Atlanta Winter Brew Festival popping off at the Masquerade this Saturday from 5-10 pm. I undoubtedly will be there—especially for the VIP "Beer Geek" section that will be featuring select goodies from Southern Tier out of New York (I loooove the Unearthly IPA), Terrapin limited joints like the Double Feature, some seriously potent Samuel Adams brews, Abita, and Wild Heaven's dynamic duo that I have proudly raved about: the Ode to Mercy and Invocation. You have to get these tickets in advance (if there are any left) and this opens at 4.
But don't trip if you just go to the main area, because besides the celebration of Georgia's awesome breweries like Terrapin (Athens), SweetWater (The A), Red Brick (The A) and Wild Heaven (The Dec), New Belgium, Magic Hat, Peak Organic, Yuengling and Southern Tier will be in the house as well. Live music will be played while you get your sip on and possibly, if weather permits, some beer pong and other shenanigans going on, so bring a super cool friend who will offer to drive, cab it or walk. Just be responsible so you can really kick it!
