Cool photos from SweetWater's 17th BDay!

Sunday was nuts at SweetWater's bash!
Before: The homey Freddy Bensch aka "Big Kahuna" saying a 20-second speech at 4:20 p.m. before throwing handfuls of cake at everyone! You see where I was!
After: Freddy caked up! He came all the way upstairs to wipe some of that on us smart, clean folks who watched the whole thing from above! Thanks, Kahuna!
Hey Fellow Craft Beer Sippers!

This past weekend was crazy, including a Cruisin’ For A Brewsin’ to Birmingham, Alabama to cover their burgeoning beer scene—they showed me hella love at Aloft Birmingham, J. Clyde, Good People Brewing, Cahaba Brewing, Trim Tab Brewing —and then driving straight to SweetWater’s 17th Anniversary on Sunday which was CRAZY!

Highlights included special casks, “Big Kahuna” Freddy Bensch throwing handfuls of the custom sheet cakes at the hundreds of folks who surrounded him in the lobby, and their new 17th Anniversary Farmhouse Saison which was very impressive! It was so dope to meet up with all my homies in the beer biz, friends, the SweetWater staff, Xorbia's folks, and meeting cats who have only connected with me via Twitter (@alesharptonand Instagram (@realalesharpton) prior to the bash. 

Here are some super cool and hilarious pictures I took from Sunday (unless I am in 'em). Happy freakin’ birthday SweetWater! 

Cheers!
Ale

All cleaned up!
