I get to Atlanta about 3 or 4 times a year and have really enjoyed the burgeoning beer scene there. A customer picked this place out and since it was right across the street from my hotel, it couldn’t have been more convenient.

As you enter, the bar is ahead and to your right. There is a large seating area in front and then more seating along the wall opposite the bar and then even more room as you move back towards the washrooms.

I know this place is only a few years old, but they have managed to give it a nice lived in look. There is lots of dark wood & cool lighting. Note they have a lot of TVs, so it’s a good place to catch a game.

Service was friendly and prompt. While not beer geeky, they could at least tell us the new arrivals and what seasonal they had on tap. No complaints from me.

They had a decent sized and fairly animated crowd the night I was there.

The tap list is decent, most of the usual Irish bar suspects plus a smattering of crafts. They had new offerings from Sierra Nevada and Sweetwater on the black board, so don’t rely solely on the menu. Bottle selection was much larger and contains enough decent beers to satisfy most folks.

The food is pretty good and a notch above normal pub grub.

While not a beer destination, it is well worth a stop if you are in the neighborhood.

A great Irish beer bar to slip away from the madness of Dragon Con. Only this place is pretty loud, too. SDimly lit with lots of cool booths and hidden tables. Lots of dark mahogany and Irish sentiment.

The tap selection is pretty decent with Sierra Nevada and Sweetwater specials. A pretty good bottle selection, too.

The food is a bit pricy. I had some fish and chips and had to send my fish back, as it was hard as a rock.

I would recommend only drinking at Meehan's. The prices don't compensate for the small quantities of food. Beer and atmosphere is pretty nice, though.

Stopped in here to grab a beer after lunch while out and about for my buddy's bachelor party. Upon walking up it is quite easy to spot with a decent sized sign out front and the Irish flag hanging up. Upon walking in it looked similar to just about every Irish Pub I have been to with lots of wood and quite dim on the lighting. The hostess station is directly ahead of you upon walking in the door. There was plenty of seating around from private boothes, tables, and bar seating. We took a seat at the bar and were very promptly greeted by the bartender. Upon looking over the menu there was a decent selection of taps to choose from an more bottles as well. I saw two things that I had never ticked on the list so I asked for one. Out. Asked for the other. Out. Just my luck... Settled with a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale on draft as I wasn't looking to get a bottle at that time. We didn't try any of the food as we had just eaten lunch, but from what I could see everything looked really nice. Definitely worth a stop if you are walking by and want to grab a brew or two.

Found this place just down the street from out hotel. Nice atmosphere, was suprised by their beer list. They don't have the 100 bottles like is claimed in the description(more like 24), and 12 or so taps, but they did have a good mixture of imports and locals on tap and bottles. I didn't try any o the food so I can't comment on that. Service was pretty good but the server thought that Sierra Nevada Tumbler was a lighter version of their pale ale, but is a porter. If you are down town and don't want to drive any where decent place for a pint.
