This Thursday, join us and Trish from Sweetwater Brewing in Atlanta for a sampling of liquid goodness.

Blue: “Always the funky favorite at any outdoor beer festival, SweetWater Blue is a unique light-bodied ale with a hint of fresh blueberries. It begins with an appealing blueberry aroma and finishes as a surprisingly thirst-quenching ale.” [4.9% abv]

420: “SweetWater 420 Extra Pale Ale, our most popular brew, is a tasty West Coast Style Pale Ale with a stimulating hop character and a crisp finish.” [5.4% abv]

LowRYEder: “A flame throwin’ Rye IPA ignited by a 25% shot of rye malt and capped by a booty hoppin’ blast of Mt Hood and Centennial hops that makes this IPA bounce!” [6.2% abv]

IPA: “This mammouth India Pale Ale is loaded with intense hop character and subjected to an extensive dry-hopping process. Our IPA is unfiltered and as always, not pasteurized, leaving all the natural flavors intact.”

Happy Ending: “This seasonal ‘Catch and Release’ Imperial Stout is a dry hopped stiffy, leading to an explosive finish that is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.” [9.0% abv]

The Gimp: “A wide open Old Ale, The Gimp is bred to be stashed in a Dank dark cellar only to be brought out for your most special guests! This full-bodied Gimp gives off sweet scents of caramel and toffee and, as legend has it,warm undertones of malt and alcohol balanced by low voltage doses of hops delivering a SHOCKER you’ll actually wan t to receive.Don’t keep The Gimp’s leash too tight, as he will mellow with age and become more experienced the longer he stays locked up in the cellar.Bring out The Gimp!: [10.3% abv]

All that’s new and good in 2013 (so far)
