Beer, bourbon, and BBQ lovers, it looks like the time for the annual Beer, Bourbon & BBQ Festival has finally come. Please excuse me while I throw hog-shaped confetti in the air in celebration. The annual festival will return to Atlanta on Saturday, March 2 and will again take place in the open area behind Atlantic Station. I had the opportunity to cover the festival last year for Lushworthy and it’s a festival you surely don’t want to miss. The combination of beer, bourbon, and BBQ is absolute perfection and I love the fact that the festival features various seminars, so you might even leave a tad more knowledgeable.
I was on the festival Website earlier today and it looks like tickets for the Atlanta festival are already 69 percent sold out. Don’t freak out (yet), just make sure you head over to BeerAndBourbon.com to purchase your ticket ASAP. Also, there are a variety of tickets for purchase including VIP tickets and Designated Driver tickets.
You gotta love a grown-up carnival, especially one that incorporates various beers. And you’ll find that Lushworthy combination at this week’s Winter Beer Carnivalat Atlantic Station. Taking place on Saturday, February 9th, Atlanta’s Winter Beer Carnival is the glorious event where over 150 brews and carnival games including the beloved Sweetwater Fish Launcher converge for four hours of brew-induced fun.
The beer list for the event continues to grow, but so far the list includes Batch 19, Brooklyn Lager, Guinness, Innis & Gunn, and O’Dempsey’s just to name a few. On top of an extensive list of beer, you’ll also be able to get your hands on samples of Frozen Pints (a personal favorite of mine). Food from various Atlanta-based restaurants will be available for purchase so they’ll be no fear of drinking on an empty stomach.
Tickets for the Winter Beer Carnival range in price from $40 to $60 and can be purchased at WinterBeerCarnival.com. Winter beer festivals seem to be a rarity here in Atlanta so you surely don’t want to miss this one.
