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.

There are several Buckhead Breweries in the Atlanta area, but this is the only one I've made it to. The beers are well-made, but not necessarily exciting. The food is good and the menu is varied and not just the usual stuff.
