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.
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.
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.
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.
