Either is good, but the 5 seasons is better. WHile you are there, I would hop to Taco Mac for a few. They usually carry around 300 beers with about 30+ on tap.

I think we are doing 5 seasons for sure. So if it were between taco mac and brick store?

Both are good. I like Taco Mac a lot. If you do go the the Mac, get either a burger or wings nothing else is worth the trip (assuming you might eat AND drink).

+1 on that. Taco mac is the way to go. Plus the original is right down the road from the seasons.

Depends on what you are looking for... I think the two are apples and oranges.

Brick Store Pub has a belgian bar where you will find things that are just not as availableat other bars. If their website makes you salivate, head there. There are no TV's at the brick store. It is intended to be a more... personal? organic? old school? experience.

Taco Mac is a local sports bar chain that has a good beer list, some locations better than others. The food is fairly typical pub grub, but is often done correctly. I enjoy several selections on their menu. The place is loud, filled with TVs. Wait staff is often unfamiliar with the specifics of any given beer. I visit the one in Canton fairly often. Except for the 70s ski lodge thing... though the lighted wall of beer mugs is pretty cool...

I think either would a good, yet different, experience.

5 seasons is a great choice. Solid beers, and the food at Prado and West Side is consistently good in my experience. I had a bad experience at the one off 400, and I also think it looks like a 70's ski lodge, but I am sure it was a quirk (it was late on a BUSY night).

Chefmike,

You should let me in on that nanobrewery. I love DIY projects. Also it is time to trade some beers. I got dunkelweizen and german alt bottled, APA in the keg, and a scotch 80 in the fermenter and a blood orange hefe on the next brewday.( next week or the week after)

If I had to choose only one place to go in Atlanta, I would choose the Brick Store.

+1 to Brick Store. I'm sure every city has a Taco Mac kind of place but the Brick is rated the #2 bar in the world by Beer Advocate and several magazines have done write ups on it. Really cool place.
