+ The Wrecking Bar Brew Pub
As a 20th-century Victorian-style home, a Methodist Protestant church, a dance school and most recently as the Wrecking Bar architectural antiques store, the journey to bring you an ever-changing selection of specialty beers brewed on site and craft pub food has been defined by fond memories made by notable Atlanta families. On June 19, 2011, Bob and Kristine Sandage began a new legacy, as the basement of the charismatic Victor H. Kriegshaber House was christened as the Wrecking Bar Brewpub!
Vowing to boldly go where no other brewpub has gone before, the Sandages warmly open their doors, inviting the neighborhood to enjoy this artisanal gathering spot for the community that took the support of a community to build.
