In the basement of this old church building is the brewpub. Nice place with good beer. Will try the food and upstairs on next visit.

Went here over the Christmas break not knowing what to expect. Beer was above average, food was nice, but the best part about it was the atmosphere. The fully restored and renovated basement of a huge old mansion was unique and frankly badass. Will certainly be going back.

I’ve been to the Wrecking Bar twice and greatly enjoyed both visits. The ambiance and service were exceptional and the beers were very good. The selection has increased over the last month or so. The food is also quite good!
A welcome addition to the Atlanta beer scene!

Beautiful buildout in a historic building. The beers are solid and the food was pretty tasty. The bar seems to be pushing the cocktails but in general I prefer the beers. Fun place that seems very different than a typical Little-Five vibe.

A nice place, still crowded as it is very new, beer selection needs to get beefed up a little, but the food is nice and the place is clean.

On June 19, 2011 neighbors and beer lovers alike rejoiced at the opening of the Wrecking Bar Brewpub. After more than a year of renovations, the once graffiti covered eyesore was restored and converted into a lower level brewpub and an upstairs event space called the Marianna.
For homebrewer/owner Bob Sandage and his wife Kristine, beer was always intended to be the star of the show and the menu by chef Steve Mayer reflects that. Highlights include the roasted chicken brined in Belgium Wit served with asparagus and the boneless Brasstown beef short ribs braised in the Jemmy Stout beer and served with stone ground green chili grits. (Ask for cheese to be added to the grits for more calories and flavor!)
As for the beer, Brewmaster Chris Terenzi has expanded beyond the original four opening beers to a very drinkable Ol’Lantern Jaw English Mild, the hoppy but balanced Victor IPA (named for building’s original owner Victor H. Kriegshaber) a big brown Belgian ale called the WB Abbey Dubbel, the Grand Esteemer San Francisco Lager and the Wheelie Popper Summer Kolsch. Future plans include a, Hefeweizen, German IPA and a West Coast double IPA.
The servers are pleasant and knowledgeable thanks to a mandatory test on beer before they were hired.
The monthly firkin Friday event and the weekly Saturday brewpub tours are sure to expand the palates and knowledge of Inman Park residents and visitors alike.

Located in the lower story of a former architectural salvage store, hence the name, The Wrecking Bar is a cozy brewpub that has now managed to hit its stride. I tried several of their beers and found them all enjoyable. Their food is excellent and reasonably priced. They have a private room for a party of a dozen or so, and an inviting sitting area with a sofa and soft chairs in addition to the usual tables, booths and bar. The servers are very helpful and knowledgealable, though I did have to wait a fair bit a couple times for a beer. However, they were rather busy the day I visited. They hope to have more interesting beers in the future, so I hope they make it and become a genuine neighborhood bar. Atlanta needs more good brewpubs!

Kicking off with four starter beers - hey, it can’t all be mango-and-mint-infused barleywines on day one - they successfully delivered a quality golden, amber, witbier, and stout. As of writing this, they’ve already released a fifth beer: an English mild. The bar staff gave me their word that cask beer will be offered fairly soon.
While not exactly extensive, the menu is certainly diversified enough to provide you what you’re looking for, whether it’s a salad, sandwich, entree, appetizer, or, as I usually opt for (and did on this occasion), a beer-accompanying cheese plate.
Then, there’s the parking situation. If I find a place has limited or no parking available, requires me to hike a mile through unsavory parts of town, or is surrounded by ill-conceived, over-charging lots, then, well, they’ll be unlikely to see me again anytime soon. The Wrecking Bar has only a small number of spaces available, however, they currently have valets. Thank God for valets. I pray they remain in place at the Wrecking Bar.
With good food and good beer housed in a cool venue, oh, and with those trusty, hard-working valets, I’ll definitely be back soon. All in all, a pleasant spot that still even has that "new bar" scent.

This was my first visit and I hope to have many more. First, the building is pretty easy to find. It’s a really nice looking building with old southern columns. However, getting to the brewpub is another story. The front door doesn’t go to the pub. If you’re facing the building go around the side of the building to the left and go in through those doors. There isn’t a sign as of my visit signifying which door to go in. Just go in behind the patio tables.
The interior looks great. Stone and wood. Staff wears mechanics shirts with a Wrecking Bar logo patch. The service was impeccable. I never saw my water glass less than a quarter full and the servers were friendly and knowledgeable. The beer was equally good. 5 beers currently on tap. I don’t know if that will be the standard number as they get established or it’s just the number on currently. Chris Terenzi was the brewer at US Border Cantina back in the day and it’s nice to have him back brewing. My pulled pork sandwich was good and Matt (previous rater) and others I’ve heard have raved about the burger. Basically the menu was upscale pub grub.
They’ve only been open a week so the quality here is impressive.

New brewpub in Atlanta- only one visit so far but very impressed. had 3 beers, the Mild, Stout and IPA, all excellent. The bartender was very knowledgeable, the burger I ate was outstanding. This place should only get better- two cask beers will be on Friday, this is walking distance for me, I will be back many times.
Update: New brewer since my review, they now have a larger selection of beers in basically every style you can think of. The Friday casks are killer.
