This was the second Sweetwater bar in Atlanta airport that we visited - the one in terminal A was too busy - and we did manage to get a seat here. It’s a cramped space with a lot of tables jammed in and the numerous suitcases & other assorted luggage didn’t help. Rather chaotic all round. Not a very comfortable spot to to have a a pre-flight beer but the solid enough line up of standard Sweetwater beers on tap make it a decent option in airport bar terms. I think we had a bite to eat but it obviously didn’t make much of an impression as I can’t remember what it was.
Visited here many times, just never rated it. Has six Sweetwaters on tap, five regular and one seasonal. Fast prompt service - they know you are in a hurry, Very reasonable prices when compared to other places in the airport. Pints are $6.50 and you can get a dozen boneless wings and fries for only $9.99. Beats the hell out of Gordon Biersch. I’ll be back!
Perfectly set up across from my gate. Nice to have some craft beer options in the airport and my first time trying SweetWater. Six of their beers on tap with a couple other macros and limited bottles. Prices were a bit high, but $6.50 a pint isn’t highway robbery.
Good place for an airport brewpub. 6 of their beers on tap - 5 standard (Blue, 420, IPA, Brown, Pils) and 1 rotating seasonal (Road Trip when I was there yesterday). Their beers are all very good. Food was standard airport fare - burgers, sandwiches, a couple salads, apps, not a huge menu but good enough. Definitely worth a trip in if you are at the ATL airport.
I mean its in an airport. Price is higher, how can you have ambiance, and selection is weak. That being said there are a handful of sure to be fresh Sweetwater beers on tap. So it is a better choice than anywhere else in the ATL.
Atlanta is a huge airport but it’s possible to move fairly quickly and easily between concourses once you’re past security so we headed down to the Sweetwater place in concourse A (number 25). It was busy and cramped, with the tables all cluttered together - not a very relaxing environment but OK for a drink and a bite to eat before boarding our flight. There are six or seven taps and around ten bottles.

There are two Sweetwater Draft Houses in the airport and they are almost identical. I stopped at this one during an hour and a half layover. It is really nice to have good beer readily available at the ATL airport. Happy Ending was available on draft in pints for $6. That’s a killer deal, airport or no. The best thing is the table next to me was buying $7 12oz. bottles of Mic Ultra. Go figure.
