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 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.

A bit of disclosure--I am turned off by cavernous, high-ceilinged, 60" TV Sports bars. And this place has all three. Also, the din of the crowd made it nearly impossible to carry on a conversation. OK, that's about it for the bad news.

The best news comes from the prices: My flight of five four-ounce sample beers was $7. My pizza was $10. Perhaps, I've been in Boston too long, but these seemed like a great deal to me.

The beers were fine--the variety was good even though there wasn't a single stout, porter or wheat beer (the Farmhouse Ale is very wheaty).

The server was prompt, helpful and very courteous. He checked a couple of times to make sure everything was okay.

In many ways this is a typical American brew pub. There are no surprises here but you'll likely enjoy the overall experience.

vibe: 4.5 | quality: 4 | service: 4.5 | selection: 4.5 | food: 4 last review was done 6 years ago, so I deleted it and am re-reviewing 5 Seasons Prado because I feel I didn't review it well.

Last weekend I drove 720 miles to Atlanta to see my Falcons play the Dolphins. Staying right off of 285 in Dunwoody, what kind of BA would I be if I went all that way and didn't hit up the local brewpub?

Atmosphere: I walked in on Friday afternoon around 1 or 2pm. Upon first look, I was pretty impressed - nice layout, with a more bar-like level on the left, and in front of me, a very large, open dining area with another large bar. They also have an outdoor seating area. Very asthetically pleasing...good looking establishment. The servers and patrons were all having a nice lunch time and were all very friendly. A few flat-screens for casual viewing. Great feel to the place.

Quality: Everything done nicely. Menu has a little more "upper-scale" feel to it. All aspects done well. Very nice.

Selection: Here was the main reason I had to re-review. The brews on tap were FAR better than they used to be. They had a little something for everyone and had a lot more taps going. I enjoyed an IPA, An Oak Aged TRUFFale, and a Farmhouse Ale. The TRUFFale was phenomenal and the IPA was great. Farmhouse was very good. The beers have improved greatly and definitely need to be tried. Can't wait to get back and get more of them. In addition, they also have a great whiskey selection as well as a full bar. Nice.

Service: Our bartender was great. Very funny, very friendly. Even turns out he has a cousin in Harrisburg! The manager gave us some cupcakes, and I even got to talk beer with the new brewer. Overall, everyone at this place was great.

Food: Food was very good. I had a great Ham sandwich that was on their specials list. I know that doesn't sound all that exciting but it was done in a manner that demanded ordering. The menu has something for all tastes and the presentation is spectacular. Overall a great experience.

Value: Reasonable and worth it.

Overall: I am very glad I stopped back to re-try this place. The beers are much improved, the food was great, the staff treated us very well, and the patrons were fun. I'll be back many times. If you're in the area, make your way here and have fun. You'll love it.

The staff was very friendly and informative. They brew a nice selection. Our favorites were the bottle conditioned Flanders and the Long Slow Triple Belgian. The manager came out and opened the Flanders for us. The menu is very interesting. They like to support local organic farmers. The food was very good. Went there twice on a recent business trip to Atlanta. The Hopgasm was also an excellent beer. 5 Seasons has two other locations in Atlanta, apparently with different brewers. I have only been to the Prado location. We sat outside in a very large covered area which was not crowded. The restaurant inside was fairly crowded and they have another bar area with pool and darts (smoking) also. Definitely would recommend this if you are in Atlanta.

Very good overall experience. One of the best IPA's I've had (and I've had hundreds). The IPA (HopGasm) was worth the trip alone. Also, they have a very good version of the Belgium Dubbel, which is not easy to find (not too sweet, nice variety of flavor). Very good bartender who helped me make the most of my dinner and beer (Monday night at the bar). He also gave me a bit of the Barley Wine, which was very good. The selected beer styles were great. I couldn't try the Scotch Ale or a full Barley Wine (or Golden Ale) because I had to drive. Overall, great experience and this is at the top of my list when I'm in Atlanta.

