Buckhead’s honky-tonk fantasy puts equal and abundant efforts into beer, wine, and spirits (sixty bourbons by the glass!). To our tastes, though, suds best match the kitchen’s red-blooded bravura. Eleven beers on tap and fifty in the bottle cover the gamut of styles, but gravitate to potent Belgians alongside the likes of smoked rabbit sausage or wood oven–roasted hanger steak with fries.
Drink This: Duchesse De Bourgogne, a sour red ale that can at first hit the nose with a vinegary jolt but stands up to brawny flavors.
