I went to check this place out after AtLagerHead's suggestion. After all, I only live 20 minutes away. I just kind of assumed that there'd be nothing interesting in the way of beer in Dalton since the similarly-sized city where I work (Rome) features stores with less than appealing selections. The place is fairly small and looks a little run down from the outside, but the beer selection is the best you're going to find in the area until you get into metro Atlanta (Cobb County about 50 miles south on I-75) or 30 miles north to Chattanooga. There's obviously a different distributor working this part of the state because I actually found a few things here that I haven't seen in even the really good stores in Atlanta. They do carry the Sweetwater beers and a few of the Atlanta Brewing Co. beers, but no Dogwood to be found. I'll have to see if I can get them to start stocking it. They did say that their stock was dwindling a bit and is usually a bit larger than what they had. The people working the counter (I'm guessing owners) were extremely friendly and the man had actually tasted enough of the beers in his stock to say that the Jubel I had bought was a good beer. Since this place is a good bit closer than my favorite stores down in Atlanta, I'll be stopping here fairly often I think.

In town on business and heard this was the best place to find craft beer. The selection was great I think the guy said they had about 400 domestic and 300 imports. The service was great as well.

Exceptionally well-stocked liquor store that has plenty of great foreign beers. Visited this store on a trip back and forth to Florida and added about 2 dozen brews to my stash. Huge store with helpful staff and quick checkout. They'll provide packaging for singles if you need it. Lots of imported brews on the shelves and in the coolers.
