It’s about where you’ve been drinking beer lately. Rooftops. Pools. Rooftop pools.
We get it, your base isn’t going to tan itself. But at the same time, it’s getting serious out there. You need somewhere to cool off.
Allow us to suggest the basement of a 1900s Victorian mansion...
Welcome to the Wrecking Bar Brewpub, a semi-subterranean lair of off-the-grid revelry and craft beer brewed on-site, opening Sunday on the fringe of Inman Park and Little Five Points.
At the end of the day, this is a place to kick back and enjoy the fruits of your labor (if fruit was beer instead of fruit, that is). But at the same time, it took well over a year’s worth of painstakingly detailed renovations to get you where you need to be.
That’s to say, face-to-face with a fully refurbished 20th-century Victorian manse fraught with Corinthian columns and stained glass windows. So go ahead, take in the history. But then, head down to the side entrance.
Because that’s where you’ll find an ever-rotating glut of craft beer casks (stouts, Belgians, wood-aged, sours...) hidden among six separate rooms of stone-walled, low-ceilinged, covert-missioning potential. Hit the pinewood bar for some Beer & Cheese Soup, raid the patio for a King of Pops “Hopcycle” or claim a love seat in the brick-floored Coal Room Lounge and settle in with a sudsy German number.
You can also grab a very similar type of beer.
