Huge place, bar up front, and lots of pool table in several rooms, plus other games. The beers were very tasty, but there was plenty of Bud Light being served, fo those who don’t like flavor in their beer. Food was good, service was good. Definitely should be on your list of places to visit while in Decatur.
I also think this was my favorite Atlanta brewpub. The atmosphere is great. It’s just really relaxed, the service is excellent, and there are a lot of fun games. It’s cool seeing people kick back and have a good time. Very diverse crowd. Laid-back, lived-in, and roomy. Local bands play here too. The variety and quality of the beers would keep me coming back to Twain’s.
Last stop prior to the airport. This is a much busier part of town, made worse by the major road construction in the area. Fortunately they have a dedicated lot. Reasonably busy at lunchtime on Friday, large restaurant area and bar in the back. They do flights of whatever they have, which in my case was 6 beers (three taps were blown). Beers fairly mediocre for the most part, but a couple of decent ones mixed in. Fairly loud music.

Fun place. Big and open with a lot of different games, like shuffleboard and bubble hockey. Wide range of house beers was fairly inventive and generally well-made. Twain’s was the top brewpub in ATL in my book, for both atmosphere and beer selection.

Visited later evening on a Wednesday. Located in Decatur, just around the corner from the main town center and the MARTA station. Large, open restaurant layout up front with tables straight ahead and to the right, and a large bar to the left. In the expansive back is a variety games tables; billiard, darts, video games, etc. 9 of their own beers on draft, full food menu. Beers are offered as 12 oz, 20 oz, pitcher or tasters (5 for $10, 9 for $18). Service was initially attentive, then more or less disappeared to talking to a friend at the other end of the bar. I was unable to get the back of his head’s attention, got tired of waiting for my bill, and just left what I hoped was enough to cover my beers. It wasn’t busy - there were three people seated at the bar, one of which was the friend he was talking to. Annoying.
70 = ★★˝ (Locals should check it out, visitors with extended time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
This is pub has a fun atmosphere with tons of bar games and a fairly wide open floor space. The bartender was bubbly, enthusiastic, and very helpful. I found the beers I tried to be of above average quality. It’s great to have another reason to make visit Decatur when I’m in the ATL region.
Large brewpub with plenty of dart boards, pool and shuffleboard tables. A large wooden bar up front with some booths surrounding. Service has always been solid on my visits. Food is good but nothing special. Usually about ten taps available with some bottles from other breweries. Prices are nice and samplers are available.
Visited here in November ’13. Great atmosphere with plenty of pool tables and other fun and games. Had about a dozen or more of their beers on tap, all were exceptional and very reasonably priced. Only had a appetizer (Macaroni and Cheese fritters) and it was exceptional. Very prompt, friendly service. Will return again when in the Atlanta area.
Large brewpub in cool area of Decatur. Lots of games such as pool and darts with tables spread throughout. Sat at the bar and had a sampler which was a decent deal. Beers were about average with a couple of nice rye beers. Got the burger which was good but bacon was soggy and the garlic fries were a greasy mess. They have nice bar selection too. Cool place to drink and have fun with a group. As a beer destination only though it is nothing great but I would definitely go back.
