Went to the 4 Seasons tonight for a Steak Night charity dinner.
Atmosphere: This is a sports bar. No two ways about it. 18 tvs with all kinds of sports paraphenalia all over the place. Some pool tables, VLTs (Video Lottery Terminals), video games and an air hockey table. The booths and tables are laid out in a cafeteria style format so that they all point generally towards the main wall of tvs. Really pretty boring, and if the game you're interested in isn't on the biggest tv, you don't get the sound and that's a bit of a turn off. There is a restaurant side to the building that has less sports memorabilia and only 2 tvs.
Note: There is a law in Saskatchewan that allows a brewpub to have an offsale (cold beer and wine store). Otherwise only hotels could have an offsale. Therefore, many brewpubs popped up in Saskatchewan in the early 90's, this one opened around 2000.
Their house brews were really unimaginative. All 3 looked exactly the same, in fact between the 3 of us that went, at one time we each ordered a different beer and they all looked alike. The beers weren't horrible, but nothing to write home about either.
Service was acceptable, our waitress had forgotten about an appetizer order and it came out a little cool, but other than that things were alright.
Selection was typical of most lounges in Regina. Lots of Molson and Labatt's products with a couple Big Rock, Western and imports. They had 5 other beers on tap (Kokanee, Kokanee Gold, Bohemian, Canadian, Pilsner) all macro lagers.
The food we had was actually pretty good, and in general, this place has always had ok food. The menu is pretty much pub grub, but the steaks we had were done properly and a reasonable size. I was expecting shoe leather and while it wasn't a new york cut, it wasn't bad either.
It wasn't that busy, but the parking lot was packed. Apparently this is a common problem so you might have to park around back, or on a side street. Shouldn't have to walk more than a block though.
The primary focus of this place is not craft beer. They only brew as a matter of convience to operate their offsale. Their focus is getting people in the door to watch sports with cheap food and drinks. I wouldn't go out of my way to make a special trip here, but I would go back if friends were interested or for another special night like tonight (fundraiser, pool tournament, etc).

A large dark sports barn with an extract brewing system that puts out a limited number of beers. Lots of tv's around the place. I did not notice any windows.
Staff have a limited knowledge of their own beer but were friendly.
The beer is on the bland side. The food was adequate.
As I have mentioned in some other reviews of Saskatchewan brewpubs, Saskatchewan liquor laws allow brewpubs to have private liquor store, this has been a major factor in the development of a number of brewpubs in the province.
