Default Sweetwater Brewery

This atlanta brewery is getting pretty popular here in the southeast, don't know if you guys have tried it but the Sweetwater 420 extra pale ale is pretty tasty. Anyone else tried it? Check out thier site www.sweetwaterbrew.com.

I have a Sweetwater 420 pint glass from the Fox and Hound Pub ($2 Tuesday) in Birmingham, AL.

I asked to pay for it and the guy said just put it in your pocket.

I've had both the 420 and the Blue @ Bonnaroo in Tenn and was impressed. They were some of the featured microbrews that the beer stands had. I liked the 420, and thought the blue was nice and refreshing. I might have a different opinion if I try it again with a solid 8 hours of sleep, no drugs in my system, and someplace to sit down out of the 110 degree tenn sun...

I love sweetwater, been drinking it for quite some time. If you catch somebody at their brewery at 4:20 in the morning they will give you a free case. I'm not sure who you catch I just remember a guy telling me that then showing me the goods he had just gotten.

I love the blue, the IPA and the 420. They are the primary beers that turned me onto micro brews when I was younger. Great beers. I often compare them as an east coast sierra nevada.
