Wrecking Bar Brewpub is perhaps Atlanta’s most unique brewery. The brewpub is located in the trendy Little Five Points area, but you might have a hard time picking the building out-Wrecking Bar is located in a Victorian-style home which has also served as a church, a dance school, and an antique store. After admiring the exterior of the old home, we moved to the basement, which is where the restaurant and brewery are located. The basement still looks similar to its original state-the walls are the stone that makes up the foundation of the house, and there are wood ceilings, tables, and chairs to complement the stone. The interior is dim, but it makes for a cozy atmosphere.
Wrecking Bar serves traditional pub food, but with unique, usually Southern-inspired, twists. For example, their menu includes Chicken & Dumplings and beef tongue. We shared beer cheese soup, a classic burger, and fries. We enjoyed our whole meal, but we particularly liked the beer cheese soup. We also ordered several half pours of beers in order to try their various offerings. Wrecking Bar rotates their taps frequently, so it isn’t hard to try something new every time you visit. In addition to their inventive names, Wrecking Bar’s beers feature lots of experimental ingredients, such as a pale ale brewed with spruce or a stout brewed with chilies and cinnamon. We tried the May the Schwarzbier With You, Sea Shanty Gose, Jemmy Stout, and the Hoppy Hobbit Session IPA, all of which were tasty and drinkable.
Wrecking Bar Brewpub offers an interesting, cozy, and fun atmosphere along with great food and beer, so if you’re looking for a new place to eat or another brewery to try, we highly recommend going to Wrecking Bar Brewpub.
