Atlanta’s SweetWater Brewing Company will begin distributing its products in Lousville in November. It’s been coming for a while now, with distribution to Lexington and the northern part of the state. Now we’ll be able to get six-packs in stores, with more to follow.
I’m going to just paste the full press release here for all the details:
“Now that we’ve successfully launched Lexington and Northern Kentucky, we’re finally ready to venture into Cardinal Country with River City Distributing,” said Vice President of Sales for SweetWater Brewing Company Dave Guender. “Louisville has been on our radar for a while now, and we’re rolling into the market just in time for football season and college hoops around the corner.”
- 420 Extra Pale Ale – SweetWater’s 420 Extra Pale Ale is a West Coast style pale ale with big hops and a crisp finish. First brewed on April 20, 1997, this beer has developed quite the following in the Southeast. 420 is extremely well-balanced which makes it a perfect introduction to a new town…that’s why we say “drink ‘em if you got ‘em!”
- SweetWater Blue – SweetWater Blue is a unique, lighter-bodied wheat ale enhanced with a hint of fresh blueberries. This brew’ll give folks a good whiff of a blueberry influence, with a subtle taste and an extra clean finish. This ain’t no fruit beer, but it is our breakfast beer, and perfect for hanging outside on a Kentucky derby day.
- SweetWater IPA – This mammoth India Pale Ale (IPA) is dry-hopped to the gills, delivering a kick-you-in-the-teeth hop chop. The brew is unfiltered and, like all of our beers, always unpasteurized to leave all the natural flavors intact. SweetWater IPA recently won first place in a blind tasting against 15 of the best IPAs in the country held by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
- SweetWater Tackle Box – The SweetWater Tackle Box variety pack is a hefty 12-pack collection featuring three of SweetWater’s favorite year round brews, along with a fourth style of a little something special in each box.