Visited this little brewpub in response to advice I got from this website. Good location just north of atlanta.
Nice high ceilings and exposed brewing equipment make for a good atmosphere. A bit loud considering the amount of people in the restaurant. They have a nice selection of beers and food. I was impressed by the menu. The first thing I ordered was their Tripel. It was a very, very good beer. I have had bad experinces with brewpubs in the past, but this was a very solid version of this great style.

We ordered some appetisers and they came out in about ten minutes. The lobster cake was tasty and well prepared. The crab had more breading on it than it did crab. Wasn't terrible, but wasn't notable.

Our waitress seem preoccupied with something else. Maybe this was due to the fact that 18% was already going to be added to our check. When she came up to take our orders, she stood there without saying anything, half the people at the table didn't know she was standing there. It was pretty damn awkward.

The entrees were less than spectacular. They brought out everyone's food except for one persons. She had to wait about five minutes while they finished her dish. I got the filet au prauve. It was a delicious peice of meat. Covered in peppercorns and a sweet savory sauce, it was cooked perfectly too. The other dishes that I tried were okay, one being particularly bad.

I tried the ESB, chugging monkey, and the barleywine. All were good beers. This place was alright, a little expensive I'd say.

I visited the North location on September 24th after a business meeting. After reading great reviews of the place, I have to admit that I was less than impressed overall.

First, I found the most lacking element was courteous service. When I enter a pub, especially one not overly busy, I expect to be greeted and asked my pleasure. I found my own way to the bar where there were only 3 or 4 other patrons, yet it took me 10 minutes to get a notice from the lady tending bar. She seemed unable to answer many questions about the beer but did give me a beer menu and a regular menu. Her replies seemed grudging and perfunctory, usually replying over her shoulder while walking away. It left me feeling unwelcome. I finally gave up trying to either ask her questions or give her orders.

But I came for the beer, and this is what the review is about, right? They have 5 beers on the menu, but one was not available and one extra was still around. Here are my impressions:
Copperhead ESB: Not and ESB. Lacking in almost every English character. Overly hopped with Cascade and so stuffed with caramel malts that it tasted like a Sugar Daddy dipped in pine tar.
Festbier: Their Oktoberfest offering was lacking in any melanoidin richness and had a strong soapy character and evident dicetyl notes. Perhaps it was forced and hasn't lagered long enough or maybe I just got a glass that hadn't had the dish soap rinsed off.
Helles: Finally a beer to style with strong Tettanang hop bite and just the right low malt breadiness and a slight melanoidin richness. Slight astringency in the finish. Their most mainstream beer, but a nice example.
Tripel: Not on the menu, never offered to me, but she poured it from a secondary set of taps and I spotted her doing it, so asked for a sample. 15 minutes later I got one. I shouldn't have bothered. It had a strong orange aroma, like Tang, and the flavor was of sour honey with distinct fusel high alcohols. Dark and still too sweet for the style. I didn't even finish my 1 ounce taster.

I also had the calamari appetizer. The food is not cheap here. I cereal bowl of calamari was $10 and 75% of the bowl is filled with fried onion bits. I had been planning on eating dinner here, but bailed after just the appetizer. It would have cost me at least $50 to eat here if I had a salad and an entree.

After reviewing the Brick, I would be remiss if I did not add my other Atlanta brew and food spot. An awesome place, about to get out of the construction mess hopefully. The inside is beautiful with exceptionally crafted beers and top notch menu. The owners Japanese touch is there on the menu, and it is a spectacularly fresh, and ever changing menu of organic food. The beers tend to be standard, but getting a bottle conditioned Flanders Ale, or Belgian Triple can't be beat. Definitely pay for the quality, but well worth it.

Stopped by here on the way back from Wine Craft.

Atmosphere is really cool. If you sit at the bar there are huge windows where you can much of the brewing equipment. It's really open as well, and there are a lot of little touches, such as the copper plated bar - that make it really cool.

Quality is good. I got an Imperial Stout served to me in a tulip glass and my buddy got an Oktoberfest Bier in a tall mug. Both were excellent.

Service was really good. Granted we were just about the only people there, but we didn't have to wait for anything. The bartender was really chatty and the owner came and talked with us for a while. No questions about the place or the beer went unanswered.

