Today’s Beer
It must be time for bonfires and parkas because the rauchbier is back! This seasonal favorite features beechwood-smoked barley as part of the grain bill and is fermented with a popular German lager yeast. The beer was then cold-conditioned for over one month. The result is an amber lager with a smoky nose and a crisp, balanced finish. Cheers to the change of seasons! Tap Date 11/9 OG 1.051 IBU 41 ABV 5.5%
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%
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%
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%
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, Chinook, Centennial, & Simcoe hops. This batch of Victor has a healthy addition of malted rye. The rich, bready character of the rye is a fantastic compliment to the piney, citrus and resinous hop profile. Tap Date 4/13 OG 1.062 IBU 51 ABV 7%
Kellerbier is a young unfiltered lager, as a result it retains some yeast character. In this case that yeast character is bready and a little fruity. This yeast expression works wonderfully with the pilsner and wheat malt profile. Hallertau Blanc hops contribute some delightful floral, fruity grapefruit and white wine flavor and aroma. Cellar Dweller is a tasty treat, light, easy, and quite quaffable. Cellar Dweller Kellerbier is a pat on the back and a "thank you for your hard work" to all the cellar workers in the brewing biz. Tap Date 4/6 OG 1.049, IBU 22, ABV 5.4%
Homage, definition: Special honor or respect shown publicly. Blue Ridge Pale Ale is a celebration of the classic West Coast Pale Ale, amber gold in color, with a balanced malt and hop profile. This beer is full bodied, complex, with a crisp clean finish. Notes of ruby red grapefruit, citrus zest, coriander, and light toasted biscuit. Featured hops, Cascade and Amarillo. And yes, they already called about the can. Tap Date 6/5 OG 1.053 IBU 41 ABV 5.5%
Our hazy and juicy East Coast style IPA is always refreshing and easy to drink. We rotate the hops on this beer to keep it fun and fresh. This batch is hopped with Galaxy, Azacca, Mosaic, and Motueka for a big tropical fruit hop profile. Tap Date 4/13 OG 1.062 IBU 60 ABV 6.5%
What's it got in its pockets precious? What we know for certain is that we lost our way in the dark. It's always dark here, but the water is tasty. It's jammy, like blackberry jam, and then it gives way to salt and perhaps a slight smokie note. The finish is something akin to bittersweet chocolate spread across velvet. Tap Date 2/9 OG 1.050 IBU 6 ABV 6.5%
Our house gose, soured with yogurt then salted with a blend of sea salts we've perfected with our friends over at Beautiful Briny Sea in Grant Park. The beer was then dosed with Thai and sweet basil, fermented on grapefruit juice and pulp, and aged on grapefruit zest. Tap Date 9/20 OG 1.044 IBU. 5 ABV 4.5%
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%
Our Imperial milk stout that’s rested in a High Wire distilling Jimmy Red Corn bourbon barrel. ABV 10%
Brewed with Maris Otter, Munich, dark English crystal, and a touch of Chocolate malt. ABV 5.5%
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%

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.”
