One of the hottest spots in Old Fourth Ward/Inman Park on weekend evenings. A lot of groups come here before they go out on the weekends to start their night. Hop City has an extensive beer selection - they have a big list of both local beers (they mark them so you know), as well as beers from around the world. Quick, efficient staff that keeps long lines moving so you never have to wait too long, even when it's packed. If you grab a beer from Hop City, you're able to walk around Krog Street Market with it if you're waiting for a table at a restaurant.
This is one of my favorite additions to the Kirkwood neighborhood district. The owners are super friendly and knowledgeable. You can't beat the rotating selection of small batch wines. Weekly wine tastings to try before you buy make this a great place to try wines you won't see in big box and local liquor stores. I often find myself walking out with a box of wine and love that they can't be purchased anywhere nearby.
Hop City is the top spot in Atlanta for beer geeks. This location has a retail center with hundreds and hundreds of different craft beers - something for every taste. Adjoining the retail store is a bar with 60 beers on tap, including many hard to find selections. Hop City is the ultimate "candy store" for grown-ups.
