Located in a shopping center district. I was told much of the beer history of Atlanta started at this brewery and the brewer at Terrapin once worked here. Did a flight of beers that were ok to good and the server was satisfactory. Prices were fair to a little pricey. A nice stop but I probably will visit the breweries closer to downtown next time... Five Seasons does have multiple locations.

I made a afternoon out of it to see the prado area. So I had to stop at this one. Very open space as soon as you walk in and the hostess is right in front of you. The bar is somewhat on a pedestal being as it is the only thing with stairs to it. Nice seating area outside very cozy looking. Big fish tank off to the left from the center of the bar. Nice flat screens surround the bar ( to bad golf was on ) A big projection screen right in the middle. The wall behind is covered with some high end liquors.

My waitress seemed a bit grumpy, very short with words and just had the "I want out type attitude". All and all she did stay on top of refreshing my drinks.

I will say this very impressive line of tasty beers. One of the very best of brewpubs I've been too were every one of the samplings were solid. I had two samplings one of the lighter ABV which five were featured and the other a bit more expensive had a higher ABV and there were four of them. To me the stars of the show were the hopgasm absolutely amazing tasting IPA, and the chug monkey very light and crisp an kind of had that macro taste, but possible the best tasting macro I've had.

As for the food it was overpriced in my opinion. I mean $14 for a reuben,yeah it had homemade saurkraut but really nothing to it and the quality wasn't all that great. I just think you should get a bit more for the buck. I had a pretzel for an appetizer and that was well wrth it.

A good place for the family and for dad's to get there craft beer drink on. I would definetly come back if I had the time. I did put the value as a bit pricey just because the food was highly priced but the thing that matters ( the beer ) is very reasonable.

A lazy Thursday afternoon lead to a relaxing and inviting late lunch and a dive into several pints. What a way to kill time in northern Atlanta.

Not far off of the main 1-75 interstate and tucked into the back corner of seemingly newly built complex of offices and retailers, this brewpub seems to be a good stopover for trasients and suburban types alike. There seemed to be enough parking in front, but I can see how peek times can push into the commons garage nearby.

With a stand-alone building and a large silo-looking construction, the brewpub is hard to miss. There's a newness and clean, fresh feel with the approach and entrance into the building that seems cut from the same cloth of Outback Steakhouses or O'Charlies. A very suburban model. An inside open floor plan allows for tiered views as the bar sits prominantly upon a slightly raised platform with the brewing operations receeding through the glass wall behind. Sevaral televisions showed multiple sporting options with no sound, but the ambient music in the background suffice.

A quick perusing of the bar and then settling in at a hightop table nearby, a clear view of the restaurant and bar reveals bar seating for about 20-30, and table tops for about the same. Dining tables seem numberous and are set at a lower level area than from the bar. Storefront windows reaveal a large and secluded patio that seemed very popular on this particularly comfortable summer day.

Samples and pints all around reveals most of the beer offerings to be average to above average, but with the standout beers of Seven Sisters and Hopgasm. Others tried were the Munich Helles, Humdinger Hefeweizen, and Maibock. There just wasn't enough time to drink the Long Strange Tripel and the Scottish Ale that had the impression of quality as well.

A menu of hodge-podge standard American cuisine lacks identity but any non-discriminant chain restaurant goer will find something satisfying here. The cuban sandwich and beer cheese soup were fine for a late lunch, but didn't seem out of the norm at all.

The bar tender was pulling double duty, catering to a few tables and bar patrons. Though attentive enough, I didn't get the sense that we were exactly her first priority. Her recommendaiton of Hopgasm was spot on.

Our visit was relaxed and calm, but however without character or identity. I felt like I were in a standard big box restaurant, but with 6-8 house made beers of quality and stature.

Visited for the first time recently. When I walked in I was impressed immediately by the openness of the restaurant. The staff is very friendly and the manager even took time to check on me and personally told me about the house beers when deciding what to order.

The house brews that are there, that I had, were exceptional. If you're into trying new beers I suggest taking a chance with 5 Seasons Brewery. The Pilsner, IPA, and Scotch Ale are the three that I had and recommend.

For smokers, there is a room called the "cellar" that has a small bar and pool tables.

It also features a nice, roomy patio for when you want to enjoy the weather.

A large multi-faceted brewpub located just inside the perimeter on the North side of Atlanta. This is the original Five Seasons that opened in 2001; there are now 2 other locations in metro Atlanta. The facility has an outside covered biergarten, a rather upscale inside restaurant and a largish pool (billiards; not swimming) room with it's own small beer bar and dart boards. Plenty of parking: there's a large parking garage about 50M from the front door.

The main restaurant is big and airy with 3 tiers of seating wrapped around an long L-shaped under a tall ceiling. The seating here and outside is nicely spread out: no bumping into other tables while trying to get in or out of yours. Their lineup of both beers and food diverse, with about 10 beers available at any one time. E.g., last night these included Hopgasm IPA, a maibock, a Belgian dubbel, A Vienna style lager, a Scotch ale, a Helles, and a wheat beer. New beers are introduced with some frequency.

