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.
