Winter Beer Carnival is around the corner!

The best way to say “Peace out!” to winter is with brew!

What better way is there to say “Peace out!” to Old Man Winter and all of that ice storm b.s. than downing some of the world’s finest beers with fellow imbibers who know how to kick it? In Atlanta’s last winter-themed brew event of the 2011, let’s go out with a bang inside and outdoors this upcoming weekend at the 2nd Annual Winter Beer Carnival on Saturday, February 19th in Midtown at the corner of Spring Street and 8th Street.

As you well know, if beer is involved, I am probably there and that was just the case this time last year during the inaugural Winter Beer Carnival. My man Kevin Redmon, the general manager of Premier Events, along with his crew, know how to throw a party and last year’s sold-out kickoff was paaaaaacked with cool cats getting their sip on! I had a ball kicking it in both the VIP section (starting at 2 p.m.) and general admission (starting at 3 p.m.) sipping on some of the finest lagers and ales, playing all kinds of games and enjoying the carnival atmosphere. Plus, the weather was perfecto!

This year, they are getting even crazier with DJs, huge tents, more games and, oh yeah, 100-plus different beers to choose from. Amazingly, there are reportedly a couple of tickets left so you better score them prior to the event. Trust me, it sucks to be turned away, and see everybody and their momma kicking it on the other side of the fence.Trust me, it hurts! Don’t feel that pain this year.

Here’s the link with the particulars:

  1. Indeed, Ale. Despite the insanely long line to get in for the regular gen-admissioners, this was a happenin' time.

    It was crowded but well spread out, had cool games, fantastic beer, and a generally fun vibe.

    Sucks it changed locales, last year's was pretty unique...but I can see how they'd need more room.

    I'd be there, but headed to Vegas.

    You going to Brew Your Cask Off? I'll be at that.

  2. Yep! I am judging it!
    Should be hella fun. Did you see the article Scout Mob did on me? They did a great job!

  3. Best beer festival ever! Great beers, loved VIP and...oh...I met you and hung out afterward. Hello hun! :-D
