Opening a bar—and keeping it in business—takes a lot more than you think. We spoke with proprietors of Porter Beer Bar, Georgia Beer Garden, and Lean Draft House about what it takes to not lose your sanity and shirt in the process.
The (Pint) Glass Ceiling: Sarah Green is Georgia’s only female full-time professional brewer—for now
Of the estimated 100 full-time brewers at Georgia’s 47 craft breweries, Sarah Green, of SweetWater Brewing Company, is the only woman.
The Porter's Molly Gunn discusses beer trends, pinball, and her favorite hangover cure.
This might come as news to novice beer drinkers, but it’s true. Beer, like wine, has the ability to age gracefully, developing deep flavor notes and complex aromas far beyond what’s initially bottled. I spoke with Molly Gunn, co-owner of The Porter Beer Bar and purveyor of their extensive vintage beer list housed in a custom-made cellar, about starting up a personal collection.
Delia’s Chicken Sausage Stand—the late-night spot by Delia Champion (of Flying Biscuit fame) and Molly Gunn (of the Porter Beer Bar) on Moreland Avenue in 2011—is expanding to the Westside. Champion says the new location, 881 Marietta Street, may open as soon as December.
ATL Food Chatter: March 28, 2011 (To receive the Chatter and other culinary tidbits directly in your inbox, sign up for our weekly dining newsletter)Delia’s Chicken Sausage Stand, the East Atlanta Ormewood Park brainchild of two local culinary stars, has been open for less than a month and already is already creating a lot of buzz. Molly Gunn—who co-owns Little Five Point’s Porter Beer Bar with her husband and fellow Seeger’s alum, Nick Rutherford—and Delia Champion, the founder and former owner of the Flying Biscuit Cafe have created a charmingly kitschy, quick-serve concept based upon Champion’s famous sausage recipe. The cornerstone of the menu is the “slinger,” sausage sandwiches with a whirligig of toppings on H&F Bread Co. buns that are available late into the night.
There are more than ninety-nine bottles of beer on the wall behind the bar at The Porter (I counted). There are tap handles by the dozen. The bar could overwhelm even the most dedicated beer drinker with the depth and breadth of its inventory. But instead of just playing a numbers game, the young owners display a curatorial finesse. Better yet, without gloating about running a “gastropub,” they serve pretty remarkable casual food to go along with the lagers, pilsners, Belgian whites, and, of course, their favorite porters.
