German national Wolfgang Hartert aspires to share the rich culinary heritage of his country with Americans at his co-owned restaurant Der Biergarten. The quintessential Bavarian establishment with an ambiance to match transports you to an outdoor beer garden in Munich. Catch live European football on the flat-screen TVs or enjoy a game of Fussball on the side. The menu features traditional classics like schnitzel, schweinshaxe, bratwurst and an array of sausages. The brews on offer represent drafts from Belgium, Ireland and England, and of course Germany, for an authentic taste of German culture.
This newly reincarnated Grant Park pub (formerly The Standard) is named for St. Augustine of Hippo who as a young man once said, God grant me chastity and temperance, but not just yet. In keeping with the happy- go-lucky nature of the famed saint, Young Augustine’s offers 27 beers on tap. Even the most discriminating beer snob will feel right at home here. The eclectic menu offers a variety of snacks, plates and not snacks at all. Favorites include the smoked wings, duck fries, short rib grilled cheese and pork vindaloo. The pub has plenty of outdoor dining space and two bocce ball courts - perfect for late night revelry.

The Porter in Little Five Points is a small restaurant that does everything big. Burgers are served on over-sized plates heaped with garlic-and-cheese fries, and the beer selection is even more sizable. For extra style, each draft beer is served in its signature glass. The Porter doesn't rely on style alone: they emphasize quality beer paired with quality food. The restaurant looks small from the outside, but the long bar and back room with tables provides plenty of space for hungry (and thirsty) diners.
Relocating from Colorado to Atlanta in 1997, Sweetwater Brewery has brought a western flavor to the burgeoning Georgia microbrewery scene. As many as six different kinds of beer are brewed under the Sweetwater label at any given time, depending on the season and the progress of new recipes. The company's impressive brewing and bottling facility also offers tours. While most people enjoy the interesting and informative tour, the most popular stop is the last, where guests are invited to partake of a sampling of recent batches.
