Love it Love it Love it! This is my favorite place for a nice evening out. I typically sit at the bar to take advantage of the bartenderís beer knowledge. The menu is always changing. I canít say enough. Iíve taken numerous people here and they all agree. They were able to find something they loved to eat and able to pair there food with great beer. Iíve now moved to Orlando, and nothing compares.
This is a must when I am in the Atlanta area. I have tried most items on their menu and have never been disappointed. The beers are always great, they are always changing the varieties so you never know what to expect when you stop in, this too keeps me coming back. An absolute must stop!
This is the best brewpub in Atlanta and the best in the state. These guys brew everything from traditional German-style pale lagers to stouts, scotch ales and Belgian-style ales. I've never had a bad exam-ple of a style brewed by these guys and when they brew a style I like it's often amazing. Those who aren't fond of lagers beware, brewmas-ter Glen Sprouse is fond of the traditional German styles and those who aren't fond of lagers may come away with a negative impression of the place if they come in on one of the more lager-heavy lineups. The good news is that they brew over 30 beers and turnover is high so the next time you go back, you'll probably find something you like better. The food is actually some of the best in Atlanta. I've had several of their dishes (the steak is amazing) and have liked everything. It's just too bad they're priced a bit out of this poor boy's range, so I rarely eat on my visits.

While all three 5 Seasons have the same Executive Chef, in David Larkworthy, this location is set apart due to Brewmaster Kevin McNerney. Formerly Head Brewer at Avery Brewing Company in Bolder and Co-founder of SweetWater Brewing Company in Atlanta, Kevin moved to 5 Season in 2008 to spend more time with his family. It was then that I experienced my first of many Hopgasams - his inaugural release with 5 different hops including Simcoe and Amarillo. If IPAís arenít your thing, the Kilt Lifter Scotch Ale is also a favorite.
When going in, this is a large, very elegant establishment with high ceilings and a wooden structure. The large venting ducts have been painted to match and everything comes together very well. The brewery is visible behind the bar and the fermenters are visible off to the side of the restaurant. Everything is outdone here, nothing is compromised. The service is good, no big gripes when I was there. I met the brewmaster (Dennis) and he was one of the coolest, most down to earth brewmasters I've ever met. He was even kind enough to give me a sneak-peak preview at his upcoming triple which was terrific at only 10-days old. The selection of beers on tap was very well rounded for any tastes. My biggest love of this place is the food, they have the best menu in a brewpub I've ever seen. The food was all very tasty and modern, like I said, nothing is compromised. This is definatelly a NOT-MISS spot in Atlanta.
This is the best brewpub Iíve ever visited, and Iíve visited many. The reason is simple: fantastic beer, fantastic food, and fantastic atmosphere. It was a little out of the way to get to (not on the subway, so we took the subway then a bus, and had to keep our eyes peeled) but after a long day of too touristy downtown Atlanta this was worth the trip. I am a big hophead, and there were no really hoppy beers on tap. Yet, the dubbel was fantastic, better than the Rochefort 10, which is my favourite. I shy from pilsner and lager styles, yet their Hellle was really good. The Scotch Ale was excellent and my girlfriend and I both pretty much passed out over the Barleywine. And the desserts. Oh, the desserts. The least impressive was their signature Seven sisters, which was pretty bland compared to all the great stuff we had before that. I would like to taste what else they brew, because this, though a small selection, was top notch. Just go.
A fabulous brewpub. I have never been disappointed by any of their offerings. The food is absolutely fabulous - it is as much a restaurant as a pub. 5 Seasons is perfect for having meetings or parties because they have an enclosed porch and a side room that can both accommodate large groups. This brewpub is easy to find - right off Roswell Road just inside I-285 - and parking is plentiful; plus, it is on the #5 Sandy Springs MARTA route.
Outstanding food, and great beer. What more could you want? The food is truly outstanding, albeit pricey. With a dedication to high quality LOCAL organic food, this place is not only committed to great beer, but also commited to local sustainable agriculture and delicous food. The beers are all good. My only complaint is the noise level is VERY high on a busy evening. You have to yell to hear someone 2 seats away.
