Definitely worth visiting this modern and sophisticated brewery. The bottling plant is superb in its sophistication and technology. The beer quality is very good. For beer lovers, this is a must

We had such fun on this tour. Before and afterward sampled all of their brews. The staff is great there and they are so laid back and friendly. Great way to spend a few hours, having fun. Highly recommended.

My husband is always in search of a good IPA and I like a light lager. The tour was short but knowledgable. Got a glass and tickets for beer. We hired a cab to take us to the brewery and bring us back to the hotel. Good idea! Met a lot of nice people, drank some great bee-uh, and enjoyed... More

In Atlanta on business and read review of area breweries; this was the only one we could find open on a Wednesday. For a fee you receive a glass and tickets for up to 6 samples. We could not drink that much beer! The place was packed; the crowd mixed young and old. The beer was excellent and enjoyed by... More

My husband and I decided to check it our while we were in Atlanta for the weekend. It was crowded but that's to be expected. The staff was really nice and I really enjoyed the guy that gave us the tour. My husband enjoys their beer and liked sampling the few flavors he hadn't tried yet. All in all we... More

We have been here before and after they expanded. It's a great daytime drunk... For dirt cheap. Seems to have lost some of its fun factor and start up feel sine they have expanded. Still a good time, great variety of beers.

We had been looking forward to coming here to see the place and it didn't disappoint. $10 gets you a SweetWater Glass to keep and 6 tasting tickets. It was crowded even on a rainy day, but definitely still manageable. We didn't have to wait any time to get through the doors, and the servers kept the lines moving. Got... More

Sweetwater is always a good time. Ten bucks buys you 6 half-pint pours that you have approximately 3 hours to drink. There are a few things that immediately stand out about Sweetwater compared to the other breweries in town. First is the size. Since the remodel they have hugely expanded this facility. I don't know the statistics but they are... More
