Is Atlanta’s Beer Scene World Class?Decatur Metro | April 3, 2010
A newish list on Gadling.com – with an undeniable American bias – recently listed the 24 “greatest cities in the world for drinking beer”. And Atlanta, of course, gets a nod, thanks in large part to the Brick Store. (Why else would I bring it up?) Here’s the blurb…
Though the American South lagged for quite some time behind the rest of the country in embracing craft beer, it’s catching up quickly. Next to Asheville, perhaps the greatest city in the South in which to enjoy beer is Georgia’s capital, Atlanta.
Two award-winning production breweries operate in the city, Atlanta Brewing Company and Sweetwater, and brewpubs and great beer bars are scattered throughout. But for a real treat? Head to Decatur, where you’ll find one of the nation’s premier beer bars, the Brick Store Pub. Here you’ll find constantly-rotating taps, a second bar dedicated to Belgian beer, an extensive bottle list, and a wonderfully eclectic, beery atmosphere.
Thanks to Skeptic for pointing this out!
