Today's Beer
Brewed in collaboration with our good friends at Hopstix, Kanabo was inspired by one of our favorite styles, West Coast IPA. This beer is hop forward, with a light crisp malt finish. Featured hops are Simcoe, Cascade, Centennial, and El Dorado. Tap Date 11/23 OG 16.4 P ABV 8.3%
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%
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%
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%
Break out the steins, it's the most wonderful time of the year! We brewed this German style Festbier in celebration of the arrival of the cooler autumn weather. Brewed with 100% German barley, hops from Seitz farm in Bavaria, and our house lager strain. This beer is full of malty goodness, yet not too filling, to maintain its crisp drinkability. Prost! Tap Date 9/18 OG 1.058 IBU 28.8 ABV 5.8%
This beer was designed with chilly seasonal weather in mind. Have no doubt this beer is malt forward with all the delightful character of hearty warm bread, honey, and a certain earthy spice that only rye can claim. Complimented by floral and herbal hop notes, Autumnal Gradient will quench your thirst while warming body and soul. Drink and be refreshed, drink and be warm. Prost! Tap date 10/5 OG 1.062 IBU 28 ABV 5.8%
There are 11 different grains and sugars in this beer, giving it the similar complexity of a Barleywine grain bill, but it only clocks in at 3.4% ABV. Very faint nuances of dark fruit, caramel, toffee, chocolate, and coffee, with just enough earthy English hops for balance; get the flavor and drink more than one. OG 1.035 IBU 14 ABV 3.4%
Here is a beer you don't see very often, though once quite popular in London in the late 19th century. Because of Wrecking Bar's relative size, on the smaller side, we're afforded the opportunity to brew a wide variety of styles. Thus, we offer you Chops' English Porter, a beer that strikes a balance between sweet brown ale and chocolatey porter. We like how well it goes with fall weather, and we think you will too. Cheers! Tap Date 11/2 OG 1.042 IBU 20 ABV 4.2%
Blast from the beer past with this fresh AF double IPA, taking just two weeks (or one Fortnight) from grain to glass! The simple Pilsner and wheat grain bill let the hops shine. Mosaic, Simcoe, and Citra hops stand strong in aroma and flavor. This beer drinks easier than it rightfully should.Tap Date 10/22 OG 16.2P IBU 70 ABV 8.3%
Our take on a traditional Vienna-Style lager. Brewed with a blend of Vienna, Munich, Pilsner, and CaraAmber malts, expect a toasty and dry lager base with a subtle caramel finish. A smooth noble hop bitterness provides contrast to the malt base. A beer meant to be enjoyed at any occasion. Easy enough for new beer drinkers, yet complex enough to please every palate. Tap date 11/20 OG 1.054 IBU 30 ABV 5.6%
Let's enjoy this Juice Willis: Nakatomi Christmas Party, brewed just for this party. I hear that it's generously hopped with Pacific Jade, Nelson Sauvin, Citra, and Mosaic hops. This is going to be a BLAST! Tap Date 11/23 1.062 IBU 60 ABV 6.5% Tap Date 12/8 1.062 IBU 60 ABV 6.5%
Two yeasts strains working in harmony. Simple, dry, bitter, refreshing. Tap Date 9/24 OG 1.043 IBU 40 ABV 5.5%
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%
We have taken our base Sea Shanty Gose and conditioned it atop 84 pounds of organic prickly pear puree. The result is a bright and aromatic pop from the fruit, as well as an electric pink hue. The balanced acidity and salinity of the base Gose play well with the heavy fruiting. Enjoy! Tap Date 8/25 OG 1.052 IBU 5 ABV 5.4%

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.”
