    Re: Hello from Atlanta, Georgia.

    Welcome aboard! I am in your general area and second the Dekalb Bottle House on Briarcliff just north of Clairmont. Really nice staff and small but growing selection. Thaey just did a fabulous whiskey tasting and hope to do more in the future. Toco Giant in Toco Hills Shopping Center is one of the biggest in the area and has a decent selection with a recent FR barrel pick and occasional hard to find bottles (Also just expanded there already large beer selections). Used to go there a lot but my contact is no longer there and I only stop by periodically now to see what is happening. Tower on Piedmont near I-85 has a good selection of most everything but a long waiting list for limited bottles. And downtown there is a Green's on Ponce near the old Sears building although the bourbon section seems a bit underwhelming. Good beer choices though.

    I have never been to the Smoke Rise shop. I guess I need to at least check it out.

    Just stay back from the fire, and close your eyes really tight when you and the goat . . . well . . . aw shucks, we don't want to ruin the surprise!

    Haha - looking forward to it! Thanks again for the recs. I was in the neighborhood of the H&F bottle shop today and dropped in. Pretty small selection of good stuff, but seemed a bit on the pricier side. Smoke Rise has some of the best prices I've seen and a pretty decent selection.
