I was surprised to see folks smoking here, and that detracted from the otherwise decent atmosphere - a few notches above a dive bar, meant in a good wsy. Buskers in the smsll square in front. Amazing bottle list and terrific draft list. Great staff and eclectic clientele. OK, thatís the first tine Iíve ever used the word eclectic in a sentence, but it seems to fit. Just an OK place, but maybe my expectations were too high.

Deep bar full of benches to get lost in for a few hours. New American-focused taplist with a few staple imports. Saison DuPont on draft is always appreciated.

Kind of a small place. Inside is rather narrow with a long bar and sort of an industrial feel to it. Rebar and such included in the decor. Good selection of beers from all over the world, though I guess a bit of a focus on east coast/southeast breweries and beers, but plenty of cool imports as well.

Pretty good service here and the prices are fair, though pretty much on par for what Iím used to in bargains or anything.

Looks like they have a separate dining room and thereís food available here as well, though we didnít eat. Food menu/options looked pretty tempting, but since a big meal was on deck and we had already hit up The Varsity, decided to pass.

All in all, a very solid beer bar. The real exciting options seemed to be more in the bottle, but Iíd imagine they get some pretty good drafts here, too.

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. (Visited 20 February 2014).

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.

Finally, I was able to whittle time to visit this place while in ATL. Wow, what a weird neighborhood. Hard to find parking, too. But this place mostly lives up its billing. Lots of moderately hard to find brews on tap, and some gastro-pub quality nosh. Itís an odd joint, super-cluttered. But they serve good beer in the proper glassware, and the foodís good. Mixed crowd of hip couples and plain weirdos. Efficient if disinterested server. Did I mention good beer?

This bar is awesome and ridiculously close to my buddyís apartment. The ambiance is very much like the Brick Store or Trappeze. It looks like the inside of a castle or some other ancient structure. Candles provided most of the light. Service was efficient, engaging, and knowledgable. I didnít get to eat on this visit, but I will next time. The tap list is extensive without being so large rotation never occurs. As with most places in GA, the beer prices are fantastic, especially for the draft offerings. I canít wait to go back!

The Porter is ridiculously good. The food is beyond stellar. The beer selection rotates and is nearly incomparable in the region. The Porter has surpassed the Brick Store in beer selection, food options, and most importantly, the ability to get inside and order a beer without being suffocated in a sea of bodies. Thatís not a knock against the Brick Store, I still love the place, itís just that I canít think of higher praise than saying I actually prefer a place in Atlanta over the Brick Store.

Visited early evening on a Thursday. Sort of grubby place in the middle of sort of grubby Little Five Points. The grime sort of worked for this place, with a really cool large front bar, and seating to the back crammed into a narrow space. The bartender was very attentive, and was quick with suggestions and info about the beer. The beer list was impressive, and I was surprised to see Thornbridge Jaipur on cask. Overall, good place to grab a beer and hang out.

82 = ★★★Ĺ (Solid place, near the top of the list for locals and visitors)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

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.

Nice vibe, a bit dark and cramped. Staff is helpful, taplist kicks butt, bottle list even better. Prices in general are pretty good, but the vintage bottles (even those that arenít vintage) are pretty spendy.
