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.

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.

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!

The tasting room in the current location is incredible. Thereís not a better production brewery Iíve every visited that is more inviting to visitors. That being said, this is a brewery first and foremost. Itís a great place for a tour, but after you pass the front room, itís just concrete floors and brewing equipment, just like a brewery should be.

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?

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

I stopped in for a Friday tasting session and was thrilled with it. They had a live band, a great crowd of beer lovers, and dogs...everyone was invited to bring their dog; pleasantly unexpected. The beer selection was excellent and their new tap/tasting room had a great ambience. If you live in Atlanta or happen to pass through on a Fri, you have to stop!

This is a pretty cool place, went there for first time 4-6-09 for their "better late than never" X-Mas party! Had a live band and lotís of people there. Mellow mushroom had awesome $1 slices of pizza. Will come back again on a regular day to see how it is. Pretty cool that you can bring your K-9ís w/ you there.

Obviously they only sell Sweetwater beer but the selection of beer and ambiance is great. I had a blast going. They actually sell you an $8 glass with tickets to try their beer. I got an awesome drunk!
