Sweetwater IPA - Judged Best IPA in the Country


SweetWater IPA judged to be the Best IPA in the Country

Victorious Among 16 of the Best in the US 

SweetWater IPA took on 15 of the best IPA's in the country and came out on top.  Bragging rights are in order for the hometown kids as SweetWater's IPA bested an acclaimed list of some of the most repected beers from some of the most repected breweries in the country.

Dogfish Head 60 minute, Stone IPA, Boulder Mojo, Victory Hop Devil, Lagunitas IPA, Sierra Nevado Torpedo were some of the headliners going into this winner take all judging - March Hoppy Madness style.

The AJC assembled a mixed panel of beer judges, writers, and critics to taste their way through 8 Brews from the West and 8 from the East to narrow it down to an elite 8, followed with their version of the Final 4

Lee Dickson, beer manager at Brick Store Pub in Decatur, served as steward, set up the tasting, and made sure there was no dirty fighting - and as most of you know if you have had the opportunity to try it

SweetWater IPA
"The Beer You've Been Training For!"
was the big winner.
