Abstract Text:

This tour will take us on a ride to two unique Atlanta breweries. The tour’s first stop is at SweetWater brewery, who has been brewing artisanal craft beer since 1997. You’ll learn about how protecting our waterways is a cause really close to their hearts, because you can’t make good beer without good water. For more than a decade, Sweetwater brewery has been teaming up with Chattahoochee Riverkeeper and Waterkeeper Alliance to try to do their part to help raise funds and awareness for the great work they do. We will dive deeper into what each organization, including SweetWater, continues to do to support clean water while touring the brewery! After our visit to Sweetwater, will swing over to the west end to sample some of Monday Night Brewing’s delicious and innovative brews while learning about their sustainable practices. This tour includes entrance and 2 pints per person at each brewery. You’ll also receive water, snacks and a koozie.
