I come here every time I come to Atlanta. They don't have so many beers on tap--just 18, but they have a great bottle selection, and, of course, a great liqueur selection. Sometimes their bartenders can be dicks, but its the Vortex, no nonsense here! Their house beer, the laughing skull, is OK, but they have much better selections.

Ate lunch and had some beers with friends here, we sat outside on a nice afternoon.
Eccentric burger place with a good selection of beer and cocktails. Loved the brash humor of the food and drink menus.
They had about a dozen or so beers on tap, mostly local or mainstream craft beer. Drafts were reasonably priced as they were 20 oz. imperial pints. They had a more extensive bottle list if you couldn't find a draft beer to your liking.
I had the "house" beer and another local Atlanta brewed beer to go along with my Coronary Bypass burger. If you love meat and good bar food, you'll love the menu.
Our waitress was attentive and asked about the next beer before we were finished. Thumbs up!

This a great place, not really a beer bar, but more of a burger joint with a good beer selection, I had a Bell's Two Hearted Ale, on tap. You won't find hard to find beers here, but what you will find are good beers to go with the awesome burgers.
The atmosphere has been great every time that I have been, a very eclectic crowd with rock & punk music blaring in the background. The service is always good and they know what they are talking about, beer-wise and food-wise. I would like to see a bigger tap list, but they do have a rather extensive bottle list with many styles and brewers to choose from.
This is a place, if and when in Midtown Atlanta that you should hit up at least once if not more often. The prices are reasonable and the overall experience is worth it.

Had a blast at The Vortex. The service was very good, and the vibe is very hip but diversified. We ran into a bachelorette party and business people while in line for drinks.
The beer selection is better than average, but they mostly have a large selection of mainstream beers. There is a craft brew selection, but not a lot of specialty series, one-offs, or rare beers. Still, simple clean beers pair awfully well with a great burger, and I think that's what they're going for here.
Overall, the sexy photos on the brick walls, crazy good burgers and upbeat atmosphere make this place what it is, not the beer selection. Still a goodie, though, and an Atlanta must.