Selection was pretty good. There were five regular ABV beers and three big beers on tap, all house brews. They covered a wide enough spectrum that anyone could find something they'd like.

Food was good, I went with the fish and chips as I always do and it didn't disappoint. They have a lot of random stuff on their menu as well, such as edamame and a lobster burger.

Overall it was a really cool place and I'm sorry to hear that they may be going under with the construction all around them. Definitely check this place out if you haven't before, and you have start going more often to keep them afloat.

I have been to this location a couple of times. The first time that I went, my father tried to order a Miller Lite and they told him that they don't serve that kind of beer. That won extra points in my book for that.

The food is a nice step up from most brew pub fare. I have had the fish & chips and the filet & frites. Both are really good. The service and atmosphere is good.

The first time that I went I tried the beer sampler (from what I recall, all seemed to be very drinkable beers)and then chose a Stout to finish dinner. It seems that most brew pubs darker beers are better than the light. I am sure this appeases the light beer masses.

Overall, ususally a fine meal and a couple of good pints. I would recommend to anyone looking for a good brew and a step up in fare from the typical grub.

Along with most of the previous reviewers, I've been to this place several times. I've only been to the Prado location. There is another location in Alpharetta and a 3rd under construction in west Atlanta.
The atomosphere inside is quite nice. Lots of wood and a "tri level" seating area with the bar as the highest point and a large outdoor patio. You can see the brewing facilities all around through large windows.
The quality of everything is always very good. The night we went (2-28-08) they were serving the Seven Sisters (always avail), an ESB, Stout and a Cream Ale. I had the ESB, which I thoroughly enjoyed, and my wife had the cream ale and the stout. I tried both and they were quite tasty. Don't pay attention to the beer list on the menu. Always ask the server what's available because what they serve usually changes faster than they can change the menu.
Service is always great. Fun, informative, and reasonably prompt. The service can get slow in busy times, but not unreasonable. The staff will chat with you about the beers if you give them a chance and it's not super busy.
Selection is usually pretty good. They usually have at least 4 beers available. As I stated above, ask what's available because it changes quickly and often.
Food is very good. They use local and organic ingredients when possible. The main menu stays the same all the time, but they always have an extensive specials list that is always a treat. You can't go wrong with any choice. My favorite is the Georgia Fish & Chips, fried trout with a tomato malt vinegar. Yum!
There is massive construction going on in the shopping center right now, but don't let that stop you. There is a complimentary valet, so you don't have to worry about finding a parking space. Supposedly, the construction is supposed to be done in May, but don't wait until then. This place is worth the effort.

7-14-08 edit: The parking garage at the shopping center is now open. Parking is a snap and you can either valet for free or self-park for free as well.

An upscale restaurant as well as a decent brewery. The atmosphere is wonderful, and enough room between the tables. The brewing vats are on display as is usual. I would suggest, if it's not too cold, getting a seat out on their covered patio. It's a little quieter out there. The food is excellent, though everything is a little more expensive because of that. The beers were nice too; they run a good seasonal rotation, and cellar a few for year round consumption. Not really a kid friendly place in either the menu or environment, it's just not the crowd they cater too.

Went to dinner last night Friday 02/08/08. I went to dinner with my wife and two young children.

Right now there is a large construction project going on at the lot next to the area where the 5 Seasons is located and that's pretty much made a huge mess of parking..I of course know this is not the restaurants' fault but point it out for the information of any who are planning on visiting any time soon.

When I walked in to the resaurant I felt at home right away with the decor. Lots of dark wood..low lighting..high ceilings and stone floors, all very nice. Seperate bar room with a couple of pool tables and a small bar that allows smoking.

While waiting for our tables I stepped into the pool room area and ordered the Seven Sisters which was described nicely on the beer menu and was much like a Marzen. The beer was very good and the value for the beer I thought was pretty good as it cost about 4.65 and it was probably better than 22oz

We sat down and took a look at the food menu and I was impressed by the menu. As a father of young children, I realized quickly that feeding my children here wouldn't be easy, as they don't really have anything on the menu that is child friendly.

