Today's Beer
A smooth American brown ale base with notes of caramel, toasted bread, and milk chocolate lays the canvas for conditioning on coffee beans. Our friends at Dark Matter Coffee in Chicago provided us with Few Rye barrel-aged coffee beans for this project. The coffee has notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, vanilla, and a balanced barrel presence which blend beautifully with the base beer. Tap Date 2/16 OG 1.055 IBU 25 ABV 5.4%
Our 2nd generation, this pale golden ale/lager hybrid associated with the city of Köln, Germany, uses the lightest German Koln & Heidelberg malts. With enough hops for balance, the result is a very light, crisp beer. Tap Date 8/30 OG 1.045 IBU 21 ABV 4.8%
Our BA Russian Imperial Stout infused with cocoa nibs, vanilla, cinnamon, two types of chilis. ABV 12.5%
Version 5.0 focuses on a heavy use of Australian Enigma, Galaxy & Simcoe hops. Notes of resin, white wine & hints of raspberry are prevalent. As the beer warms, it becomes more tropical with notes of mango and papaya. 8% ABV
Get ready for our latest batch of this summer favorite! We made a true “punch bowl” this time around, featuring Cascade, Mouteka, Lemondrop, Amarillo, and Moasaic hops. All of that juicy goodness is supported by a gentle bitter backbone, making this beer a little bit lighter version of our perennial Juice Willis. Cheers to beating the heat with fresh juice! Tap Date 7/28 OG 1.053 IBU 46 ABV 5.9%
This "Imperial Berliner Weisse" was blended with almost 200 pounds of raspberry, strawberry, and blueberry puree creating a "not quite over the top" fruited sour. And, even at close to 7.0% ABV, the smoothness is rivaled only by Barry White himself. Tap Date 6/19 OG 1.058 ABV 6.9%
Brewed as a collaboration with our long-time friend Tim Schiavone, this version is a slight riff on our classic Vivant. Featuring Weyermann Pilsner and Munich malts and Tradition and Hallertau Blanc hops straight from the Seitz hop farm in Bavaria's Hallertau region.Tap Date 4/23 OG 1.049 ABV 5.6%
There are 11 different grains and sugars in this beer, giving it the similar complexity of a Barleywine grain bill, but it only clocks in at 3.4% ABV. Very faint nuances of dark fruit, caramel, toffee, chocolate, and coffee, with just enough earthy English hops for balance; get the flavor and drink more than one. Tap Date 12/26 OG 1.035 IBU 14 ABV 3.4%
Dance for the arrival of Spring. Breath deep the green. Hear the buzzing of bees. Celebrate the end of death, greet life with open arms! Maibock is a beer for celebration and renewal. Have a sip, or a hearty draught, let its warm bready malt notes revive you. Delight in its floral and vinous hop tones. Drink and enjoy. Prost! Tap Date 5/1 OG 1.069, IBU 29, ABV 7.5%
Papillon, the French word for butterfly. Our Witbier is a light-bodied, Belgian wheat beer made with un-malted wheat, oats, and barley, to which we have added orange peel, coriander, and chamomile; the spicing regiment provides notes of bright citrus & gentle spice. Tap Date 5/2 OG 1.047 IBU 15 ABV 4.9%
Our 9th Anniversary edition hopped with Centennial, Ekuanot, and Galaxy hops. Tap Date 6/20 OG 1.062 IBU 60 ABV 6.5%
Named after the original property owner, Victor Kriegshaber, this is a West coast style IPA with big hop flavor and smooth bitterness. We have added over three pounds per barrel of Columbus, Amarillo, and Simcoe hops. Flavors of juicy citrus, grapefruit, pine, and resin. This is a balanced, bitter, and highly aromatic IPA. Tap Date 10/25 OG 1.062 IBU 80 ABV 7.0%
Feeling blue? Brighten your spirits with the latest batch of our Sour Pale Ale! We used Galaxy, Citra, and Mosaic hops this go-around, so expect strong tropical fruit flavors to compliment this beer's lightly-soured finish. Tap Date 6/19 OG 1.055 ABV 5.9%

BEER

Brewing on a 7 barrel system, Bill Arnold & Ryan Donald have developed a beer program that focuses on perfecting classic styles such as Kolsch, Pilsner, ESB, IPA, barrel aged strong beer and session styles. This classic list is balanced with more experimental styles: milkshake IPA’s, fruited gose’s and farmhouse ales, to name a few. Over the last seven years we’ve also developed a barrel aging program, aging stouts, barleywines, and scotch ales in bourbon and rum barrels to bring out the beers best characteristics, winning a Silver Medal in Barrel Aged Strong Ales at the Great American Beer Festival in 2018 for our Willett Bourbon Barrel Aged Ye Old Sprinklerhead Barleywine.

FOOD

Terry Koval has spent the last several years turning the Wrecking Bar’s menu into a diverse array of flavors, while staying rooted in pub classics. We source from local bakeries, dairies, and farms ( including our own ), and believe it’s important to support the local economy and build relationships. The menu keeps a few classics on constantly, while the rest changes to reflect the season, highlighting produce and flavors at their peak.

History

“The Victor H. Kriegshaber House is historically significant for its association with Victor Hugo Kriegshaber, who was a leader in the cultural and economic development of Atlanta during the first third of the century, and the original owner of this house. He commissioned the building to be designed by architect Willis F. Danny just before 1900 and lived there with his family until 1924.The Kriegshaber residence is a fine example of Denny’s work; he practiced only a few years in Atlanta before his early death at 31 due to pneumonia, but managed to design many of the city’s most prestigious public and private structures before 1905. Stylistically, the house is a noteworthy transitional statement combining late Victorian and eclectic details.

Kriegshaber was born in 1859 to Prussian immigrants living in Louisville, Kentucky. He did not make his home in Atlanta until 1889, when he left his civil engineer’s position with the Central of Georgia Railway to become a contractor and soon after president for forty-three years of his own building materials supply company. Nine years after his arrival in Atlanta, Kriegshaber was able to afford his elegant showplace on the periphery of Inman Park. He served in executive positions for countless businesses, civic, philanthropic, and cultural organizations. In addition to his building material supply business, Kriegshaber was the founder and first president of the Atlanta Terra Cotta Company, a director of the Atlanta Art Glass Co. and vice-president of the National Builders’ Supply Association. He was a director of the Chamber of Commerce and, in 1914, was part of the committee from the Chamber that spearheaded the new development at Lakewood for the Southeastern Fair. The Fair opened in 1916, the same year that Kriegshaber served as president of the Chamber of Commerce.

A charter member of the Rotary Club, Kriegshaber also served as director of the local council of the Boy Scouts of America, as president of the Jewish Charities and of the Jewish Educational Alliance and was director of the Hebrew Orphan’s Home. He was instrumental in establishing the city’s first public playgrounds for children and was later vice-president of the Playground Association of America. In 1905, Kriegshaber was one of the organizers of the Standard Club, serving as its first vice-president.

Kriegshaber served on the executive committee of the Atlanta Music Festival Association from its founding in 1909 until his death. The first Atlanta Music Festival, held in 1909 in the just completed Auditorium, was such a tremendous success that the Atlanta Music Festival Association inaugurated in 1910 the first of nearly twenty annual spring visits by the Metropolitan Opera to Atlanta’s Municipal Auditorium. In addition, his belief in the ability of local musicians and choristers led to the establishment of the Atlanta Philharmonic Society, of which he was president at his death in 1934.”
