Today's Beer
We took our beloved base for all of the Juice Willis IPAs, and brewed it with lactose, vanilla beans, and an enormous amount of strawberries, which all combine to emulate flavors of a strawberry milkshake. A huge hopping of Citra and Mosaic hops provide a complementary citrus and berry hop profile to work with the base treatment. Tap Date 6/15 13.8°P IBU 60 ABV 6.7%
Its 2009. Citra is the newest hop. Dogfish 60 Minute IPA is the craziest IPA ever brewed. Lactose Brewers are in middle school. Life is great. Enjoy this incredible blast from the past West Coast IPA! Bursting with notes of citrus, pine, and dank mango supported by a gooey malt presence that helps showcase this wonderful hop. Our newest IPA is sure to please that bitter beer sensation that has seemingly vanished over the past few years. Tap Date 5/11 15°P ABV 6.2%
A delicious Belgian Blonde Ale brewed with Belgian candy sugar to make this beer light and refreshing. Belgian yeast imparts a combination of delicate fruit esters and subtle spicy notes that are carried throughout the palate. Thanks to heavy use of German Noble hops, this beer is surprisingly dry and hoppy yet balanced to bring you a very drinkable Belgian beer. Tap Date 4/22 12°P ABV 5.4%
A traditional Munich Helles brewed with 100% Weyerman malts. This delicious lager has a subtle sweetness to it that is accompanied by a predominate malty flavor that exhibits toasted, bread-like characteristics. Hallertau Mittlefruh, Halleratua Hersbrucker, Tettnanger hops all play a small role in balancing this quaffable German Lager delight! Prost!. Tap Date 6/15 9.7 °P IBU 25 ABV 4.8%
For those that want a beer with complex malt flavors, without the extra roastiness of a stout, our Oatmeal Porter is your beer. This Porter contains prominent notes of chocolate, biscuits, and dark fruit and is smoothed out by a big portion of flaked oats, with just enough English hops to balance. Tap Date 1/10 OG 1.056 IBU 30 ABV 5.2%
Rusty is a Pale Wheat Lager brewed with equal parts German wheat malt and German pilsner malt.

Inspired by the Dry Irish Stouts of the Emerald Isle, Seamus is dry, roasty, with a smooth velvety body. Notes of biscuit, roast, and bittersweet chocolate. Look for this beer on nitro soon. Slainte! Tap Date 3/10 OG 1.045 IBU 28 ABV 4.8%
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 5/25 OG 1.039 IBU 35 ABV 3.9%
A crisp and refreshing German-Style Pilsner brewed with rice. This light bodied and easy drinking pilsner is hopped with a new German hop variety called Diamant.

Heavy use of Australian Galaxy hops is used to make the Anniversary Double IPA. Prominent notes of resin, white wine, and hints of raspberry are prevalent. The hop bill with Galaxy and Strata to take the beer over the top. Tap Date 6/17 15.7°P IBU 80 ABV 8%
The "beautiful house" is back! This beer features a combination of Pilsner and Heritage malts as well as Malted Corn from Riverbend Malt in NC, providing notes of toasted bread, soft caramel, and a subtle graininess.

This is a Classic Pale Ale using English pale malted barley, but with an interesting Southern Hemisphere twist. The sole hop used is New Zealand’s Nelson Sauvin, which flavor and aroma of gooseberry, Sauvignon Blanc wine and tropical fruits.

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%

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

Our new Executive Chef, Mikey Staniewicz is bringing fresh farm-to-table flavors, while staying rooted in pub classics.

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.”
