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.

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.

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.

Well this place is something else. 450ish beers. Smart food menu. Awesome dark and wood everywhere bar. Good service. Badass.

Cool small bar in a neighbor hood that kind of had and San Francisco vibe to it. Anyway back to the bar which is long and narrow. Ton of nice taps and some very cool bottle selection that was on the pricy side. Drafts very a little expensive, but they had a tap selection located with hard to find beers so you are paying for rarity a little which is fine in my book. Food looked and sounded great. Must stop.

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.

A bit rough on the inside where the chairs are worn through, but nothing that is off putting for me. Bartender was quite knowledgeable and happy to offer recommendations. Selection is top class with a number of taps and a large bottle selection. Food was solid but not out of the world. Prices were a bit steep but worth it for the selection.
