At first I thought it was a bit strange when the server brought me 5 beer samples in black plastic cups, about 2 ounces each, on a plastic plate. But when she told me they were free I was much happier. The beers were mediocre, the food not too exciting. But ya hafta like free beer

I had a layover in this airport... for 6 hours. In those 6 hours I managed to walk up and down every terminal, get a place tick, try some 420 Pale Ale, and get food poisoning at the Friday’s (or Chili’s or some piece of crap). I should have just gone in here when I first started wandering since when I did finally arrive several planes had just landed and the place was packed. Service was very slow, naturally. Prices were kind of steep, naturally. The place was impossible to navigate with the suitcases everywhere, naturally. I guess if you’re stuck in this airport for 6 hours then stop here and have a beer but several of the other bars in the very same airport have some of the Sweetwater beers (granted only one or two of the more popular ones) and without as much of the hassle.

(Visited 11/2011): Sweetwater’s airport pub is located in concourse B of ATL.
The atmosphere is typical of pretty much every airport restaurant/bar: Loud, cramped and busy. The bar is in the back with some TVs behind it, and there is some Sweetwater breweriana, a mural and merch on the walls which is a nice touch, as is the tin ceiling. Table seating outside the bar area.
The beer selection includes 5 Sweetwater options, one being a seasonal. There are also around 10 bottles.
Service again typical for an airport. Under staffing seems to be the norm, and basic knowledge of the beers.
Food is decent for airport grub. Our sandwiches were not spectacular but got the job done.
Overall I always have an "any port in a storm" mentality when it comes to airports and finding a brewpub represented is always a welcome sight. I would definitely visit here on future visits.

An acceptable stop for beverages in ATL. While the food may be good, all I needed was a beer on this layover, so Motor Boat it was. Friendly staff and prompt service.

It is so nice to have a good option for beer in an airport. All the standard lineup is available with one tap that rotates for the seasonals.Prices are obviously too high just like every airport bar in America. The terminal B location has more space but seems to have more foot traffic based on my two trips here. The terminal A location has a smaller menu and less space, but the same beers. It found it easier to get a seat at Terminal A. Either way, Sweetwater’s draft houses are the prime option for having a beer in this airport.

Bit surprised to see this one in the database. Had a layover, figured i’d grab a beer. They had 3 Sweetwater on (420, IPA, Blue) and very straightforward HMS Host airport food. In terminal B. The service was quite attentive, and friendly.

Run of the mill airport brewhouse. Four offerings available when I went with macro swill. Beers are expensive (as expected), they will give you small sampler in plastic sauce cups (wow!). Food was rather boring (chili dogs with fries, served in plastic plate and plastic cuttlery)...not very classy.

Craft tap house at the airport - love it. 5 house taps on, free tasters. Awesome service.

The last couple of times thru ATL this place was too packed and I had too little time to stop by. A 3hr lay-over allowed me to wait in line and then take my sweet time once seated. If it is packed and you have some time just wait till a table opens up. Small crowded spot that has 4 Sweetwater beers on tap. The help is great and understanding when youre at a table or waiting for a spot. A darn good place for an airport for food and beer.

Stopped in on a layover. Very small, but decent decor. 5 of 6 taps are sweet water beers, which is nice. Otherwise your typical airport bar, but it is nice to not have to eat at a chilis.
