Sweetwater Grass MonkeySweetwater Grass MonkeyBrewery History

SweetWater’s roots began back in Boulder, Colorado in the early 90’s while Freddy Bensch and Kevin McNerney were roommates at the University of Colorado, Boulder. After visiting Atlanta during the 96 olympics they realized the town was in much need of a west coast style brewery and decided they would be the guys to do it. They opened in early 1997.

Tasting Notes

Get sprung this spring with this funky monkey of a wheat ale. A big stash of Lemondrop hops were added to the kettle and the dry hop, delivering a big citrus blast. Lemongrass herbs were added for a refreshing twist and exotic aroma. The light malt bill lets the piney, grassy, lemony notes shine. Light in body with bright citrus notes, this is an extremely complex but very easy drinking brew.
