My wife and I had a great meal here on a recent trip to Atlanta. The bar is interesting, much larger than it looks. The bar is long and the dining room is in back. It just keeps going back further and further. It's a little tight in the far back of the place, but it's not horrible. They have a lot of travel related decor to go along with the name of the place. GA just got Bell's in and they had a large selection of Bell's on tap. I got a Third Coast, which was excellent. They serve water in these huge mason jars, which is nice because you get a lot of it.

Our waiter was very prompt with our food and drinks and even when we had to rush out to pick someone up at the airport. He was very helpful and friendly.

I had the brats and kraut for dinner. One of the brats was a bit dry, but the other was perfect. They were both very tasty and the kraut was excellent. My wife got the shrimp and grits, which she absolutely loved (and was thrilled to find out that there was a recipe for it in the Southern Beer News paper).

The prices were very reasonable. This is a must visit place if you find yourself in Atlanta.

This is a beer nerd's dream. If you only have time to stop in one place in Atlanta due to a layover I suggest you coming here and spending your afternoon waiting on your flight here if you have the time. This place is on point with their bottle and cask selections.

Seriously if you live in Atlanta and haven't been here, you're missing out. Probably the best place I've ever been to for beer. Huge tap list, huge bottle list, and a giant cellar of things that aren't even listed on the menu. You can go back and walk around and admire the bottles (stuff you wouldn't imagine they'd have), point a few out, get prices from the staff, and decide to blow your load on them all. Prices were in line with what you'd expect at a bar/restaurant, with some outrageously priced and others just somewhat high. But that's to be expected. I got a 2009 Old Stock Cellar Reserve to start, and finished with a 2011 French Oak Jose Marti. I could have spent north of $1,000 at this place. I'm not going to list everything in the cellar because I'm not even sure if they're supposed to have some of that out of distro stuff. Food was also incredibly good, staff was nicer than any beer bar I've ever been to, with lots of patience for me and my questions about both beers they had and their pricing. I can't recommend this place enough. Seriously though, even if you don't want vintage or crazy cellar bottles, just go and look at the place. Just awesome.

It might not look as pretty as Brickstore, but the food is ten times better. Nick whips up great seasonal specials - constant rotation.

The cellar is solid for occasionally splurging, though we all hope they continue to improve it and not rest on their laurels.

The tap list is usually interesting, but you can ALWAYS rely on fantastic kegs coming out for themed nights, anniversaries, and craft beer weeks.

The veterans on the staff are particularly good at what they do.

Hundreds of beers. Awesome niche brewhouse with 30something atmosphere. Oh yeah, the food was outstanding.

This is my favorite beer bar in the country. There is always something great on, if you don't like the taplist the vintage list is out of this world.
