Took a short trip over from my terminal to check this place out. Bartender was friendly - I had a couple beers and a bowl of chili. Glad I opted to go here instead of the Sam Adams bistro at my terminal.

Hardly waited to visit it before my Costa Rica adventure. It’s a small brewpub, neat, but it seems everytime you need to wait in the queue. Anyhow, no problem, it’s worth of it. Staff could be more friendly, although I don’t have anything special against them, maybe some charm was missing. Beer is great, if could only try all of them...

A pleasant surprise find in the Atlanta airport. Coming from Mnpls and not having Sweetwater brews available there, and finding a couple of highly rated Sweetwater brews on tap like the IPA and the RyeIPA, I didn’t feel totally jipped to be paying $6.50 for a pint. Small bar with a couple rows of small 2-person tables. Cramped and packed, even at 11am on a Friday. The overall rating is unfortunate in that it scores poorly from ambiance and value perspectives, but scores highly in service. The draft selection is small (6), and one of the taps was out, which is unnacceptable for a brewery’s draft house with only 6 selections (one of which is Coors Light). But I didn’t hammer it too much on selection because there were 4 different Sweetwater brews on, at least two of which were highly rated. Had the chilli with my beer, which was reasonably priced $7.70, but undersized (the bowl of chili) although there was a heaping pile of tortilla chips. Something seemed slightly off about my IPA (tap line issue?), but overall, for an airport brewpub there are few better that I’ve found.

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.

This is an airport bar that has Sweetwater beers on tap, plus a bar and the usual bar food. Nice for an airport, but really not that different from other airport bars. The beer is very good though.

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

The selection wouldn’t be rated this high if this weren’t in an airport. Decent selection of house beers, and service was efficient. Food was about as good as you can expect from an airport restaurant.

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.

Pretty standard airport bar, but clean and friendly with decent service. Prices are on the high side, but not bad for an airport. If you have some time to kill in the Atlanta airport, this is a good place to hang out.

(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.
