Georgia has some of the stupidest beer laws I've seen in the country, so for most breweries you can only visit during obscure hours and have to buy a pint glass with drink tickets because breweries aren't allowed to directly sell consumers beer. While ever time I've been here it's been packed, and has been enjoyable, I don't understand why... More

Go with friends and enjoy yourselves. The brewery is a bit different than other breweries I have visited. Upon entrance, you purchase tickets. These tickets are then used as tender for beers at the bar. This process eliminates the need to pay in cash and thus speeds up the lines at the bar. I don't recall seeing any food and... More

You have to like beer to enjoy the place and if you do it is worth the trip. Beer from the tap always taste better and great to hear and see how if all started

Unfortunately we didn't get to tour the facility. We were there for a private party. It was dark when we got there and we had a hard time finding the brewery as out of town visitors. Get better signage, Sweetwater! But the beer was good and the facility was outstanding. If you like beer, go!

We had a work group do the VIP tour. Carrington was very easy to work with to set everything up. Everyone had a great time and enjoyed the BBQ from Fox Bros. The price was very reasonable.

Private tours are available and was setup for our big group ahead of time. So many different varieties of beer are available on tap and the merchandise store has some great items at very... More

Been to a few breweries and distilleries over the years but none with a crowd like Sweetwater. It was a decent little tour but most people seem to come just to hang out and get 6 beers. We opted for the souvenir glasses so it costs 10 bucks each which is a deal considering how much they pour for your... More

Great way to spend a few hours in Atlanta. The beer is great, the atmosphere is good. We do feel a bit old here, huge greek presence. Get there a bit early or you will spend most of the 2 hours in line, it gets crowded. Tried the new "Spinnerbait" beer which is now my favorite. The tour is very... More

Went here for the Brew Your Cask Off event on November 8th. Amazing! There were over 90 different cask brews made only for this competition by local bars and breweries. Everything for Sours to Stouts and everything in between. Sweetwater is an awesome brewery with great staff. A must see when visiting Atlanta.
