Day 349 Drink: Sweetwater 2010 Festive Ale
Sweetwater Brewing is the dominant craft brewery in the Atlanta market and you can find their beers spread around the southeastern United States. Even if you are just flying through Jackson Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, you can hit the Sweetwater Draft House in Terminal B.
Sweetwater 2010 Festive Ale is an 8.5 percent alcohol by volume classic winter warmer. The beer pours with a healthy tan head and a translucent brown that lets light waves through. The aroma hints at sweetness and raisins. The beer has a hefty malt base with some roasted nut qualities. There are some background spices that hint at cinnamon.
