Toured in April 2001. Thought the brewmaster was kinda of a snotty, pretentious asshole (I know more about beer than you!), but the beer was good and everyone else was nice enough. Iíd go back.

After a failed attempt to visit here, we showed up 45 minutes early and were able to get in with much ease. The staff was really friendly and informative. All the beers on tap are available elsewhere, but thatís okay. Itís a good selection anyway. The building is large, clean, efficiently set up, and decorated nicely. The tour of the actual brewing facility was pretty neat. For 8 bucks I got an IPA glass and 6 tickets for beer samples. Not bad. Iím really glad I got to visit one of the brewing meccas of the southeast. I had a fun time. Recommended

A fun tour, a beatiful and large tasting room, the best place to meet people in Atlanta. Well staffed, beautiful women. Free tatsing or at cost for large samples in a glass. What more can you ask for?

Stopped in on a Friday. Definitely quite the scene with tons of people and a nice outdoor space to drink and a large bar inside. They tend to have anywhere for 5-7 taps on depending on the day. A great deal for any ten bucks.

I personally think Sweetwater beers are the best being brewed in Georgia if not most of the southeast. I have been driving cases of Sweetwater IPA back to NJ whenever I can for years now (their beers are not distributed further north than southern VA), and often bribe friends to do the same for me. I recently had the pleasure of visiting the brewery on a beautiful warm fall Sat afternoon. I had a great experience drinking their beers, listing to great live music, taking the tour, and talking beer with the Sweetwater employees. I highly recommend a visit to their weekend gatherings. You can also find their beers in most GA restaurants with even modest listings of micros.

Wide open space invites a large and lively crowd. They have just a few beers on tap, but these are their standard offerings that are darn good. Servers are friendly, helpful and efficient - theyíll even "babysit" your iPad. Up to six glasses for ten bucks - thatís a good deal, and if you want you can shop n their store. Tours are typical, but the guys who lead them are fun.

I went a couple of years ago, and from I remember, it was a combination of yuppies, Georgia Tech fucks, and a modicum amount of beer lovers. The Tech kids are fucking annoying. They are there just to be seen there. I donít really understand the afore mentioned point on a philosophical level, but I can understand wanting to be around people, as opposed to just being seen. They didnít have a special tap, or cask of anything while I was there. These Atlanta-based breweries are really cookie cutter places if you ask me. If you go to Sweetwater youíve practically been to them all despite subtle differences. Meh...Sweetwater beer is mediocre, and the people that patronize the brewery are complete fuck-tards, because maybe 1% actually take the time to dedicate themselves to craft brewing. Prices are decent I must say. Just a warehouse with a tasting room, and then a brewery, as others have mentioned, as it should be. Coming here doesnít stand out as an exceptional experience.

This is a brewery, but has a large tasting room and patio. A very popular hangout, where you can get cheap, reasonably good beer. The ambiance in the tasting room is minimal. Concrete floors and a few sparse decorations. It is crowded and noisy. The service is nonexistent, but the bartender was friendly and generous (probably overly so). For the price, you get plenty of beer and a fun time.

A little out of the way, but good beers served in a nice atmosphere. Iíve been here several times for the Cask Ale event.
