SweetWater Brewing Company Tackle Box
Posted by BoaBeerBlog on February 1, 2011
In past trips down South, I’ve sometimes had trouble finding decent beer, but the Southern beer scene is getting better — on my recent trip to Charlotte there was great beer at every turn. One of my go-to breweries when I’m in the Southeast is SweetWater Brewing Company from Atlanta, Georgia.
After having many SweetWater brews on draft during my visit to Charlotte, I left town toting the SweetWater Brewing Company Tackle Box. This mixed 12-pack came with:
- 420 Extra Pale Ale, SweetWater’s most popular brew and a solid West Coast-style Pale Ale (5.4%)
- IPA, flavorful and hoppy, an exceptional IPA (6.4%)
- Georgia Brown, a drinkable Brown Ale (5.1%)
- Exodus Porter, first brewed on Bob Marley’s birthday, this classic Porter is available only in the winter edition of the Tackle Box (6.2%)
I also brought home a six-pack of Blue, a refreshing light-bodied ale (4.9%) with a hint of blueberries (for Beth).
All of the SweetWater brews were excellent, and I wish they were available in the DC area!
