Great Atlanta Beer Fest 2012
I understand there are many beer festival choices for the modern day enthusiast to choose from. Winter & Summer Festivals, Pub Crawls, Brewery Tours and what I like to call the “Kitchen Fridge Tour.” This basically consists of me finding then drinking all the left over beer my friends forget when they come over…My point being, how do you determine which festivals deserve your money, and your kidneys? The top recommendation from me would definitely be the Great Atlanta Beer Fest, September 8th from 3pm- 8pm, hosted by Atlanta Beer Festivals.
Their attention to detail, wide variety of brewers, array of activities and quality choice in music cannot be surpassed. Especially when the venue is held at a local landmark like Turner Field! You can enjoy the atmosphere of the stadium, a converse with your friends over a delicious brew overlooking an empty stadium at dusk! There is no other venue in town that is more appropriate for a festival of this magnitude.
A note from Atlanta Beer Festivals:
“We are proud to announce that the Great Atlanta Beer Fest at Turner Field will return in 2012. This year’s festival will be Saturday, September 8th. Turner Field will provide an outstanding atmosphere for what will soon be the biggest beer festival in all of Atlanta. We will feature 150+ different beers to sample from Atlanta, the Southeast, and all over America. We are adding a small selection of wines this year, and we’ll also have a healthy list of ciders available.
The bulk of the Great Atlanta Beer Fest will take place in the Grand Entry Plaza and Monument Grove. Scout’s Alley will be open and the games will be free for beerfest patrons. College football will be on large 33 foot TV in the plaza as well as the TV’s all over the Chop House, so you won’t miss the day’s action. There will be live music with Ocean Street on the stage of the Grand Entry Plaza.
