What a nice place. This place is really big and very nice for a brew pub. It is located right next to Hop City so that makes it a great stop if you are in the area getting some beers. We stopped in after we made a little beer run and had a couple samples of their beers. I had the coffee stout which was very good and I enjoyed it. Their other regular beers were not great in my opinion but the two seasonal "high octane" beers were great both belgian style ales with great flavors. If I go back I will probably stick to their specialty beers. We didn't eat there but it did look like a very nice restaurant and seemed like it would be a great place to have dinner. The bartender was very nice and tried to answer our questions as best she could but she did go ask the brewer about a couple things, which I prefer other than bartenders I've had elsewhere that would just make things up.
Overall a nice place and would definitely recommend stopping when making a beer run at Hop City.

Been here a two times, first time i went there they closed early even if it wasn't time yet (as the day was slow), so i was given a couple of minutes to order before they closed the kitchen and had to eat my food and beer as soon as possible as they started turning chairs and mopping and my food hadn't even arrived.
Beer is good, they had a nice tripel and some other options that were fairly good, food was pretty well presented but the portion was on the small size and taste was nothing to write home about.
There are better options out there

One of the top locations in Atlanta in my opinion, and my go-to place to wind down after the day. Conveniently located just off the Georgia Tech campus and a mile or so from I-75 and in the same building as Hop City (a nice little beer store).
The atmosphere is always good, even when packed the noise is tolerable. Lots of TVs, and upstairs outdoor seating with a distant view of midtown.
They have about 10+ brews on tap, generally a couple IPAs, a couple Germans, a couple light Belgians, a seasonal, a pilsner, and some other pales. They usually have 1-2 dark beers on tap (Belgians and/or stouts) but they have special dark beer events at the beginning of each month IIRC.
The quality of the beers are above average. Not the best, but still solid.
Foodwise, they do pub food really well, and also have a lot of different options (beer cheese soup, spaetzel, different types of burgers, steak, fish, pizza, duck, lobster, BBQ, rabbit). Never been disappointed with a meal here.
Although the servers aren't the most attentive, they are better than most pubs/breweries.

Stopped in here for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. Nice restaurant despite some obvious wear on the furniture. Good service and seemed pretty knowledgeable about their beers. Waitress suggested the Iron Horse IPA and it was really fantastic. Food was particularly good too. I could see myself hanging out here if I lived in the area. Looks like they rotate their beers often.

Standard microbrewery setting which is comfortable and laid back with a sense of quality. The bartender was very attentive and knowledgable and eager to discuss the brews. The selection is beyond the expectation of a typical microbrewery and near or beyond the level of larger production craft breweries. The cost is reasonable however I didn't try the food or pay close attention to the menu. The variety was very good and spanned many genres. Overall I have found the five seasons brand to be dynamic and above expectations.

One word, Awesome! We were just passing through after flying into Atlanta and went out of our way for this place. We sat in the bar and the bartender happen to also be the beverage coordinator for the 5 Seasons. And was quite knowledgeable. Beer selection was very good and diverse. They do some caskconditioned beer in different whiskey and scotch and winebarrels. Did not get to try any though.
The food was awesome. It is a USDA certified organic restuarant and alot of their products are also local and they display that in the menu. This place is definitely worth the visit, and Hop City is right next door, and you must check that out as well!!

Their food was not as good as I was expecting it to be given their whole "buy fresh local ingredients" theme. My Cuban sandwich was not at all impressive and my wife's Fish & Chips were well...the fries were awesome but the fish was not. Our son and my sister-in-law shared a 5-cheeze pizza that was decent. Our waiter was very nice and answered any questions I had about their beer.
I tried three of their beers. The first was their "Oaky-Fenokee", a Jack Daniel's barrel aged imperial porter. It was good but a little too much time in the barrel, imo. The dark malt & roasted grains had a tough time competing with the HUGE oak flavor. Our waiter said "6 months in the barrels" but he didn't sound too sure.
The second beer I tried was, by far, my favorite. It was their IPA, can't remember the name. It poured a cloudy yellow-orange. Smell and taste were wonderful, classic american hops. Tons of grapefruit, citrus and pine.
The last beer I tried was their Octane Expresso Brown Ale on cask, made with coffee from the shop across the street. This was my least favorite. The best part was it's appearance. It started out great with a beautiful creamy head but went downhill from there. Not much aroma and even less flavor. Also we were there on a Saturday and they tap their casks on Thursdays, so it was already pretty flat by then. Not a bad beer, just very uninteresting.
A bonus to this location is it's right next door to Hop City!
