Winner of the Jam Cruise Sail Away Contest

Big thanks to over 2000 of you that entered the trip of a lifetime contest for a spot for 2 on Jam Cruise 9. We used this cash machine/fish bowl and dropped all the entries for a spin in the cyclone of good times and out popped our winner.
Laura Strain, from right here in Atlanta, was our big winner – she now has the tough task of sifting through her crush of friend requests to decide who gets to go on the big ol boat of heady tunes this January with her. (if you’re a friend of hers, she told me that bribes are accepted!)

Congrats Laura! Looking forward to your visit to the brewery to pick up all the SweetWater schwag, so that you will be styling on cruise and drinking the brews you’ve been training for!

Join Us at the 2nd Annual Atlanta Santa Speedo Run!

What’s better than stripping down to a swimsuit and running 1.5 miles through Atlanta in the middle of December? Doing it for charity!

SweetWater returns this year as the official beverage sponsor of the Atlanta Santa Speedo Run, a fun run that begins at 1 pm on Saturday, December 11 at historic Manuel’s Tavern on North Ave. 100% of the proceeds will benefit Camp Twin Lakes, provider of camps for kids with special needs and serious illnesses that are well-equipped for those kids’ health requirements, teaching them confidence and giving them a much-needed recreational outlet.

You can register at Camp Twin Lakes’ website. See the photos from last year on SweetWater’s Flickr.

In ASSR’s first year (2009), 180 runners raised more than $42,000 to benefit CHRIS Kids, Inc. In 2010, our goal is to raise $65,000 for Camp Twin Lakes. Check out the Facebook event page, and we’ll see (all of) you on the 11th
