V- very homey. It's in the basement of an old plantation style house.

Q- best beer in Georgia. If you're in Atlanta, you have to check it out.

Ser- great staff, and they're all really cool.

Sel- they have everything from a kolsch to IPAs to big barrel aged stouts, and they're all done perfectly.

F- great food. Chef Terry Koval is a phenomenal chef and his menu is pretty outstanding. They get all of their produce from a farm they own outside of the city. Fresh ingredients, great flavors, affordable pricing.

Overall- the best brewery in GA. Ask any local in the beer scene and they will tell you the same.

Now this was the way to end the night. Save the best for last. Incredible vibe, service was great, beers were really solid, and the Cure was playing through the speakers. (It was some old '80's alternative mix, which was stellar.
Hit here for all that I mentioned above (even if you dislike The Cure). Really awesome, chill place with super-solid brews.
If I am ever in the area again, or know of someone visiting, this place is on the short list. Cheers!

Stopped here and made our way to the bar. The place is awesome, the bar and dining area are underneath the house and around back. It gives off a more upscale type of look to it. The service was great, the beers were good and the menu for food looked really impressive. I wish I would have waited to eat here instead of eating at Torched Hop. If I ever find myself back in Atlanta I'll definitely be stopping back here.

One of the best places in Atlanta. The beer is great and they have great food. The place is in an old house that was renovated so the brewery and restaurant are downstairs while the banquet room is upstairs.

I really enjoyed Wrecking Bar. Diverse beer selection of bitter, koelsch, pilsner, DIPA, stout, dubbel, tripel, cask and wood aged IRS all on tap! Quality and service were excellent and the food was outstanding. I had three starters of charred octopus, beer heart tartare, and beef tongue crisps.

The Wrecking Bar is fantastic. My only complaint is that why did this place not exist when I lived in Inman Park? (I know. It took awhile for Georgia beer laws to change.)

Sat at the bar on a Wednesday night beginning about 6:30 very busy when I left at 8pm.

V- A restaurant first but gives off a nice homey vibe. Folks come here for the beer and the staff is constantly talking amoungst themselves about beer. But not your classic beer bar vibe. Still very pleasant. Slightly dark. Rustic 4.0

Qual - 4.25

Sel - An excellent selection from grisette to IPA to stout to barrel aged selections. 4.5

Ser - Fine. I felt that the place was a bit geared towards the locals and regulars. But fine service. Nothing to otherwise complain about. 3.75

Food - I had the tongue and cheek pie. Very nice. 4.25

I have been here twice, only once for dinner. The tap list is nice for a brewpub, they had some casks at the bar that were not publicized at all, you just had to know about them. If you like hot beer the casks are for you. The venue is nice, it is just always packed. There is nowhere to wait, so you get really crowded. We got a table within an hour and sat in the back cellar area. I tried several beers, all of which were average or slightly above. The food tasted good and they have lots of choices. The next day me and a buddy both had food poisoning from eating the hamburger. I would recommend against it as a food choice. I will honestly probably never return based on my experience.

This place is awesome, great quality brewpub. I was leaving town on a flight that day as I walked in on a work party. Even though they weren't open the owner still allowed us to sit down like it was. He provided great service and took time to answers my question about the brewpub business. This place really turned me on to smoked porters, highly recommended.

A beautifully restored old mansion. Upstairs function room, downstairs restaurant, outdoor bier garden. Stone, wrought iron, somewhat of a medieval feel. Great vibe.
There were a dozen beers on tap. My wife is a sour fan, so she had Dr Funke's Sour Pale Ale, which she enjoyed a lot. I had Atlanta Altbier, a good alt, and Victor UPS, very piney.
We both had the Vegan Korean Sandwich. It was very good, but I make a better Raritan.
Service was excellent on a busy Friday night.

This was my first stop in the Atlanta beer scene on my recent trip. I found the atmosphere, service, and food to be excellent. What impressed most was that the beer was of good selection and above average and comparing to other brewpubs in the area, this one stood out with the best beer (I also went to Twains and Park Tavern). They had a great variety and it was tough to choose what I wanted next. I had a beer that tasted like straight liquid basil and was tough to get through but they said it is a favorite, especially with ladies. I could barely get past an 8oz. I did think it was an interesting beer but moved on to other good ones.

The only thing I did not care for is that when you ask for a sampler, you can not pick you beers, they have a set of beers that they insist you try. Otherwise I have nothing bad to say about this place and plan to return again and again when coming back to Atlanta.