The brewing itself apparently takes place in at least 2 locations: you can see one brewing room from the front of the building as well as from the restaurant, and another is visible upstairs from the pool room and from portions of the main bar.

"Upscale" applies to the food as well as the main restaurant. Although pizza, tacos and the like are available, this restaurant offers a seasonally changing and creative menu with excellent diversity of offerings. I've made several visits here and the food has ranged from good to excellent. Service has been excellent on all but one occasion. Rated as reasonable ($$), their beer prices and some menu items border on $$$.

Unusual restaurant that can be recommended for a romantic dinner, or for beer and bar food with the guys (or gals), or for a larger gathering like an office party.

I was looking for 5 Seasons Brewing at this location and found out that they had only changed names a week before. The employees were nice and friendly. The food menu had a pretty good selection and I picked to they the fish and chips. The fish was good with a good breading, the shoe string fries were a little under cooked. They had 8 beers (one of which was a cider) on tab, but the cider keg was empty. Tey had a Porter, Amber Ale, Golder Ale, Saison, IPA, Scotch Ale and Tripel. The Amber Ale and Golden Ale were pretty main stream tasting. I would order a pint or two of the other 5 beers. The bartender (I think maybe the brewer) noticed that I must have been a beer drinker because I did not finish the Amber Ale or the Golden Ale. May go back before leaving town.

Visited my favorite place in Atlanta once again. Not disappointed! Had the luck of visiting during the most fun season of the year for beer! Their Fest beer was magnificent with the perfect finish. A great balance of hop and malt. The Kilt Lifter Scotch Ale (8.0%) was malty and strong. The Long Strangle Tripel was a golden unfiltered beer with a rich body; a sweet, bready flavor. But my favorite was the Hppgasm IPA (7.0%) Five different hops and a solid malt background. The pizza and sandwiches were good. The service was excellent and helpful (Marlo was great). If you come to Atlanta, put this in your gps.

Five Seasons Prado has been around for sometime in Atlanta. They actually have a new 5 Seasons up in Alpharetta which I like more, but the Prado is OK for what it's worth. The restaurant itself is pretty good...normal fare for what you would expect in a brew pub. The beer is what brings me there. They usually have a really nice selection of beer that rotates. Not all of them are winners, but they make enough really good beer to keep going back. The $5 beers are pretty average for around Atlanta...so not a big surprise or deterrent for me. Overall, it's worth visiting.

True gem of a brewpub on the Northside of Metro Atlanta. Dennis & Co have been a staple of the growing beer community going back to the mid 90's. You get the feeling of a warm restaurant as you enter, with glass walls on the left and right of brewing tanks and hoses. Big and airy with super tall cathedral-like ceilings. Spacious bar area, with a big ole bar and plenty of bar seating. The main seating area is comprised of low tops and booths, again with plenty of room in between. Back to the bar area...clear shot into the main brewing room. Tall glass where you can watch Brewmaster Kevin work his magic. There is even a big area to the left-side near the front, with pool tables and dart boards. The Bier Garden is open and airy, perfect for a big gathering. I went here for the 2004 Pop The Cap party, enjoying Dogfish 90 and Weyerbacher Imperial Stout on tap.
His Hopgasm IPA is tops in the city, in my opinion of course. Malty enough to counter the citrus and piney hop assault. Their lineup is always diverse, from a Steam beer to a raspberry chocolate truffle stout. On a recent visit, I had the Scotch Ale and although I am not particularly fond of the style, I found this interpretation very tasty. Two Pence Porter pleased this Porter fan, as I know Kevin brewed a delicious porter while at Sweetwater.
Beer aside, the food here is killer and worth every penny even though it may seem high. I often will order the pizza of the day, which are flat and cooked grilled. Granny Serrano is a fav of mine, as is the salmon one.
Service is warm and quick and the bartenders actually have personality and know their beer at the same time.
A must visit for anyone visiting Metro Atlanta, coming from a guy who lives 1.3 miles from Brick Store Pub.

I was here on a Wednesday at about 330pm and the place was mostly empty. A couple of people at the bar inside but I chose the courtyard to sit. A pleasant little water fountain outside adds some peaceful ambiance. The innerds are full of wood: wooden floors, ceilings, bar, booths. The bar was quite big with ample seating.

I was impressed with the selection of the house brews. They had 10 brews on tap and all were fairly interesting. The selection was as follows: IPA, Munich Helles, Vienna Lager, Farmhouse Ale, ESB, California Steam, Tripel, Wit, Wheat, and the one they were out of was a Bourbon Barrel Aged Truffale (by the descirption it looked to be a chocolate raspberry beer). I havent been to a brewpub in a while, if ever, that had that many house beers.

The only problem I saw with the whole place was that all of the parking out front was either reserved for some foot clinic or they were one hour spots only. That doesnt fly well with me. The prices were a bit steep at around $5-$6 per pint. I would certianly come back here for more of the beers.
