A really superb bar right by the Little Five Points triangle. Itís long and very narrow with seating mainly at the bar. Then thereís a set of wonky steps leading up to a separate dining room and some steps down from there into a very nice cellar room which is used for tastings. There are 40-50 taps plus an excellent and very extensive bottle list so we were almost spoiled for choice. The service was great too. Highly recommended.

Yeah, this place is serious. I didnít love my experience, but that was based on my circumstance, as Iíd driven 12+ hours, had already eaten/had beers at Wrecking Bar, etc. Pretty serious list; not quite the best in the country, but no joke in any way, shape, or form. Service was solid, not particularly great but better than most. All in all, this place was worthy of top 50, but maybe not top 10. Reminded me a lot of Spuyten Duyvil with a much better list. Missing an intangible (maybe service?), but by measure completely outstanding.

Visited 03/11/15. Long, narrow space with a large back room. Refreshingly, the crowd was pretty diverse and friendly. Draft options were plentiful, but my attention was more focused on the impressive vintage bottle list. Plenty of fun Belgian things were available. I settled on a 2012 bottle of Orval, which was a steal at only $11. The food available looked very tasty and generously portioned. Overall, worthy of a detour. This place is undoubtedly one of the best bars in the Southeast.

This place is a beer lovers dream. Great tap list, and an extensive cellar. You could spend all day looking at the list. Food is good, typical pub fare. Service is good, knowledgeable servers. Gets a bit crowded at times and hard to get a seat. Neighborhood is a bit sketchy at times, and expensive. The only downfalls.

Food was good. Duck and foie gras soup dumplings? Yes, please. Massive tap list that included a four year vertical of founders breakfast stout, many local brews and many interesting choices. Very long bar with lots of seats. The vintage list was well curated and includes lots of 3/4 year old barleywines, stouts, and various Belgians. Overall a good experience and if beer selection is what your looking for, this is the place to go in Atlanta.

Ok ok ok.... so best rated beer bar right? This place actually kind of sucks.
The food is good, the selection is insane but dear god is this the most over priced placed I have ever been. Ambience is sort of like back alley (if youíve been there you know what Iím talking about).
Overall there are just better places to go. I mean, you can get this same stuff for literally half the price down the street.

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.
