Today's Beer

Horchata Matata Blonde Ale
It means “No worries, for the rest of your days”. Brewed with malted barley and toasted rice, this is a savory, sessionable blonde inspired by the Mexican rice and almond milk drink. A generous amount of lactose was added to the boil to give the impression of creaminess, with just enough hops to balance. After fermentation, it was conditioned on vanilla beans and cinnamon bark, to impart the traditional horchata flavorings and overlay unique layers on the quenching base beer. Tap Date 8/8 OG 1.047 IBU 15 ABV 4.8%
Juice Willis: Humulus Looper IPA
Hop into the future with our newest rendition of our Juice Willis. Astronomically hopped with a blend of Australian Galaxy, Azzaca, and Simcoe. Let your mind travel through time on this piney, tangerine dream wave. Tap Date 8/30 OG 1.060 IBU 50 ABV 6.5%
Breaking Bob Kolsch
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%
Leder Brosen Festbier
Break out the steins, it's the most wonderful time of the year! We brewed this German style Festbier in celebration of the (hopeful) coming of the cooler autumn weather. Brewed with 100% German heirloom barley, German hops, and our house lager strain. This beer is full of malty goodness, yet not too filling, to maintain its crisp drinkability. Prost, bro! Tap Date 9/5 OG 1.054 IBU 25 ABV 5.8%
Lil’ 5 Life Lager
Our take on an American classic style, Lil’ 5 Life is light & refreshing with a crisp body and dry finish. A beer that goes down smooth due to the generous addition of toasted rice & flaked corn, also a great session beer to enjoy in the pub! ABV 4.8%
Monk Snack Belgian Pale Ale
We made Monk Snack as a nod to the beers made by Trappist Monks for personal consumption within the monastery walls. Contrary to the beers made for market, these beers are pale, low-alcohol, and brewed with a healthy amount of hops. This beer is brewed with a blend of European malt and hops, and fermented with one of our favorite Belgian yeast. To compliment, we dry-hopped this beer with a touch of Nelson Sauvin and Motueka to give it a fruity complexity. Tap Date 8/23 OG 1.042 IBU 31 ABV 4.7%
Steam Bath Hefeweizen
A hazy yellow Bavarian Hefeweizen brewed with a blend of German Wheat and Pilsner malts. A traditional German Weizen yeast fermentation produces a delicate balance of clove, bubblegum, vanilla, and banana nuances. Enjoy this refreshing summer ale now! Tap Date 8/5 O.G. 1.044 IBU 15 ABV 4.8%
Vivant Pilsner
We are excited to present you our newest lager beer. This is a beer that classic style that tests a brewery's process and acumen. A simple grist of German Pilsner malt lays a crisp, grainy foundation for the hops and fermentation profile to shine. Hopped assertively with New Zealand Pacifica and a bit of Czech Saaz. This beer has a floral nose with notes of freshly cut grass, peppercorn, and subtle hints of citrus. Tap Date 9/17 OG 1.051 IBU 45 ABV 5.5%
Victor IPA
Victor Victor Victor Victor Victor
Say What You Need to Saison
This Saison is packed with flavor, while remaining supremely sessionable. A blended Saison yeast culture provides notes of citrus,spice, and subtle melon character with a dry finish. This beer was brewed with North Carolina and Georgia grown Pilsner, Pale, Malted Oat, and Wheat. We hopped this beer extensively with Mandarina Bavaria for an added citrus/herbal kick. Enjoy! O.G.-1.041 IBU-30 ABV-5.5%


Brewing on a 7 barrel system, Neal Engleman has 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.


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.


Housed in a late Victorian building that was once a home, a church, a dance studio, and an architectural salvage store, the Wrecking Bar Brewpub has worked to become a cornerstone of the neighborhood. With a focus on comfortable atmosphere, clean and exciting locally sourced food, an extensive bar program, and excellent beer crafted in house, the goal is to maintain a restaurant that has has something for everyone. Come grab a beer at the bar, or meet up with family and friends for dinner.

“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.”
