Finding Sweetwater beer outside the state gives every Atlantan a twinge of pride, but there’s still nothing better than going straight to the source. Sweetwater Brewery is in the back of Armour Yards, a more industrial area between Buckhead and Midtown, but it’s relatively easy to find, probably because of the giant fish mural on the front of the building. Get here early to snag a table since it’s usually crowded on the weekends, especially in the warmer months when they have bands play on the outdoor patio.
