We are so excited that fall is fast approaching – and that this great beer festival is now just a month away! HOToberFest not only brings 170 craft beers, but it also has great food from locals like Vickery’s, Matador Cantina, The Shed, as well as German brats and some great BBQ. Yum. And of course there will be live music from Michael Tolcher and the Pros, Caroline and the Ramblers and others.
And then of course there is the tasting competition, which is the largest consumer-judged competition in the country. It will feature loads of incredible rare and one of a kind beers brewed just for the festival, as well as some great micro-brews, old favorites and a couple of breweries that have just debuted in Atlanta.
For those who want a bit more of a fancy-pants experience, you should spend the extra dollars and get yourself a VIP ticket, which gets you into the festival an hour early, access to 40 rare and exclusive beers not available for the rest of the festival-goers, access to the Firkin VIP Tent (which will have a nice big flatscreen TV showing SEC football) and VIP-only restrooms. Sounds like a perfect day to us.
You can buy the tickets at the link below (tickets bought in advance are $10 cheaper than those at the gate!), but we also have a pair of VIP tickets to give away to one lucky beer lover. Fill out the form at the bottom of the page for your chance to win.
