Sweetwaters Around the World!


We often wear our Sweetwaters t-shirts and hats when we travel.  Many times people will stop us saying, “Hey, we’ve been to Ann Arbor and we know Sweetwaters!” We’ve also seen others wearing Sweetwaters gear in places outside of Ann Arbor.  So we thought it would be fun to post your photos and stories of you wearing your SW t-shirt, hat, drinking from a SW mug, or enjoying our coffee/tea in some exotic place.

We’ll post all entries right here on our blog so you can show the world how well Sweetwaters travels!  Prizes of coffee, tea, or Sweetwaters gear for the picture taken furthest from Ann Arbor and for the funniest picture/story combo.

Email your pictures and stories to or post them on our Facebook Page.
