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.
