Summer Sippin' Roswell—a three-month, craft beverage making competition held by Roswell Inc., the city's accredited economic development organization, and Visit Roswell, the city's destination marketing organization—officially wrapped on August 31 and what an exciting finish it was! Fresco Cantina Grille, winner of the 2020 "Best Sip in Roswell", took the crown back from the 2021 champ Hugo Oyster Bar, who was this year's first runner up. Additionally, in the non-alcoholic category, Pop's Coffee Co took first place with their iced Strawberry Matcha.

An all around successful event, this year's 50+ participating restaurants brought in a total of 1,952 ratings submitted on the Summer Sippin' app or website. That's a 64% increase in ratings compared to last year's competition which had 50 participating restaurants.
