The 11th Annual German Bierfest is in Downtown Atlanta Saturday!



Get your sip on with more than 35 Authentic German Beers, plus grub and music for the full experience!

Whaddup!!!

Atlanta has become one of the top U.S. cities when it comes to beer festivals and this weekend Downtown’s Woodruff Park maintains this thirst-quenching reputation. I am definitely hitting up the 11th Annual German Bierfest to refresh my overseas knowledge regarding 35 authentic German beers being poured from 2 to 7 pm this Saturday.
Besides sippin’ on everything from dunkels to hefeweizens, I will be keeping the belly happy with käsepätzle (a German interpretation of mac and cheese), pretzeln (aka pretzels), sauerkraut, schnitzel and other grub straight from G Land. 
I truly had a ball when I went to Germany on a beer trip a few years ago so I am definitely looking forward to bringing back my memory in full force at this Fest. And did I mention the festive sounds of oompah music and the skyscrapers surrounding the event to further enhance your drinking experience in one of the world’s greatest cities? There’s also a VIPizzle section for the serious imbibers who do it big.
See you there in a lederhosen I hope!
Below is the official press release and information. Get tickets here!

Cheers!
