Kick it at the Athens Craft Beer Festival NEXT weekend!

Simply put, October is the shizzzznit!

When? October 8th and 9th

There is always something awesome about October. Is it the cool, crisp yet sunny weather? The color change of the foliage? The gangster brew festivals? Or is it because of my birthday on the 8th? Whatever it is, celebrate the month in style with a gang of events that are themed around the suds. It is a beautiful thing I tell ya!

The following is the official press release of the upcoming Athens Craft Beer Festival about a 30-minute drive from Atlanta (depending on who is behind the wheel of course). My boy Eric Johnson—the recipe man behind the awesome brew company Wild Heaven Craft Beers and owner of the famous Trappeze Pub in Athens—has something major to do with this and he knows his beer so it has to be the shizzznit. Oh, and it’s a two-day event that starts on the best day of the year! (Christmas and Thanksgiving are a close second and third.) Anyway, try and make this. It sounds pretty kickass, being held at Hotel Indigo and all, so cop your tickets.

From the homey E-Rock:
“Trappeze is teaming up with Hotel Indigo to put on the ultimate Oktoberfest party! Make plans now to join us for Oktoberfest in Athens. The event will be held at Hotel Indigo and we will be rolling in over 100 of the finest seasonal craft beers available! What better way to try the newest and most exciting beers? There will be no macro beers at this festival - only the craft beers that we feel are representative of the finest beers available anywhere! Tickets are on sale today and space is very limited so reserve your spot today. General admission is $45 and VIP admission is $65. VIP admission allows you access to the Brewmasters forum Saturday evening, access to the VIP tent with rare beers and cask ales as well as admission to the main festival one hour early.
To purchase tickets go to www.athensbeerfestival.com.

The official breakdown on the Festival:
The Athens Craft Beer Festival was born as a collaboration between Trappeze Pub, Athens' premier craft beer venue, and Hotel Indigo-Athens, a modern hotel facility dedicated to environmentally conscious practices and community involvement. The Athens Craft Beer Festival is our way of supporting and promoting our favorite local, independent brewers and celebrating the unique beer scene of Athens, Georgia.
