Proudly independent

Hop City Craft Beer & Wine opened its doors on April 23, 2009, to a great response from the Atlanta community. With one of the largest beer selections in the country (and a very healthy wine section as well), Hop City is fueled by a passion for great taste.

We have been named as one of the "Best Beer Shops in the South" by Wine Enthusiast, among the “Best of Atlanta” in Creative LoafingAtlanta Magazine, and Yelp. We've been dubbed “Atlanta’s Favorite Wine Store” on Our Birmingham store has received similar accolades, and was recently named the "#2 Best Beer Bar in America" in the 2022 USA TODAY 10Best Readers' Choice travel award contest.

Not only are we a must-stop location for craft beer fans traveling to Atlanta and Birmingham, but Beer Advocate also gives Hop City an A+ rating. RateBeer considers Hop City one of the country’s top retailers.

Our dedicated staff provides hands­-on customer service, from making recommendations to actually helping carry purchases to customers’ cars. Hop City’s stores are organized by style and kept at a comfortable 70° for optimum storage conditions. Every trip is a fun, unforgettable experience.

If you’re hungry, we invite you to dine at one of our sister restaurants – Boxcar At Hop City (West End) and Barleygarden Kitchen & Craft Bar (Alpharetta and Fayetteville). Each one boasts dozens upon dozens of taps, curated by us, along with some great food that pairs perfectly with a glass of craft beer.
