This is without a doubt my favorite bar. It's a decently long trip for me, and I make so little money that it's once in a blue moon (beer pun not intended) that I get to visit. But every trip is worth it.

The selection is immaculate, nothing but the most craftily made brews from all over the world. The beer menu is about ten pages long, with accurate descriptions for every brew.

The atmosphere is my favorite type of bar environment: dark and intimate. Even though the place can be packed, you can feel secluded with your party in a booth if you like, or you can mingle at the bar at meet some people.

The food is pretty good, as well. If you're on a budget, get the fries and they will be the best fries you will ever eat. If you want something else, they have it. From goat-cheese fritters to the best fish-n-chips I've ever had, they have something to fit your cravings, and your beer.

The prices are a little high for me, but you get what you pay for. Again, I'm fairly poor, so take my review of the prices with a grain of salt.

Great place! Phenomenal selection. Huge vintage/cellar menu. Prices are awesome. Food is fantastic. Tight seating, but that adds to the vibe honestly. Hard to go wrong with The Porter.

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.
