Atlantans have remarkable dedication to lagers, sours, Trappists, tripels, quadrupels and, well, anything brewed. The Porter, a miniscule space in Little Five Points, is a popular destination for somms and bartenders after an evening of peddling Burgundy and stirring artisanal booze. There, Nick Rutherford and Molly Gunn list no fewer than 700 bottles and 30-something beers on draft, highlighting the newest on their website’s drink blog. On another night, those somms may wind down at The Bookhouse Pub, a corner space off of Ponce De Leon Avenue that Empire State South wine director Steven Grubbs describes as a ‘Twin Peaks’–themed hunting lodge.” There are comfortable booths, a healthy draft list that ranges from lambic to Founder’s Red Rye and bottles of ales hailing from Belgium and Japan.
