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.

Visited in February 2014. Just what I hoped to find, and (half) expected to find in a part of town that had been described to me as "hippy". Gently bohemian I’d say. The bar is long and narrow with a slightly shabby chic feel. Seemed to open up a bit into more of an eating area at the back although we just sat at the bar & I didn’t explore much up there. Atmosphere was a little compromised by the fact that the little green/seating area near the front door seemed to be the gathering point for all the local bums & tramps. Not that that really impacted on the ambience inside the bar.

We ended up staying rather longer here than intended due to failing to correctly note the opening times of the Wrecking Bar just down the road. The well-curated draft list kept us nicely occupied for all that time so we didn’t have to stray into the bottle list. The selection was a good mix of solid beers, both domestic and imported although a little light on local stuff - perhaps was just unlucky with timing on that. Service was excellent - enthusisatic and clued up - and the bart ender was very generous with free samples, which is just as well as I would have been shotfaced had I had a full pour of everything I wanted.

Well worth a trip. Lodging in Decatur - where there are some budget options with parking and a good smattering of decent bars - and using the MARTA to travel to Little Five Points and/or more into the city centre is a good option.
