Classy all the way. Since it is primarily a beer place, the snobbiness only reaches a moderate level. The specialty beers are typically German, and best enjoyed in the small outddoor Biergarden. They don’t brew many Belgians, but those they create are masterful.
This is a frequent stop for me in Atlanta. I don’t like eating there as it is a bit pretentious with the food, suckling pig, duck, rack of lamb, etc. If you like the five star restaurant menu that may be your scene. The atmosphere is a bit stuffy but once you make it back to the pool room its a bit more laid back. This is a great place for beer especially during the winter months when the feature a variety of Belgians. A must visit.
So this place is basically the only great brewpub in atlanta. They dont have a huge selection, but they have had some cool stuff both times i have been there, very high qualiity stuff at that on tap. Depending on where you sit the atmosphere is different. The first time i was there it seemed really high class, but the second time it seemed way more chill.
Large wood-paneled ski-lodge building type. Vaulted ceilings and a rather large patio. Five beer taps with seasonal rotations. Excellent selection of wine and diverse menu with organic and pesticide free foods. Slow service when we visited, although this was the middle of the afternoon. Great food and pretty good beer, but look for bargains elsewhere.
I was here twice during the RB homebrewing competition. The food here is definitely upscale and pretty good. It’s not your normal "pub grub". The ambiance is nice too; it’s a classy place. The beers are pretty much middle of the road. My only complaint was that the service was slow. Ordering a beer should not take 10 or 15 minutes. this happened twice! Maybe it was just bad luck for me.
Not your typical brewpub in that it almost appeals to a more "high-class" crowd. The menu is full of nicer dishes you’d never find at a typical brewpub, but the prices also coincide. Usually have about 5 different beers on tap and they’re usually pretty good. The service has also been fairly good the few times I’ve been there. As far as brewpubs in Atlanta go, this is the place.
This is a must when I am in the Atlanta area. I have tried most items on their menu and have never been disappointed. The beers are always great, they are always changing the varieties so you never know what to expect when you stop in, this too keeps me coming back. An absolute must stop!
We went here to wind down the GA 14% gathering. The two beers I sampled were well crafted, (as were the few others I had sampled at the gathering earlier). This is a large place with restaurant area, game room area, and I think an upstairs bar. I’ll have to go back to this place when I’m in Atlanta again.

This is a fine establishment. Easily the best pub in Atlanta. Well-crafted brew in a variety of styles. Convenient to the interstates, extremely clean, ample parking. Refined clientele. I didn’t try the food. The brewmaster/owner checked up on me and asked me what I thought of the beer. Rerate This is a very accessible pub if you’re coming through on I-85 or I-75 and have a couple of hours to kill. Roomy, Lodge-like, food was OK, but not stellar. Late afternoon and the place is deserted.
