These guys are killin' it for the OTP ATL NORTH market. They have all your typical and then some. I was there earlier and got hooked up on some Matilda(new to our market), got hooked up on some Burnt Hickory(little/new/extremely new to our market) and got hooked up on some Vanilla Gorilla.
WWCM has 2 guys who really know whats going on with the beer selection. Every time I go there they are pitching me on the new stuff and I always buy. Jamie and Ellis are the guys to see.
There is one bar keep with a red beard who can never seem to remember my face, who told me Goose Island Matilda was a Belgium watch out for a Zach Galifinakis look a like.
Overall, what a great bar!!! AMAZING wings and up to date/awesome beer selection.

Located in the back of a shopping center, can be harder to find from 120 if you dont know where it is, but worth stopping in.

While the main area can get crowded, the smoking lounge or patio is very relaxing and a great atmosphere.

The food is good, if you like Wings they have a huge assortment of flavors, I normally get the feathers which are excellent.

Now the beer selection is top notch, while they might not have a Taco Mac sized selection, they make up with in quanity, lots of Belgians and rare micro's. They also have aged bottles for sale, got a 4yr old bottle of Sweetwaters Festive Ale a while back. Along with an excellent beer menu, they usually do beer tastings once a month, with also an excellent presentation of the beer.

I was actually kind of excited to try this place as I heard it was a bit different then the ones I am used to back home. But alas, I was wrong. This was the same college dumping ground I had been accustomed to back in Greenville as ours is right next door to Barleys and you run into the people coming out half the time. They had a slightly better selection of drafts only because they had terrapin India Brown on tap, which up here you cannot get anything but macro garbage. I did not hang around long enough to even have one as I did not want to waste any of my time. Not the place I normally go and not the place I will ever go back to.

This used to be an independent Wing/Sports bar, with a decent beer selection and food. It got sucked up at some point by the Wild Wing Cafe franchise, and still only as a decent selection and decent food. The atmosphere is downright awful. Even when I was a prepubescent false id beer drinker I thought this place was immature, now that I'm slightly older than the college (and high school) dropouts that populate the place its even more unbearable. Go there if you must, but avoid a Friday night at all costs, unless you're into the whole redneck-frat-kid-with-a-frayed-baseball-cap-yelling-racial-obscenities-across-the-room thing

Decided to try out the Wild Wing Café and see what I thought. I sat in the “Shuffle Smoking Lounge” portion of the Wild Wing. Their beer list is fairly impressive with at least 50 beers overall including microbrew, Belgian, German, and many others. The décor is kitschy. Many walls are covered with a beer bottle collection behind chicken wire. The age of the patrons seemed to vary but one could safely say that this is a hangout for the good ‘ol local girls and boys. I had the chicken feathers (tenders) sampler platter and it was OK but not as good as I was expecting from a chicken wing place. The lounge has a jukebox, shuffle board table and darts. The atmosphere would not make me return but the beer selection will. A few beers are unusual enough to warrant another visit.

This is my favorite place to stop off between work and home. I love their wings and they have one of the best beer selections in the Marietta area. The beer list is broken down by country.

The walls are shelves from floor level to approximately 15 feet covered with empty beer bottles and cans of all shapes and sizes from the very good (saw a Chimay bottle and a McEwan's Scotch Ale bottle) to the very poor (they have a row of PBR from pony cans up to the 24oz tall boys). With the huge beer list you will be told sometimes that they are out of a particular beer when you try to order it which is my only complaint.

A tip: if you want to try tasteing some beers do it before you order the wings as they can be taste bud scorchingly hot if you order the wrong ones.
