SweetWater Brewing Company is located in an industrial area of Atlanta. It started as a small brewery and has grown to be quite large. You can stop by the brewery during their limited hours and taste all their fabulous beers and take a tour of the brewery.

You can take the tour for free and have six (yes, SIX!) samples of beer. Or you can pay $10 for an awesome pint glass to try your samples in.
Our huge beer samples! And mine were free!
We enjoyed our samples and then saw the brewery employee walking around with a sign for a tour. So we joined the line following her and headed in to the brewery.
We learned all about the history of SweetWater and how they make their beer. It was really super loud so I didn’t catch it all, but I’m pretty sure some college students in Colorado dropped out of school and became awesome brewers.
After the tour, we walked around inside the tasting room and checked out the awesome outside area.
We saved the cask beer for last, because we generally really don’t like it. But holy cow! Best beer of the day! It was so good and we were super surprised/super pissed we saved it for last!
I’m definitely going back every time we visit Atlanta. It was really awesome and I drank for free!

What a great review! I want to go there right now
We are planning on doing the tour next year, when our Louisville Cardinal football team plays Auburn in the Georgia Dome. We toured Monday Night Brewing the last time we were in Atlanta. Cool place that evolved from a Bible study. True story. Link to video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=auBLdxziBso
Wow that place looks awesome! I love the tie taps and the mannequins hanging from the ceilings. That place is in Atlanta?! I’m definitely going my next visit there. Thanks for the tip and thanks for reading!
