Atlanta needed another brewpub that delivers a rotating list of interesting quality brews. This is especially welcome in the Little 5 area that already has a burgeoning scene of good eat and drink. The ambiance in here is rustic and open. A patio is available. All Wrecking Bar parking is valet, but there is much parking on nearby streets. The service was knowledgeable and efficient. I liked the beer list with a couple interesting hoppy brews and some Belgian styles too. Everytime I visit Atlanta I go to the Porter and having the Wrecking Bar just a few yards away is an added bonus.
In the basement of a beautiful house that is now used to host events. A very clean cellar feel to the inside with a nice large bar and plenty of quaint seating throughout the area. Service was good, I was at the bar and the bartender was knowledgeable and happy to offer suggestions. Selection was nice with 12 taps plus a cask. Bob the brewer was awesome and gave an amazing tour. They seem to always have a quite limited release on. I also liked the option of half pints on most beers. I thought the food was quite good and will be getting some on the rest of my visits. Prices were quite competitive. My favorite Atlanta place so far.
Visited this brewpub on 26.4.2016. When I came to Atlanta the last time, around 5 years ago, there was only Sweet Water brewing, now you find several promissing beer places in the city. The Wrecking Brewpub is located in an old villa with a nice patio outside and a strong English ’Victorian’ Pub atmosphere inside. The brewery is just next door, operating on two floors and is equipped with a long bar next to the fermentation tanks. Seems the ground floor can be booked for events. The beers were delicious, had a Kölsch, a tart ale and an IPA. In total they had 12 beers on tap all brewed on the premisses. In addition they have a nice Scotch selection. Burger and fries were also quite good. The service was outstanding, very friendly and knowledgable about her beers. A really good brewpub!
Headed over here at 11am because that’s when they open. However, on Sunday’s they can’t serve beer until 12:30, so I basically sat around for 1.5 hours. Blame my ignorance for the wait, but don’t understand opening before you can serve beer, it was dead any way, so they should open at 12:30. While I waited had a starter which was great, lunch was ok, but I loved the menu, lots of things I wanted to order. The atmosphere is great, looks like a funeral home outside, inside stone everywhere, comfortable basement feel. Service was ok, seemed nice, but very engaging or overly helpful. 8-10 drafts on tap plus a pretty solid bourbon list. The beers were supremely disappointing, they don’t know what they want to brew. The claim to brew west coast/belgian beers, but to me they are basically poorly executed English and German crap. I really wanted to like this place but the beer is such a let down it just cannot be considered a decent brewpub.
Visited here in mid-April ’14 both on a Friday night and then for lunch on Saturday. The service at the bar was excellent on Friday night, a bit slow for lunch on Saturday. Great ambiance and decor in the basement of an old mansion. Lots of exposed beams and boulders. Great, talkative, friendly crowd; experienced bartenders in period get-up. At least a dozen of their beers on tap, many different styles and all I tried were above par. Pretty solid menu and prices were not outrageous. Great location as well just south of Little Five Points. A must visit if in the Atlanta area for any amount of time.
Very cool brewpub, and some surprisingly good beer. Enjoyed this place a lot more than nearby Porter Bar. Old school decor, with a cool colonial building. This place specializes in cocktails as well, so between that and craft beer expect hipsters. Selection is very good here, with lots of drafts and casks to choose from. Flight is limited to the four or five beers they choose, but half pints are cheap and available. They pour samples as well. Cool ambiance and good service.
Beautiful brewpub located in an old mansion in a pretty cool part of town. Parking available which is always nice. Beautiful interior with lots of wood and stone. Definitely on the upscale side compared to your average brewpub, but in a good way for once. Was able to grab a seat at the bar and enjoy a great pastrami sandwich with homemade kimchi. Sell all of their beers in pints and shortys(8oz) for very reasonable prices. Had a 4 half pints and a sandwich with fries for around $20. Really great place.
An awesome remodeled historic building with a great atmosphere and service. The draft list is solid and the food is fantastic (get the pulled pork sandwich!). Value is good too. I really enjoyed this place, and will definitely be back next time I’m in town.
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!
