Narrow rustic bar in a young grungy part of town. There is a stone topped bar with a wood back adorned with a long row of taps. An exposed brick wall us behind you as you sit at the bar. There is a dining room in the back. A few cask options. Extensive and thoughtful beer selection and food menu. Proper glass ware, good food and all reasonably priced. Great bar.

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.

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.
