Visited the brewery on a Saturday. It was VERY crowded, but the short, 20-minute tour was great and the tour guide was funny. We sampled 6 beers for free. You can also pay $10 for a souvenir glass with your free beers. They had 8 beers on tap; three usual beers you can find anywhere, four beer that are harder to get in stores, and new beer. There was a band outside. Worth a visit.

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!

Iíve done the "tour" a hundred and one times, and have had a blast each time. Been to receptions and graduations here. The bar area peering into the brewery is pretty neat. The standards are always on tap. This is my home town brewery so I am partial and nostalgic. Good stuff all around, but will probably not blow an out of towner away.

Great time whenever I get a chance to show up. Have all the sweetwater staples and seasonals, and sometimes the dank tank collection. If you are looking for a fun Friday afternoon/evening with good local beer, this is the place

Was here for the sweet 16 celebration. Two large bars, one upstairs and one down, with plenty of outdoor space as well. Staff was very nice and knowledgeable about their beer, if not curt, but understandable considering the volume of people at the bar. Was all their beer on tap, but there were some awesome hidden gems sprinkled about, including casks of treated beers, jockey boxes with other rare stuff, and even more rare stuff sprinkled about mixed with their core beers. Food trucks a plenty, but they donít serve their own food. Value was superb, ticket to enter got you the free glass and ten drink tickets. Although some of the special beers were two tickets, a lot of the time I did not even have to use the tickets at all. Great brewery, definitely want to visit again next time Iím in Atlanta to experience it with a few less people there.

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

This is the first brewery I have been to for around ten years since I went to Busch Gardens. The tour takes about 20 minutes and I took it threems times and every time it was hosted by a hot girl. Speaking of hot girls the bartenders are hot. Just ask them questions about hummers and donkey punches. LOL. Since they canít sell you beer you can buy a glass for $8 and it comes with 5 or 6 tickets for free beer. I was able to get more because my friend and I recieved around 6 more tickets from these business people who had some corporate event going on there at the time. We also got there name tags so we could go over to their are and take their food (the brewery doesnít serve food). This annoying queery guy there caught on to us and called us out but we didnít give a shit because we were drunk so we continued to take their food. Ha ha. They were out of their Road Trip beer so now that gives me an excuse to go back.

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!

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.

Toured in December 2004. Well, I didnít actually go on the tour, more like just showed up with friends to drink 4 of their beers for $5. I was very impressed with all of their beers. They give you 4 tickets and a cool glass beer mug, and you can sample any 4 of their beers they have on tap outside (when I went there were 5 different ones). Great deal, and I plan on going back this winter.
