    Tour worth taking, but only three samples. Bar uncomfortably crowded on Sunday afternoon.

    Very Professional Company, Thanks.

    Do the woodlands tour if you are a beer snob. The sours are outstanding.
  • Michael B.
    Love the atmosphere! Dog friendly
  • Ben G.
    Wonderful beer and wonderful venue. IPA for the boys, blueberry for the girls and 420 for in between.

    Sweet Water Blue, it's my favourite!

    When I first came to SweetWater, it was much smaller & the experience was better. Lately, I've only been able to get 1-2 beers, b/c the lines are so long. Still love their beer though; 420 is my go-to

    One of the largest craft breweries around, with friendly staff, cool merchandise, free tours, and good beer. Love their IPA, and always have new experimental beers to try

    Beer is solid (nothing bad, nothing exemplary). Be prepared for a crowd that is very bro-y, though.

    Fun place, band & good crowd. $10 gets you 6 tastes of 6-8oz ea. 3 pints of craft beer for $10 is not too bad. Fyi - its not Micro, its a full production brewery.

    10 dollars for a rotating pint glass AND basically 3 to 4 beers with super nice bartenders = absolute genius. I will be back several times

    Such a cool concept. Come and taste whatever you want for free. Or buy a souvenir glass for cheap and taste from that. Either way, this place is fun and gets full.

    Best tasting I've been to so far. $10 for a pint glass souvenir and 6 8oz tastings is a great deal. Try the motorboat, whiplash and my favorite, 420 extra pale ale. Festive ale is a must around Xmas.
