SweetWater Brewing Company, located in Atlanta, Georgia, has been crafting tasty brews in the heart of the South since 1997. Its flagship brands—420 Extra Pale Ale, IPA, TripleTail Tropical IPA, and Blue Wheat Ale—have been leading favorites for consumers who “don’t float the mainstream.” This motto is a tribute to Sweetwater Creek, a tributary of the Chattahoochee River. Brewery co-owner Freddy Bensch gave the SweetWater Brewing Company its name because of his adventurous spirit and love of kayaking Sweetwater Creek.
