Johnnie MacCracken’s Celtic Firehouse Pub


Marietta scores the metro area’s most spirited Celtic pub, a smoky, gritty hideout that serves righteous plates of bangers and mash along with fifty beers on tap and 125 more by the bottle. Owner Gary Leake has turned the space next to the pub into a tasting room for Georgia-brewed beers.

Drink This: Cliche though it may be, savor a pint of Guinness: Leake traveled to Ireland to learn the art of the perfect pour.
