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%
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%
A dopplebock is a bigger and stronger version of the lower-gravity German-style bock beers. A very rich and complex malt profile with flavors of burnt sugar, toasted bread, and hints of dark fruit and raisins. We brewed ours on the lighter ABV side to help ensure drinkability without being too cloyingly sweet and boozy. Expect a smooth and warming malt flavor with that finishes clean and refreshing! Perfect for the cold weather that is rite around the corner.
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%
This decadent brown porter contains flavors of light caramel and graham crackers, with dominant notes of smooth sweet cocoa derived from a hefty use of flaked oats and chocolate malt. Delicate American Willamette hops round out this delicious dark beer. In a world of complete chaos, live your best savage life! Tap date 11/4 12.8°P IBU 30 ABV 5.0-%
Brewed with 666lb of malt, this is one hell of a glass of beer! We boiled this beer for 3 hours with the addition of 20 pounds of molasses to achieve a very smooth and pleasant mid palate beer that finishes rich and malty yet not overtly sweet. Moderately hopped to help balance the large complex malt flavors of gooey caramel, burnt sugar, molasses, and dark fruit. A strong beer drinkers must try!! Tap Date 1/19 25°P IBU 38 ABV 10.5%
This kettle soured ale was brewed with lactose sugar, vanilla beans, cinnamon bark, and over 200 pounds of both sweet and tart cherries. These ingredients combine to emulate flavors of a fresh cherry pie. Notes of pie crust, juicy cherries, and a balanced tartness make for savory and refreshing treat. Tap date 12/27 OG 1.052 IBU 12 ABV 5.7%
This new batch of Juice Willis is hopped with Ekuanot & Ekuanot INCOGNITO then dry hopped with Ekuanot & a touch more Ekuanot. We utilized biotransformation technique in the brewing process to fully showcase the hop aromas and flavors. Expect intense citrus and fruit flavors including melon, papaya and lime, along with green pepper. Tap Date 1/16 13.6°P IBU 60 ABV 6.5%
With six different grains used in the brewing process, this is one of the more rich and complex stouts out there. Several different roasted barleys, oats and caramelized grains yield hints of shortbread, toffee, chocolate and a roast espresso finish. Tap Date 3/14 OG 1.067 IBU 65 ABV 6.9%
We brewed this classic German pilsner with a slight modern twist: Crystal Hops. This hop was released back in 1983 and is identified as an American “noble” hop. Bred from German Hallertau, Cascade, and Brewers Gold; this hop expresses delightful notes of citrus and stone fruit with soft woody and herbal highlights. Tap date 1/18 12.6°P IBU 41 ABV 4.9%
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%
This spiced Wheat Bock was brewed with orange peel, ginger, and cinnamon. We used dark crystal and chocolate malts to help balance and enrich the malt flavor of this wonderful seasonal offering. Expect a rich and complex malt flavor that will warm your bones! If not, you can use these extra gloves; our hands are getting kinda sweaty! Inspired by Samuel Adams Winter Lager. Tap date 12/14 14°P IBU 26 ABV 5.9%

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.”
