I am a little bias because I volunteer some time in the brewery with Crawford, but in my mind it does not get much better than this place. Ski lodge type atmosphere, very friendly bar staff, unique beers, great food. Ambiance is great, except for the fact that the younger crowd is limited because of location. Service is perfect. The selection is only beers brewed on site (8 taps) and Crawford works his tail off to keep them stocked. Cask night every thurs. of some interesting varieties of whatever is on tap spruced up and cask conditioned. Food is superb and worth the price. Come on by, chances are youíll find me or Crawford in the bar or in the brewery more than willing, like most of the regulars, to discuss the joys of making and drinking beer.

I really enjoyed my dinner at the 5 Seasons North. The atmosphere was great. It had a wood cabin feel, and was classy, but not overly fancy. Good place for a date, as long as you donít mind spending a lot on the food. The prices were pretty high, which was the only thing I can think of that was bad about the place. The beer selection was minimal, about 6 or 7 beers, but you canít expect a restaurant to brew more than that, really. I would like to go again in the future...

This place looks very familiar....used to be a Buckhead Brewery which is a defunct chain that actually started in Tallahassee believe it or not. Lots of exposed wood beam, fireplaces, stone etc. Very comfortable. Same excellent food as the regular 5 Seasons - moderately expensive but worth it - I recommend the Organic Salmon. HAd about 8 on tap - 5 on the menu and 3 more if you ask for them. All above par. The Espresson Stout which was on cask was outstanding. Service friendly and energetic. Highly recommended.

This was originally the old Buckhead Brewery location, I never visited it when it was Embers. It had been many years since we tried 5 Seasons because we rarely eat ITP unless itís in Buckhead. None the less, because we had been to this facility many times as the Buckhead Brewery, we tried it again. It was excellent, although they were short on beer selection due to the recent grand opening event (still, no excuse!). Food was very good, beer was better. Had the Flying Monkeys (Vliegende Aapen) Golden Ale and it was very good. Weíve eaten there only once since, but will be back for sure. Nice to have a microbrew back in north Atlanta again.

I didnít have anything to eat so I canít speak for the food, but the beers I sampled were outstanding. Located on Old Milton just a few blocks east of Georgia 400, this place is easy to find and has ample parking. The main room is open with a high ceiling, but it can still be cozy and intimate. It includes a bar area, a number of tables and booths, and couch-like seating around a fireplace. Two rooms upstairs can accommodate meetings or private parties. Worth visiting time and again; I hope MARTA finally opens a rail station in this area!

Wow. What a great addition to the struggling brewpub scene in the state of Georgia. 6 excellent beers on tap. By far the greatest quality and selection of any brewpub in the state. Pale, Belgian Golden, Strong Porter, Dubbel, Quad, Barley Wine. Worth the drive from the ATL.

The new 5 Seasons North is where Embers was. The beer selection will have to be much more vast being the Original 5 Seasons selection is stronger and bigger. I only hope that they both offer different beers to choose from. I donít want to see any repeats between the two at the same time.
The building looks like a ski lodge. Lots of wood. Fireplace in the middle. Bar is paneled in copper. The much more welcoming staff is much more laid back than the Embers standard. Crawford is an amazing brewer that will keep me coming!
