Wrecking Bar Strong Beer Fest

The inaugural one-of-a-kind Georgia beer festival in which every beer being poured is over 8% ABV. For this inaugural year, all beers featured will be from GA breweries. We anticipate over 20 breweries and brewpubs to participate; with over 40 unique high-gravity beers that can’t be purchased anywhere else!

When:

Saturday, December 7, 2013 from Noon to 4pm.

Where:

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

Why:

All proceeds, after expenses, for this festival will be given 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 2014 GA House and Senate Legislation dockets will be HB314 and SR174, which if passed, would allow breweries and brewpubs to sell limited amounts of beer retail from their establishments for customers to take home.

How:
