Just southwest of the UGA campus in an area called Five Points. It's in a small suite across the street from Jittery Joe's, and next to a Waffle House. From the outside it doesn't look like much but once you step inside you realize it's a fantastic place for beer. There are a few parking spots out front, but it's very limited.

Plenty of tables, a long bar, and a few leather chairs near a fireplace. It was off when I was there though. The light was dim but very soothing.

About 10 beers on tap when I was there, with a good variety. There were also a couple fridges toward the back which has a large selection of bottles. There is also coffee, liquor, and obviously a large selection of wine (the place is actually a wine bar).

I had a good but brief conversation about the lady working the bar (never caught her name) about Brooklyn Brewery. I had the Brooklyn EIPA. I felt the beer was at a low price, although I may be used to the price of a pint here in D.C.

Never tried any of the food. My parents and sister had the coffee which, according to them, was very sweet.

The place was nearly empty when we went in there. But even if it's slightly busy, this place seems like the perfect place to relax and have a pint or two. A must see when in Athens.

I agree with beerist on this one for sure. Thought the beer selection is small it is top notch. Last time I was there they had Dogfish Head Black and Blue. The prices aren't out of line for the quality. Plus they were serving it in the large DFH snifters.

I tend to go with the cheese plate when I'm there. There is a very nice selection ranging from mild to "old sock" but i can always get a selection that pairs well with the beer.

My only complaint is that it can be a little loud if there is a large group there at the same time. The decor doesn't really have anything to absorb sound. Maybe when the weather cools off a little sitting outside will be possible.

Aromas is rapidly becoming my favorite place to drink in Athens.

Atmosphere is nice - sometimes I feel slightly underdressed in a t-shirt and jeans, but I never let it bother me. ;) There's a section of couches and chairs with a fake fireplace as well as standard seating and a bar. It's a very nice and laid back atmosphere.

Service is pretty relaxed, but nice. I think they try not to be pushy. My glass usually stays full, but sometimes it does take a little while to get the check, etc.

Selection is even better now that they've upgraded from 1 to 5 taps. Right now they have Terrapin IBA, Urthel HopIt, North Coast Old Stock and Scrimshaw, and Rogue I2PA. Taps always rotate and several gems have found their way here including casks from Jolly Pumpkin and Clipper City and kegs of Oskar Blues Ten Fidy with Cherries and other goodies. There is a good selection of bottles, if the current tap doesn’t excite you (note: their website poorly represents the actual selection). They do tap a firkin occasionally. Call to check when they'll have their next one.

Food is light tapas only - don’t come expecting to be filled up. Pricing is fair - sometimes a little pricey depending on the beer.

Overall a great stop while in Athens - especially if you’re bringing a wine drinker along. Currently, this is the place where you'll find the best beer in Athens.
