Visited The Wrecking Bar this fall and really enjoyed the time I spent there; thought I should add a review, both the service and the beer deserve it!

The location is in an old mansion that was going to be torn down back in the day and has now been transformed into a unique brewpub.

The beer is excellent, tried several "half-pints" including the Acca Dacca, Das Hopfen, The Victor, and the Jeremy Stout. Thought the 2 IPAs were great, the stout was solid and so was the black IPA. The beers were fresh and flavorful, certainly hoppy yet balanced; nice crispness to them.

The service, excellent as well. Our server was a friendly dude who was a fellow beer geek as well as a home-brewer. We talked about beer and what not, it was nice to have someone that was excited and enthusiastic about their beer, as well as beer in general.

We even got a private tour of the brewery (located in the basement of the attached "garage") from the head-brewer. Learned about the history of the building and the plans for future development, including a Barrel Aging program.

Had a great time, enjoyed their beers, highly recommend.

If interested in more details, I did include them in a Blog Post regarding the ATL beer scene:

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.
