2014 Atlanta Strong Beer Fest

The 2nd annual, one-of-a-kind Georgia beer festival in which every beer being poured is over 8% ABV. All beers featured will be from Georgia breweries. Over 25 breweries and brewpubs participate; with over 40 unique high-gravity beers that can’t be purchased anywhere else! We will also have a silent auction with beer swag from some of your favorite beer sellers and breweries.

When:

Saturday, December 6, 2014 from Noon to 4pm.

Where:

Wrecking Bar Brewpub, 292 Moreland Ave NE, Atlanta GA 30307. Beers will be pouring at stations in the pub, the Marianna (upstairs event space), and the biergarten.

Why:

A portion of the proceeds will go to the Georgia Craft Brewers Guild(GCBG). The GCBG is the primary organization drafting legislation and lobbying for revisions to GA alcohol codes. Early on the 2015 GA House and Senate Legislation dockets will be bills, which if passed, would allow breweries and brewpubs to sell limited amounts of beer retail from their establishments for customers to take home.
