We went here under the impression that it was a Sweetwater brewpub or taproom (due the the enormous Sweetwater sign, which features a logo identical to the brewery). Obviously, I'm not from this area. Needless to say, we were a little confused by the Miller cups and Budweiser signs, which greeted us upon entering the building. Only when I finally realized that it's just a bar that sells a few Sweetwater brews, could I properly assess the quality of this establishment.

Confusion aside, this was a decent bar. They have only a few microbrews on draught (two Sweetwaters and a Terrapin) and probably around 15 European favorites (Carlsberg, Pilsener Urquell, Newcastle, etc.) and one crap tap (Miller Lite). Wider selection in bottles. Overall, I can't say I was blown away by the variety, but for the south, it's a good bar. Although, I have to say, I would recommend the Porter Beer Bar (which is across the street) over this one, especially if you only have time to visit one bar in the area.

I remember seeing a sign somewhere that said something like, "Atlanta's soccer bar" and there was a soccer game on TV, which is a refreshing take on a sports bar for the US, in my opinion. The atmosphere was a little cooler than most sports bars. This bar is in a really hip neighborhood. There are a ton of fun things to do around here and all kinds of people walking around.

The food was good, but a little expensive. We sat in the patio area and the tables were pretty dirty, but the service was great.

Went here after failing to convince my friends to head to Decatur or the Midtown Taco Mac.

Atmosphere was actually pretty solid. There's a good amount of outdoor seating, a good amount of covered semi-outdoor seating, and a good amount of indoor seating. A lot of TV's around, but there's not an all out sports bar feel. A pretty cool place.

Quality is slightly above average. They do have logoed pint glasses, but more often than not the logos don't reflect the beer that's in them. I rate them slightly above average for the few times the pint glasses and the beers do match. I wouldn't even try to park in the lots next to the place however, just go down the road on the north side and park on the street.

Service is alright. None of us really had to wait all that long to order another drink and she was not obstinate about splitting the checks.

Selection is just above average. There is a good amount of beers that aren't the average macro, both on-tap and in bottles. There are a few German beers on-tap that aren't at most places, along with Terrapin and a few Sweetwater offerings. They also have a good amount of common Belgian offerings such as Duvel, St. Bernardus 12, and Ommegang.

Overall this is an above average sports bar, without the hackneyed normal sports bar atmosphere. A good place to go to watch a game and drink a few not so common beers.

The Brewhouse is located in L5P. As a result, parking can be difficult as the lot is often full and the side streets are parked up as well (at least on weekends). As the previous reviewer noted, it does have a sport slant to it. The patio is nice, especially when the weather is pretty. The beer selection is alright, and you can get a liter of what they have on tap as opposed to the traditional pint if you so desire.

My main problem with the place is the food. I always enjoy places with a British slant to their food, but last time I went I decided to get some American fare (chicken tenders FTW) and it was so fried I could barely eat it. That's saying a lot. My gf did get the bangers and mash and enjoyed that more than I enjoyed my food. I'd probably give it another shot, but these days it's hard to get me anywhere besides the Brickstore/Twains/Thinking Mans triumvirate.
