April 17, 2013 Review:
I just revisited this place, and I thought my review could use an update for sure. First off, the draft list was significantly more interesting. The bartender that I had was excellent. The food was a bit slow (they were very crowded due to a convention being in town), but it was very good. Lastly, but certainly importantly, the beers were all tasty. I had the IPA, Black IPA, and Vienna, and I found all of them to be solid or better, which differs quite a bit from my original review. They also had a solid selection of other beers in bottles. Iím glad I revisited this place.

Thought this place was mediocre. The lay-out was that typical industrial look you see in many brewpubs. Our server was pretty good, we split a few apps and a pizza. The pizza was solid, the chicken tenders not so good.
As for the beer: They had 4 on tap when I was there (pretty weak selection if you ask me) - APA, Lager, Brown, and Stout. Beers were OK, but not worth going from too far away. Our hotel was 2 blocks away, Iíd say it was worth that walk, but not much more!

Every seven years or so, Iím at a convention in Atlanta and itís a treat to hit Max Lagers for decent brews near the big hotels. A pleasant environment, conventional brewpub with mahogany and copper tanks, two floors and plenty of seating. Food is above average for this sort of place, even if well short of gastropub fare. And the beer menu is nice too, with plenty of domestic craft in bottles and on tap, in addition to the solid offerings brewed on site. Over the several days of conference madness, I ended up here three different times with different folks and enjoyed it each time (ended up getting a good sampling of the brews as well). Friendly, inviting, a good place.

Downtown location with crappy parking. Brewery equipment is open into the restaurant and very visable. The place was very crowded and busy with a good restaurant decor. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly about their beers but seemed too busy to focus on their customers. The selection of beers was good and the food was very good. Overall this was a nice place, better than some of the other Atlanta brewpubs but nowhere near the quality of 5 seasons.

A dandy brewpub near - if not in - the heart of Atlanta. I like the rather rough decor because it makes the place unpretentious. Their brews are OK at worst, and usually tend towards very good, if not world-class. Food is above average by a comfortable margin.

Visited while attending a convention. Good downtown location. Decent prices. All of their brews were pretty average. Worth stopping by.

Nice brewpub in downtown Atlanta. Food is better than average and so are the brews for a brewpub. Nice ambiance - has a nice industrial/warehouse feel to it, only cozy.

Went for lunch when I was at a conference. Was able to sample some of their beers, but I was the only man the bartender had to wait on, and it took me about 50 minutes to get my food. They were a bit busy, but the service was a bit lacking. The beer was pretty good, and the food was tasty, at downtown prices. Would go back to hang out, or if I had a bit more time.

This place is so frustrating. They could really catch a crowd if they just focused a bit more on their beer. Honestly, I think if they forced the brewer to attend a brewing school, you could really have something special. I went with my brother and sister-in-law. The food was pretty good. Some of their food is expensive, and well worth it, but some of their other stuff, not so much. I love the fact that they have their own house brews. They really could give 5 Seasons a run for their money if they just tweaked some of their damn recipes. The service was pretty good, but nothing mind-blowing. Overall, give this place a chance. They seem to want to be a great place to go to, but they just need the proper manager to guide them in the right direction.

Nice place with a small lot you might get parking in, six beers on tap when I visited, they were sort of underwhelming. Didnít take note of the food, seemed like a power lunch crowd when I was there at noon on a weekday.

Nice place. Semi pub alike but friendly staff and ambiance. Like the selection too.
