SweetWater Brewing Company Announces Spring Lineup

ATLANTA – SweetWater Brewing Company (“SweetWater”) announces its spring seasonal line-up, including made-to-share variety 12-packs: IPA Variety Pack and Tacklebox Variety Pack, which make sampling two of SweetWater’s newest IPAs, H.A.Z.Y. IPA and High Light Lo-Cal Easy IPA, a breeze. SweetWater’s new line-up also features two limited-run additions: spring seasonal Troptimistic Wheat Ale and a celebratory 24th Anniversary Barrel-aged Sour Hazy IPA released in honor of SweetWater’s anniversary this month. Here for a good time but not a long time, both new brews are available now in SweetWater’s taproom in Atlanta, and at select bars, restaurants, and retail establishments.

Troptimistic Wheat Ale

Coming out of the winter doldrums, it’s high time for something light, bright and optimistic: introducing Troptimistic Wheat Ale. SweetWater’s newest American Wheat Ale combines tropical vibrancy and easy drinkability for a thirst-quenching liquid. With natural passionfruit and kiwi flavors, Troptimistic is the perfect sessionable beer to get into a spring state of mind. “This tropical American Wheat is hopped with Eldo and Sultana, delivering a refreshingly bright blast of tropical fruit, pineapple, pear and watermelon. Seasonals are our playground to have a little fun — we thought about drinking beers during a round of golf, out on the water as the weather changes, or on the beach during spring break while creating Troptimistic,” says Brian Miesieski, Chief Marketing Officer of SweetWater Brewery. Enjoy this island inspired escape now through mid-May.
