Sweetwater Brewery is the largest of the Atlanta area options for brewery tours/tastings and high quality beers. That being said, the place is very spacious with indoor and outdoor options. It draws a large crowd, but also has the largest variety of beer and has plenty of delicious brews. $10 gets you a souvenir pint glass and 6 tickets which is a great way to taste different types of beers. Most beers are worth one ticket with high gravity and special releases worth even two.
SweetWater uses only the top grade ingredients especially the hops for crafting the beers, which means you can always expect great quality in their selection. Whether you are a casual drinker or a hardcore beer nerd you are certain to find something for yourself on their selection. Still, in case you are confused here are some of the best beers you can start with-
- Sweetwater IPA- This mammouth India Pale Ale is loaded with intense hop character and subjected to an extensive dry-hopping process. Our IPA is unfiltered, leaving all the natural flavors intact.
- SweetWater Georgia Brown- A river of deep caramel and chocolate malts meandering through undercut currents of hop additions. Georgia Brown is part of our year round lineup and is line priced with SweetWater’s other lip smackin’ core styles.
- Take Two Pils – This one is a step into an alternate reality for SweetWater, a head-first dive down the rabbit hole into the Wonderland world of lagers. This adventurous golden blonde German style pilsner is brewed with a mad hatter’s dose of spicy floral hops. A must try!
If you would like a premium beer drinking experience then you can give the VIP program a shot. It will grant you and 15-35 of your closest friends hooking up with a private area, speedy checking and catering from a local BBQ joint. Plus, you will get complimentary parking and a dedicated staff member for your help and beer service.
All in all SweetWater Brewing Co is certainly a quality place for friends and family alike. From warm atmosphere to an awesome lineup of high quality beers they have it all. Needless to say, if you are a resident of Atlanta or are on a vacation here you need to check out this place. It won’t let you down!
