Hmm. Well, ATLbeerDog has the setup and backstory pretty well covered already, so let's talk a little about the beer, shall we?

Kicking off with four starter beers - hey, it can't all be mango-and-mint-infused barleywines on day one - they successfully delivered a quality golden, amber, witbier, and stout. As of writing this, they've already released a fifth beer: an English mild. The bar staff gave me their word that cask beer will be offered fairly soon.

While not exactly extensive, the menu is certainly diversified enough to provide you what you're looking for, whether it's a salad, sandwich, entree, appetizer, or, as I usually opt for (and did on this occasion), a beer-accompanying cheese plate.

Then, there's the parking situation. If I find a place has limited or no parking available, requires me to hike a mile through unsavory parts of town, or is surrounded by ill-conceived, over-charging lots, then, well, they'll be unlikely to see me again anytime soon. The Wrecking Bar has only a small number of spaces available, however, they currently have valets. Thank God for valets. I pray they remain in place at the Wrecking Bar.

With good food and good beer housed in a cool venue, oh, and with those trusty, hard-working valets, I'll definitely be back soon. All in all, a pleasant spot that still even has that "new bar" scent.

The place had a nice upscale feel to it which is nice at times but I initially got a condescending vibe from the server. On my second flight though all is well. Very good selection and beers ranged from good to a few great ones. It was a little pricey, but that might go with the territory. Definitely worth a stop for the beer tourist.

My wife and I love it here. We were just talking about it when we went last weekend, that we have never gotten any food here that we did not like. The staff is always friendly. It gets pretty crowded on Friday nights and the weekends, but if you go for an early dinner it's great, you can usually walk right in. The brew selection usually is not very large, typically you'll find about 5-7 different selections on tap, but they rotate weekly. I believe every Friday they tap a new keg of something special, and according to one of the waitresses it's usually gone by the time Friday is over. Last Saturday I was able to sample the keg, which was a barrel aged barley wine. It was fantastic. Although I have just really gotten into the barley wine selections, this was easily the best I've had yet. We would highly recommend anybody visiting Atlanta make this one of their must-see stops.
