The beers I have had here are outstanding, and their food is very good. Have a few with dinner! 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!
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 you’ll 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.
Any time i got to Atlanta i know i’m going here multiple times. Beautiful place with a relaxed but happy/upbeat ambiance. Upscale log cabin style construction with very high ceiling and a classy, iron-enclosed fire pit in the center of the restaurant. Brewing equipment visible to the right as you enter. Suitable for just about any type of activity/group. Awesome menu with local options and unique specials that change daily. You’re almost guaranteed to have the best [insert not-so-common meat here, i.e. rabbit, crayfish, elk] dish you’ve tasted. Spent grain bread is ultra tasty and cheap, get it before it runs out. And then there’s the beer! Crawford is an outstanding brewmaster and the taps are always great. I have not been disappointed yet. Same goes for the bottles. I recommend a few samples of what’s on draft, drink your favorite(s) and then split a bottle from the cellar with a friend. Not quite as much selection as the Westside location but still plenty to keep you busy. The quality and atmosphere are high but the price is not. My go-to spot when in ATL. Heading back down there in a couple weeks- can’t wait!!!
I’ve enjoyed all of my meals at 5 Seasons Sandy Springs, and so I was excited to get to try the new location.
The beer moves out of here very quickly. It will never be stale, but they may run out of one now and then.
The food and service are as good as it gets anywhere. The wine selection was excellent too in case your tastes don’t run in beer circles.
Weekends it can be crowded, I suggest a reservation.
Great brewpub in the northern suburbs of Atlanta. I feel very fortunate to live less than 10 miles from here. Crawford brews some great beer in a variety of styles. There are also bottle conditioned 750mls available of limited barrel aged beers. The food is excellent and mostly (if not all) organic and local. The food is a bit pricey, but worth every penny. Great prices on the beer... and they will give you free samples. Great service and a warming environment. Every thursday at 5:55 they tap a cask of something. Check them out!
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.
I have been twice now. Both times I have had awesome bartenders, they have great employees. The IPAs were excellent, didn’t try anything else. Food was also very good. They have about 8 or 9 different beers on tap always along with some cellared 750 bottles which are way pricey. A very solid brewpub, if in the area you will enjoy it.
This is the same location of the old Buckhead Brewery and Embers brewpub, but 5 Seasons has made some improvements to the decor, but it’s still basically the same large, airy space with plenty of wood. Crawford Moran, of Dogwood Brewing fame, produces some incredible and creative beers here and I’ve always been a fan of David Larkworthy’s food. For out-of-towners basing their stay in Downtown Atlanta, the Westside 5 Seasons (also featuring beers by Crawford Moran) or the original Sandy Springs location (with beers by former Sweetwater brewmaster Kevin McNerney who has increased the numbers of beers on tap at a time there).
