SweetWater Brewery's Brew Your Cask Off is coming!

Me and SweetWater co-founder Freddy Bensch trippin' out at 2010's Brew Your Cask Off


SweetWater Brewery's Brew Your Cask Off tickets go on sale December 1st
Your homey Ale Sharpton will be one of the judges

Yep, you get a glass too!
Local celebrities, restaurants, homebrewers and specialties from SweetWater brewery brew up 80 one-time-only casks that include some of the craziest concoctions under the sun--all for the love of brewing, partying and in the name of charity. I had so much fun judging last year's first installment of SweetWater's Brew Your Cask Off last year and I happily accepted the invitation to do it again on March 5th, 2011! Besides sipping ales made with stuff like jalapenos, chocolate, fruit, chili powder, etc. (they get crazy widdit, trust me!), there will be grub, music and hopefully the March Madness games on the flat screens inside the tasting room (damn Kansas blew up my bracket last year!).
The Atlanta weather was beautiful in March this year and it should be another day in paradise in 2011. See ya there!

ATLANTA— SweetWater is brewing up plenty reasons to look forward to 2011 with two of Atlanta’s favorite annual festivals coming up this spring. In March celebrate cask ale at its finest with SweetWater Brewing Company’s “Brew Your Cask Off” Cask Ale Festival. Enjoy unlimited samples of “Real Ale” created by more than 80 special guest brewers including SweetWater retailers, a few celebs, media folk & home brewers (all under the watchful eye of SweetWater of course!). Also, SweetWater’s award winning line-up will be flowing and the brewery will be open for tours throughout the event. For more information, visit www.brewyourcaskoff.com. Tickets sold out earlier this year so don’t wait and buy today. Did we mention they make a perfect gift for that beer lover you know?


April 15-17 kicks off the 7th Annual 420 Fest in Candler Park. Two days just wasn’t enough to get our SweetWater fix in 2010 so this year we added an additional day of 420 fun! The three-day music and arts festival features live music, great food, environmental & educational activities and of course, SweetWater’s lip smackin’ brews. For more information, visit www.sweetwater420fest.com.


Brew Your Cask Off and SweetWater 420 Fest are Happy Ending Productions events.


About SweetWater Brewing Company: SweetWater Brewing Company is an Atlanta-based craft brewery specializing in aggressive West Coast style beers.

SweetWater also features a Catch and Release series of beers available on a limited basis throughout the year, and an experimental, one-time-only Dank Tank series.
