This brewpub gives me hopes for good brewpubs in Atlanta. Until now the only decent brewpub I could find was 5 Seasons which suffers from the fear of putting too much flavor into their beer. Buckhead Brewery is not afraid of taste. Even their light beer is surprisingly flavorful. The decor is that of a mountain hunting lodge like something you'd see in the Rockies or Alaska. It's very open an airy and they use the reddish wood and green palate that I'm a big fan of. The food is excellent and game (although farm-raised) is big on the menu like venison, quail and bison. If you aren't into eating bambi (I personally find both him and his mom quite tasty) there's the typical beef chicken and seafood lineup. The service is very good (both 5 Seasons and Buckhead have excellent waiters). Price may be a little steep for some with limited income (like me) but with sandwhich/burger meals starting at $6 and entrees running from $11-$20 (with the exception of the $30+ bison tenderloin) the prices seem typical of decent restaurants in Atlanta. This is a must-visit brewpub if you're ever in Atlanta.

The building shaped like a mountain lodge on the outside. Inside the theme is carried out very well, with tall slanted ceilings, exposed wood trusses, and walls made out of polished wood panels. In the center of the dining area is a large round fireplace with a roaring fire going. On the wall there are faux animal head trophy's. I think this is a handsome and well themed brewpub. They also seem to like to advertise the fact that the beer is brewed on the premises with several fermenters active near the entrance.
The sever we had was quite knowledgeable about the differences between the styles they carried. The service was good and accurate, but a bit on the slow side.
They had five beers on tap at the time I visited. The selection was very conservative, and not very varied. The server said that they had 72 recipes, so maybe the selection is better at another time. The quality of the two beers I had was quite good, and they were served at a bit cooler than proper temperature. The food selection was also nice, and quite varied, with seafood, steak, poultry, and game meat dishes on the menu.
Overall, I was pleasantly surprised with this place. If you are in Alpharetta it is well worth a visit.
