Most Lompoc locations have all the atmosphere of an Applebee’s, and Fifth Quadrant is no exception. It’s too bright inside, and the high booths remind you of uncomfortable family dinners. But the reason to make a trip, as with the other incarnations of the local brewery, is the beer. As of press time, their seasonal brews are still available, including the dark, hoppy 8 Malty Nights, the vanilla porter Holiday Cheer and Jolly Bock lager. MATT SINGER.
