Seeking rain and beer in Atlanta

Just back from a visit to Atlanta, a city that is worried about drying up. Since Lake Lanier, the city's main source of drinking water, is almost down to the level known as "the dead pool," I drank the local beer, not the water. Ironically one of the local breweries is named "SweetWater." Sampled their winter seasonal, Festive Ale; their pilsner, Road Trip; and my favorite, their Georgia Brown, a mild yet nutty brown ale... Also had an Octoberfest (that's the way they spell it in Atlanta), made by Red Brick, another local craft brewer . I drank it at a restuarant called Six Feet Under. My sources tell me that Sonny Perdue -- the Governor of Georgia, who regularly prays for rain -- likes to visit a Six Feet Under restaurant and eat the catfish platter. Not sure if Sonny drinks the local water or the "SweetWater." Anyone else been drinking in Atlanta lately? Did I miss any of Atlanta's good beer?
