Our Story

Hop City Craft Beer & Wine opened its doors 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 among 2010’s “Best of Atlanta” in Creative Loafing, Atlanta Magazine, Atlanta Beer and Wine; and “Atlanta’s Favorite Wine Store” on CitySearch.com.

The dedicated staff provides hands­-on customer service, from making recommendations to actually helping carry purchases to customers’ cars.

The store is organized by style and kept at a comfortable 70° for optimum storage conditions. Any trip to Hop City is quickly made into a fun, unforgettable experience.

Kraig Torres is an experienced beer tasting professional with over 8,000 beer ratings. He is a 20-year Atlanta resident with an entrepreneurial background. As an avid beer enthusiast, he has travelled the world drinking beer in pubs and breweries the world over. His specialty is beer/food pairings. In 2009, Kraig made the leap from amateur imbiber to professional drinker by founding Hop City Craft Beer and Wine. Hop City is craft beer heaven – home to the East Coast’s largest selection of sudsy fun – over 1,900 unique ale and lager opportunities every day. Hop City is not just a beer destination – with over 1,100 wines – most from small producers – Kraig developed a deep love and respect of wine as well.

Kraig was the first person to jump in to the beer Growler scene in Georgia, starting with just 12 taps, and expanding to 60 in 2011. Beer Advocate has awarded Hop City an A+, their highest rating; and RateBeer considers Hop City one of the country’s top 10 retailers. Kraig was a 2012 finalist for Atlanta Chamber of Commerce Entrepreneur of the Year and in 2014 was ranked among the fastest growing businesses in the city.

In 2012, the state of Georgia could no longer contain Kraig’s ambition: Hop City Birmingham opened – and to great acclaim. It quickly became the top beer destination in Alabama. Not only does Hop City carry every beer available in AL but all 66 of our taps in Growlertown are available for by-the-glass enjoyment. This makes Hop City beer-lover’s paradise. Sit and enjoy a beer, shop the amazing selection, then sip on a pint while putting together a new homebrew creation. In September 2014 Kraig opened his 3rd Hop City in the highly anticipated Krog Street Market building in Inman Park.
