Wrecking Bar Brewpub

Top choice bar in East Side

In the basement of century-old, heroically restored Victorian-style Kriegshaber House (which was a Methodist Protestant church, a dance school and architectural antiques store in its past lives), western-Carolinian-trained brewmaster Neal Engleman makes magical juicy IPAs, cedar-aged cask IPAs, hoppy sours and so much more at this 16-tap Little Five Points favorite wrapped around original stone pillaring.

Farm-to-table pub grub like the house-cured and smoked pastrami sandwich (collard kimchi, Swiss cheese and Korean garlic mayo) and epic charcuterie and cheese plates means food is taken just as seriously as suds, so there is little incentive to leave.
