Two Atlanta-area bars receive major distinction

Two Atlanta bars recently received a big honor from a website that rates the best places in the world to have a drink.

Decatur’s Brick Store Pub and The Porter Beer Bar in Little Five Points were among RateBeer’s “Top Places To Have A Beer In The World” for 2014, according to the website’s release in late January.

The pair is among just five bars in the United States that were given the honor. The list is comprised of bars from all over the world.

RateBeer said its list was “a summary of the very best beer retailers in the world as judged by the worldwide beer enthusiasts at RateBeer and calculated from their many reviews.”

It’s a nice honor to see these two legendary Atlanta bars make the cut, and you’ll be hard-pressed to hear a bad thing about either from beer enthusiasts around the city.

Sweetwater Brewing Company also received honors from RateBeer; the brewery was named one of the 100 best in the world for 2014.
