Today marks 15 years since SweetWater Brewing Company officially sold its first drop of beer from its original brewery on Fulton Industrial Boulevard. Fast forward , and the Atlanta-based brewery is listed as the 27th largest craft brewery in the nation and growing faster than ever before. To celebrate, Sweetwater is hosting a shindig at its newly expanded brewery at 195 Ottley Drive along with a special ale created just for the occasion.

Festivities will take place Saturday (Feb. 18) from 2 – 6 p.m. at the brewery and will feature music from the band Like a Locomotive, tours of the facility and samplings of SweetWater’s brews. The 15th anniversary bash will be the first time the public can catch a glimpse of the brewery’s new expansion space, boasting an 88,000-square-foot addition to the original facility. An unveiling of the completed expansion will follow later this year.
