OUR PICKS
1. Tower
The AJC dining team’s Popular Eats specialist Jon Watson says, “For the best overall selection of beer, wine, and liquor, it is tough to beat Tower’s sprawling inventory. For a store their size, I’m always impressed by the depth of their stock, including hard-to-find liquors and craft beers.”

Jackie’s in east Cobb. Doesn’t have a HUGE wine collection, but a discerning one. Great cabs.

Do you really think that we are to believe that every holiday package reference with link to website is not the owner or employees. Cmon dude. Greens on Ponce best beer selection. Should I add a link a fake name and talk about a tequila selection as well.

A lot of families and lives have been destroyed because of alcohol. No lecture here from me, but it is true. Please remember that, consider others and use it responsibly.

Looks like the folks at Holiday understand statistical aberrations as well as the administrators in the Atlanta Public School system….

It all depends on where you live, but I live in Woodstock and the best place for price, service and esp. the look and feel of a store, you can’t beat Lucky’s Beverage World on hwy 92. Best craft beer selection I have seen – Check out their website http://www.luckysbw.com

Why would anyone go to Holiday? No one wants to drive to Buford for a bottle of wine… plus we know no one worth a damn lives in Buford

Slick – you are correct. I live in the Woodlands in Woodstock and that is our (entire subdivion) store of choice. I am also an architect and I can tell you that is by far the best looking liquor store building I have seen. Huge wine selection and awesome prices.

Towers and Greens locations…and Suwanee package….once the last place to go before the lake and the vast wasteland up I-85….it has grown and has great selections….

Holiday has the lowest prices for all liquors and craft beers. The wine selection in always changing with the trends of the market and the staff is knowledgeable as well about it all. The place is uber dank.

Depends on what I am looking for.

If I want personal service and wine:
- H&F (who should be able to see liquor soon, or may be by now)
- Perrines

If I want personal service and wine or liquor at lower prices
- Tower (Buford Highway location; NOT Piedmont!!)

Runners up:
- Total Wine (any location but Perimeter and NorthPoint were ones I frequented)
- Hintons Wine Store – service is either amazing or your are ignored and sneered at, nothing in between. Wine and Liquor here.
- Decatur Package – only been in twice but Herb seems like a good guy
- Greene’s

DECATUR PACKAGE STORE!!!
Great store, vast selections & knowledgeable, friendly staff…whether it’s liquor, beer or wine. I wouldn’t shop anywhere else in Atlanta/Decatur area. Do you know anyone else in Atlanta/Decatur that knows more about wine than HERB?

Parti Gras in Austell is easily the best spirit store for women. They greet you at the door and are always helpful with wine pairings.

Liquor Store on Peachtree at Collier Rd gets my vote just because I can walk there. Does anyone know why they can’t sell liquor at the same cash register as beer/wine? Also gets my vote for the oldest employees wearing the loudest mis-matched ties!What a throw-back….Hello 1972!

Parti Gras in Austell – Hal & his wife are the best and every time you stop by, it’s like hanging with family!! They are a small, local shop with some great wines and have never pointed in a bad direction with my wine.

Best liquor store is Beverage World. Its the big red store off peachtree industrial. You can see it from the road. Best prices (beer super cheap) and they have a huge wine selection. Worth a trip.

For price they can not be beat. Not all locations have liquor stores. They even have a house brand Kirkland Signature that is high quality.

Highwayman, The best liquor store was in Macon behind the Dempst Hotel.
CUZ Liquor Store -no 21 was required in the 50’s you only had to be able to reach
the counter and put the money on it. That the why we called him “CUZ THE FRIEND OF
YOUTH”

Tower’s on Piedmont and there is also another one I have visited in Gwinnet County. The people there a super nice and ver accommodating. Since expanding, they really do a booming business because of their pricing and the selection. GO TOWER’S this girl loves you. Very convenient, clean and very well stocked.

I am sad that Heppy Herman’s on Cheshire Bridge closed. The personnel there, the speciality products they offered and the review and assistance in the wine department were unbelievable. If you wanted something wonderful and unique…you went to Happy Herman’s. I REALLY miss it.
