Sweetwater Brewery is the largest of the Atlanta area options for brewery tours/tastings . That being said, this place is very spacious with indoor and outdoor space. It draws a large crowd, but also has the widest variety of beer and has plenty of high quality brews. $10 gets you a souvenir pint glass and 6 tickets. Most beers are worth one ticket with high gravity and special releases worth two. I have never seen their Dank Tank series on tap, but apparently they occasionally have it. I would definitely recommend checking out Sweetwater or going after work while traffic settles down.

Attended one of the "happy hour" tastings that they have at night from 5:50 to 7:30. Ten bucks gets you a pint glass you can keep plus 6 tasting tickets. Pretty good deal.
Weather was great so most people were hanging outside, they had a very good band playing covers of classic rock and blues tunes. They had a couple of corn hole games set up too. Dog friendly outside, as there were a lot of pooches.
Great lineup of diverse styles of beer, so something for everyone. And good quality, no bad beers among the bunch.

I've been to their old place and their "new" place.
They have a very nice tasting room. My main fault with it is that it is very loud and could use some sound absorbing materials. It does tend to get very busy, I recommend getting there early. They have a nice outdoor space. They often have live bands and food trucks present.
The brewery tour is pretty impressive to me, because I've seen where they came from. You see all their tanks, their refrigerated storage, and their bottling line.
Wish I could go more often.

Sweetwater Brewery has really expanded lately. It is a super cool place to visit, however, it is a solely a brewery so there should be no expectations for food. Costs $10 bucks to enter and that price gets you 6 tickets and a free pint glass. These tickets are used to sample the beers and they are plenty. They will have 5-8 beers on tap and sometimes the "Dank Tank" will be on tap. This is a special beer brewed every month by the master brewer. He gets to create his own wild concoction and it is there for the crowd.
With TV's to watch and large bar to taste from, this place gets packed. It's only open on Saturday for tours and sometimes there will be live bands performing outside, depending on the weather. Brewery tours start every 20 minutes. Overall, I would say that if you are in the South and heading up I-85 on Sat, definitely stop by.

$10 for a souvenir glass and six tickets for reasonably portioned samples of their spot on beer (1 ticket each for standard beers, 2 tickets for the high gravity). They also offer free tours (included in the $10) as well as access to two different floors, and an outdoor patio to satisfy those who prefer a dynamic environment while enjoying their brew. Long story short, a great place to visit, or host a party, and drink quality beer.

Really cool place. Went to the brewery when I was in town and took the tour. If I remember correctly the tour cost around $7 and you got a pint glass and 3-4 samples of beers. Sweet Water is really cool place with a really cool vibe. It was a nice day in June and they had a blue grass band playing outside. I tried their 420, Road Trip, Blue, and Exodus. Really enjoyed them but wasn't to crazy about the Blue. The tour was nice and the tour guide was a lot of fun and informative.
