Today's Beer
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. A healthy addition of Czech Saaz hops rounds out this thirst-quenching concoction designed to help you beat the heat! Tap Date 11.16 OG 1.049 IBU 20 ABV 5.1%
Our milk stout brewed with a blend of Maris Otter, multiple specialty malts, and lactose sugar imparts aromas of milk chocolate and dark toffee.
Hey, bro! Hope you like raspberry and lime, because we're gonna give it to ya! The imperial version of one our favorite kettle sours, this behemoth features over 300 pounds of fresh raspberry puree. Add to that a hefty dosing of vanilla and tons of lime peel and you've got one dangerously tasty concoction. Watch out though: At over 8% ABV, it'll sneak up on ya! Tap Date 2/18 OG 1.068 IBU 10 ABV 8.5%
This English-style Pale Ale was created to be full flavored, yet sessionable. Brewed with Maris Otter, Munich, dark English crystal, and a touch of Chocolate malt, there are layers of malt flavor providing a perfect canvas for oak aging. Underlying notes of toasted malt, toffee, and caramel intertwine with medium toast American oak. Warm vanilla overtones and soft tannins from the oak provide a nuanced complexity. Tap Date 10/12 OG 1.055 IBU 30 ABV 5.5%
4th place judge’s choice winner at the 2018 WB Strong Beer Fest and the big brother to our Altlanta Dusseldorf-style Altbier. Maltlanta is a Sticke Altbier, brewed to be larger and grander in every way. Rich malt aroma of toffee and biscuit are balanced by the light herbal hop nose coming from the glass. In typical Altbier fashion, the beer is notable for big malt notes of caramel and shortbread, while finishing dry for such a big beer. Tap Date 11/7 OG 1.080 IBU 50 ABV 9.3%
Fresh drop of Jemmy Dean. This batch with J Martinez Co's Kenya AA Miricho Estate, mild acidity with notes of cocoa and dry red wine, delicate and round
Brewed with English pale, spicy rye malt, and several carefully selected roasted grains from Germany, this robust ale has a subtle roasted chocolate undertone paired with a bold citrusy hop flavor and aroma. We hopped this beer with extensive amounts of American aroma hops, then ran the wort through a mountain of Citra -cone hops in our hop-back prior to fermentation. We finished this mammoth IPA with a double dry hop with Australian Galaxy Hops. Our former brewer, Neal, said, “I can’t quit this beer, but this job, yes.” Tap Date 2/1 18.5°P IBU off the charts ABV 8%
Our latest batch of Juice Willis is hopped with Citra, then dry hopped with Waimea with a touch of Citra & Mosaic. Grapefruit citrus flavors with tropical fruit sweetness.
As Double IPAs go Big Slurp is a classic. A substantial malt backbone hefts the weight of 104 IBUs, but manages to pull off the trick with balanced grace. Hopped with Chinook, Centennial, Eureka, and Mosaic this beer is grounded with grapefruit and resin, but pops with fruit and melon notes. All at once hoppy and malty this beer is a celebration of balance. Cheers! Tap Date 11/5 OG 1.080 IBU 104 ABV 8.5%
Our 3rd 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.
Dark beer season has begun! This robust porter was brewed with a hefty amount of Chocolate Malt and Beechwood Smoked Malt to give you a true smoked beer delight. Up front, the beer has a nice sweet chocolate and toffee malt character that finishes dry and smokey. Tastes like Fall in a glass.

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. 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.”
