Wrecking Bar Brewpub Restaurant Review: This classic late-Victorian home became reborn as a brewpub and events space, guided by Inman Park residents and home-brewers Bob Sandage and Kristine Sandage. Chef Terry Koval does special menus daily while the regular menu changes seasonally. Raw materials are naturally raised and locally sourced whenever possible, and the house-brewed beer is an ingredient in several dishes. For example, the beer cheese soup is made with Wisconsin cheddar and a house-made brew. With a full-time butcher on staff, Wrecking Bar Brewpub is able to cure its own meats and concoct unique menu items like goat sausage. Riverview Farms pasture-raised pork is the source for the house pastrami, which is brined for five days then smoked for 24 hours and served with house-made kimchi. Tuesday's special menu is always vegetarian, with some vegan-friendly dishes. For dessert, try the stout ice cream float or the Wrecking Bar, a take on the classic Crunch bar with chocolate and hazelnut crisp. There's a reasonably priced wine list as well as 10-12 beers on tap, including the hoppy Victor IPA --- a good match with the food.
