So Long Summer Elite Event at SweetWater Brewery
195 Ottley Drive NE
Atlanta, GA 30324 USA
Beer. BBQ. People. Party. And plenty of room for all of the above.
DBA's pork was moist and delicious. Not a fan of the cheese on the corn, but that's the only thing of theirs I had that wasn't very good. The folks working the tables did a great job moving us through with a smile. We had been warned there would be snacks, and here's a full meal!
And the beer… It's Sweetwater. It's good. Really good. They use quality ingredients, even down to hand-picked blueberries. I actually like their blueberry beer; it lacks the artificial, astringent quality I've tasted in others. The Sweetwater Blue doesn't have much of a blueberry *taste*, but rather a blueberry smell atop a good IPA. Their dank tank beer right now also has touch of blueberry in an interesting wheat + Belgian yeast. No direct berry at all, but all around great. And the Motor Boat is a nice ESB.
The tour convinced me they're moving upwards without sacrificing their standards. Good stuff. I wish them continued success.
Great finally putting real people with names & avatars. Kathleen knows how to throw a party…
