The address and picture are no longer correct here. This store is now located across from the Wal-Mart on Hwy 153 at:

5721 Highway 153 Ste 139
Hixson, TN 37343
(423) 875-2999

It's a liquor store that carries a bare minimum of high grav brews. Nothing out of the ordinary and the prices are decent on Stone AB, and the like. The store is small, but clean and the staff (while not beer experts by any means) are helpful and polite.

If you're in the area it's not bad, but the Vine and Barrel is 5 minutes away and worth looking into IMO.

I don't know what this place was like at last review, but it's apparently gone downhill significantly. According to the lady at the store, the owner cut his beer supply down big time after Georgia changed their beer laws. The beer is now literally confined to a single table where you'll find some Stone and about 5 other brands.

Despite the poor selection at the store, they said they would be more than happy to special order anything they could get. They even had a brochure with some popular requests and she said she could check on anything that wasn't listed. This wasn't an option for me since I was on vacation, but I appreciated it.

She also helped me find some other stores in the area that would have something available and even called them for me. If you live in or near Chattanooga, this might be a good place to get to know, but it's not very helpful if you're just visiting.

This place sits in the strip mall directly across from NorthGate Mall. The first place I ventured to for craft brew in Chattanooga. This is a liqour store so everything here is going to be over 6.0% ABV or higher.

Decent selection, one or two things from Dogfish Head, offerings from Mendocino, and all the standard stone entries (smoked porter, ruination, ipa, arrogant bastard). The bulk of the selection here is made up of belgians. Fine by me.

I've heard the owner will make special orders and hold items for customers, but I've been unable to get this arranged at this point. We'll see how it goes.

::just to add this is the only liqour store that I know of in Chattanooga that made the effort to get some of Stone's Imp Stout::
