Wow. This place was pretty cool. Nice front bar area that yields a small seating area in the back. The staff was attentive; we got there just before last call, and they made sure we had at least 2 beers before they stopped pouring. They had Curieux and Four on cask and some nice offerings that could not be found other places. Enjoyable: their organic bean burger and fries with parsley were both excellent and well-seasoned. My only complaint is that they closed earlier than they posted on the web, which is why I went there. Still cool as hell and very glad I went. I cannot imagine how crazy this place must be when they’re crowded.

Rough around the edges kind of antiquated tavern feel. Tons of good glassware behind the bar. Good tap selection but not insanely huge- had an Oud Beersel Framboise to start. Then a Smuttynose Wheat Wine that was a steal at $9 for a 22oz. Helpful and friendly staff, manager was very nice- took the time to speak with us at length and checked in more than once- we even got a freebie. Great bottle selection, too, with some older (not too old) vintages to choose from. This should get even better as the owner is currently stocking up a basement cellar nearby. The food was also great. Almost all organic, much locally grown. They even do their own canning from the garden. And then there was the Left Hand Milk Stout ice cream with house-made caramel- incredible! They definitely have a passion for what they are doing and it shows. I fully expect this place to get even better. Highly recommended.

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 = ★★★½ (Solid place, near the top of the list for locals and visitors)

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

I travel frequently and visit the top "places" in each city, and The Porter Beer Bar is one of the best that I’ve seen. The taps have are a wide variety of many local brews and some international, but what impressed me was the bottle list. The list is extensive and too much for one night of sampling. The service I received was phenomenal. The only problem is that I don’t live in Atlanta and it will be hard to get back to this gem.

Longest bottle list I’ve ever seen. It took me longer to read the list than it did to finish my first pint. Staff was knowledgeable and the food was great. Prices were kind of high on some things.

Located in a small storefront in the Little Five section of Atlanta, this beer bar is surprisingly large. There is a sizable bar near the entrance, and plenty of seating in the back. There is a musty, cozy ambiance. While I didn’t have any food while I was there, the menu looked amazing. The beer list is astoundingly large. The bottle list is organized by types of beer so that you can easily find what you want. The draught list is a large collection of excellent beers, and at a reasonable price. The servers and bartenders are friendly, quick, and very knowledgeable. The only downside was the atmosphere. It was not very busy, and there seemed to be nothing happening, but that is probably because I went on a Wednesday.

We’ve been to beer bars all over the U.S. and in Canada, The Netherlands, and England. None hold a candle to The Porter! The beer selection is top notch and constantly rotating. The food is phenomenal (best Belgian fries in the universe!). The staff is so friendly and kind and remembers our names! If you are a beer geek, the Porter cannot be missed and is worth a special trip.

Great beer bar in little five points. Nice cool air-conditioned interior, good tap list, deep and interesting bottle list albeit thin on the vintage stuff (at least they’re trying, which is more than I can say for just about anywhere else I’ve been.) Great service. Proper glassware.
