Don’t Float the Mainstream!
SweetWater brewery has been makin’ tasty brews in the heart of the south since 1997. What started as a pipe dream of two college buddies has turned into a dream job full of great adventures and lip-smackin’ beers. What would you expect from a couple of boys with more of a hankering for beers than for books.
At SweetWater we like to say we’re not here for a long time, we’re here for a good time. It’s not just something that we say though, it’s how we live.
If you’re up for a good time, come check us out at our brewery in Atlanta, every spring at our raging 420 festival, or wherever the fishing is good in your neck of the woods.
Remember, don’t float the mainstream as we all find our path in life, and drink ‘em if you got ‘em.Flick it!
