Murder Kroger" because of transients. Service was semi knowledgeable but pleasant. The selection and price are great and that makes it more than worth the trip. It's also a reasonable convenient location, which helps. No food.
