Had the chance to stop by here for a few hours and I was not dissapointed at all. Probably the best atmosphere out of any bar I have ever beer to. The entire time I stared at the beer list trying to decide what I wanted to try next. Everyone who worked there knew the beer lists very well and were very informative. I really want to go back and spend more time but I live 8 hours away.
This is THE place for beer lovers inside I-285! Not only do they have a huge beer selection, but they feature a lot of first-class brews. Food is good and reasonably priced. Because they are practically on top of the Decatur rapid-rail station, you can let MARTA be your designated driver. Be sure to check out the Belgian Bar upstairs!
I came here expecting to get some tasty beer and oh yeah, also some food. Imagine my surprise when I discovered the food was the best part of the experience. Not that I had anything against the beers... but good beer AND good food is an awesome combination. Donít miss this Decatur landmark.
GREAT food to go w/ a VAST selection of beers, including a wide selection of Belgians. Great rotation on taps, and great special events like casks, etc. The food could use a little bit more of a selection than just "meat and beer," otherwise would be a great date place for ladies that enjoy world beers. Have had unknowledgeable servers in the past, but generally very helpful. Menu is also very descriptive and thorough.
A must for any beer lover. Parking is less than desirable, but the upstairs bar atmosphere is great. It was jam-packed when I went one evening, and a little loud, but the beer selection wasnít bad. If youíre looking for a Belgian, youíre in luck here. There is a fair diverse selection of domestic microbrews, but Iíve had better. The prices, however, are very reasonable, especially for higher grav beers. Didnít try the food, but the menu doesnít inspire a gourmet chef - itís the typical pub fare, which Iím not going to complain about until I try it. Staff was very friendly and prompt with service...and the proper glassware was supplied (at the proper temperatures too). Number of taps not as impressive as, say Taco Mac, but bottle selection is (esp. for Belgians). If only it wasnít such a distance of a drive for me...
Iíd live here if I could. If the selection downstairs doesnít get you, wait till you go "up the stairs and to the left" and enter the Belgian Bar! I love the atmosphere ... no macros or TVs and the music is just loud enough to hear without enroaching in your conversation. Iíve never had a bad meal here and I LOVE the Brunswick Stew.
If you canít find something here to love then you canít be satisfied.

Great bar. Aventinus, Celebrator, Brooklyn Seasonals, Terrapin, and others on tap downstairs. Sweet, very well-stocked Belgian bar upstairs. Cantillon FouFoune, Girardin Gueuze Black Label, Rochefort and dozens of others available. Wunder and I ordered up a mini Flemish Red tasting. Great ambiance all-around. Accessibility by bus is a plus.

This is a model on what a craft beer pub should be. You have the brick, the wood, and the excellent choices on the beer menu (upstairs and down). It has a small town feel since itís located on a side street with some shops,etc. The food was also excellent. I had the "Shepardís Daughter Pie ($8.95)" which helped absorb several of the beers I had. Dave the owner is a great guy and takes time to hang with his customers. A must visit for anyone in or visiting the Atlanta area! It doesnít get much better than this! Donít forget to go "upstairs and to the left!"
An absolute must visit for beer lovers on a trip to Atlanta. There are 2 bars one upstairs which has 7-8 Belgian drafts and countless in bottles and a downstairs main bar where there are some darn good micros on draft and in bottles. The food was excellent and so was the service, but I am all about the brews, brother, and this joint has them.
