Seriously if you live in Atlanta and havenít been here, youíre missing out. Probably the best place Iíve ever been to for beer. Huge tap list, huge bottle list, and a giant cellar of things that arenít even listed on the menu. You can go back and walk around and admire the bottles (stuff you wouldnít imagine theyíd have), point a few out, get prices from the staff, and decide to blow your load on them all. Prices were in line with what youíd expect at a bar/restaurant, with some outrageously priced and others just somewhat high. But thatís to be expected. I got a 2009 Old Stock Cellar Reserve to start, and finished with a 2011 French Oak Jose Marti. I could have spent north of $1,000 at this place. Iím not going to list everything in the cellar because Iím not even sure if theyíre supposed to have some of that out of distro stuff. Food was also incredibly good, staff was nicer than any beer bar Iíve ever been to, with lots of patience for me and my questions about both beers they had and their pricing. I canít recommend this place enough. Seriously though, even if you donít want vintage or crazy cellar bottles, just go and look at the place. Just awesome.

Amazing place in the hipster area of Atlanta. Nice place, great selection and amazing service. I wish I had a chance to visit this great place again.

Last rated this in 2009. Since then they have expanded to 48 taps which are constantly rotating/changing. If a new or rare beer makes it to GA, be assured it will show up here. Many special events, last night it was a mini Anderson Valley takeover. They are doing better with locals, they are now the go-to place to get Orpheus. Food still very good, as is the service, the bartenders are all extremely friendly and know their stuff. Cannot argue about this being rated #1 in the US.

Iíve been here a number of times since they opened and have never been disappointed .. except when our car was towed, but the Porter Bar had nothing to do t=with that, of course. Excellent knowledgeable service, an incredible beer list organized by style, and exceptional food. Highly recommended.
UPDATE: visited the Porter Bar again this weekend. Outstanding food (consistent rating by 4 people) and I discovered they have some rare beers in their cellar that are not on their extensive beer list. Ask and theyíll escort you into the beer cellar.

Nice bar with a decent selection of drafts all charged at a reasonable rate. The vintage stuff is a bit out of line, but they seem to be adding all the time and effort it took to put it in the fridge. Food was great and the server was very friendly.

How have I not reviewed this yet. Iíve been here 3 times and where do I start? The atmosphere is awesome, the beer selection is awesome, the staff has always been friendly. Itís not the roomiest place but it has enough space. Iím at a loss to say anything bad about it. Itís not the #1 beer bar in US for nothing.

Visiting on a Sunday in Atlanta. Biggest downside canít server beer until 12:30pm due to old school blue laws still in the city/state. The worst part is they advertise they are open, which they are, to serve food for the first 1.5 hours and not beer. I donít know about you but we were quite pissed showing up at these locations not able to drink beer. That aside, its in a more eclectic location in Atlanta. Typical "local" bar feel with about 30+ taps and extensive bottle list. The selection though good had no locals which seemed to be quite typical for the beer bars in the Atlanta area. Our bartender was very knowledgeable about what they had and beer in general helping make some recommendations off the beer list. That being said, the same complaint I have of all these beer places is a "paper" based beer list that goes out a date the day after its made. They had food that several locals were eating but we didnít partake in since we had eaten 20 minutes earlier. Prices were reasonable and overall one of the best places in Atlanta to drink craft beer. If in Atlanta, one of the few places for the beer nerd to enjoy good craft.

Nice little bar in an artsy neighborhood, small and cramped but I went during the middle of the day, so not too packed. Super friendly and adequately knowledgeable staff. Great tap list, made improvements from what people have been saying on here, and amazing bottle list. Food was great, one of the best veggie burgers Iíve ever had and everything else looked awesome. Prices were on par with what you expect in Atlanta. Definitely a good stop when youíre in town.

A quirky bar that is both uncomfortable and quaint. Service is awesome with lots of knowledge and friendly service. Selection is large but not much local. The bottle and vintage list is good and well priced. Didnít eat but the menu looked good. Overall worth the hype.

Iíll make the same comment I did about Wrecking Bar, donít open at 11am if you canít serve beer until 12:30, just insane. Long, narrow establishment tight squeeze to get past the bar into the dining room. Bar stools just sucked, all were different, a lot were broken and seemed from the 70ís, not a great start. Further back I enjoyed it more, really reminded me of a Belgian bar with the beers stacked against the back wall and the awesome cellar. The cellar would be an awesome place to hose a party, which they do. Service was great, super nice, extremely knowledgeable, knew something about each beer. 47 drafts, but a total mirage. Only 2 drafts were from Georgia, Illinois had 3. What? The drafts overall were commonly available stuff, super disappointing, so I went to the bottle list. Hey guys, update the bottle list. My first pick was sold out, really? I grabbed a Jai Alai while I perused the vintage list. Guess what, first vintage choice wasnít in either. UPDATE your damn list, it isnít that hard. At least Porter gets the point of the Vintage list destroying Brick Store. Verticals, rar beers, rar one offs etc. When I can choose from 3 Westbrook, multiple Evil Twin Iíve never seen, youíre doing something right. This place has charm and I life it. It would be world class if they improved the draft list and keep the bottle list up to date.
