Where to Drink Beer Cocktails in Atlanta Right Now

View as Map

The U.S. is in the midst of both a craft beer movement and a cocktail renaissance right now, so mixing the two drinks together in a glass is a logical next step. Far beyond the Micheladas and the dropping-a-shot-of-whiskey-into-a-pint-glass of your college days, Atlanta bartenders are delving into deep exploration of the beer cocktail, and here are ten of the city's best. While it may seem sacrilege to the cocktail or beer purist, we prefer to look at the juxtaposition as an evolution.
