Don't cry over spilt homebrew spilling from the beer-brewing home setup that's flooded your home with homespilt tears of beer. Figure out where you screwed up with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a brewery tour at 5 Seasons Brewing Company (a $35 value). Peek into the secret lair of 5 Seasons' spirits at either the Westside or Alpharetta location. There are events throughout the week; call ahead to find out what food pairings are scheduled for the night.

Your tour will give you a glimpse into the brewing bunker where Atlanta's award-winning suds are made. On the group tour, you'll learn the secrets of 5 Season's specialty tastes and see firsthand the people, places, and processes that specially shine the moonshine (but never moon it). Brewing tours are popular bonding sessions for bros, beer connoisseurs, sporting-goods payroll clerks, and anyone else who wants to hone his or her hops palate without having to drink by oneself—which is socially considered to fall somewhere between sad and "cuh-reepy." You'll get to taste five of 5 Seasons' handcrafted beers; check out what's on tap in Alpharetta and what they're pouring in Westside. There will also be two food pairings, or as 5 Seasons likes to call them, arranged flavor marriages.

5 Seasons was founded to serve the city of Atlanta world-class beers alongside elegant cuisine. The casual, welcoming atmosphere is filled with fine-dining fare (Zagat rated the food in the "very good to excellent" category) that changes seasonally to accommodate locally grown ingredients. Stop by on a summer night to take advantage of the Westside location's rooftop patio, which has not yet been publicly acknowledged as spring-loaded.

You must be 21 or older.

5 Seasons Brewing

Flanked by rustic stone columns and carved lions, 5 Seasons Brewing's entrance looks like the secluded front to a Napa Valley villa, belying its cozy atmosphere and community-focused mission to provide tasty, affordable food and drink. Founded by chef David Larkworthy—son of a pioneering advocate of using organic food in restaurants—Five Seasons Brewing carries its commitment to community to its ingredients, cooking with a cornucopia of regularly shifting local produce from a gaggle of affiliated farms. The menu features such fusion dishes as crispy alligator served with a blackened chili glaze and Remoulade. At tables, guests dig in to home-baked bread, whose warm crust exudes tangy scents from the brewery's spent beer grain.

In the towering tanks that skirt the pub, brewmaster Kevin McNerney creates a kaleidoscopic selection of unique small-batch beers. The cofounder of flagship Georgia brewer SweetWater, McNerney brings two decades of experience to his craft, making refreshing brews such as the Chug Monkey and turning to ancient Belgian traditions to make his crisp, orange-infused witbier.
