HOToberFest is the largest Consumer-Judged Beer Tasting & Competition, combined with Atlanta’s best Sustainable Festival and a neighborhood festival in Atlanta’s historic Glenwood Park Neighborhood. Taking place on October 2, the festival will feature 170 craft beers, live music, artist market, food vendors, kid’s area and more!
Not only will there be incredible beer for tastings, but there will also be delicious food from locals 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 an exclusive 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.
