Went into this place trying to find some decent brew in the Brunswick area since I couldn't drink Bud Light anymore. I was craving some Dogfish Head 90 Minute and was on a mission.

JP's is an older building made out of seashell and concrete construction. Looks a little bit sketchy/ghetto on the outside. Walked in and it got a lot better. Very clean and organized. Decent wine and liquor selection. Beer was located in the cooler along the back wall. A decent selection for the area. Some Allagash, Dogfish Head, Oskar Blues, Sierra Nevada, and Victory. Didn't really ask for any service and didn't receive any voluntarily, so service was pretty average. Decent prices. Since I frequent Brunswick/St. Simon's pretty often, I'll definitely be frequenting this place more often.

The best beer store in the area, if not the only one. Head to the back, most of the good stuff is in the coolers or the shelf right next to them. Selection is mostly the "big" micros, SN, Rouge, Sam Adams, etc. A lot of the macros, Harp, Guinness, etc. Good selection of GA brews like Sweetwater.

The service is always friendly and helpful, if not experts on beers. The place to goif you are in the Brunswick or SSI area. They have another store down in St. Marys that sometimes has a slightly different selection.

From a cursory glance around the area, this seems the best beerstore of the lot.
A decent-sized store, with the back wall devoted to beer, with a heavy lean towards macros, but there are some decent micro offerings to be had. It was the only place I saw Sweetwater in the immediate area, and they had shelf space for the entire line, but the supply was fairly ravaged, with only a straggled 6er of the IPA, and 2 of the 420 Extra Pale. The Blue, Porter, and, Wit (maybe?) were sold out. I grabbed what they had. Aside for that, they had the bigger staples of Anchor, Rogue, and SN. A few Belgians dotted the shelves, with Corsendonk, Gulden Draak (1.5L), and Piraat. The usual suspect imports, and some very old looking Sam Smiths round things out. The "selection" score reflects the fact that it carries much more than any of its local peers.
The staff was polite and apologetic about being all but sold out of Sweetwater. Prices were reasonable.
It's worth a stop if your in the area or vacationing in the Golden Isles next door.

This is really the only choice in the county for anything approaching a decent selection, so if you are in the area head here first.
It is situated right off Highway 17 in a building by itself. They tend to specialize in wine and liquor but have an entire wall of cold cases in the back of which about 40% are not macros. They carry one Georgia brewery's beer(Sweetwater), the standard larger micros(ie Sierra Nevada, Sam Adams, Anchor, Shiner, some Rogue) and some decent imports such as Samuel Smith and Franziskaner. There are a lot of more standard imports as well(ie. Becks, Dos Equis, Harp, Bass Guinness). They have been guilty from time to time of putting some out of date beers on the shelves for sale, so check them carefully. Not a bad store and since I have to work with what I have, I go there fairly often.
