Nick is keeping things HOT at The Porter!

Thanks for Bob Townsend for the great article about house made hot sauce!


Culture Trip’s Atlanta’s Top 10 Cultural Bars!

Check it out! We are on the list!


Date Spot?!?

Look we got listed as one of the 9 best date spots in Atlanta by Zumper!

We do get a lot of tinder dates at The Porter, but we have also had some great first dates that have ended up as marriages! That’s our favorite kind of love story, one with beer in it!

Beer Drinking Season is Here!

Truly there is no off season for beer, but when those cooler nights that hint at fall start then folks start to feel the siren’s call of beer. Maybe it’s because there are so many delicious fall beers!

First let’s talk Pumpkin. Weyerbacher Pumpkin is my favorite, but I know lots of people think Southern Tier’s Pumpking is the jam. Dogfish Head Punkin, Terrapin’s Pumpkinfest, there are so many good ones, it just depends what you want, lots of spice? Buttery like pumpkin pie? High alcohol or easy drinking?

Then there’s Oktoberfest, the ancient German fall festival that has been absconded by frat boys. I personally like German Doppelbocks better than Oktoberfest Biers, but they have their place for drinking in the sun as brown leaves blow past.

And before you know it, it’s stout season! Old Rasputian always calls my name, but Cherry Street’s Coconut Porter has been blowing me nutty coconut kisses!


One of the best brunches in ATL

The bestest part of the Porter’s brunch (besides the food and breakfast beers) is that’s there is almost never a wait!

7th Anniversary!

Whoo Hoo!

We can’t believe we made it seven years! It seems like yesterday we opened with a bunch of keg boxes and buffalo quail wings on the menu. What? I know, it was a crazy time.

Every year we try to get a little bit better. This year we started making our own burger buns, brioche, naan and pretzels!

We started cleaning our own beer lines a while ago, but this year we got serious and stopped letting anyone else do it!

But it isn’t always about change, we still have four fabulous original employees! Along with many more that have been more more than 5 years! And man do we love that.

The anniversary bash is Saturday, September 12th. We will have an epic draft list for opening at 11am. The first 100 guests get a great gift! So come early and plan to stay late!

This year we will also feature an Oatmeal Beer Brunch on the 13th after the big party. Tons of Oatmeal and brunch appropriate beers (Donut Break, anyone?)
