Tasting Room and Patio Reel Room


“SweetWater Brewery was awesome! From when we pulled up and were directed where to park, all the way to wrap-up. The facility looked great and the brewery tours made it even more fun. The SweetWater team was fun, congenial, competent – and the beer was tasty. I really appreciated the flexibility with picking a date and with payment options. The contract/packets were also super helpful. SweetWater’s event director is well organized, knowledgeable and helpful throughout the entire process. Our day-of event manager was also a big help at the event.”

-Tracy S. – Corporate Reception

“We hosted our wedding in the “Reel Room” at SweetWater Brewery, and it was amazing! Our guests weren’t quite sure what to expect by going to a reception at a brewery, but almost everyone went out of their way to tell us that it was one of the best wedding receptions they’ve attended. Everyone loved the lighting, atmosphere, and the large deck on the outside. The bartenders were great, and their staff accommodated all of our needs. One of our other friends that is hosting a destination wedding said that our wedding made her want to cancel her wedding and host it at Sweetwater. I can’t say enough how happy I am that we chose Sweetwater as our reception venue.”

-Kellie N. – Wedding Reception/Bride

“Working with SweetWater’s team for our event was truly ideal. This event was one of the first and largest I was assigned to lead for my job, and Carrington was helpful and willing to guide me on everything I would need to make it successful and easy. From asking the right questions to making valuable recommendations, SweetWater nailed it. Our event ended up being twice as large as expected, which required some quick thinking for both my team and SweetWater’s team; however, each of their employees worked diligently to manage the crowd with ease. Even after the event, the crew was willing to help clean up our supplies to make everything easier on us. All in all, events can be stressful on workers and volunteers, and SweetWater made the evening fun and lighthearted, yet still professional.”

-Margaret S. – University Alumni Event

“The room, the staff, the A/V, the tours, and the beer were all exceptional. My guests told me what a wonderful time they had. The balcony on a beautiful night opens a glimpse to the world. I would definitely recommend the location for a fun, fun, fun time.”

-Mary R. – Rehearsal Dinner

“While planning an event solely by yourself, things can get a bit stressful.  The group at SweetWater was beyond excellent to work with and made each step– from the initial walkthrough to the post event follow-up– so easy!  My event was my 10 Year High School Reunion.  Everyone was thrilled with the location (where else can you drink the best beer and go on a tour behind the scenes to see how that beer is made?!)  Carrington and the rest of the event crew was PHENOMENAL!  People are now coming to me with advice on planning their events and I 100% tell them to go to SweetWater!”

-Ariel U. – High School Reunion
