Porter Brew & Que Brewery, Dunwoody’s first brewery, now open

Barbecue spot will brew its own beer and feature more than 100 kinds of bourbon

Dunwoody officially has a new brewery.

Porter Brew & Que Brewery opened its doors last night in the Dunwoody Village development. The barbecue eatery and brewpub comes from Allen Porter, who also owns and is the brewmaster for Porter Pizza & Brewery, which opened in Sandy Springs last year. Porter, whose father Winston, is an owner of STATS in downtown Atlanta, will also serve as Brew and Que’s brewmaster.

The restaurant’s menu features a variety of starters including kickin’ deviled eggs and pimento cheese fritters; salads and stews; sandwiches including meatloaf, “wicked” brisket, smoked bologna and a smoked portabello muschroom; and plates with options such as pulled pork, brisket, St. Louis ribs and smoked chicken. Side choices include baked beans, three cheese mac, collard greens and bacon ranch potato salad.

The menu was designed by Carlos Washington, who serves as general manager for Porter Pizza and Brew & Que and previously served as a pitmaster at Grand Champion BBQ. 

On the drink side, Porter Brew & Que will serve 10 house-brewed beers including an IPA, a cream ale and a pale ale and will also offer a selection of wine and more than 100 kinds of bourbon. 

The restaurant will be open for dinner only starting at 5 p.m. to start, with lunch and brunch as well as catering to be added eventually.
