Drank great beer on their patio on a Saturday afternoon with the temps in the mid 70s. Will return every time I am in town. Staff was very friendly. Love Sweetwater.

Best happy hour in town. Go early--it gets CROWDED. Totally worth it though--I think Iíve been about 20 times since moving to ATL 6 months ago!

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.

Good hang-out spot and pre-drink locale. A - Inside, too loud and crowded; Outside, live music, nice patio S - About as nice as they can be when theyíre dealing with as many pours as they do S - Itís Sweetwater... of course it would be nice to have more choices and it would be cooler if the dank tank wasnít twice as much as regular brews F - N/A V - Still a cheap date! O - Cool spot, maybe not as cool as when it was off Fulton Ind, but we all gotta move up sometime, right?

I really enjoyed my trip to Sweetwater. Some may say they donít go indepth enough in the tour. But I really enjoyed it. It was really crowded, but they give you lots of samples and everything was really good. They even had cask beers available there. I look forward to going with others here. (BTW we went on a Thursday... I think this will improve the experience, it was crowded even friday).

We went here after work . We had a great time and plan to go back, with a larger group this time, so more fun and more beer!

Not knowing what to expect, we show up at 5:30 on a Friday, have to park a couple blockas away, then stand in line for 10 minutes. But worth it for the beer! Inside is like a college bar--nothing but a few tables, an L shaped bar and a mass of humanity. Amazingly the lines go quickly with all the people--kudos to the bartenders. The beers and the value are what make it great (also good for people watching). You get five sample tickets and a pint glasss for $10. The samples turn out to be 6-8 oz and all great beers. There was 9 varieties to choose from when I was there. I will return. Again and again, when in town

they have a taproom that is open wed-fri nights for a couple hours and on sat too - you pay $8 and get 6 5oz tickets and a pint glass... good deal. Sometimes they have special casks and beers on tap. Sometimes its just the regular lineup. Tours are pretty cool. It is a big hang out though for the ATL after work scene.

I love this place - itís definitely my favourite place to go late in the week after classes are over before a dinner out with friends. This is one of those places where more is merrier, as crowd size goes. Fridays are always the busiest. For $6 you get a pint glass and 6 tickets for half-pints of beer (high grav choices cost 2 tickets). Recently, the choices were Blue, 420 EPA, IPA, Brown, Hummer, and Festive Ale. They have promised that Happy Ending and Double Dís will return at the top of 2007. There is a tasting room with 2 bars and stools at the bar to sit at, but it gets really loud in there when people cram in. In the warmer weather seasons, they will utilize their fenced-in parking lot area for people to stand and sit, and they will set-up the outdoor taps, one on the patio and usually one in a mobile truck. Advice: bring your own chair to sit in if you want. Thereís also a merch table inside to purchase hats, shirts, posters, etc. if you want. Live music typically on the patio. Since itís close to GA Tech, you get a lot of younger college students as well as an older crowd after work. Definitely a must-go if you enjoy Sweetwater beers, but also if youíre just stopping by in town. Tours arenít great nor impressive...the tour guides ALWAYS talk too long and I always run out of beer mid-tour even if refilling right before going on one.
