    Shrimp on a pizza sounds strange but the Mediterranean pizza tasted great. Pairs well w IMOS stout.

    Small, but really good, beer list. 6 beers on tap, all brewed on site. Tonight's list included an IPA, rye pale ale, dunkel, doppelbock, red, and black IPA. Worth coming for.

    Diverse bottle selection, but try the house brewed lagers. Especially the Helles & Doppelbock.

    I'm wary of anywhere that tries to upsell their menu. The IPA is good but generic. This is one of those places that feels like they care more about selling expensive steaks than the craft of beer.

    Def go with the ribs. They're a little dry and overdone to my standards but surprisingly good quality and flavor for Atlanta and a brewery with good beers. Nice smokey flavor without too much sauce

    Brew Master John Roberts loves beer, and loves for you to try his beer. We say you should head over and give the Hopsplosion a whirl. And then maybe the Max Red.
