If you are thinking of using them for distribution, look up what they did to Clown Shoes Beer and see if you still want to do business with them. Holding someone's brand hostage after dropping beer distribution and then refusing to transfer the rights to another distributor unless you get paid big bucks is sleezy, dishonest, and indefensible. The people of Georgia deserve better. -Update: based on the backlash they did finally resolve things with Clown Shoes and let another distributor have the rights in GA. Still not acceptable how they let it get to this point, but raised from 1 to 2 stars for resolving the issue.

From Business: Since 2008, Parti Gras Wine and Spirit has provided West and South Cobb County with a establishment for the sippers to find their "social lubricants and elixirs" …
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.
my entire staff bought me a gift certificate to this place. when i tried to use the certificate for a 6 pack; they denied it. they stated that i had to use the whole amount in a single visit. this is NOT a good way to do business people ! this alienates me as a new customer. this alienates my staff members as customers as well as our friends and business contacts. In this day and age of social media, make your business more sensible and allow the use of gift certificates as any other business would...as cash.
Green's on Ponce is a great liquor store. Not only do they have a wonderful beer selection (though their wine choices are a bit lacking) they also have most liquors you could want, mixers, cigarettes, and other last-minute drinking needs. The best part about Greens is the crowd. This place is truly democratic--everybody likes to drink! So you see businessmen and soccer moms in line with college kids and welfare moms. Plus they play the tv so you have something to do while waiting in line. A great store!
Tower has a decent liquor selection and I don't know much about the wine selection but the beer selection blows me away. They have just about everything you could ask for here. Mainstream brews, Microbrews and one-off craft brews from around the US and around the world. If you can't find it here, you might not be able to find it anywhere and they'll even order your beer if they don't have it. The great beer section is what keeps me coming back to Tower.
A small mom and pop store that endeavors to be the best that they can be. You will not find a more friendly place to buy alcohol...period. This is a relatively small neighborhood liquor store. But it has great selection for its size. More important it has a very friendly and knowledgeable staff. This is a store that I want to visit because of the people that work here. And it helps that it is about a mile from my house.
Absolutely LOVE this place and expect it to be a hot spot in the near future! They've got a great bar that serves beer brewed only in Georgia, as well as an awesome outdoor area with tables, a patio and cornhole for visitors to enjoy. When we were in there the other day, the owners told us they're working on a sports bar upstairs, too, which will be a great place to watch games! Really cool vibe - similar to Ladybird.
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.
The Draft Filling Station is a terrific growler store serving outstanding craft beer from their 40 taps. They also have a good variety of bottled beer and wine. They provide tastings of their draft beer and offer both 32 and 64 ounce growlers which means you will get just the right beer in just the right amount. Check out their website at www.draftfillingstation.com to see what they have on tap today.
After a renovation completed in the last year or so, Tower now has one of the best beer selections in Atlanta. If I'm looking for something unique or hard to find this is the first place I try and I usually find it. Their liquor selection is top notch and I'm no vinophile but they're wine selection seems to be just as plentiful.
