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.
Visited a number of years ago and never got around to rating it. Came here again in the middle of August 2017, early Thursday afternoon, prior to the Shelton Festival 2017. This place is wonderful. There’s definitely some places that are highly rated that I’ve gone to and found disappointing. Not here though. Only knock I can really give here is that they don’t do flights or smaller pours. That could perhaps have been due to the Shelton tap takeover, but I think that’s actually just the way of things, which means go with friends and share pours, or resign yourself to likely not trying everything you’d like. But there will be a plethora of options. Service is pretty good, especially considering the packed house on a Thursday afternoon. Bottle list is solid, and there may be a bargain or two among the list, but expect to pay a premium for premium bottles. With Wrecking Bar (one of the better Atlanta breweries) just two blocks away, this is a must stop on an Atlanta trip.
You could spend hours flicking through the beer menu in this place, extensive is perhaps an understatement. There’s a lot of vintage and discontinued bottled brews in the list too. If you’re just here for something from tap you’re pretty much spoiled for choice again, with the long row of taps against the back wall of the long bar that runs from the front to the back of the thin but deep room in this shop unit conversion.
Visited in February 2017. Neighbourghood is very strange and lots of hipsters roaming around. Great tap list (BA Old Ruffian finally, thanks for this one!). Food was great and portions very big. Porn Dog was HUGE. Bottle list was one of the best I have ever seen but unfortunately didn’t have time for that. Great place.
Visited here in mid-February ’17 while in town visiting my son. Can’t add much more than the other 108 reviews have said. Great beer list, the cellar beers look tremendous - not in my budget range though!. Dark, homey atmosphere. The thing thing that really stood out for me was the outstanding service, the waiter was very friendly, humorous and not pretentious like some can be at beer geek kind of places. Glad I finally visited this place.
Stumbled on by chance and so pleased we did great beer selection lots of breweries and beers ive never tried before. No domestic either which forced mrs to drink craft !. Will go here again in the future when in Atlanta.
Awesome place. The tap list is quite good, but the bottle list is where it’s really at... This is one of the best bottle lists I’ve seen anywhere! Tons of sours and stouts, with a sizeable amount of barley wines, IPAs and saisons for good measure... The fact that they’ve got a separate entry for berliner weisses on their menu says a lot. Friendly staff and good food rounds off one of the best places I’ve been in the US.
Located in eclectic Little Five Points, this bar is part hipster, all beer nerd. There are 50-some taps and a larger bottle collection. The food is quite good if not overpriced. This has the feel of an old home that is rarely cleaned thought the servers stay busy.
