The selection isn't as large as Summits Wayside Tavern or some of the larger Taco Macs, but the quality of the brands served seems to be much higher (15 taps and about 65 bottles). I mean, this place is the only place I know of to serve McChouffe and they've got it on tap. The beers are also served in larger glasses here than at most other places (my wife's Dogwood Summer came in a nonic imperial pint glass and my Aventinus came in one of those half liter Aventinus logo glasses). Another great thing is that this is a no crap on tap bar and it's nice to see the place full on a Monday evening.

The decor is just what I'd like my home bar (or my dream bar to own) to look like. They seriously went for the old-fashioned English or Irish pub look with lots of dark woods, hardwood floors, tables and furniture, with a lot of aged brick. The found-wood door handles are a nice touch as are the barrel tables in front of the pub for outdoor drinking (great idea) and the barrels and old bicycle behind the windows above the front door. The ceilings are immesely high (I'm guessing 20 feet at least) which may contribute to the loudness, but it wasn't too loud to carry on a conversation. There's also a loft over the bar where you can sit with your beer or meal in addition to the open floor area.

I also loved the food here. I had the fish and chips, which were quite tasty. The potato wedges were obviously cut from very young potatoes because of their size and shape. My wife's chicken fingers were probably the best chicken fingers I've ever had, even when reheated the next day in the toaster oven. In addition to the stuff we got, they've got more pub grub like sandwiches and burgers, but also have a selection of salads and pastas. It's a bit pricier than fast food or a family restaurant, but compared to the other beer bars like Summits or the local brewpubs, it's probably on the cheaper end of that spectrum.

My only complaints was that the service was a little slow, but it wasn't unattentive and the place was busy. I'd also ideally like to see a larger selection (especially on tap) but I think their smaller selection actually provides some benefits the larger places don't have since they'll go through beer more quickly here.

All and all, this place is the best place for beer in Atlanta, and would probably rank highly on the best places to have a beer on this site if more people rated it.

Always great beers and good times here. Can be crowded on certain days, but its worth it. The Cellar list is ridiculous... Great menu.

Absolutely love this place. Beer selection is uncanny with the infamous upstairs Belgian bar. Food is fantastic, great value and the bar tenders and patrons can't be beat. In my top 3 places to have a beer.

Atlanta is lucky. This and the porter are amazing places. Both in my top 10 in the country. Great taps, great vintage list, great food.

Made this a must visit on my trip to Atlanta. We were seated up in the back by the Belgian bar. Selection included taplists for both bars, and I went for the local stuff.

Server knew what they poured and glassware was spot on for everything, and in brewery marked glasses (nice touch).

Service was good and the crowd on a Saturday afternoon was a nice subdued group of craft drinkers. This place is in an eclectic artsy area. It fits in perfectly and is a relaxed place.

Food is generic pub grub. Decent but don't expect much.

I'd go back here as I'd say its the best option in Atlanta.

Saw this advertised on Atlanta Eats. My wife and I went on a Friday night. Was crowded, but still had a great time. Sat in the Upstairs Belgium bar. For as big a crowd the service was great. Food was a little expensive, but was good. I would stick to the sandwiches if you are upstairs. Server was very knowledgable about the beer, and even with as busy as they were sent me two samples.

I would like to go back and actually enjoy just the beer, definitely will go back.
