People are still finding out about Three Blind Mice. Six rotating taps - Guinness Stout, Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA, Ommengang Hennapin, Weihenstephan Vitus as of late March (3/24). Smaller bar space explains the limited number of taps but over 100 beers in bottles. Draft beers are available in half portions as well.
The restaurant has an impressive collection of German offerings including Augustiner Maximator Double Bock, Ayinger, Konig, Einbecker Schwarzbier, and Weihenstephaner. Nice selection of large format Belgians - St. Bernardus, Chimay, and Gouden Carolus Cuvee Van der Keizer Blauw among them as well as De Dolle Oerbier in 11.2 oz. Most are served in proper, brewery specific glassware.
Awesome selection of American craft beers keeps on improving - five Brooklyn selections, Sierra Nevada (4), Southern Tier (5), Anchor, Left Hand, Weyerbacher (3), Victory (4), Lagunitas, Dogfish Head, Founder's (3), and Bell's (4).
They also retail beer and wine with very fair pricing - even selling single beers with no additional breakage charge. The food is the main draw though and there is not a beer focused bar/restaurant that can match anywhere in the Atlanta area. It just got a mention in the new issue of Atlanta magazine. Come find out what all the talk is about.

I'm thrilled to have this place in my neighborhood- it's exactly what my town needed, as far as beer, food, wine and cocktails. Located in a very small strip mall, they've still tried to gussy the outside up with a somewhat small, but very nice, patio, plants, and nice fixtures. Inside is a different story. Very nice, with an area on the right with a communal table, sofas, and a small retail store. Yes, that's right- a small retail store. Mostly wine here (and a well chosen, if small selection of that), but 15-20 or so beers as well- some in bombers, and a few six packs. All craft beer, a little eclectic, but some stuff worth grabbing. I picked up a bottle of the Terrapin Hopzilla tonight. No refrigeration in this section, but a small enough selection that it shouldn't matter. A coffee station (with very good coffee) rounds out the right side of the operation.
The bar/restaurant side is the reason to come here. Excellent food, for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Lots of fresh, local ingredients, and artisanal products (Benton Farms bacon anyone? heirloom tomatoes?) and some ambitious offerings for dinner without any fussiness. The lunch prices are a bargain for the quality, the dinner prices more in keeping with the ingredients. I'd give this a five for food but for some misses right after they first opened- along with some hits. I'll reevaluate after some time has passed. They seem to be continuing to expand their beer program, as they've added a couple of more taps and a lot more bottles. I'd have to say it's a fairly eclectic beer list. Only six taps currently, and they are Anchor Steam, Guiness, Henepin, Pyramid haywire, Southern Tier Unearthly, and Vitus. The last two are more than a little surprising to find in a bar in Lilburn! 75 or so bottles, but I expect they'll add more. These are also a bit eclectic, but with a nice diversity of styles. Everything from 21st ammendment Hell or High Watermelon, Allagash Curieuix, Old Foghorn, Bell's, Brooklyn, DFH, Highland, Southhampton and Southern Tier bombers, a couple of Belgians, and a few English Ales to a few of the usual BMCs. Certainly the vast preponderance are craft beers. Very comfortable place with a combination of an industrial and farmhouse motifs. I wouldn't call this a destination spot for beer alone, but it's a unique sort of place and the food is worth travelling for. It's located right near the borders of Lilburn, Snellville, and Lawrenceville, and if you are local to any of those areas its a must. By far the most pleasant spot in the area for a nice brew- or great glass wine, or excellent cocktail, cup of coffee, or meal. recommended highly for locals, and worth a look even if not in the 'hood.
