So umm, is it safe to say that beer festival season has officially begun? Why yes, yes it is, and it’s kicking off with a bang folks. For all my Atlanta-based brew fans, I’ve got yet another festival to tell you about. On Saturday, March 2nd, the Taste & Brews Festival will head to the Atlanta Food Truck Park & Market for five hours worth of beer tastings and edible samples from Yumbii, Sweet Auburn Barbecue, WOW, Happy Belly, and a bevy of other food trucks. The cool part about this festival is that they’ll be pairing specific types of beer with each food truck sample. Here’s a small look at the pairings you can expect:
Yumbii – Beef or Tofu Tacos (Pairing Beer – Lager)
WOW – 20 hr Smoked pork served over stone ground cheese grits and topped with house made Chipotle Cream and BBQ sauce (Paring Beer – Pilsner)
Sweet Auburn BBQ – Smoked Pork Baskets w/ Toast and Pear Slaw (Pairing Beer – Pilsner)
Masala Fresh Indian Street Food – Chicken Tiki Masala with Rice and Samosa Bite (Pairing Beer, IPA)
Tickets to the Taste & Brews Festival are $45 in advance and $55 at the door. Oh, and I was able to secure a pretty nice discount of $15 for you guys if you use Lushworthy as the promo code. Be sure to purchase your ticket ASAP because that discount will go down to $10 on Wednesday and then $5 the week after! Head to Xorbia.com to purchase your ticket(s).