The artisinal cheese sampler was very well prepared and very nice. I ordered the lamb tenderloin, my wife the rib eye and we ordered a pork chop plate for the kids to split, that along with an additional Helles that I had and sodas and tea for the rest of the family and it was about 90.00 so the price isn't exactly cheap for a family..but the quality of the food was excellent

The beer selection is limited, but I had two different beers there and both were very well crafted.

I would recommend this resaurant to anybody with the caveat that it's really a place for adults as children (especially finiky eaters) would find it hard to find a dish on the menu that would be to their liking.

Went to Five Seasons Prado Mon night, Jan 14, 2007 for the first time. I went with my boyfriend who just happened to be wearing his brick store jacket. The minute we sat down at the bar, the man who we assumed was the bartender said with great vigor, "Anyone who wears that jacket here gets good service!" He slapped a sampler of the 5 beers they had on tap in front of us and left us to the other bartender to order a beer. Turned out the first man was one of the owners, Denis.

As the night proceeded, Denis returned and proceeded to bestow on us EXCEPTIONAL service - he hooked us up with some bottle brews from the back, a free appetizer, a free tour of the brewery with through explanations, and topped off our original beers too. We had a blast talking to him about his world travels and beer passion. I don't know if it was just because of the jacket or because it was a slow monday night or because I work at his favorite coffee shop, but his service definitely made return customers out of us. I am recommending the place to everyone I know...

And the thing is- the beer was just as good as the service. The bottles he brought out, one a saison and one a tripel, were stellar. The saison was the fullest and most flavorful I've tasted.

I can't wait until they open their new location across from Octane Coffee in West Atlanta off of Howell Mill... bringing the love a little closer to my favorite part of town...

Visited on Tuesday, January 8, 2008 at approx 5PM. Five Seasons is located in a small mall. This is a pretty big place. High ceiling, somewhat dark and modern decor. The brewing tanks and equipment are visible through large windows.

I had two different beers there and they were quite good. I had the Delerium Dubbel and Sledgehammer West Coast Ale. They were both quite good and true to style.

I, personally, did not have any food, but I revewed their menu and everything looked quite good. One gentlemen was sitting at the bar near me was served one of the specialties of the house that smelled wonderful and almost made me cave in. He commented that the food was very good.

The value seemed quite reasonable. I would certainly recommend this place to anyone who visits Atlanta.

On a recent trip to see my friend beermang in atlanta we came here to the Five Seasons Brewing Co. for a wonderful afternoon! Entering the brewbub i am happy to see lots of dark wood and lots of space, there is a bar featuring the 5 fresh brewed taps which were: a helles- soft and fresh, very good^^ an IPA - also very good and hoppy but not over the top^^ a porter- very nice flavor of malt and dark fruit^^ a wee heavy scotch ale that was delicios with a hint of smoke and vanilla^^ and my favorite of the standard taps- A Vienna Lager, this was an awsome malty lager which i could have drank all day! There was also another set of taps with a couple beers by other breweries and their Two special seasonal brews which i will talk about in a second.

The menu was very informative regarding all the beers on hand. We had lunch and the prices were reasonable- worth it for the quality of the food we got. I had a nice blackend mahi mahi sandwhich with pomme fries- very nice tartar sauce that they make. To drink i had the sampler which was the 5 beers in 4 ounce glasses for only 6$! and a vienna lager. Our waiter was very attentive without being annoying, and he knew about beer to.

The atmosphere in this place is very nice. From my seat i was facing the bar with the brewery being directly behind it separated by glass. Nice looking copper tuns and i could see the brewmaster at his craft. Behind me was the beer garden.

After our meal we ordered the speacial beers- An imperial Scotch Ale and a Barley Wine. The scotch ale was awsome! It had been aged in oak at the brewpub- i could taste alot of vanilla, maybe the best scotch ale i've ever had. My favorite beer of the day was the Barley Wine, as i sat and savored this treat i was in heaven, this was a perfect afternoon and i only wish i lived closer so i might come more often- i will miss this brewpub once i return to south florida i thought as i left. Do not miss this place if your in Atlanta!
