Suwanee Beer Fest Shifts Date for Better Weather

Submitted by on March 28, 2012 – 6:00 amNo Comment

By Tonya Vots, correspondent

The inaugural Suwanee Beer Festival was one of the better events on the Metro Atlanta beer fest circuit last year. But in late July, the heat was almost unbearable and because of this, the learning curve steepened unexpectedly.  To preserve the future of the event, the organizers opened their ears, eyes, inboxes and Facebook to suggestions.

Returning this year with a new and improved festival, the Suwanee Beer Fest is slated for Saturday, March 31, 2012, at the Town Center Park in Suwanee, GA.  Gates open at 1 p.m. for all ticket holders.  Advance tickets are available online for $35, at the door the cost increases to $45 and designated drivers get in for $10.  This year’s festival is sponsored by Veugeler Design Group and The Beer Growler in addition to several other local contributors.

Moving the event to March allows the festival to offer spring seasonal brews and early bird summer seasonal releases. The spring date grants the fest an additional bonus of helping kick off the 2012 Atlanta beer fest season in style. Fest-goers will enjoy more seasonal temperatures, which will be conducive to sampling an assortment of the more than 250 different beers predicted to be served from 101 breweries. Live music will emanate from the park’s vast amphitheatre, and patrons will be able to select food and desserts from an assortment of food vendors or from the local culinary establishments that surround the park.

The website at www.suwaneebeerfest.com lists more than 75 breweries including locals Sweetwater Brewing, Red Brick Brewing, Red Hare Brewing, Terrapin Brewing, Jailhouse Brewing, Wild Heaven Craft Beers, Odempsey’s and Monday Night Brewing.  New to this year’s line-up will include Cigar City Brewing, Ass Kisser, Cricket Hill and Penn Brewery.
