The SweetWater Brewing Company, LLC (‘SweetWater Brewing’ or ‘SweetWater), a subsidiary of Tilray Brands, Inc.

‘METRO ATLANTA CEO’ stated that with this new partnership, sports fans and concert goers can now enjoy SweetWater beers throughout the stadium and at the new flagship SweetWater bars located on levels 100 and 300.

The SweetWater Brewing Company is a craft brewery founded in 1997 by Freddy Bensch and Kevin McNerney in Atlanta, Georgia (US). SweetWater’s beers are unpasteurized and distribution is limited to select States.

The 71,000-capacity Mercedes-Benz Stadium is a multipurpose stadium located in Atlanta, Georgia, United States. Opened in August 2017 as a replacement for the Georgia Dome, it serves as the home stadium of the Atlanta Falcons of the National Football League (NFL) and Atlanta United FC of Major League Soccer (MLS).

The 71,228-capacity Georgia Dome was a domed stadium in the Southeastern United States. It was demolished in the year 2017.

The company sent out a statement which read, “We are purposeful in bringing local Atlanta businesses inside the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, not only to support locally-owned businesses, but to expose guests from all over to the best of what Atlanta has to offer, SweetWater is a premier example of Atlanta… This is another exciting new partnership as we continue our coast-to-coast expansion and serve our great beer to sports fans across the country. SweetWater has deep roots in Atlanta, and serving our beer at the City’s premier entertainment destination is one of the exciting new ways we’re engaging with the community.”

‘METRO ATLANTA CEO’ further stated that SweetWater’s partnership with the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, which has hosted more than 260 events and 230 million guests since opening in 2017, creates an authentically local experience at the world-class venue. SweetWater was founded in Atlanta in 1997, and the brewery’s award-winning craft beer quickly developed a cult following and helped shape the vibrant craft-beer scene that exists in the City today.

As part of the partnership, SweetWater is also the presenting sponsor and official beer partner of the ATLive concert series and the Summer Movie Experience at The Home Depot Backyard adjacent to the Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

The ATLive, a multigenre concert series developed and promoted by the AMB Sports and Entertainment, is the premier destination concert series for the City of Atlanta and the Southeast.

Said Ty Gilmore, President, U.S. Bee, at Tilray Brands, SweetWater’s parent company, “This is another exciting new partnership as we continue our coast-to-coast expansion and serve our great beer to sports fans across the country.
