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

Very nice folks. Great selection of great beers. Wish they were open loner than 430 on a Saturday. Lots of swag to choose from

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

This was a fun place to visit. The brewery far exceeded my expectations based on other breweries I had visited. They were very organized and you even have a free tasting option. There is also a $10 option where you get a souvenir pint glass and 6 tasting tickets which will give you a half fill on your pint glass.... More

We were visiting Atlanta for a short stay and found out that the brewery does free tasting and tours the day we were there from 2:30-4:30. You could also choose an option to pay $10 and receive a souvenir glass along with your samples. Tour was fun, Brian was a great "tour guide!" Such a fun and inexpensive thing to... More
