Today's Beer

Seek & Destroy Oud Bruin
Mixed fermentation Oude Bruin style brown ale fermented and matured for 12 months in French oak barrels. Lightly sour, notes of oak, fig, and dried apricot, and slightly phenolic from the Belgian yeast. ABV 6.5%
Heaven Hill Barrel Aged Ton of Brix Old Ale
Old Ale, also known as "Stock Ale," is a style that falls somewhere in between a strong English Bitter and English Barleywine. ABV 9%
Oak-Aged Vivant Pilsner
In pursuit of taking one of our favorite beers even further, we took Vivant Pilsner and left this version unfiltered. You'll notice a bit more yeast character, leaving dough-like bready notes and a round mouthfeel. During the conditioning of this beer, we introduced the batch to medium toast French oak for a complementary tannic structure. Gentle notes of toffee, vanilla, hazelnut, and toasted oak add a unique complexity to our house Pilsner. Enjoy! Tap Date 6/5 OG 1.051 IBU 45 ABV 5.5%
Double Rainbros Raspberry Sherbet Ale
Hey bros... we hope you like raspberry and lime! We took one of our favorite kettle-sours and amped it up for our 8th Anniversary celebration. Fermented on over more than double the volume of raspberries. The added fruit boosts the ABV to eight percent...perfect for our anniversary. After fermentation, we conditioned the beer on lime peel and vanilla beans. Come and get you some. Tap Date 6/11 OG 1.070 IBU 10 ABV 8%
Willett Bourbon Barrel Aged Siberius Maximus Russian Imperial Stout No.11
A well-rounded Russian Imperial Stout with notes of chocolate, dark fruit, smooth oak and bourbon notes from extended aging in barrels. ABV 12.7%
Say Peaches
We know what you’ve been needing to saison, and it’s that you need more peaches. Well you’re in luck, because we are serving 18lbs. of GA peaches per barrel in this Say What You Need to Saison 2.0. If you still have more to say after having this beer you can tell us at GA Peach Fest, things are bound to get juicy!
O.G. English Bitter
English Bitter is often overlooked as a style in modern craft beer circles. As such, we decided to brew one as it is a quintessential session beer. Light amber in color, ours has a unique balance of caramel and toasty malt, esters reminiscent of orchard fruit, and a firm hop bitterness. Being true to style, we are serving this beer at a lower level of carbonation to make it as quaffable as possible Tap Date 5/18 OG 1.039 IBU 35 ABV 3.9%
Technological Ripeness IIPA v4
We are thrilled to share our newest Double IPA with.070 IBU 10 ABV 8% you all. This version focuses on a heavy use of Australian Enigma hops. We were lucky enough to get our hands on some of these highly sought after hops. Prominent notes of resin, white wine, and hints of raspberry are prevalent. As the beer warms, it becomes more tropical with notes of mango and papaya. We rounded out the hop bill with a bit of Citra hop pellets and Amarillo & Simcoe lupulin to take the beer over the top. Enjoy Fresh! Tap Date 6/12 OG 1.070 IBU 50 ABV 8%
Juice Willis Beers of the Sun IPA
If you don’t know this beer by now you have been sleeping under a rock. For our 8th Anniversary we chose some of our favorite hops: Nelson, Galaxy, and Simcoe . . . nuff said, enjoy! Tap Date 6/13 OG 1.060 IBU 50 ABV 6.5%
Heaven Hill Barrel Aged Choco Mountain Imperial Breakfast Stout
Our Imperial Breakfast Stout aged for 4 months in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels. Notes of maple, vanilla and a subtle char all blend together perfectly. ABV 9%
Where Have All The Cloudboiz Gone IPA v2
Our newest IPA was brewed with Pilsner, loads of Spelt, Oats, and a touch of lactose sugar. Obviously, you should expect a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. The aroma is incredibly vibrant with notes of mango, passionfruit, tangelo, and a kiss of pine. Hopped assertively with Citra, Galaxy, and Simcoe hops at nearly 4.5 pounds per barrel of beer. Tap Date 5/29 OG 1.060 IBU 50 ABV 6.3%
ALTlanta Altbier
An ale/lager hybrid that is between amber and brown in color, this beer is of the Northern German Altbier style. There is a nice amount of biscuit, toffee, and caramel in the malt aroma and flavor, noticeable at the forefront and fades to a dry finish: a nice lingering, but not strong bitterness. ABV 5.3%
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%
Buds Lightyear Dry-Hopped Berliner Weisse
Wheat and Pilsner malts form the base of a very quenching and sessionable tart beer. Soured with lactobacillus bacteria in our brew kettle, we dry hopped this beer with one pound of Galaxy hops per barrel. Aromas of candied peaches and citrus cut beautifully against the soft character of the base beer, creating a wonderful pairing of hops, and quenching tartness. Let these hops take you to infinity and beyond! Tap Date 5/1 OG 1.042 IBU 10 ABV 4.5%
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%
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%
Kviek on a Leash Barrel-Fermented Barleywine
Oat & honey barleywine barrel fermented with Horindal Kviek yeast. ABV 5.2%

BEER

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.

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.”
