Stopped in on a Monday afternoon. Bar and stools are somewhat weathered, but everything seemed clean. We were quickly addressed, and all our questions were answered. Huge bottle list. Draft list is almost completely seasonLs and rarities. The only year-round beer I saw on tap was Two Hearted. Proper glassware, beer was properly poured, bar tenders seemed knowledgable, would definitely recommend.

Solid foundational beer selection with a continuous influx of new and exotic brews on tap and in various size bottles that offers exploration opportunities for any palate. Friendly staff complements awesome seating options: outdoor seating with a view of Little Five Points, a table upfront or at the magnificently long bar or the tables in the back of the store offer a more intimate setting. My favorite bar.

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?

Iíve been here twice, though I donít remember much about the first trip (it was a while ago). Last time I got brats and sauerkraut and my wife got a veggie burger; both were very good, but didnít blow me away (maybe a 7.5 for food, rather than 7). Service was friendly and food came fast, though drink service was just slightly slow. To be fair it was really crowded and we were all the way in the back. Great beer selection and I love how they have themed nights for beers on tap (at least they did my two visits; the most recent was sour ales). Iíd like to go back many more times to keep trying it out - thatís as good of a recommendation as I can give.

Been here many times and just now rating. Superb list. Great food. Knowledge very friendly staff. Absolute must go. In my opinion, only because of the more neighboor-like feel, this edges out The Brickstore. And I heard they are expanding!!

The Porter Beer Bar is far and away the oasis or beer Mecca of Atlanta and certainly one of a very small list of great beer destinations in the SE. Itís in the quirky but cool Little Five Points area. The taps are abundant and the bottle list will keep you reading till the wee hours...and coming back frequently. I live up north but make sure I stop here whenever Iím in Atlanta. Amazingly the food is top notch...certainly gastropub quality. I also canít say enough about the servers and bartenders who are knowledgeable and focus on enhancing your experience. Donít miss this place if in the area.

Anytime I am in Atlanta, I make my way to The Porter. Great selection of beer on tap and great food to offer as well. Cozy bar, with mason jar lights and a knowledgeable enthusiastic staff! Wish I was in Georgia more often!

Had a great selection and a huge list. The decor is vintage and cluttered. Large space, but quiet atmosphere - respectful crowd. food was delicious and service was personable and helpful. Not at all pompous considering the selection of beer offered. Had a Tsjeeses and two other Abbey Ales (I went a year ago and canít remember them - I donít know why I didnít rate any of those beers either). I will definitely go back if I ever go to Atlanta again.

Iím probably completely biased, as this is "my" beer bar, but at the end of the day, they did have to earn it to get me to say that. The Porter has excellent staff, service, selection, and even food. If I were a foodie who knew nothing about beer, itíd still be a worthwhile destination, due to the husband-wife collaboration of Nick, the chef, and Molly, the beer and general operation person. If you make more than a few appearances, they are sure to recognize you and know you, and youíll never be disappointed by the selection, a wonderful mix of a few awesome standards (Bernardus Abt 12, Delirium Tremens, and Duchesse du Bourgnone are on about 80% of the time, and youíll almost always see at least one of them) and a really cool mix of others, some obscure and some well-known. Trust me, if youíre a beer person, you wonít ever leave disappointed. For a true sense of the awesomeness of the bar, come for one of their beer classes, held regularly on the third Tuesday of each month.
