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 IPA’s aren’t your thing, the Kilt Lifter Scotch Ale is also a favorite.
Weird shopping plaza, very large with places scattered all over. This place is tucked into the northeast corner and has a parking lot nearby. Large interior, big bar dominates all, and lots of TVs. Brewing equipment surrounds the periphery. Apps were tasty and creative. Ten or so taps, we shared a flight, and beers were decent enough. A bit of a chain restaurant feel to the whole experience.

Really big restaurant with a great outdoor area, but small bar. Service was good, but not really beer focused. Food was great and prices were reasonable. Beer was good but nothing that stood out.
Much bigger than you think with a large welcoming bar and a huge patio. Bartender was very nice and knowledgeable enough about their own beers. Had eleven different beers of theirs on tap when I was there, not too bad. Food was outstanding, a little overpriced, but not too bad. Definitely a nice destination for people in the area.
Brewpub in Atlanta with a few locations. I’ve been several times and always enjoyed the beer and the food. Overall, I’d say the beer has generally been solid; I’ve had a few standouts, but some are just mediocre. I’m told the bottle conditioned stuff they have behind the bar is the real deal, but haven’t had a chance to sample any of those yet. Service is generally friendly and attentive.
Nice terraced layout, with the brew kettle behind the bar. The servers were very attentive. The selection of beers is good. The food we all had was excellent. The prices are fair. The food is a little pricy, but the beer is $5-6 per glass. This is a great place.
Wow, we stumbled across this place by accident while looking for a liquor store in the area. Am I ever glad we did! I tried the milk stout, Hopgasm IPA and the bourbon barrel aged scotch ale. All of which were top notch. The wait staff, while still training, were incredibly friendly and what they didn’t know they were more than eager to ask for us. The food was brilliant. I had the antelope burger which was killer. We finished with a chocolate cake which was probably the best thing I’ve ever eaten. ever. Paired with the bourbon scotch ale... Joygasm. Cudos to you 5 seasons. I will be back.
The restaurant is spacious and airy with several distinct areas including a very appealing bar, several seating areas in the same large open space, a covered, outdoor beer garden, and a pool hall room with its own small bar. They usually only serve their own in-house beers which vary from good to excellent, and are served in proper glassware. Service is usually very good, and the food is dependably good, being upscale in both content and price.
Located towards the back of a big, unwieldy shopping center. Brewpub chain feel, but fairly dark and woody. Nice vibe. The menu features some less than usual proteins, and I had an antelope dish which was solid. Beers were all solid with a couple of standouts. Prices are solid. Staff was nice, but I was with TBS who knows a lot of the staff here so I can’t comment on the normal customer experience. Overall pretty nice.
