What a fun place! Had a few hours to kill while waiting for a flight out of Atlanta ... thanks to BeerAdvocate for guiding me here!!

I certainly expected to find an interesting beer selection, but a very pleasant surprise was their interesting food selection. Highly recommend the Schweinshaxe ... comes with kale and pablano grits. The rest of the menu is equally intriguing.

The staff was oh so friendly. They sat me down in my own private living room area to get a little work done. Beautiful setting.

I love passion for craft beer. It's infecting America!

This place really impressed me and really set the tone for my visit to Atlanta in August of '13.

After taking the train out from the downtown area, heading way in the wrong direction as I walked through the greasy, muggy Atlanta air, I was in need of some craft beer goodness.

I made my way through a great number of beers, elegantly served in mini-snifters, something I've quite taken a liking too. As I drank my healthy sampler offering, I perused the menu and struggled to decide on something with so many options tempting me to no end. I finally settled on the beer and cheese soup and the Reuben sandwich.

The beer and cheese soup was to die for, the type of thing I could eat by those massive pot sizes that you see at Whole Foods and other markets. I must learn to make this.

As for the reuben, same thing. A massive, delicious sandwich bursting with flavor. The meat was tender, thick-cut, and peppery; just like I like it. If you live in Atlanta and haven't tried these foods, you should probably shout a toe off and continue doing so each day until you do try them.

By the way, the food here is all locally or regionally sourced and the owners went to great pains to share all the details on the menu. That's the type of stuff that makes me fall in love with a restaurant.

Now to the beer:

Kolquittsch: A simple Kolsch done well. This was easy drinking and ideal for the summer. It's not my favorite style, so I didn't love it, but I did sure enjoy it.

Victor IPA: This was so-so. If I remember correctly, not enough balance and far too much bitterness from the hops.

Denamelizer Double IPA: A 10.3% beast of a DIPA, this was everything the victor wasn't. Very well-balanced, bursting with hoppy, piney aroma and flavor. I'd drink this regularly, no doubt.

Ryezealand IPA: An excellent offering as well. The rye hits you on the nose, but the hops offer some subtle fruitiness that becomes more pronounced as you drink it.

Colin's Wee Heavy Scotch Ale: A beer I wish more breweries offered and a great representation here. A smooth, creamy malt treat. I went in for seconds on this beer.

Hoppy Hobbit Session IPA: Low ABV beers are fine with me, but I needed more balance again. I wasn't much of a fan of this.

Overall, mostly really good beer and outstanding food. This place was a hit for me while in the ATL. I hope I can return sometime in the future.

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.
